Planetary Annihilation Early Access Spotted at Retail

GameInformer has a response from Uber Entertainment to a report that appeared on Reddit showing that the Early Access version of Planetary Annihilation is available as a boxed retail version, a new evolution in the process of selling admittedly incomplete games. GameInformer reached out to Uber to ask why they were releasing the unfinished real-time strategy game this way, and "why not?" was the response from Uber's Jan Mavor. "At Uber we've been trying really hard to innovate on business models during the entire development of [Planetary Annihilation]." Mavor explains, "We had planned to do a retail release all along and the early access box came about as part of our experimental attitude. Since early access works so well, our partners at Nordic thought that it would be worth trying an early access retail edition and we agreed it was a cool idea." The supplied image of the box shows a 39.99 price tag and a banner saying the purchase "includes free upgrade to full game."
