    this is good news :)
    however say goodbye to those low print games that are worth a few bob once it gets retro AKA Rare & Expensive "Hidden Gems" I hate that term.

    I swear Atlas has developed at least 3/4 Sought after and expensive retro games for every console.

    Please mate, they arent so popular that everyone knows about them... I never heard about them before I got my 3ds, and even then I dont play any of their games... and if I ask someone whos not a nintendo fan- he probably doesnt know who they are either

    I have never met anybody with issues with that term before. Hardcore, casual, AAA... all borderline non words but hidden gems seems to be fairly universally understood, and as far as I am aware not yet too misused, as being games* which maybe did not get the best reviews, most press or sales but in retrospect were actually quite good.
    The worst I have met is when something has been popular in Europe for years but not in North America (which of course is the entire world for those in it), though even then it is not so bad as it still means you are probably going to be in for a search if you don't want to play the import game.

    *the term seems to be far older as well if https://www.google.co.uk/search?q="...IPFAKHfjfCH4QpwUIHg&biw=1760&bih=813&dpr=1.09 is anything to go by.

    Deep Silver appears to have always tried their best but they also can't do the impossible without permission.
