The link led to a series of videos...was there one in particular you had in mind? And do you by chance happen to know if DBCS will work with it?

Basically pick the videos of games that you are interested in. Even on older games the Pro with Boost Mode delivers either higher or more stable (30 of 60 fps depending on the game) frame rates and possibly improved texture loading times with the result of the image looking "sharper" - though if a game has poor frame pacing like Bloodbourne or Dark Souls III the Pro doesn't alleviate that. Even side scrollers like Mighty No. 9 and Shantae Half Genie Hero can benefit by getting a more stable 60 fps frame rate on the Pro.

Some of the more recent games sometimes bump up the resolution to "mostly 1080p", up from the base resolution of 720p on top of an improved/more stable frame rate - the best example seems to be Nioh.

I'm running the Japanese physical PS4 Dariusburst without issue on the Pro - though I don't know if it actually "benefits" from it - but then again I wouldn't have expected Shantae Half Genie Hero to run better on a Pro either.

Thank you. That helps clear it up a bit.

Am I missing something? I've already received my copy released on March 30. Is this somehow different?

The North American PSN version on Disc - so full English localization and can only use North American PSN DLC.

The one you have has original Japanese text and can only use Japan PSN DLC.

Oh, suck. I didn't know there was a difference. Looks like I spent $60 needlessly.

The LRG release was only announced Feb 1. The Japanese release became available for preorder Jan 2. That’s my excuse.

So, question: if I preorder the NA version now, being that shmups often get expensive in the future, would I be ridiculous in thinking of just holding on to the Japanese one I just got and sell it later?

There is no pre-order for Dariusburst over LRG. They'll go on sale at 10am & 6pm and be sold out in like in 3 minutes or less (typically the 6pm batch sells a little slower - depends on how much of a "bloodbath" it is). I explained the situation here.

And it's the LRG one that will be fetching the higher prices - not because it's Dariusburst but because it's an LRG release - it's just a question of how much higher. PS4/PS Vita Oddworld Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty which originally sold for $29.99 is one of the worst offenders.

Anybody noticed if the game has adaptative difficulty? I did notice that some bosses are sometimes weaker or their attacks easier on CS mode but Im not sure if on AC mode the difficulty changes depending on how well you are doing.

Did LRG confirm that the actual box of the LE will have english on the back ? When they announced it (and said it will have a LRG sticker on it) I was under the impression that they were just using the japanese boxsets.

Don't know about the back but the front of the box is missing the Japanese across the DARIUSBURST CS.

So the box is different from the Japanese one.

Compare to

Though there could be the possibility of a second print run of the Japanese box with the writing removed (it doesn't look that different) - that wouldn't surprise me.

First 1000 collector's editions were already gone by 10:01am - the first 1400 standard editions were down to 1% by 10:06am - which didn't last too long into that minute. Final 1000/1400 @ 6:00pm.

I was concerned that most Collector's edition purchases would also snap up a standard edition - but that didn't seem to happen this time around. But I guess they can always swoop in on the second batch to pick up a standard copy and file a ticket to have their shipping combined/refunded.

The original 2017-Feb-12 Degica tweet mentioned an "art book" for the "special" edition - but apparently that didn't make it into the collector's edition. Either that was scrapped due to cost - or it was held back in case they decide to do a Vita run (which I would judge to be far more risky than the PS4 one).

I managed to get a limited edition, feeling pretty lucky. Thought it would sell out quick but I didn't expect it to be a couple mins.

Typical Ltd Run Games shitshow.

Put one in cart in the first second, card payment gateway down, Amazon payment just sat there failing to load. By the time it did they were all gone.

I kind of want this, but I get the feeling that it'll be more trouble than it's worth getting an account setup with card info and attempting to make a purchase over LTE in the few minutes allowed while riding a bus through deadzones in the mountains.

Seems using paypal and having an open, active paypal session in another browser tab (refresh so PP doesn't disconnect) can be helpful.

PS4 Collectors Edition: Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours Original Arrange Album 2 (2017) (identical to Japanese limited edition)
vs
PS Vita Collectors Edition: Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours Original Arrange Album (2016)
vs
Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours Original Sountrack (2016)

LRG special comes with red (P1) and blue (P2) Silver Hawk figures while the Japanese one comes with blue (P2), green (P3), and orange (P4) - IIRC Chara-Ani direct pre-orders also got the red (P1) one.

I was able to get a Limited Edition from LRG. I used PayPal so I wouldn't have to spend time typing in a credit card number, and I still barely made it. When I returned to the LRG site a few seconds after purchase, the LE was already sold out.

Apparently, Degica suggested to LRG that 3,000 copies was a good amount. I'm glad LRG had enough sense to ignore that and produce 4,800 copies, but it seems they still under-produced.

LRG's shmup releases sell out faster than the others. Astebreed and Soldner X-2 also disappeared really fast. Hopefully they'll consider this and produce larger numbers of any shmups in the future.

I'm still hoping LRG will do Battle Garegga and Dangun Feveron at some point.

I do feel like Limited Run Games would be overall better if they did the same thing with all their releases that they did for the Skullgirls PS4 physical release, which was take preorders for a certain period of time and then request enough copies to fill the preorder requests. Still keeps the idea of "Limited Run" but doesn't screw over people who don't get on their site in the 2-5 minutes it takes for stuff to sell out.

^ Surely the best system would be a up front payment preorder with no cancellation option. Keep the preorder up for a month and then print as many as are sold.

They typically produce a "round" number - like 5000 and hold back stock for costumer service cases and trade shows.
Black Friday 2016 they dumped some "overstock" - if they only had a few copies they went for "auction" and the other stuff could be had for regular price - that's how I got Shadow Complex Remastered.

CORRECTION
Quote:
30% of the total inventory of each game has not been sold yet. Second batch is always easier than the first. No need to worry yet.

Final 600/840 @ 6:00pm.

Edit: Collectors was "Sold Out" @ 6:07pm, Standard @ 6:11pm

I seem to recall them saying that this system gave them a sizeable amount of problems and that they wouldn't be doing it again; I forget exactly what the issues were, but IIRC the original expected ship date was supposed to be back in January, and as of now I and others who preordered are still waiting.

huh, interesting, I didnt realize people still hadnt received their copies yet

strange that something like that could cause so many issues, it seems rather simple on the surface, but I guess suppliers etc

::sigh:: Wasn't able to purchase either one. Just couldn't get to it at the right time. And I *honestly* didn't care about the Collector's Edition...I just wanted to play the thing in English!

I feel you bro. I was working all day and when I got home . it was too late. Its all good . No biggie. Just curious, do we need a English shoot em up? Its not like its an RPG. Is it game breaking in any way? Afterall , I have quite a few shmup imports.....

Sorry to hear that you couldn't snag one. I wouldn't be at all surprised now that the LRG event is over that it's PSN NA's turn for a 70% off Dariusburst CS sale similar to the PSN EU sale last February - that route would be a lot cheaper and you wouldn't even have to put the disk in the console.
