Because from Twilight Time to Synapse's Demons
to Shout!'s Nightbreed
LE, this shows a disturbing trend of releases with unusually high price tags, that are also promoted as limited, meaning fans have no choice but to pay up now if they want a title, or miss out altogether. It also encourages scalpers to buy up stock just to re-sell at inflated prices on the secondary market. No one complains about the high price tag on Criterion titles, because we know the quality is there, and they don't pull that "Only 3,000 made! Buy now or miss out!" bullshit. But we're being forced to pony up for Nightbreed
now, at double a Criterion price, w/o knowing what kind of quality to expect. Otherwise, I don't mind the high prices on Shout!'s Scream Factory SEs, because they tend to be good quality and packed with extras. And they're not limited. I detest Twilight Time, who charge the same (or more) as Scream, but limited and w/o extras. I've heard the quality on Demons
is great, and I appreciate it, but with so much stuff coming out, and money being tight, I'd appreciate being able to wait a year or two to pick it up, or get it on sale somewhere, but "NO, IT'S LIMITED! ONLY 100 LEFT! ORDER NOW!!1"
