Oh I see.  The differences are:

1. Mega includes "PlayerBase".
2. In Mega, 70,000 of the games are "annotated".

What is the value of a "PlayerBase"? The pictures which anybody can find online?
70.000 out of 6.8M games are annotated. That is 1% and they don't mention of course that most of the annotations are horribly outdated. Any analysis older than 3 years can be improved by the current top engines.

Both 'Mega Database' and 'Big Database' say they have 6.8 million games.
So why is Mega triple the cost of Big?

(Mega 2008 claims 3.8 million games.)
