whats the point of special "digital" editions, when you know full well that the comic book and art book will appear on the internet the next day.

to be honest, its already on the web, its actually also available where ever you buy stores.

the point of digital editions, as with any other game now. You get it so you do not have to leave your house, you get it at midnight, you dont want to use a disk, etc. Oh and you get the special editions in game items.

The digital special editions is a joke. It is ten extra bucks for a couple in game items to start off with but so basically no extra content and the rest will be on youtube or something else. At least with DAO you got an extra dungeon.

This game looks like it will be good but don't get suckered into the digital deluxe edition.

i would never buy a digital edition, i am just surprised so many people are buying it, i mean it's surpassing the normal version.

Beleive it or not, it's kinda difficult to get a PC game where i live IN MONTREAL! My Ebgame don't stock them anymore, even MicroPlay don't have them, Futureshop have a very limited selection (they had like 9 copies of MW2 at launch for PC, 9!!!). So why waste going and try to find a game and loose all the day (actulally happened to me several times) when you can download it legally and play it within 1-2 hours..

Yeah, EB games really really is annoying me as they are sidelining PC games more and more. Use to have a wall and now we have this rickety shevling thing packed with games older than sin and not even good old games, but the ones noone ever wants.

after looking at a video, i am even more determined to not get the special addition.

it appears that in this game you will now be able to fully customize the look of the armor you are wearing, so no more having amazing armor that looks like horse shit.
