I'll just point out that there's been cases recently where other, smaller library developers have pre-announced their products weeks in advance, with teasers etc, and they generated just one or two pages of posts, if lucky.But for me the more recent focus on pre-release hype & marketing has become way to over the top.
Here we are approaching 134 pages and 2700 posts for a library that hasn't even been released.
Yes we get a few demos & a walkthrough but IMO a 6-8 week buildup of conjecture,people guessing about content,efficiency and possible future BBC editions gets quite tedious,it becomes 2700 posts of pure speculation.
Yes the Spitfire team are smart,very talented and know how to maximize their profitability.
IMO as successful & talented as they are,they could have had their event & released BBC within 2 or 3 weeks and still have an incredible release.
The dragged out timeframe of the announcement and the eventual release of w/ all of this hype,conjecture and speculation actually turns me off and often makes me leery of preordering.
So I don't put it on Spitfire -- we're the ones hyping BBCSO, not them.
