Where are youi living? YES, it is a world with little patience now.
Personally I still play th 1987 Star Wars RPG. Age of a game means nothing to me if it is good.
But the point is that it is a fickle and extremly competetive market. Take D&D 3/3.5. Sure some people play it, and there is still some OGL stuff released for it, but a good chunk of those players have moved on to D&D4 or Pathfinder.
The groups I play with don't have the time to play even a fraction of the RPGs they own, if it wasn't for me then Doctor Who would most likely be overlooked in favour of D&D, Pathfinder, Gamma World, World of Darkness, Call of Cthulhu, Shadowrun, WFRP, Rogue Trader, Star Wars, Paranoia...
The fact remains that if you want people to buy your product you need to SELL the product. C7 had people hooked, due to the delays they've got all the hard work trying to hook them a second time with a game they already own. We need the re-release quick of they can then focus on getting the sourcebooks out which is what most players want the most.
I jut want to add that having spoke to several gamers at my club last night C7 are seen as messing people about. 12 Months ago they were a big name with Doctor Who and announcing Lord of the Rings. Now people fed up and are not even bothering to check their release schedule any more.
