We all talk a lot about how GW’s prices are affecting the playerbase It’s time for a community poll and to really get some percentage breakdowns.
Today I want you to help us take the community’s temperature. It’s time to be honest here. I want you to look at your hobby budget, price some of the things you want to buy and answer the poll. Here’s the question:
a) Prices are good – GW is costed properly for their quality now. They should focus on even higher quality to pull ahead from any competition. My GW buying habits are largely unchanged.
b) Lower Prices 10% – GW is slightly overcosted now. It’s not too bad and a small reductions would increase sales substantially. I now keep an eye on my GW purchases.
c) Lower Prices 20% – GW is moderatly overcosted now. It’s pretty bad and it will take a notable change to turn things around. I now buy only occasional GW products.
d) Lower Prices 30% – GW is severely overcosted now. GW is killing itself with their prices and needs to act decisively to turn things around. I am pretty much priced out of GW games.
Remember to compare their costs to the competition that mosts interests you.
While not on the poll, PLEASE DON’T just do the knee-jerk “they should cut prices as much as possible”. I really am trusting you as savvy-consumers to seriously think about what amount of stuff you buy currently and would buy at lower price levels – then take a hard comparison to what other companies you are interested in are charging for their minis. You might be surprised…
Have at it.
