Currently Downloading Civ5 on stream and waiting for my postman to get me my copy of the game(probably on his way home) and it came to me(que windows 7 commercial flashback) How many of you guys would of DLed FFIV on freakin steam or(insert other DL source here) had they JUST given you the option? I know i sure as **** would of.
In this day and age of DLs being so readily available i fail to see why this option wouldnt be given.
A. No cost whatsoever for CD-DVD printing(yes i know cost is minimal but a dollar is a dollar)
B. No upset people about JP getting it at this time and this country getting it before that one.
C. No real need for pre-ordering which actully in this case might of boosted sales as ive seen quite a few people wanting to scrounge around the last minute when they finnally decided they wanted the CE.
A. How could they possibly justify the CE price w/out the dorky dustcollectors? (fine mail those to me but send me my key in an email that lets me start installing the game via download)
B. Some people wont have enough disk space to DL the install and then install the game. (Duly noted they can still order the CDs and wait)
C. They would have to pay the DL distributer money (fine do the DL via your own site... no cost to you but the set up and maintenance)
Is there really any reason to not offer this game as a DL that you guys can think of? Right now any valid ones really escape me.
