Yes, but in this case (with the iPad), it's only a minority who are getting the game early. As vektsilver said, "the iPad folks don't have a huge install base yet". If it was the other way around, then it would be bad - if there were a large number of iPad buyers who had already bought the game, played it, and began flooding the forums while the PC users where forced to wait around while the stampeed of iPadders began to swarm around them spoiling everything (story, jokes, plot, characters, etc.). But that's not the case, it's only a small number of people who have the privilege of playing this game early, and good for them. They're not spoiling anything for us, so how does them getting the game early actually affect us - the answer is, it doesn't. I say we just suck it up and wait for the 15th.
