I also was one of the "lucky" ones that got the loose metal shield thingy...

I’m pretty torn on this...

I love using my OG Mega Drive, I love beat em ups, in particular SoR2, and I truly believe that we should support projects like this so that there will be more like it...

Thing is, £130 is a lot of money despite the ‘collector’ route they’ve gone down. I’ve only recently learnt of the game, so I’m not ‘invested’ like those who’ve spent years following development, and I really don’t think I can justify the spend.

How are people finding the actual gameplay?

Yeah they’ve doubled the price to recoup losses.

Too much for me though. It was interesting at around £50-£60 or whatever it was at first.

Was it ever at £60!!

I’d snap it up for that, but to more than double the price is crazy...

I’m no economics bod, but surely costs more in lost sales than it makes in increased profit? Right??

It's $129, that's hardly a lot for brand new game on bespoke hardware.

Granted, I hadn’t noticed the $129 tier, I thought $169 was the low, and I also hadn’t done the currency conversion... but £95 is still a big whack.

I’m not saying it’s outrageous money, and I totally accept with projects like this that the money isn’t the point... but it is still a factor...

Admittedly, now I’ve realised it’s sub £100 I’m closer to pulling the trigger.

If you truly believe we should support projects like these then you either haven't followed the last 8 or so years of this project or you have a different idea of what deserves support and what does not :lol:

To be fair, my comment did say that I hadn’t been following development so wasn’t as ‘invested’ as many, and I’ve already acknowledged that I was wrong on both the base price and the fact I hadn’t considered the exchange rate difference too...

I’m sure it was, back a few years ago. Maybe after the 10% discount.

Yep, that's in the parish. I just checked my emails and when I bought it it was $80.10 which at the time worked out to be £66.89

The investor editions were $50 and the limited editions were $40 for investors. Granted we went through nearly 9 years of nonsense for that, but we got them cheap. Not like I would ever back anything like this again now though.

Was that collectors edition? Mine was 62.10 usd (???) for standard edition, after exchanging some “gems” i paid 60,10 usd
Their website is weird as hell, i have a preorder which has status "refunded", which i can check out for shipping with payment 0,00 usd.

How much did you have to pay at the time to get the full whack including that stick?

That was for the 'Limited' version.

All my consoles are packed away in storage currently and will most likely be for a couple of months at least :problem:
