    Dear Capcom,

    Please make a package which looks like this

    http://www.shacknews.com/laryn.x?story=54764

    and includes the game on the disc. Take preorders. Only make as many as are preordered. Charge $50. You will make a killing off of people like me and whomever posts in this thread.

    You don't have to do this before next week, any time before the end of 2008 will do. Actually, if you could make it arrive in my mailbox on December 24th wrapped up like my parents did with Mega Man 2 so that I can unwrap it the following morning and play it while wearing pajamas, I'd pay an extra $15-$20.

    That is all.

      Apparently there will be a very limited release of that package. We'll post more when we know more.

        Yeah, I was just hoping it wouldn't be so limited that I'd miss out...

      I'd easily pay 100 bucks or more for such a thing...then again I did just pay 44 bucks for a new in box plastic sealed SNES controller manufactured in 1991 that I won't be able to bring myself to open (I have two that I actually use).
