The point made about other websites doing more to promote the game than GW themselves is absolutely true. GW website now may as well be a long ass shopping asile that's it. There is next to nothing on the site anymore really. Yet sites like Beasts of War, MWG, whatever site you use do more than GW to promote the hobby, podcasts, battle reports, analysis, discussions etc that doesn't account for the fact that there are at least 4 or 5 rather big 40k forums BaCS, Warseer, BolS, Dakka Dakka, Heresy, that doesn't include any of the others out there that I haven't listed.
Regarding the theory GW trying to sell up, it makes sense if you take into account the speed they are releasing all these codexes which will bring a large chunk of money in for each army. But hasbro? Yuck.....
The Old World just became a fart in the bath.....
