DVDs going out of print this year

DVDEvery dog has its day, and so does every medium. (Seriously… how many 8-tracks have you played lately?)

In response to a gradually shrinking number of orders for physical DVD product, we’ve made the decision to allow several of our DVD titles to gracefully fade out as physical products this year. They will remain available as DVDs for as long as stock remains.

But fear not! We’ve just added a shopping system for instant delivery of digital media to Store, allowing you to order the various CGE panels and Phosphor Dot Fossils video segments as downloadable MP4 video files playable on any device. (Also available are the original Phosphor Dot Fossils soundtrack and the long-awaited VWORP!1 eBook.)

We’re working on creating downloadable DVD .ISO files, so those so inclined can burn their own physical copies of the various DVDs, complete with menus. The size of these files will present serious challenges to storage and bandwidth, however, and they will only be made available if there’s significant demand for them.

We appreciate everyone who has bought any of the DVDs either at our live appearances or through online purchases. For those who haven’t made the leap, we’ve just eliminated shipping time, replaced it with download time, and made everything extremely affordable. The Classic Gaming Expo content will benefit from this new format, as now you can download only the panels you want to watch, in any combination.

Watch this space for the inevitable announcements of various titles going out-of-print – once they’re gone as physical products, they’ll be digital only. Last call!


PDF = Price Drop, Folks!

Leaders of the PacGot a classic video gamer on your Christmas list? Good news: has permanently dropped the price of the 2-DVD Phosphor Dot Fossils set. First released on DVD in 2008 and 2009, Phosphor Dot Fossils and Phosphor Dot Fossils Level 2 were introduced to a whole new audience this fall as we hit the convention circuit to promote VWORP!1, though the feedback we got was that the existing price point was perhaps a bit steep in the post-standard-def-DVD age of Blu-Ray. We hear you. The two-disc set is now being offered for $15 – a 50% savings – until further notice. This is not an “only until Christmas” deal, and no special codes are required.
