I asked the question in I believe the last thread whether the TTW playtests are used in marketing decisions or just to let people know, and the answer is both. As an example, Wilson sent out a TTW playtest of Spin Cycle even though it was to be released. They also sent out a TTW playtest of some blue poly which was absolutely horrendous. That's not on the market. Gamma's stringinetti playtest also appears to have been a flop.
Ah ok thanks!
