I pre-ordered this from Great Britain because you can only get the super collectors edition wooden box thing from Europe. It only costs me about 10 bucks to ship here.

Sweet! I am totally ordering this. :)

Edit: Maybe this is a stupid question but do region codes on DVDs matter with games? And will the game be formatted differently for UK than North America?

Well it seems the UK collector's edition has pros and cons. The game disc will likely work however the DVD will be PAL formatted for Region 2 players. I am not sure I want to fork out the extra cash for something I might not even be able to use or have any resale value. Hm... on the fence. I wish we had the collector's editions or pre-order perks here. In the USA if you preoder from Gamestop (i think) you get some extra levels in the game as well as the fold out map and maybe other goodies too.
