In Response To: How to fund spops (scarab)

: The gameplay should have added extra story elements. But they should think
: ahead so that they could do CGI that includes the extra elements. I
: suggest that they should note our handlers' verbal reactions to what we
: do. Then show our handlers at their workstations and the people on the
: bridge. Then they can give their verbal reactions in CGI. Then splice it
: all together into a DVD/blue ray that they could sell. That would help
: fund spops.

I have to imagine that it's much cheaper to serve digital downloads (or streams, *barf*) than to master/produce/distribute DVDs/Blurays.

With netbooks and tablets becoming more common place, actually having a disc drive isn't. So there's that too.

There's always the exclusive route as well. Eg, offering something exclusively on Netflix (I believe the new Arrested Development episodes are such)
