Quoted from jdpilot:
From a business standpoint, less money for licensing equals more money in the pocket.
Gary does not agree. He believes a licensed title will always do better and that it's absolutely necessary to get the first wave of games ordered. And it's obviously working. People just assume if they license a property they must have more than the art. It's going to take people getting burned on quite a few titles before we see buying habits change. And I wonder if it will impact the ops that have got to have the newest games first enough to make a difference.
