Koei Tecmo has delivered the first dark horse hit of the year. We expected Nioh‘s sales figures to be solid thanks to an excellent marketing campaign that placed it in the same category as Dark Souls, but we didn’t expect so many gamers to actually bite.
Neither did Koei Tecmo, apparently, as it didn’t ship out enough physical copies. The game is selling out across the net, and you’ll have to move quickly if you want to secure a physical edition from the first wave.
Reports are coming in that Amazon has totally sold out, and it won’t be able to ship until the next 1 – 2 months. GAME, the UK’s largest video game retailer, cleared out its stock in certain areas of the country. Australians are reportedly not having that much luck, either.
Wow, good for you Koei Tecmo. You have a hit on your hands! Way to go!
Is it mean to find these shortages interesting?
When it comes to hardware, nothing is more annoying than not being able to secure your product. Finding a Switch and an NES Classic Edition was about the most infuriating process I’ve gone through in recent memory.
However, now that software has gone digital and is essentially available in infinite numbers, I’m finding it interesting to see a video game no longer in stock. I haven’t seen this in a while.
I’ve embraced digital video games, although that might change when I move back to the states, but the thought of me not getting a game when it launches hasn’t been a concern of mine for many many years.
