Physical copies of games are better than digital period! Physical games come packaged with beautiful artwork that you can place on the shelf and proudly reflect upon from time to time. Plus there’s no fear of DRM or any other changes brought on by an uncertain digital- only future.
Limited Run Games understand this and their team are all game collectors themselves. Limited Run focus on bringing games that were previously only available in a digital format to a physical medium. They publish physical copies on indie games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita with a full-colour instruction manual. They’re called Limited Run for a reason. Once a game sells out, it will never be available from them again. Limited Run designs their products as part of a collection. Each game is numbered and easily identified by a stamp on the back cover.
Previously released titles include Oddworld: New & Tasty, XeoDrifter, Breach & clear and Octodad: Dadliest Catch. Rainbow Moon, Volume and Cosmic Star Heroine are all coming soon. The next release will be Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype for PlayStation Vita, that will go live on July 29. 3200 copies will be available.
