A business attempting to gauge a market before jumping in?
That's just awful. How dare they.
They are all about numbers. If the numbers are a bit off, they panic.
Bethesda is a great example of how to do it. Port some games and see how they do. Im sure Skyrim will do well. Doom might be a minor success. The port of Wolfenstein 2 is a bit beyond me tbh. I just dont see that doing well at all.
