I buy movies with physical discs and digital downloads all the time. Because both formats are extremely convienent to have. Aaron, not everyone lives in areas with good game stores. There is one in the area I live and it's ok.
But it has the same problem as traditional book stores: I think Roll20, dnd beyond, and fantasy grounds are sufficient evidence the issue isn't with helping out local retail stores and is more along the lines of illegally produced copies.
WotC takes pirating seriously and the more it occurs the less likely they are to pursue that avenue for game products. I would buy the retail store argument more if online retailers like Amazon didn't exist. I've never heard of someone buying a pdf over the physical book from a brick in mortar store fairly common I think for people to buy the pdf and the book. Though its entirely possible the official reason is because of brick and mortar store relations I don't think that is an accurate reason as Amazon hurts sells way more than pdfs would.
This doesn't necessarily translate to 5th because you are actively producing books and can earn money on them without Pdfs. Not making pdfs will detour people from getting them online as virus' potential legal issues, etc. May detour some individual. If you make official pdfs you end up with only one person in a gaming group buy them and share without the normal drawbacks.
Hence I think that is more of a reason than retail stores despite what the official reason might be. That's probably a big part of why retail stores are set up to be able to be selling the books before online retailers can ship them; as that makes retail stores the go-to for all customer priorities other than "It has to be digital or I'm not getting it" and "I don't care when I get, I just want it at the lowest price point available".
From my experience in retail, which I'll admit is limited, stores don't consider people that aren't willing to pay the price the store sets for something as "hurt sales" - they consider them not to be potential sales in the first place. Sign In Register. Anyone else agree? Rollback Post to Revision RollBack. Well, with a pdf version, they sell less books, due to unauthorised copy. It is understandable. I believe DDB is an answer to this problem.
I also think after 4e and the PDF situation that happened, they are guarding the books: We will see the price of that. Everything announced here is already done by Roll20 Since last year and Fantaisy Ground Since 2 years ago This seems like Curse Gaming only wanting a part of the pie. While they may not be an official reason given, I am fairly certain that at this point it is common knowledge that the amount of pirating related to the PDFs is why WotC decided to no longer continue PDFs for their newer content i.
Given the likelyhood that the products are already digital, it wouldn't take a lot of work for WotC to produce a pdf which selling would cost them nothing and so it would be pure profit. True20 and Fantasy grounds are not Pdfs and also require purchasing additional software. Last edited by NightsLastHero: Mar 29,
