DOOM 64 Remaster Getting Physical Release for PS4 and Switch From Limited Run Games

Recommended Posts

Limited Run is one of the greater efforts to come out of this console generation. I really love the philosophy behind it.

It sounds cool, but 55 bucks! The game you can download for 5 dollars, the posters you could print yourself for free, or at a place for like 10 cents. The booklet costs nothing, and the cartridge is cool, but is probably worth 3 dollars. I understand it if there was a statue of the Mother Demon, or extra content for the game, but it is just that. I already have the game on PS4, so I think I won't buy this. Maybe one day I'll order the cartridge on eBay, but that's it.

Strongly considering getting it for my Switch, since it's literally the only legal way I could own a copy (since my Switch is jailbroken, so no eShop for me.)

If you truly think printing posters, printing a booklet and crafting a cartridge + the game is 5 bucks + 10 cents + nothing + probably worth 3 dollars then you have to reevaluate this point of view first and formost.

What do you think the actual price of a new console is? Hint, its not 500 dollars.

Oooh, book of Dev interviews, you say? Yeah, sure, I could use a fourth copy of D64!

Almost as if physical distribution is expensive or something and perhaps isn't only cost of materials. 

Also producing Switch carts costs far more than you seem to think it is.

That's not my point. I'm saying that instead of paying almost 60 bucks for a game and a few collectables, you could just download the game for 50 dollars less. The disc would obviously cost a bit to produce, but I'm saying I would rather spend 5 dollars instead of 50 for something very similar.

These releases from Limited Run are intended more for the collectors crowd. They're not supposed to be an ideal way of just acquiring a copy of a game.

 

They're called Limited Run for crying out loud!

Yeah, and it's good for the people that want official artwork artwork, metal case, physical copy to play whatever whenever, and a nice Metal 64 Carttrige, it's better that pay 200$ on Ebay for a box of the game on N64 with the official manual and cartrige.

And it's limited so you need to be sure if you really need it, or just enjoy the digital release.

It's part of the juice, mate. Physical copies at this point are becoming less and less common. Collectors edition's are just something out of this world if you like to collect things and enjoy stuff from your favorite game. Limited Run Games does an amazing job at creating special editions, I would kill for one of their editions. This is another example of the great quality they offer, the collectors edition for the C&C remasterd, pure gold:

Believe me, a collectors edition for 60$? Almost feels like stealing.

I looked through the Twitter feed, and I'm not seeing any mention of how much the regular edition will cost.  Has this been announced anywhere?

Also, @Edward850, does a retail release mean DOOM 64's getting another update? :)

Do you know how BoM works, or the actual price of something?

 

Because every aspect of the package you mentioned costs far more than you seem to think it costs.

Yee. I'm not a collector, so I didn't really understand. Thanks for making things clearer @chemo and @Endless

Doesn't the name Limited Run kind of give it away though?

My wallet is ready to go! I always wondered if this was going to happen. Glad to see it coming with so much cool stuff. :)

Congrats to the Night Dive team! 

I don't know if they're in the loop at all. The promotional pictures only shows the Bethesda, id, and Limited Run logos.

I am not 100% sure either, but I first heard of it from Kaiser and I bet they are getting some cut from it.

You'd hope so, maybe the logos on the back.

I looked at the back of my screen but there's just an Asus logo on there. :p

Oh my god. How do people not understand what my comment was about? I was saying that the package is definitely worth 55 dollars. I'm not buying it because I already have the game, and there aren't enough collectables in there to intrigue me. I'm not saying that the package should be 10 dollars, which I thought was pretty obvious from my first comment.

I already have it on Steam so I probably won't be picking this up but if I decide I want it on Switch this is definitely the version I'd get. I feel like the only person my age that gives a shit about physical media so seeing the popularity of Limited Run makes me happy because they do real good shit.

None of your two posts actually says that, though.

Actually, that is more what you were saying. See the linked two posts.

Your general gist i get however. Don't worry.
