The company "Limited Run Games" popped up recently and has promised to produce physical copies of games (so far for the PS Vita and PS4 and soon Switch) that were previously available only in a digital format. As the company's name suggests, these games will be produced in limited quantities which will depend on the game and will not be reprinted after they sell out.

From what I've seen and read so far, the games will be individually numbered from 1 up to however many were printed. They don't appear to have ESRB ratings, and I'm not certain if they have bar codes or item numbers like the PS4 and Vita physical versions of Retro City Rampage DX.

Interesting idea! For now they only have the two games from their own studio but if they manage to hook japanese games western publisher on this, it may  produce nice collectibles!

Thanks for posting this! ;D I'll certainly try to buy Breach and Clear tomorrow.
Since they don't have ESRB on the front, would it be safe to consider these unofficial releases or homebrews?

I think that these should be considered official despite the lack of ERSB ratings.

All of our releases are part of the official library, they're manufactured by Sony and have official product numbers. Breach & Clear is PCSE-00746. We don't have ESRB ratings because they are voluntary, and super expensive. Retailers require them - we ship direct to customers so we don't need ratings. I don't think a mother will accidentally buy her child an 'M' rated game through our site. :)

We have actual UPC codes on the back of the box. I believe we've got a picture posted to our Twitter and Facebook.

Let me know if you guys have any questions about the release or what we're doing with Limited Run. I'm happy to answer! I know some folks have been skeptical that we're trying to prey on collectors in some malicious manner. We're not, I've been a collector since I was a kid and own around 1,000 games. We're doing this because we love game collecting, it's as simple as that.

While I don't have any interest in the games currently being offered, this is certainly something I'm interested in. Heck, I just ordered 2 imports today of games that won't be getting US physical releases, so I'm more than willing to go out of my way to secure a physical release of a game I'm interested in.

Here's hoping the offerings branch out more!
"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed
if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I
became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the
desire to be very grown up.” ― C.S. Lewis

We actually created the account a few weeks ago, haha. Just wanted to be prepared to answer questions anywhere they may arise.

LimitedRunGames what is your plan if you ever come across a situation where your entire offering gets bought in a matter of minutes? like a vast under determination of game popularity?
Are there any precautions in place for stopping large bulk buys? you know scalpers (people who buy to sell at markup on places like e-bay) after all you say you are a collector and as a fellow collector I despise scalpers.
what games are you currently pursuing? do you have a particular game type of game you are targeting?
Browsing around your store there is a non-implemented subscription buy, what is this used for? how much will it cost? what's the timeframe on investment?
Do you ever plan on having games in a non-limited aspect? like you will only sell game x for 1 year instead of 1000 copies of game x?

If I think of anymore questions I will let you know

Edit:

And lol I wouldn't consider july to be a few weeks ago  ;)

Did not know that ratings were voluntary, shows my ignorance!  :o  Thanks for the response! So is it just item numbers or UPC codes that are required to be part of the official library? I'm genuinely curious what the process for getting a game into the official physical library is.
