We would like to inform you that we are in the early stages of opening an operation in The Netherlands, and it’s something we are pretty excited about. Our goal with that is to provide cheaper, faster, and better shipping to Europe (from within Europe). Once this is up and running, we expect to be able to adjust rates down across the board.
Thanks for sharing, glad that's cleared up now.blog update on the whole shipping thing
That's what I am thinking as well. As much as I welcome this, I could even imagine total prices going up instead of down for us. Shipping within Europe is not cheap.Will the games not be more expensive if they will be shipped between european countries because of the sales tax? At the moment i have to pay 15 USD for shipping, yes. But no sales tax because some states in the US does not have a sales tax?
Games from Super Rare games are more expensive for me than from LRG because they have to add the sales tax from the UK.
are the germans more savvy with customs? never been hit with it in the UK and usually our postal service is pretty annoying for customs charges too
Shipping product is not that easy. As volume grows, it just takes longer to ship.
I did days ago and have not received a response. Is there a big queue or will it be sorted in the next couple of days? Mine is ticket #112025
You're thinking of play Asia. Vgp does have some sort of warehouse in Buffalo though.
There's a fairly big queue - we had a backlog from the holiday season that we have slowly conquered. Response times can be 3-5 days atm.
I had that hope when the Virtual Console started years back, but it didn't pan out too much. We have gotten a few, though.
I think these titles have enough differences to the boxes ( i.e. they are not indistinguishable from the OG release) and the fact that they are "limited" means that collectors might not care, hell they may try to profit more, double/triple up and then sell once LRG is OOO.
only Sega CD games or any retro console?
afaik over the years i think it was just various Square games, they're pretty easy to find out tho as newer prints have the usual silver backing now rather than the black one normal games had
Oh interesting. Didn't realize the backs were different.
Agreed. Really disappointing that there is no soundtrack and it’s Sega CD only with PC release later. Also they don’t have plans to also release the remakes despite including them in the original announcement. Disney probably sucks to work with.Just noticed the LE too. Super missed opportunity to have a soundtrack cd. Lucasfilm/arts barely ever released any, Loom is the only one I remember that got one in that era.
What I would give to have an MI soundtrack with pc speaker, adlib, mt-32 and vga-cd music collected
I disagree that Snatcher should get another print, anybody that wants to play the game can do so with ridiculous ease. There is no guilt in playing a pirated game that costs a months rent, with none of the money going to the dev. Konami doesn't give a flip about making a few thousand dollars selling a couple copies. If they really wanted money they'd release the game digitally, which I wouldn't mind. Releasing a new physical copy today would only be for the purpose of disrupting the collector market.
...huh? I never ever heard this as being a thing for rare games, nor would I ever use that advice. There is no gurantees that you would even get back what you paid as a "rental", and you still need to front the money in the first place.Also nevermind collectors, as I've been repeatedly telling people over the years that don't want to pirate it. It doesn't cost much to buy the game off eBay, play through it, then relist the game on eBay. All it'd cost to play the game like this is the eBay sales fees. Or even, it's free to play if you can manage to sell the game on Craigslist. Nuking the value would hurt a fair number of non-collectors who simply wanted to play the game.
