The scoop on a new Design Studio, new carts, and what Provo Craft has come up with lately

The video above will tell you this:

  • the reason that we haven't seen more content from the carts that are coming out is because they aren't finished yet
  • there will be 25 new cartridges in 2009 - 10 of those will be licensed designs. DC Comics will be one of the licensed carts - Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Plasticman, these are all DC Comics & it will be interesting to see what ends up on the cart
  • no sequel to Paper Dolls--sales just don't justify it
  • Mickey Mouse is the best selling cartridge
  • more Sesame Street cart(s), likely no more David Walker carts
  • the new carts viewed at CHA will be out in June

From that same interview (not on tape):

  • new Design Studio updates, as well as a new version of Design Studio (?PRO?); both will block using SCAL (I swear, that's got to be illegal)
  • the Pro version is something separate from what we have now--you'll have to pay for it all over again, but it does have some new, cool features--not sure how they can justify that in this economy, or since they haven't fixed the existing Design Studio, but I have to say it is expected from Provo Craft; and of course you won't be able to use your TTF's with the new version either
