Do the prices of Datadiscs' records go down eventually. I'd love to get the sonic cd vinyl but noticed it's way more expensive than the others. I understand that it's a preorder and this may be why it's more expensive. I don't need it right now, but it would be nice to get in the future at some point.

Not into Sonic (understatement of the millennia) but that looks like a gorgeous release. Nobody does it better than DD. I'm glad they didn't stick a number on it otherwise I'd be forced to keep the streak alive...

They generally don't sell their limited editions elsewhere, if that matters to you.
Oh yeah, I know. Thankfully, I'm very much fine with black records.

As others mentioned, Mondo puts up Data Discs stuff and it should be priced slightly better due to us not having to pay the shipping. I have a local record chain that may sell these too so if they pop up there I can post a link as well (usually a couple bucks under MSRP and they ship orders over $30 free).

Awesome news, I think this will be the first Vinyl I'll preorder =)
Would be cool if they release the US soundtrack next! I'm one of those weirdos who loves both of them as much as one other, hehe.

Ah that’s good I’ll probably wait a little bit then. I’m from the UK so for once the shipping charge isn’t too bad for me haha, just tight on funds atm.

At the infamous FFVII concert at E3 yesterday they displayed an upcoming Final Fantasy VII picture disc 2LP. There's no info on it yet other than that Sony will seemingly be handling the release. People are speculating that it's either a repress of the original FFVII release with different art or it might be arrangements from the remake.

Sell high, buy low? Hmmm

New info on the FFVII set. Preorders open on July 7, 2019, it's scheduled to release January 31, 2020. It will include music from both the original FFVII and the Remake (presumably one disc for each game). Rumored price is 7777 Yen.

Are these picture discs? They look like they are. Don't those play horribly?

I'm no audiophile but i've got the FF8 picture discs and they sound fine. While you could probably tell the difference on a high end setup, they aren't terrible.

Any way to import this? I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed it
There's plenty of English marketing for these, so I fully expect them to be available on Square's US and EU stores as well, but I guess we'll see.

Yes, they are picture discs. Traditionally these have more surface noise, but lately improvements have been made so they tend to sound alright. No guarantee that this will be the case here. Unfortunately it seems to be made more as a collectible rather than something made for careful listening. A shame since Square did so well with the recent Xenogears and NieR releases.

Just a reminder to all that this is now available.

23$ shipping to the UK...but I love Celeste so much I couldn't say no

EDIT: Black Screen Records has an EU-exclusive variant - https://blackscreenrecords.com/products/celeste-b-sides-by-various-artists
Do note that it doesn’t have the bonus disc. Also, the track listing doesn’t include the last track “First Steps (Piano Only)” for some reason?

(I’m in the US so I bought from STS, but noticed that so I thought I’d share.)

Gotta say, I like the BSR variant best, plus shipping and tax from STS brings the total to $70 for a single copy, compared to BSR's $45. That flexi though, I know it'll sound terrible, but I still kinda want one.

I finally pulled the trigger on Mother (pink) and Snatcher (splatter red) today. Don’t think there will anything else I will get really besides numbered Data Discs releases.

I didn't even know about this, so, of course, I've just ordered it along with the sheet music (I recently got a keyboard and am attempting to learn from scratch)

So I now have the standard OST, the B-Sides, and Piano Collections on vinyl, the Prescription for Sleep release by Gentle Love on CD, and the Fangamer Collector's Edition on the way too, which includes the OST on CD.

I guess I kinda dig Celeste eh
