For a game of this size and scope, $99 is arguably ON PAR with other huge grognard games that Matrix has released. It was a steal when they released it (AND you got books!)
But people complained due to customs/additional shipping etc, and asked for a DL only version.
They gave it to you. End of story, guys. Sheesh.
What are you talking about... They still put on taxes which brings this game that has NO AI up to a total of
about 140$ us
Someone, dunno WHO, but someone has done some seriously wrong Price/demand calculations.
There are games out there that has cost hundreds of millions of dollars to produce and they sell for 70-80 bucks,
and said with deep respect for this one mans huge effort, it have not cost a fraction of that.
If they actually sold it at a resonable Price, more people would buy it, i know i certainly would. This would create
more revenue and they would earn more Money AND they would have a lot of very satisfied and loyal customers, instead
of no customers and small income.
Can you do us a favour please? Its easy to spout anything that comes into your head and present it as fact, but how about you provide some facts to support what you say?
On what basis do you matter of factly state the price/demand calculations are wrong?
On what basis do you matter of factly state that the price charged is not reasonable?
What prey tell, is a "reasonable price"? Reasonable for who? Matrix? The customers? The developer? ADG? who? Please confirm the economics of the deal to justify such comments and enable us to understand.
What research have you done such that you know a drop in price guarantees a higher revenue - where is that price, and how many people will buy at which price? If my local Mercedes dealer sold a CLK at a reasonable price I know I would certainly buy it. The price I could afford it at would bankrupt Mercedes, but hey, lets not let cold economic facts of life get in the way.
The game is the game at the moment, warts and all, good and bad. How will getting more customers, guarantee more very satisfied and loyal customers - what like Dabrion you mean?
No customers and no income? Please explain further.
Finally, if dropping price is a retailers nirvana for happy, prosperous trading, please tell us why any company goes out of business.
Thank-you. I look forward to your detailed response
