Not if you don't have an Xbox. I have never played Jade and am certainly enjoying being able to play it now.

Original release date was 2007

We have never stated a release date for Dragon Age. We haven't even announced a publisher yet.

Dragon Age is still under active development. We just announced way earlier than any of our other projects.

At the time I bought it, there was no platinum version.

However, Hordes was directly next to the Gold version.
Then, tragically, you were caught in the time between Hordes and Platinum. Sorry.

Except that every other GOLD version game I've bought included all previous material. It's totally my fault that they just decided to change the definition of "gold".
At the time we made the "gold" package, only the Shadows expansion exists. Hordes was under development but was months away from being done. I am not really sure what you expected as NWN Gold "included all previous material."

Once Hordes was out, Atari asked us to make the Platinum edition that "included all previous material" i.e. had Shadows and Hordes.

if they weren't better off throwing all that work into NWN2

Well, considering Obsidian is doing NWN2 and the fact that the DLA group did the new Premium module, the total amount of time that BioWare invested in all of this was not a burden

If game developers are anything like gamers, than they tend to be lazy, procrastinative people.

Wow. Then I don't work with a single gamer. Sad, really...

News Comments > No Premium Module Program for NWN2?
4. Clarifications Jun 8, 2006, 12:51  CrushBug 
 
The existing Premium modules are not shutting down nor are they going to stop being sold.

Currently, there are no plans for any future NWN1 Premium Modules at this time.
