Yeah, but 4e core wasn't reprinted or revised either. You got errate and a huge amount of updates, but you still needed the same core books until Essentials and Rules Compendium was out (which is a different kind of animal). Still, people played and had fun even with the "buggy" 4e. And then we didn't mention earlier editions.I agree with you partially. While there is no bug free, I think there's a threshold where it becomes worth waiting or not purchasing. A good example is 4e where if you bought the books at launch, they were basically worthless because of too many errors.
