Matrix Going Limited Edition

Hi,

What it is : for particular games in the future Matrix will only sell
a fixed amount of copies.

The idea is that by limiting the amount of copies available for a
particular game they keep their value in the second-hand market, so
the higher price for their top tier games like War in the East and
Battles from the Bulge becomes more palatable.

A move no doubt as a reaction on the success of Steam discounts and
the rise of tablets with their $1.99 prices for games.

Will this sales trick of artificial scarcity work ? Could be, it seems
to work for limited edition boardgames so why not ?

Greetz,

Eddy Sterckx

Yeah, he admitted it farther down. But the regulars in there, some real hard-core guys, bought it hook and line. Whining, knashing, rending of garments. Classic April Fools.
