Announced today, Games Workshop is going digital. The major news is that Codex: Space Marines is available through iBookstore for iPads (along with 8 other products as of today). The new version of the codex contains more than 300 pages and updates for the stormtalon ship.
Could this be the shape of things to come? More than likely. By ensuring sales through digital media, they create a new income stream and one that might be preferable if they update (i.e. faq and errata) the codices that way from now on. Moreover, they potentially(?) take away revenue stream from online retailers through this method. Clever, appealing and a good move for GW if they keep everything up to date. Pity we can only get the product through iBookstore, but I understand why.
