God bless them for helping small publishers have an easier go of fulfillment, and I’m glad they took advantage of a niche demand and supplied it.

Sorry, they announced the closing down of retail sales back in early March. Then a few months later they announced this plan to move to a model of selling hard to find games exclusively. This press release had more to do with them relaunching their online store, not ceasing online retail. I guess it does start out talking about how they ceased retail, but that's super old news.

I dunno, "Funagain relaunches online store for hard-to-find games"?

It may be super old news but I had not heard it. Suppose others had not as well.

You need to give businesses a pat on the back when they move with teh times but still manage to support the industry and the customer. Of course they're a business and out to make money but it seems they have identified what parts of the market are doing well and can provide them a good return without needing to price gouge - that's how to fit your business into the economy as well.
