D&D Beyond pricing discussion video- and manufacturing 101

Post by Spectrum » Sun Dec 02, 2018 3:48 pm

For a long time now, I've been annoyed at how electronic versions of books aren't that much cheaper than dead tree versions. After all, they are fundamentally cheaper when it comes to resources.

However, this video offers a better grasp on the entire subject. It doesn't answer all of my questions (like how rpgnow is able to do what they do) but gives a good high level overview.

Enjoy!

I always assumed it was because discounting electronic versions the cost of physical manufacturing would put physical publishers out of business and bring the whole system crashing down.
