Quoted from PanzerFreak:
I'm second guessing it but won't make any decisions until I see more. The next live stream is this Weds, likely with a game using updated mechs. With how much effort JJP has put into this game I think people should give them some time and a chance to see the updated game before making a final decision.
In the meantime JJP needs to do something to make up for the removal of the 3 spinning disk toy. A single traditional disk toy is obviously cheaper then a 3x disk toy with 3 motors and LED's. If the price stays the same then where is that amount in dollars being transferred to within the game?
While I agree with what you are saying the MGC show this weekend will more than likely be the last time I (or most) will See this game prior to production which I will Bet will be the Original model which is what sold me a CE to begin with! To wait until later and just see what I get in the box at 12.5 is Not what I thought the plan was while playing this game routinely at 257. Very disappointing move. Delay it to make it work No problem. Deleting main key features not good.
