This is very disappointing as this is THE game I was most excited about (I am # 147). Damon - I support your intentions but am not sure it is advised teenage in contac twithout legal council at the helm. I am no legal expert, do have a marketing background, and see three possible paths:
1. As mentioned previously in another thread, the ARA and DP lawyers find the mid-point that is not perfect for either but respects the investments of us as customers. I hate to say this but, having done business in Holland, flexibility is not a top three attribute
2. As buyers, we offer to pay the extra $1000, in an escrow count, payable upon delivery. At this point I am more than willing to do this rather than lose my entire payment. I thin this is the most practical option
3. Universal is brought into the equation by us making this a PR issue for them in such a way that they are motivated to make help resolve this. I would hope that we have someone with PR and/or social networking experience that could help to escalate this.
