What the serious ...? $51.94 AUD just for a digital download.
Well that's a crapper of a price tag just to see if I want the actual book. Time to find me a free version from somewhere online. You are not giving your customers a lot of reasonable options.

AUD$20 or less I would have paid; Any more is greedy as heck.

Still waiting for this to go on sale. I already have the first edition and $40 for a slightly revised second edition is way way too much.

Title of the book as listed here needs to include the fact that it is the 2nd Edition of the rules set. It is confusing with its current title and I missed it when I was looking for it.

A friendly reminder to everyone complaining about the price. This book in particular is essentially 2 books.

Not really. It's size is still of one pretty regular core book for both player and GM. There are many books of this size and quantity of content, that are much cheaper and put no less affort too. Just to name a few: Exalted 3rd ed, Shadow of the Demon Lord, Star Trek Advantures, Conan - Adventures in an Age Undreamt Of.
Wyrd are just having trouble to make and adequate price. 10$ down and I would totally buy it even if it still is pretty expensive. But a PDF for 40$? No thanks. I prefer to wait for it to be on sale, for them to change a price or... Or I'll just play the first edition (which by the description in this book on their website, Wyrd almost didn't make changes to). Even the page count is less that it was in Fatemaster+Fated Almanac. Where did they put the additional content?

420 pages? Not really. There are plenty of other books out there that are this size and that are at a much more reasonable price. In fact, ALL White Wolf's 20th Anniversary core books are well over 500 pages and are close to half this price.
And Wyld has never answered my question, if we purchase this highly priced pdf will we receive a discount on the physical when it becomes available.

The problem is the .PDF is the same price as the Hardback version. So why would anyone buy the .pdf when you can buy a hardback for the same price? The whole idea of digital is because there is no printing costs etc. it is usually (99%) of the time about 10-15 pounds/dollars cheaper than the hardback...

So much for buying the PDF to see if the game or hardback is worth the money.

$40 for a digital book? That's a bit much. Will you be offering a discount on the physical book when / if the PoD becomes an option to those who buy the digital copy?

They've just recently published a hardbound version; I'd think a print-on-demand option will be a long while coming, surely?

Possibly true. $40 pdfs are still a hard sell.

That is crazy expensive for a pdf!

Wow it's like they don't want people to buy their game :/ even at the sale price of $29.90 it's still expensive for a .pdf come on Wyrd you're pricing your game out the market...

For $40, I better get a LOT of PDFs for that price. It sounds interesting (because I like Malifaux 2e), but for this price, I'd rather buy 2 or 3 PDFs from someone else.

Its two books in one. Fatemasters/Fated, they just put them in one book this edition but its still a few hundred pages.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
