Sometimes we need to look past the price of the game and think in terms of the long run. A good example of that would be my purchases of Uncommon Valor, War In The Pacific and War In The Pacific/AE. The cost becomes a joke when thinking in terms of all of the hours I have played them. I can't say that I'll be addicted to this game, but it sure does hold lots of promise.

The game IS brilliant. It is very easy to open up the scenario editor and start plopping units down and before you know it, you have a nice little scenario down. Congratulations on the new addition to the family.

Myself, i didn't even flinch at the cost. I have been waiting for something like this for literally YEARS. And i am not alone on that.

Yeah, but consider that it's not like you come across a sim of this quality every year (or even every TEN years). Considering the longevity that this game already seems to have built into it, the current price might even make it a bargain.

yeah guys ive no doubt its a great game.thats what i was saying but with the price [its the uk tax on top thats the killer..20%].i dont have a problem paying for quality i bought BFTB and WITE so thats not the problem..and i know it will have long term built in as the two ive mentioned above have. but its just out of reach with the new family member

thanks for the comments about our little daughter by the way guys

I feel your pain, and hope that sale comes soon (but don't hold your breath, Steam this is not). The good news is you'll probably be getting so little sleep you'll be too tired to play it anyway

How are you so sure that the buyer will like the game and play many hours? The buyer is has a lot to lose if he buys an expensive game and ends up not liking it.

I thought Command Ops was a waste because I don't play it.
But Witp and Command was good for me.

Releasing demos would take some of the ffear out doubtful buyers.

Nothing stopping Matrix from putting a new game on one of their new Sale of the Week, in fact I'd like to see them do some of that, see what results it gets them.
I'd guess a lot of fence sitters would make the plunge in that week and it would turn out very well for them.

Harpoon was just on it a couple of months ago, they are due for more naval game sales!
