With the PS VR releasing in less than two months, more developers are pulling back the curtain on titles that will soon be playable on Sony’s new hotness. Rez has been announced for a while, but it will receive a special edition physical release available exclusively through iam8bit.com.
You can also order shirts and pins, but, the creme de la creme will be a 2xLP limited edition vinyl release of the game’s soundtrack. It will also include a 7″ record with additional songs from Area X, a 48 page retrospective book with interviews from the original design team, and a digital download of the soundtrack. The vinyl will come in standard and picture disc editions, and you can read more about what is included here.
With both retro video games and vinyl sales increasing their audiences over time, it is no surprise that the two would come together. Even if you do not like the warm, smooth sound of vinyl, they would make great framed pieces of video game art.
Interested in picking up this up when it releases later this year? Do you think vinyl is only for hipsters or your dad? Let us know in the comments.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
