Well, this game isn't for the average sim fan. This is the definitive sim for die hard tank sim fans. It pretty much took up where M1 Tank Platoon II left off, adding a lot of other bells and whistles. There will be folks out there that spend the cash for this, and I expect that you'll see some sales to government types (units looking for sustainment training without being tied to the COFT, etc..).

What would be the difference between the later edition and the $125 one? I'm truly teetering on buying this.

Differences listed here:

Mostly engineering but also fire support, will be reduced in "Steel Beasts 2", which is the normal game priced edition.

Watch for my review of this at Wargamer in April. It'll take me that long to absorb it.

yeah, very pricey...does anyone know the price and the release date for the dumbed-down "entertainment for consumer" version SB2 is going to be released?

I wouldn't call it "dumbed down" as much as "limited feature.

Sorry, didn't mean it as an insult to game! So, any idea when the SB2 version will be released? Do you think it a marketing decision to release the more pricey SBPP first before releasing the cheaper SB2?

No idea about the release date. Every time I try to fathom marketing, I get bad headaches. They may want to skim off the hard core first and then hit other gamers.

Now I have to take an asprin.
