.... Why will Matrix not allow this to happen? They do own the game don't they



Not sure if this anecdote gives any insight or not, but recently, when I tried to purchase III and found that it had been "discontinued", I asked nicely of a chap at Matrix, why is III discontinued and not available for me to purchase? I wanted to complete my collection of TOAW games.

Reply: "That game is obsolete."

Not, "SURE, load us another $30, we'll sell it to you." Just...."OBSOLETE. Not selling it to you."

That, to me, was simply madness. Why not offer III at a discount, even at $10, which might lead to more sales of IV? Or offer them both at $40? Did not make sense to me. As I understand, they really are two different branches of TOAW in many respects...but they share a common root.

At the last, I found that I really HAD purchased III a long time ago, and had just forgotted about it. So now I have it ... and Matrix lost a chance at a double sale.

<sigh> go figure.
