So, taking into account the feedback from this & Wonder Boy's releases, LRG is trying a new tactic for this week's release of Y's Origins. The Limited Edition will release as usual, 3000 units per system (PS4 & Vita.) The standard Edition will be handled as a preorder, all orders placed within 24 hours of the game going live will be honored.
I think it's a good balance, keeping to their standard of truly limited releases while allowing for people who just want a copy to play to easily get one. LRG has also said via twitter this is a data-gathering released for them as well, to see if larger print runs are truly justified or not. I'll be curious to know just how many more (if any) they sell past a normal print run. I'm still debating on if I want to get up early and try for an LE to pass along to someone who misses it. I don't want it- I'm hoping to grab the PAX exclusive cover next weekend.
