WotC may republish old edition material

"republishing old editions. cant say anything yet but there are plans." - from WotC at GenCon.

Who knows what this really means. Maybe they will just bring back the pdf's, which I'd be very happy with. Maybe they'll actually do a print version of something, which would be awesome. I find it interesting that they are even considering it, though. I suspect 4e is doing even worse than I had imagined.

What would tick me off is if they just reprint 3.5 in an effort to screw over Paizo. I wouldn't be at all surprised by it if they did, though. Supposedly, Pathfinder sales have been neck-and-neck with 4e sales, and possibly even beating 4e during some months.

After going back and playing a 3.5 game at the beginning of the month, I'd be surprised if most players would want to go back to it after playing PF, but I wouldn't put it past WotC to try. I'm thrilled that they would go back to make older stuff available again, though.

I think the ship has sailed. Considering how WotC has done with licensing, who'd want to get back in bed with them?
