GW is putting stuff in Digital format.

Looks like it is iPad exclusive stuff but this is something of a plus in terms of them stepping up to the current tech.

This being iPad exclusive is somewhat annoying, as I'd prefer to get it on an android tablet (as they're cheaper), but it's a step in the right direction for GW.

Trust them to use Apple as the launch platform.

Otherwise, its about time, they have been lagging behind for a while now.

How much do they cost? I couldn't find the price.

Anyway I guess that's fine as long as they never decide to exclusively publish digitally, I like my hardback books (also I don't have an iPad :P)

Yah thats what I was getting at, it also is a means for them to add in new content. The Stormtalon is in the iPad Codex.

If they stick to just the [email protected]#! for a format then they will loose a LOT of players. I know that in my gaming community they would loose over 90%

Good idea, pity about the format. Kindle version codex (perhaps without a lot of hte extra art) would be pretty damn good.

Ugh, I've wanted an Ipad since the things came out, but I haven't had the cash for one (woe is me, the college student, whose monthly income is...well... yeah.)... and this just is one more thing that I'd love to have an ipad for.

^My relationship with tablets other than the iPad^

How I feel about this announcement on the other hand...

GW does a lot of things that put me off. But hell, obviously I play Warhammer.

Apple is, as far as I'm concerned, more deserving of censorship than profanity or pornography. This is unsettling for me, as GW, someone who only annoyed me up to this point and had a core product I enjoy, has formed an unholy alliance with a company that I fully expect to announce a merger with the Gods of Chaos any day now.

Disclaimer: Hyperbole

If they made it available for other tablets I would be less horrified. Optimally, I'd love to see them make straight PDFs of their books, although this would be redundant with what's already lurking in the corners of the internet...

i also wish that it wasnt exclusively for the ipad/stuffs.
