Gaming merchandise (why do we never get the good stuff?) August 19, 2008

Posted by Chris in Console, Merchandise.

Two pieces of gaming-related merchandise which caught my eye today. The first (pictured above) is a limited edition version of PSP strategy role-player Yggrda Union – a sort of Fire Emblem/Advance Wars on E-numbers which appeared on the GBA a while back and was busy, complex but really quite excellent. It’s available only from US store GameStop, and is reserved for those preordering the game. The soundtrack on the original game was really quite good, so that’s a neat little freebie for American gamers.

Meanwhile, Japan continues to get the best deal when it comes to gaming tat, with this set of RockMan/MegaMan magnets released to commemorate the helmeted one’s 20th Anniversary. Nice.

The odd ‘limited’ edition tin (which is usually more plentiful than vanilla boxed copies for most games) aside, why do we never get any quality gaming merchandise in the UK? I think we should be told.
