The pricing of RPG products is always a highly debated topic. Some game designers and publishers believe that the prices for roleplaying games are already too low for most companies to survive, while some other people believe that especially PDF products are much too expensive.
I am somewhat torn. I understand that publishers want to make some money selling their products, but as someone who collects roleplaying games I am always happy when I get a book pretty cheaply. On the other hand I am willing to pay a lot of money for products which I think are worth their price. When its a full-sized hardcover book with full-color artwork, I am willing to pay even up to 50$, but when PDFs are concerned my limit is around 15$. When I really, really want something, I may pay a few bucks more, but that’s the exception, not the rule!
So, what is your limit for PDF products? Do you think PDFs should cost less than the dead tree versions? Or is it ok, when the PDF costs exactly the same. Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
