Quoted from Deaconblooze:
I thought the price was going to be $9,000 after preorder? Or, are they just selling this as a post-preorder LE (basically with a $1,000 rug..)?
Shipping is rolled into this price too.
Quoted from RTS:
I agree. There's probably many others who feel the same about the $1500 increase.
If say just 100 people turn away from a purchase now, DP loses $850,000 in potential sales rather than earning $150,000 more from the increase.
I think more prospective income is lost than gained at the new price point. I don't think it was a good pricing move.
I'd agree. More profitable to keep price lower and sell more units when a price increase is expected to stifle sales. In this case, $7k for TBL and I am a buyer. At preorder level of $8.5k, I'm on the fence, but would consider purchasing if game play is outstanding. But $10k is too much for this pin and I won't be a buyer. I would happily seek one to play in the wild or at a party, and will probably play it for hours, it just won't be going home with me.
This is where a NSNL would come in handy. Calm the nervous natives with an update and identify outstanding issues. Add a few pics and walla! Also not buying any argument that it takes too much effort away from the project to provide some answers to your paid-in and potential customers.
