Q
Then what would be the point of spending $50 for a book that regurgitates everything we already know?

I didn't realise you'd read it already and knew everything that was in it.

I expect that it'll be an extremely gussied up and arduously fact-checked summation of everything Fox deems canon at this point.  That's worth $50, is it not?

I didn't, but it seems to be the general opinion around here that the book won't have anything new for fans, that would be disappointing because what made the Aliens RPG book and the Aliens Technical Manual entreat was that it further explore the universe of the Aliens be discussing things the movies were incapable of describing.

At this point, I want the writers of such books to just stick to the established canon facts and stop making dubious shit up that future movies will only ignore anyway.

I don't think that's what this book will be about tbh, not for a $50-$360 price tag.

You're forgetting this is a niche thing. The price was always gonna be higher.

The CE will have an excerpt from Morse's book so I think it's safe to say there will be some bonus material here in some way, shape, or form.

I don't believe the content will change.  Just how it's presented.

I wonder if predxeno would be so mad if this just regurgitated everything we already knew about the comic books...

I would enjoy seeing a predxenomrph version of this book and how it ties in all of the seemingly contradictory EU material with geometric logic.  I imagine it would be quite large.

I would if I had to pay $50 for information already in my head. :-\
