Tabula Rasa Op/Ed: Retail Restlessness

Don't start bailing;
we're not even taking on water!

With Tabula Rasa Collector's Edition being listed at half it's retail
price this week at some retailers, it's no surprise a few
players have become concerned about it's success. Is the game
doing well?  Should people be concerned about the future
development?  RadarX gives four perfectly logical reasons for
the price drop, and explains why there won't be a need to break out the
lifeboats just yet.

Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa launched just over a
month ago and while
there have been a few bugs the client is stable. All the major
mechanics are in place and most of the players players seem to be
having a good time. While we'll never be privy to the actual box sales
or number of current subscribers everything seems to have gone as
NCsoft expected. This week a number of players noticed the Collector's
Edition of Tabula on sale at Amazon for a mere $30 in North America
which is a significant difference from the $60 many of us paid. What
happened? Did the game launch that poorly?
