And it may be an issue with finances and Steams cut of the revenue. But this sudden change of sales tactic is a bit surprising.

We get more publicity on Steam by not doing a pre-order and getting all the orders to happen at once when the game is released.

So better overall to do it that way, if possible, since it actually leads to more publicity and more total orders.

As Markus stated in a previous post. The fact that the pre-order is coming late and window is short is a very GOOD thing for the company.

Short pre-order period = More full price sales = more money for development + staff + Beer, Wine, food, rent, etc.

Trying to appear on that best seller list does increase visibility. I can understand where OOTPD is coming from.
Thank you for the honesty!

My greatest hope is that Bartolo Colon will be the cover athlete for OOTP 20.

Hoping there is more work done on 3D mode and AI GM, trading, etc. And we get to see some live action of 3D mode or at least pictures.
