First of all, despite logic or convenience, hardcopy is more popular than online alternatives to the general person, which includes gamers of all sorts. This is a generalization, does not apply to everyone, but it applies to a huge population. Generally, more people would like to buy a hardcover copy of a novel, than download an internet alternative. For me, it's for the feel, it's easier to read (well doesn't your necks hurt when you read my longer posts? Yep, attacking myself for fun/images/icons/tongue.gif). Not only that, it's part of greed for me, I guess just having it in my hands. Hence my binders full of VF3 and VF3tb information, organized for my convenience and ready to be read wherever I am. Anyways, enough about that... Just keep in mind that many speculators on the popularity of online books have been proven wrong (to this day, the future may change). Hardcopies are still popular as ever. Okay, so where does this lead to... Not every gamer goes on the internet. Not every gamer that goes on the internet reads the faqs or movelists that are available to them. The information that kicks the living crap out of Prima and BradyGames and the like. However, much of the information comes from two things regarding VF... 1)Most important, Japanese resources. 2)Experience from gamers.
