It wasn't just up to Jon. There's the record label, distributers, etc. It wouldn't have been possible to release the album in May, any way you look at it. Sure, they could have just put it out digitally when no one but the hardcore fans like the people that post here will care about it. But why would they? Delay it, do it properly when it can be properly promoted and the record is given a chance. Don't be so short sighted to think that it was just up to Jon and that it was a decision made purely for money...

However, the record label is a busness, as is Bon Jovi, and they will have both invested a lot of money into this release. They have worked hard on the songs, the production, the packaging, etc. Of course they want to make that money back. Who wouldn't. It's their living at the end of the day.
