Opusthefowl: I completely agree with you. I would be hard pressed to buy those games for even $10+shipping much less 30% or 50% off their ridiculous price. Not because I cant afford it, but because I don't see the value.
I've noticed for a while now that Matrix is not a very savvy business operation. They treat their customers terribly, the moderators and forums are politically correct, they give you an anniversary coupon that is less in value than the discounts you can be patient for later, and other things I could go on about.
On the positive, I've noticed Matrix is conducting tournaments for some of their games. Nothing better than human vs human competition. If conducted properly can increase interest and revenue dramatically in any game new or old. However, I'm not sure if this is something Matrix came up with, or fans for the various games. They should do this for every title they own.
Unfortunately I think you are tilting at windmills here.
Conflict with the unexpected: two qualities are indispensable; first, an intellect which, even in the midst of this obscurity, is not without some traces of inner light which lead to the truth; second, the courage to follow this faint light. KvC
