The “Mega Man: The Best Of Mega-Man 1-10” picture disc is now up for sale online

Spacelab9’s delayed and long-awaited Mega Man picture disc can now be purchased through Hot Topic’s website and stores.

If you don’t like picture discs, Hot Topic, or both then you’re in luck as Spacelab9 has promised to release a standard vinyl version on their own site on a later undisclosed date.

Update: While I was writing this the release sold out. It might still be available in-store, though.

Update 2: In a comment on a reddit-post, Spacelab9 said that they hope to be able to ship the standard vinyl versions in late September/early October.

The Last Of Us vinyl OST is coming this Wednesday (July 22nd)!

Mondo have just announced in their newsletter that the release date for the upcoming The Last Of Us vinyl soundtrack by Gustavo Santaolalla will be on July 22nd.

Furthermore we got some extra info on the set. It will be a 4LP slipcase on good ol’ black vinyl – no color options. Artwork is done by Olly Moss and Jay Shaw (see pictures below) and the soundtrack will include music from the “Left Behind” DLC. As rumored the price have also been confirmed to be $75.

No word on any limitations, so I’m gonna guess that there will be plenty of these bad boys.
