Charging over $200 (with shipping included) for 6 LPs, with no information on artwork, tracklist (for the 4 LP version), and a release date 5 months away at the earliest. What a despicable company. Shame on Atlus USA for allowing them to scalp Persona fans like this.

Persona fans should be used to Atlus milking them by now.

Hahaha unfortunately you're right in the money. Still, as a vinyl collector I hate companies like Iam8bit.

Everyone hates Iam8bit like companies (limited run games, Sideshow, etc...). They charge absurd amount for average quality product. Horizon Zero Dawn 4LP = 60€ from a "real" music company, Persona 5 4LP = 125€ from Iam8bit... Most of these "limited" editions just end on Ebay btw for 2-5x the initial price

In the end they exist because some "fans" buy their stuff and have too much money so just waste it. For example i sold Star Wars posters lately for 150€ each, the one you got in your local theater for free... Easy to understand why these companies exist and have such high prices. Too bad in the end for some real fans.

Yes, I also have a love-hate relationship with them. Some of their releases really do have relevance like all the RARE stuff. Just for that you can't avoid them. But their shipping policy really sucks. Waiting for ages to get your records. And this whole pre-order model is something I would like to not support.
