Totally true, except for the fact that it didn't happen...
Linked on that wikipedia page...
Regardless, there may well be a Reverse Osborne Effect as well, I bought a
Freerunner, but right now I probably wouldn't buy one again, but wait for the
GTA03. If there was a definitive statement telling me that would take at
least an other year to get done I might just buy a GTA02.
And ofcourse there is the 'spend-money-only-once' syndrom, does it really
matter if I buy a GTA02, or a GTA03 if I will never buy both anyway? People
with plenty of money to spend on gadgets probably won't wait, people wo will
wait probably won't by both anyway.
But than again, I know nothing about marketing...
With/Without - and who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about?
