Silent Hunter 5 and Gold Edition Preorders

Ubisoft announces preorders are now being accepted for Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic and Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic Gold Edition, two versions of the submarine simulation due for release on March 4. The Gold Edition will be released via digital distribution, offering a couple of perks, including "seven unique submarines and enemy ship skins," which sounds quite familiar to the "7 unique submarine & enemy ship skins" promised with the Collector's Edition announced in January. Images of some ship models accompany the announcement, and here's word:
Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic hails the return of the number one submarine simulation. For the first time, the player will be able to play as a U-boat captain leading his crew from a first-person view in a true dynamic campaign. Operate against Allied shipping across the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea and participate in famous encounters with strong enemy warships.

The Gold Edition will be available for download only and will contain seven unique submarines and enemy ship skins. The Gold Edition will also include the Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic Official Guide containing 110 pages of crew details, submarines, ships and weapons as a pdf on the build.

I'm sure they'll really miss the 20 sales they're not going to get from Blue's News forum-dwellers.
You may want to take a wonder over to the ubi forums and the subhunter/subsim forums to see the number of people who are refusing to buy based on this. Subsims may be a niche game, but they're also very dedicated players with a very strong modding community.

edit:
I have a feeling this will be the same deal...
Don't count on it, UBI is coming off as "we know best, because we know best." Not the mentality you want to present to consumers, hasn't work for any company in the past and bankrupted plenty of others.
