I'm happy that anyone here got them. My point was when 50 were available of a title (here in the US), and you can see that 50 of that title have sold on Ebay (US site - but some of those sales are from foreign countries) -
I'm not saying literally every US onsale item went to a reseller first, of course, but technically the same amount of product for Route One (50) officially available to US buyers - DID get resold on the US ebay site so far for 3+ times the initial price. Obviously I can't tell you the full numbers of what percentage of these 4 releases around the world went to resellers, but from what I can gather - it seems it may be very high, which is a shame.
I just would think that fact would be a reason to re-think such limited release numbers/ demand vs availability type things.
dont get me wrong - "first world problems" for sure and It's great you were able to get what you did
