Simple the top ones are the hard copies and retail at 14.99pds the others are electronic kindle versions that retail at... £11.98
The original involved printing costs etc and you end up with an actual book, the kindle version only 3 quid less? Really? Isn't it about time that companies started taking the costs of online publishing seriously, stopped treating consumers as smucks and had prices that reflected the costs involved. Me I'm passing.
Or as they'd say it in the classic Outlaw Josey Wales:
Oh dear. Puts me in mind of BF's venture into plastics. Why are people buying PSC? They must really like plastic! Let's get into plastic, but keep charging twice the price of PSC, because price won't have anything to do with it.... Let's hope the market provides a suitable response.ReplyDelete
Agreed! I'd buy them at 1/2 hard copy price but not at 80% of original price.Delete
Well Amazon are selling the much cheaper!!ReplyDelete
True Greg, but you typically need to add + $10US postage to NZ, direct from Warlord is simpler in this case-I usually pick up the books when getting figures. However, buying books in NZ is another area where the NZ consumers are taken as mugs and so I haven't bought a book in NZ for at least 10 years.Delete
Keep an eye on Google Play as well though as they often do deals. I got the US army list book for £1.13 and a Fistful of Kung Fu for £4ReplyDelete
MY kind of wargame shoppingDelete
That is pretty good Lazywargaming, will do.ReplyDelete
I was on the Kindle store earlier this week and the core book and a few of the supplements were at 99p?ReplyDelete
Already have the hardback books, but was still tempted. Perhaps they were on sale for a short time.
What also annoys me beyond the price differential between physical book and ebook is the variation in price that sometimes happens between countries (I'm in Australia) and most annoying when they won't sell the ebook because of the country I'm in.ReplyDelete
I am hearing you SoY, very, very annoying indeedReplyDelete
Was in the Weta workshop shop last year in Wellington, the NZ dollar is worth roughly .83 US dollar give or take but the recommended retail price in $NZ was twice the $US one- that too is taking the piss!
