Hi all

 

Well I got paid yesterday and went onto the site to buy the beta, only to find that it is out of stock. Do we know if this is it and all of the printed books have been sold or whether there will be more stock coming in/being sent out to international outlets (hopefully including the uk)?

 From what they said it was going to be a limited print run of 5,000 books (if i remember correctly) so that would not surprise me.

I think I recall hearing someplace that it was going to be limited to 5000 units, but I don't know if that was overall, or only 5000 units avaiable at GenCon and Celebreation VI each.

Either way, kinda makes me glad I bought this the Friday the product line was announced

This concerns me, since my copy arrived more than a little bit damaged.

I had hoped customer service could replace it, but if there are no more to be had…

 Sith, I need a copy too! I was waiting as an international customer as told, but if I missed the chance because of this, I will be very angry… and anger leads to the Dark Side!

Most companies set aside a limited number of copies for just that kind of situation.  I would call Customer Service and see if they could replace it.

I am pretty certain I heard 5000 in the Fantasy Flight Key Note at Gen Con.

 Wow, glad I picked mine up as quickly as I did! I was tempted to buy another one for my son, guess I'll have to wait for the official product.

Something else to consider is that FFG has probably set aside a number of copies for their retailer program, as well as a small batch set aside for "print run issues" like missing or duplicate pages.

So it's likely more a case of "no more stock to sell individually at the moment" than "warehouse has been cleaned out."

 sold out is a good sign, shows that the vocal complaints about having to pay for the beta were a classic minority. i hope that the majority of people that got involved submit feedback and help FFG tidy up the final release.

That sounds promising, I was hoping that it would ot be a case of all books being sold.

First of all, that marketing strategy is still approaching Palladium levels of sleaze.  That being said, I agree that it's apparently working if they sold out.  Even though five thousand isn't much considering Star Wars fans.

 Yeah, on that note, I could have sworn the figure given at the panel was actually 25,000 copies, not 5,000.

Well, unlike Palladium, FFG is fully intending to improve the product based on player feedback, where Palladium just takes your money and keeps shoveling out the same "product" no matter how many people claim for clarifications or updates to the rules.

Also, FFG is bound by the fact that for-sale PDF products are covered by an entirely different portion of LFL (LucasArts), so without getting a whole 'nother license (and increasing the cost involved in producing the RPG), there's nothing they can do.  Even WotC, with Hasbro backing them, only managed to get web articles out based on a contractual loophole that pegged the web content as "supplemental material to the print products" or some-such.

And based on what we're seeing in the forums here so far, it sounds like FFG is getting plenty of feedback, and not just in terms of typos and grammatical issues.

And even then, from what I'm told, every word had to be approved by Lucasfilm before it was published online.  WotC even tried to do a Star Wars RPG Podcast - but only got 2 episodes up - as each one had to be vetted by Lucas before being published.
