Border Down Reprint 01/17/2008 - SOLD OUT! -

Post by Christuserloeser » Wed Jan 16, 2008 3:13 pm

As you might know, G.Rev's excellent horizontal shmup Border Down is getting a reprint sheduled for 17th of January 2008. - Now it seems that the entire stock is already sold out via preorder:

Alas, it was completely presold. Perhaps the pressings were more scarce than I'd have thought. My friend went to Akiba around 3-5PM on the 10th of January so it wasn't really all that late.

Back to Ebay, huh? BTW the last few kanji on the sign below reads 'Orders have been finalized' or something.

Well, that tells you something about continued Dreamcast demand. While I feel bad for people who couldn't get a copy (myself included) this is actually good news in the long run.

We don't know the size of the reprint. It could be about 200 units for all we know.

Good point, but even if it is small. It still looks good that it sold out so quickly.

90% of the people who bought are going to re-sale it on ebay.

Apparently National Console Support has got Border Down or atleast access to the reprints of Border Down as of the past few days, but they are saying it is going to "hurt." If anybody is interested, they should definitely contact them or just drop $100+ over at ebay.
