Quoted from thewool:
That GB vs TH thread has me feeling really bummed out over my TH preorder. Nice to read some more optimistic thoughts...
I wouldn't worry about it to much. I think it has more to do with how Jack promotes his games. It's a long drawn out process to try and rake in preorders over a long period of time. The problem is, you don't get that nice big shocking reveal. If he would have kept it a secret and did a surprise reveal like stern does with their titles. There would be a lot of more excitement over games actually going out the door.
JJP is like GNR's Chinese Democracy. People were waiting years for it to come out. Was pushed back so much, that by the time it came out. nobody gave a shit anymore. When it finally was released. It wasn't horrible, but wasn't great either. Seems similar to what happened with hobbit.
If people would have watched the slow progression of Ghostbusters over the past 2 1/2 years, nobody would be really going ape shit at this point.
