Ill just drop this here

I'm not surprised at all, yet I can't help but get a little angry every time I see s*** like this going on.

hopefully I can get an order in. I'm currently at work and will try after I get off in 5 hours wish me luck!

And I know this angers me too, which is why I asked if they had anything in place to dissuade scalpers. I will keep an eye on ebay to see if they are taken down.

It can't have been available for too long. A few hours maybe? I hadn't seen any official times for when it was supposed go up, so I'm not 100% sure.

*sigh* It was inevitable, but that sure was quick for a scalper to post that even when the game was still in stock. It won't sell at that price. It's a collectible game sure, but not that high. Sheesh.

It was live for about 2 hours (11:30am EST-1:30pm EST) which I consider pretty good for only 1500 copies.

sorry for double post.

EDIT:

I swear it was 1000 yesterday now it is 1980 copies.. Im wondering if that means the discs aren't physically produced yet.

man, I was going to get a copy but by the time I got on they where sold out. I personally hate these low limited items on new games.
It just makes resellers go nuts. sigh. 4

Also Limited Run's needs to put a Limit of 1 per mailing address, your just going to get scalpers buying as many as they can and only a few getting to the gamer's. I am not paying a scalper $400 for this game.  >:(

I for one will always support Indy developers that go the extra mileage to give me a physical copy, rare or not, limited or not. Big AAA should be ashamed, I'm thinking of you Halo with your big LE collector box and a vulgar digital code. I know they corrected it but still, these should not happen yet. I'm aware that digital is the future, but I don't want to accept it YET.

Those that missed snagging a copy earlier, you may have another chance. According to the Limited Run Games Twitter https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/with_replies
"The freed up stock from excess orders will go live at the same time, probably going to be 200 - 300." The time they referred to in another tweet was "Most likely Monday evening, once we've gone through all of our orders"
