Default WHY? WHY in double?

For teasing and pre purchase F14 :


Why the same video on Wags youtube channel?


Why the same video on ED youtube channel?


Why the same video on heatblur youtube channel?




Why a pre purchase on ED site?


Why a pre purchase on heatblur site?


What is the difference between the two sites?

Q1-3 : More people see video = More people buy it.

Q4-6 : No real difference except I suspect Heatblur get commision for every sale via their website, you pay through Heatblur store and get a coupon code you use on DCS website.

IIRC Wags said that that's his own channel, he can post whatever he wants (almost, I'd say ).
ED well, you know, DCS is their platform.
Heatblur because they are the devs.


Sales wise, I guess that purchases on Heatblur's site might reduce the size of slice of cake that ED takes on each sale for allowing them to develop on their enviroment and with their SDK.


Too much effort writing your own theory?

It makes sense to post the video on multiple channels. Some people might have subscribed to the DCS channel but not to the Heatblur channel, for example. This ensures that those people will see the video as well. That's a basic aspect of how advertising and marketing works.

Why the same products and advertisement in different shops and malls?
Why the same TV-ads on different channels?
...a really good question!

I think the bigger question is - why does it bother you so much?
