I say vote with your wallet, buy it if you feel it's price worthy (which it isn't, 2 pages of rules for $40 is not justifiable under any circumstance even with fluff and pretty pictures). Heck you dont even need to do that as all the rules from it are posted in every rumours thread on every forum. Just copy paste the rules into word and print it out.
The 2 pages of rules could have been a free download or at worst put in WD, it should have been a $10 .pdf download which would generate ALLOT more money than at the $40 price point (I can't prove this but common sense suggests that at that price point anyone who buy the Eldar codex would consider it compared to question if it's worth buying at the $40 price point.).
I hope this doesn't sell well, I hope it forces them to rethink their strategy and come out with products of similar quality but at 1/4th the price.
-Whaa whaaa whaaa, you want the same quality product for cheaper! You ungrateful bastard!
Well, if it was $10 I'd consider buying it, that's 1/4th more money they'd make compared to me not even considering it as it is right now.
How many of you consider the $40 price point reasonable? How many of you would consider buying it at the $10 point mark?
-But printing the book costs allot of money! Allot of time was put into the pictures and fluff and all the other shit in it!
Digital version at $10, physical softcopy book at $20 for those that really want it and make the $40 hardcopy the collectors editions.
There are allot of ways to make the Iyanden supplement exciting to buy without making it feel like a rip-off but whoever is responsible for the marketing at GW is a fucking retard.
In the end GW wont change, they will continue to lose market share as they have been doing for the past 10 years and hopefully with GW being sold whoever is taking over can save this sinking ship.
Vote with your wallet, buy if you want to support this type of behaviour from GW.
Yes, you can have the cake and eat it too. GW needs to realise this and adjust accordingly.
