And would it have been so hard to put Sold out instead of Closed on the website? Closed implies they stopped for reasons aside from stock issues.

What Vampko said. ALL of those games, have a limited 'first print' (like Darkness, Bulletstorm, and Battlefield) but AAA games have a HUGE first print compared to these sort of games. Better sellers compared to niche stuff. Also, for games like Arkham City, sometimes stores order way too many LEs for a game and then they sit on shelves forever. Or, in a case of Gamestop, people cancel their orders, thus having a surplus of limiteds sitting around.
With niche games like this, many of us are BIG into collecting, or just plain like soundtrack/artbook bonuses. When they mean limited, they really ARE limited. So yes, stock IS an issue when it comes to these games. I've seen a few Nisa games sell out before preorders ended. Since these are in limited runs, they can only make so many, and then that's it! AAA games are different, assuming alot of people will buy them :/ Some do, but not many. The only thing Nisa DID print a large number of LEs for, was Disgaea 4, for their biggest name title. In that case, I'm sure ALOT more got printed, compared to MK2.
