Are redditors finally waking up?

When will preordering finally die?

Nope. People on this very board were hyped for MGSV and probably preordered. Currently they are hyped for Persona 5 and will probably preorder that too although Japanese games are little more grey area in this regard because they might actually run out of copies depending where you live, so securing an order may not be unwise.


Pick one

I want them to stop flinging money at shitty devs so I can have my good vidya back


Pre-ordering was only created to avoid people not being able to get their hands on a copy of a PHYSICAL GAME during the lunch day. It's fucking stupid and was designed for those faggots who wanted to feel relevant because they too wanted the "hot new thing".

It really depends on the game or company in question. For example, I'd say there's much less reason to preorder something that's bound to be easy to find later (popular series like Final Fantasy), and in Atlus' case while they'd traditionally done small initial print runs, they've seemed prone to reprints for SMT and Persona, at least with the PS2 entries (not sure how exactly they've handled prints for stuff like Persona 4 Golden or SMT: Strange Journey, whether those saw the reprint treatment). Honestly, I wouldn't be too worried that something like Persona 5 would become really rare; Persona being a flagship of Atlus, it'll likely get a reprint even if the initial run is small.

But you're right about the more niche stuff having more reason to do so for, especially when a game is confirmed to only be getting a limited print run in the first place (though with the VC and PSN, that's less of an issue than in the past, at least for people that don't care one way or another about what format they get a game in). Also the plus that, localization quality aside (which admittedly is an issue to be worried about; part of why I'm a bit leery of Exist Archive, as Aksys is hit or miss), the western audience doesn't have to play guinea pig as to whether a game is any good or not when first released, compared to western made games, and we can hear what the Japanese audience and importers thought of it before it comes out here (if it even comes out here). Though that's mainly a perk for games that get staggered releases as opposed to being intentional worldwide releases from the start.

I remember back in the day on half/vr/, some user there was lamenting never being able to play a PS2 game called Dual Hearts (was a bit surprising to have seen brought up since it wasn't /vr/ material), as pretty much no one bothered to preorder it where he lived, so they got next to no (or outright no) copies out there.

It is like desalinating a cup of sea water - the ocean is hardly less salty for your efforts. Here the consumerbase is hardly any less gullible because a handful of people have wisened up. You can deny them your money but there's plenty of other suckers ready and happy to hand over theirs. And I expect there always will be.

No. Even people who know full well about NMS will still defend preordering.

You're a normalfag, user, nobody on this board is a special snowflake.

Some will, but a large portion of normalfags have been shaken by this. See:

Reddit always has been and always will be pure garbage, this is simply one of the rare times they AREN'T retarded

What's Reddit?

I can tell.

Holla Forums is fucking cancer and if you come here for anything but shitposting you are part of it.


No seriously what's Reddit?

You miss the point of why Reddit is shit. It's actually not the userbase. Reddit is shit, first and foremost, due to the actual site structure, which unintentionally furthers human social flaws. Furthermore, it's too large to be populated solely by people who have conscious philosophies about what websites they use, like here. A lot of normalfags are just there because it's what's popular and they don't know any better.

At last, I truly see.

Elliot Rodger waited. The lights above him blinked and sparked out of the air. There were whores in the dorm. He didn't see them, but had expected them now for years. His warnings to youtub were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway.
Elliot was a virgin for twenty two years. When he was young he watched the sluts and he said to dad "I want to be on the sluts daddy."
Dad said "No! You will BE REJECT BY WHORES"
There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got oldered he stopped. But now on the campus of the USCB he knew there were whores.
"This is /r9k/" the radio crackered. "You must fight the whores!"
So Elliot gotted his glock and blew up the wall.
"WHAT A CREEP" said the whores "I literally cant even right now" said the slut and she posted on tumblr. Elliot glocked at her and tried to blew her up. But then the ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
"No! I must kill the whores" he shouted
The radio said "No, Elliot. You are the whores"
And then Elliot was a girl.


Hi, mr Smith, how is ms Smith and the kids doing? I heard about your promotion, your really worked for it. Congratulation.



This guy gets it.


Don't get me wrong. Idiots, attention whores, those who can't handle disagreement, manipulators, and otherwise shit people are attracted to Reddit, but it's because its shitty structure lets them take advantage of the flaws, and this in turn fosters a shitty userbase, but that's still ultimately a symptom of the structure.

Absolutely beautiful.

Hi reddit

If they were "awake" they wouldn't be using reddit.

'People' on this very board also pre-ordered Mankind Divided…



hi reddit
