I like how nadeo likes to pretend its product is highly marketable to a wide audience, the likes of CoD, instead of acknowledging that its core sales demographic is the niche community it perpetually defecates on. it's cute. "Oh, we'll reward all the newcomers to the series by letting them buy all the games at once. And the core community that bothered to buy the environments separately over the years and support us financially? they can wait another year for the new environment, and receive none of the upgrades from turbo."

I literally wouldn't mind if they did this *after* they finished TM2. But oh no. It's telling though that most of the people (community members) i've talked to seem jaded by this announcement.

apparently we'll receive most of the stuff which is new in TMTurbo, so eventually there will be almost no reason to play TMTurbo over TM2.

I highly doubt ubisoft would allow them to do that. And if tm2 does get all that stuff, then what's the bloody point of anoucing turbo?

to answer your question: to get money, and bring more publicity to TM as a whole. on the internet, as far as I've seen, the reception of TMTurbo was pretty good.

TM Turbo will be a finished and polished product. It wont recieve updates (except for bugfixes probably (lol)).
While MP and its games/titles will recieve updates and be Hylis experiment/toy and be in constant evolution.

But again, I agree that this seems rather stupid tbh.

Only stupid thing is that it will be out for PC as well. Otherwise, everything is very great news to me.

But this fact sucks ass, honestly. There's no reason to try it or move into it for PC players.

hylis said that "players would be sad if TMTurbo wouldn't be released on PCs". I wouldn't care honestly.

I dont know.. Stickyroads and the updated UI looks cool, same with the overall theme-change. I would be sad if it was on consoles and PC players would have to stick with only the old and useless UI in MP.

No idea if this will be implemented in MP at a later stage tho.

Hylis says a lot of things. I usually take most of it with a grain of salt untill I actually see the update live on my computer.
