But long waits don't hurt new IPs as much as the ridiculously early announcements. The way they announce these games is like going to a restaurant and you see steak on the menu, so you ask for the steak. BUT what they don't tell you is they still have to grow the grass to feed the cow to give birth to the cow that they have to slaughter to get your steak. All the while you're waiting at the dinner table. Eventually you'll lose interest if you don't starve waiting.

If you aren't the first to introduce something to the gaming world, you better be the 2nd, otherwise just think of something else.

By the time you release your version of what is "hot" it won't be "hot " anymore and you will have just made a watered down version of what everybody originally loved.

People wait to long and the market for that genre isn't there any more.

That is why people love new, interesting, creative IP's, because no matter what, it's almost always something people can't get anywhere else.
