    I don't think the Angry Video Game Nerd has ever reviewed an Eroge, though someone could email him a copy of this one and see if he responds to it...

    And wow I just typed Eroge into Google to check spelling, and it only gets 500,000 results. An entire genre of video game only gets 500,000.

    I had thought Eroge to be slightly more popular. When you add in the number of people who just get the Torrent instead of buy the actual game, I wonder how they are making any money at all?

    "stores involved with the sale of this unfortunate game have followed suit, significantly cutting back prices, but not going so far as to actually stop selling the text-based eroge…"

    This made me LOL. Even after reading your Chinese execution article.

    "Welcome to Japan! Return policy not in effect."

    For anyone to actually buy the game a second time, instead of torrenting it is beyond me.

    BTW, Artefact, is the Dalai Lama supposed to be there?

    Ummmm... it's not appendix... I think they are saying "append disc"... (アッペンド ディスク)... so they will follow up with an extra disc to append for "part of the data and part of the program"?

    Good point, I didn't notice that, but as 'append disc' isn't really English it shouldn't matter much I think.

    Seriously, no CGs? They must be trying really hard to troll customers.

    Oh the humanity!

    Would probably be a smart move to buy it at the super-discounted price and then just wait the week or two until you get the fixed disc, saved a few yen in the process...

    Is it not possible to return defective merchandise for a full refund in Japan?

    It seems the customers should be able to return a defective product to the store they bought it from instead of selling it to a used game store for a pittance. And retailers would be able to return defective merchandise to the distributor.

    I know a lot of Japanese stores have no refund policies posted, but I'd think defective merchandise would be an exception...

    Returning defective *software* for a full refund? In an age where basically no Windows game, Ero or otherwise, ships bug-free? I don't see it.

    Business plan:
    1. Sell Eroge without CG for normal price, until customers catch up.
    2. Generate insane amounts of discussion by this.
    3. Secretly buy back your "used" games for 100 Yen or so apiece.
    4. Release a supplemental CD or Web supplement containing the - suitably awesome - CG you withheld so far.
    5. Resell the games you secretly rebought for normal prices, profiting from the PR resulting from the whole thing.
    6. Swim in money!

    Bandai-Namco has been doing that since 2007.

    Who would have thought so that the erogame developers would copy that busines model too?
