By signing this petition, you agree that the "Poker Night at the Inventory" print(pictured below) needs to be on the Store, and not just available at PAX.

  • As of right now, this is still a PAX Exclusive item, but that's not to say we haven't seen this thread.

    And to play devil's advocate, like many have mentioned in the thread, wouldn't you be upset if something you thought was exclusive became available to the masses? I know when I've gone to Comic-Cons in years past, bought an item I was explicitly told would be exclusive to the con and then a month later saw the same item on sale online, with the Comic-Con exclusive sticker smacked on it - yeah I was pretty upset.

    Nah, great things that I like should be shared. As long as I don't pay extra because it was "SUPER SECRET!! EXCEPT TO SEXY HANDSOME PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF" a month prior then it's all good

    The slip-case for TOMI DVD was supposed to be an exclusive for pre-orders but now available to everyone who splashes out for the deluxe edition, just to play devils advocate :p

  • I feel I understand both sides, but I wasn't at PAX so I personally would want one too.
    How about at least releasing it in full wallpaper sizes for my desktop?

  • People would still go to cons without also getting exclusive hideously rare items (that many of them then go home and ebay for great profit), so I am fully against con exclusives.

    I would guess that a vast majority of fans don't go to the cons, and even the ones that do can't make it to EVERY con, so it just makes it a lot harder if you're trying to collect cool merch/swag.

    Actually not really. About all I do is rub it in my friends face for 2 months then help them find copies on the 'net. Like I was upset one of my figurines was a limited edition because all my friends wanted it. And I want a Persona 3 PVC but they're hard to come by, especially for Main character and Fuuka.
    I hate unfair exclusives. Limited runs of something you know everyone's going to want (See Sam and Max comic collection) is just unfair. It's basically a "HA! You weren't fast enough to buy this, so Eff off."
    Pre-order bonuses just about everyone has a fair shot at aslong as they're not like "Oh hey, game comes out in an hour if you pre-ordered it you get this" type of crap. Hell even then you can just released it altered. Do you think I care that because I pre-ordered Skate 3 I got an "Exclusive" skate park that everyone else got to pay for? Pfft, no. You think I care that Digital Devil Saga is being reprinted (a rare SMT game) so everyone can enjoy it? No. Do I care that my CD I got for pre-ordering a game everyone can get by filling out a form? Eh, a bit because it delayed my getting my replacement CD, but still overall no.
    I find this type of exclusive greed to be pointless. What if everyone who bought Devil's Playhouse got the Sam and Max items? I'd be very happy! Then people would stop pestering me for my items, and my fiance who quit targetting me for wearing them, along with half the other team. Exclusives are nice, but never needed. I could understand getting them for free, and selling to everyone else. Or selling others altered versions (like I mentioned above), but just keeping it to a select few people who were able to go to a limited space con (which costs a lot to go to, and/or couldn't make due to work or school) is BS. It's even more so unfair to your European and Asian fans. Hell, even that crap pulled with Devil's Playhouse where we got a very limited time frame for the pre-order bonuses was crap.[If my memory recalls right] The fact that my BlazBlue stick is a limited edition also bugs me because they marked the price up (I got it for $60 though) and everytime I bring it to school everyone tries to use it no matter what because it's a LE. Which really annoys me because people will try to use it with Panda Express or Chik-Fi-la in their laps and BBQ sauce all over their hands.

  • I never feel THAT special when I have something that others don't. As much as I enjoy my collection of TF2 hats and promotional items, I feel like I would be so far behind if I started TF2 now than I did 3 years ago. Some of those things would be impossible to get. At least this is the case for in-game exclusives. I don't care for the commercials that advertise, "pre-order now and get the exclusive in-game item!" At least in poker night, people will have a chance to get the Lugermorph again. Then again, Pre-orders atleast gives everyone a chance to get the items. (lousy gentlemann's service medal...)

    That said I do like the Telltale preorders: free episodes, discounts, message board, DVD slip case, and sometimes TF2 items.

    Not really. Although admittedly as a european, we rarely get exclusive limited edition stuff thrown our way when it comes to video games. However when we do, I won't go bragging to other people who can't get it. Maybe that's because I know how it feels not to be able to get something due to exclusivity, or even them just not bothering bringing it over.

    As much as I would love to visit comic con, PAX and many other big conventions which are located in America. Not all of us can afford paying £1000 for the trip.

  • considering it got listed as "exclusive", its exclusive. and wont happen. sorry, but dont get your hopes up. tho i'd love to get one :(
