I think it’s great that publishers of niche titles open their own online stores. Why? Because when you buy games directly from them, a greater portion of the profit goes to the publisher itself instead of third-party stores like GameStop or WalMart. That’s why it’s awesome that XSEED has just opened up their official store, where you can purchase many of their great, niche titles. A favorite of mine, of course, is Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, which is possibly my favorite PSP JRPG of all time.
If you’re an uber-fan and own all their games, the store does contain other items like t-shirts, soundtrack CDs, cloth maps and other odds and ends for you to spend your cash on, all in support of a localization studio that’s doing great work. So, have at it!
