No they were not spokespeople for everyone, but its slightly strange that not one person - not one - refuted that statement (which was made many times loud and clear) and said that NO, they would want a cheaper version.
As for the "probable" reason you gave for people not stating they expected it to be cheaper.... I don't really think so do you, not when this was such a hot topic at the time?
Given the hostility in this place and (further) any price thread for any game, I don't see why that is strange at all. And yes - I do think that was an aspect.
This place is full of unofficial forum police. Whenever anyone brings up a price topic, it goes to hell in a hand basket.
There was a statement made by Erik that a statement would be made and everything went pretty quiet. I believe that was because people thought he was on the case.
I also believe, along with the hostility, that people didn't think for a split second that Matrix would select one product in their entire arsenal of games to set the DD version at the same price as the physical product. Especially as you lot were pointing out how important the books were and how big a part of the purchase it was.
Regardless - they were asking Matrix - not anyone else. For anyone else to answer, without an official answering, just means this thread goes round and round like all the others. I thought I explained this to you before.
You turn up from time to time to have a go (at whoever) - and in your posts complain that threads go round and round - but cannot see the irony that that, by posting, you are part of that process that you profess to be so fed up of. I thought I had explained this to you before?

And it's all the same nonsense. "I don't like the price!! Drop it so I can buy it."
Really, if they can't buy a *game*, they need a long, hard, look in the mirror to see what the problem is.
And being a private company, they don't *have* to explain their pricing decisions to anyone here. Don't know why there are those who think they're entitled to it.
CwiE, a computer port of an old game, sells for $60. For those who don't know what that is, it's SPI/DG's War in Europe. Fore about $40 more, you get the whole bleeping WW2. And in more detail.
