yeah i see,
but it's no fair play from GW!
sell books and sell electronic books =)
especialy (digital book have updates)


I think it's will be great to have promo code for all persons who buy paper book.
And Im perry sure, a lot of you want to take it free, and no want to pay double!.

You don't have to buy both.

in theory yes,
but i don't want bring with me books, and it's more easy to have digital codex + digital magic + digital rulebook

I like paper, but in digital you can move, zoom and find all quick. and for this reason better to have both, but don't pay for both =)...
well, lets just wait for nice Epub copy, or maybe someone will share it.

As the eBook is "sold" by G.W. I doubt the legality of sharing it freely. A scan of the hardcopy book is, unfortunately, also an infringement of the copyrights.

I get your point though.. I'd hate to "buy the same book twice". But much like buying a movie on a tape doesn't give me the movie on Blu-Ray, so is buying one version of the book not going to give the other one for free.

I suspect that, if they were to offer both for one price, then the prices would go up. The eBooks, by what I've seen, are somewhat different from the paper versions. This means they had to be re-edited. This cost needs to be covered somehow.

Perhaps, they could offer a discount for people who bought the paper book. Or perhaps they could offer a cheaper combo for people who want to have both.

Funny thing is, the ebook has errors in it while the paper book doesn't.

That would be another indication that the production/development is quite different.. or at least at some point splits up. I suspect not all corrections to the paper version made it to the eBook, or were lost in transition.
It's strange though, that such a thing happens on the eBook... which could have a spelling checker.

I just buy the iBooks version. Don't bother getting both. And the iBook version gets updated too.

Played a guy who brought the ebook. There was a super big error. Like they gave the Cauldron crew killing blow or some such. I had to show him how the paper book didn't have it and that the paper book should be the default. But how do you argue that when GW produces both?

well
I think Ibook version better, because it's have updates. and paper book have no updates (solo in white dwarf) and it;s not so quick.
So i think Ibook version is MORE updated and have less mistakes. (but in future)

P.S. ill brought tape video many years ago, and after this time all we have Blu-ray ( but we also have Video Torrents) =)

But anyway ( GW up price and do a lot shiz to gain our money for nothing).
BUT anyway i think it's not so fair.

When I first got the iBook version, they had the Darkshard listing in the Witch Elfs entry. Correct Witch Elf stats in the back though. It got corrected pretty quick though.

Most comics company's now include a single use code in their issues that grants access to a digital copy in their preferred app. This is awesome.

GW will however never do it.

BTW I own both Hard copy and digital of both WFB & Druchii books, the digital copy is great for on the go checks with its included search feature!

Well it's not so hard.

And maybe it's illegal, but ill bought it once, and dont want to pay twice.

Epub possible download from ipad easyly.
Connect to Itunes or otro filemmanager, and just copy.

And im so surprised, i still cant find it in internet.
