OMFG guys ignore all this for I have something far more important to share!
I preorded Fallout 3, got it and played it and it was great and all that, but just checked the price and WTF! It's much cheaper now!

I WILL BRING DOWN GREAT FIERY BALLS OF RAGE UPON THE WRONGDOERS!

I just think it is a **** move especially since it was clearly in CCPs best interest to have had people preorder.


How is that in their best interest exactly. You are just saying unsubstantiated whining nonsense.

Something I clearly wont do next time, this isn't 'long' after it was released, people preordered a long time ahead or even bought it in the past two months at full price and to then slash the price by a full third 2 months after release is excessive and certainly doens't reward customer loyalty.



Since when is a 33% Sale excessive ? Also, isn't this product's sheer existence a gesture towards customer loyalty ?

Wow folks. We have a 21st Century Self-Entitled Consumer with no clue as to how retail operates at all.

If you think this is bad wait for the launch of Star Citizen. I am even assuming the game will be great and yet still the screams of rage and the flood of tears will come.

People have spent thousands buying ships in that game. Can you imagine the rage when they find out that it is no more difficult to buy a $200 pre order ship in that game than it is to buy a 200M isk ship in Eve.

The rage will rock the foundations of the gaming world.

And how many people are buying gifts at this time of year for people because a particular holiday says it is the proper thing to do? Ever check out those prices the day after?
