Its always nice to be pleasantly surprised when your favorite game companies do something that makes you remember why you like them in the first place.
Not only are they offering all the MKII books in digital format, they are priced lower than paper versions, and you can update them as errata fixes are made! Anyone familiar with Privateer knows theyre much more prompt about 'patching' their rules when a problem is found than some of the others out there.
Not to mention the IKRPG books, and all the issues of NQ will be available as well(including subscriptions- no more relying on that pesky mailman!)
I dont have an e-reader yet, but knowing I wont have to try and force some PDFs to work and I can play the game off a small tablet or reader has me much more motivated to get one.
Also, it seems they have learned from the mistakes of thier recent past, as some of you may recall the War Room app that was released with much fanfare but kind of fizzled. It was a great attempt, but fell short in the QC department as the programming staff hired really wasn't up to a job of that size. This time however- they went to a reputable professional company with Leeway/Hertz.
Is Privateer the first major gaming company to do this? I havent heard of any others doing it for more than some PDFs.
