I have customers that try stunts like that all the time. They ask for a price quote for 50,000 units and then at the last minute they share that it's only 15,000units. I guess I could hold the same price per unit to get them to order "NOW" (analogus to agreeing to an additional year just to get the player to sign) but that just doesn't make sense because it would kill the value (ie. profit) of the deal.
Just as you shouldn't give a high volume price for a low volume job, you shouldn't tack on an additional year to "get them to sign" when the chances are the production and value return will not the worth it in the 3rd year. That waters down the value of the whole deal.
These contracts going out are simply amazing. Amazingly stupid in some cases.

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
