Preordering is usually the most expensive route to go.

You know this.

Retail stores having sales, sometimes even have price variances locally.

You know this.

IF SOMETHING DID NOT SELL ENOUGH FOR INITIAL EXPECTATIONS, items are then put up for a cheaper price.

You know this.

This is just more useless whining by self-entitled game players who know nothing about how the world of retail sales actually works and are demanding CCP follow some business killing retail model that does not exist.

You know this.

Pre-orders got some swag that isn't available anymore either.

HTFU you consumer you.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

I wasn't considering buying the collector's edition until it got discounted to $100.

OP is a loser, but I'm happy. The fact that OP is sad makes me appreciate my purchase even more.

CCP please sell OP more things and then turn around and sell them to me at a discounted price please.

You got one of a kind pre order bonuses that you've been enjoying since you got them. I missed the preorder deadline by two days so I paid full whack and got no extras.

I agree.

Thank you, CCP, for 'screwing' your loyal customers.

Today would be just a bit more boring without OP's temper tantrum.

This reminds me that I should enter all those codes I got for purchasing this early...

...perhaps I should open the box too and see what's inside...

...and should collect all those "daily" Yule Tide whatever token gifts.

OP is either ten years old or has simply breezed through life blissfully unaware of the world around him not to have seen this coming.

Welcome to the real world, kraiklyn. Get used to it. It only gets more disappointing.

OP while I can understand you feel slightly spurned by the price drop, I think you are over reacting.

Do you feel butt hurt if you buy a plex and they go on sale too?

Seriously WTH are you thinking.

People preordered half a year ahead of time and within months you slash the price by a third. Last time I will ever do preorder something with CCP and I assume many customers will feel the same.


Haven't figured out yet that you're an income stream, and customer loyalty is non-existent?

Are you talking about the Collectors Edition? If so, why does it matter? "we" got some extra things they don't get :)

Shameless money-grabbing before October.
Now more shameless money grabbing (& layoffs) before the end of the year.

Oh my, I so much want to see CCP's financial statements for 2013... Cool
