Quoted from Vespula:
How can that be if I ordered from JJP on December 30th and they're telling me fall. I think based on that if you're ordering today it'll be next year. But I don't know their capacity to crank these out if they're 100 percent focused on LE production either.
From what I understand (and this is just my thought process, no inside information), the games are built and each distributor (including jjp themselves) gets a percentage of that build according to the percentage of games they ordered. So, if 100 games are built a week (just a made up number, no actual knowledge of production schedule) and distributor x ordered 6% of the total games, then they would get 6% of that build. If you ordered from jjp or one of the larger distributors and think you're game is going to come any sooner then that would shock me. Even if jjp direct is getting 40% of each allotment, they may have sold 750+ games on day one (again, pure speculation). At that rate (40%) it would still take 20 "weeks" to fulfill that day one order.
Since we dont know the production schedule or individual percentage of games given per week, this is all just speculation. Some have speculated 2500+ games sold already. Depending on production numbers (which HEAVILY depends on vendors being able to get parts, which is very tough right now) it literally could be months for current orders to be filled.
Again, just to remind everyone who thinks I have any inside information on this matter, I DO NOT. I am simply speculating from what i have seen with production and my own sales numbers thus far.
That being said, this is a simply amazing game and worth the wait. We are so proud of what eric and the entire jjp team have done with this game.
For those following along, we do have some games left in our allotment that can be secured. The longer you wait the longer the wait will be. Get in now, pay your deposit and sit back and enjoy. Spring is here, summer will be here soon. Before you know it your game will be on the line and getting ready for you to enjoy.
