From the offical battle.net page:
I'd like to see some type of discount for purchasing a digital copy. It certainly should be cheaper than a boxed version at a store.
The only problem that I have with this is that we are stuck choosing between having the download sooner & playing right away... OR... We can get the extra goodie from the collector's edition.If we want both benefits then we have to pay twice for the game, rather than being able to get a rebate code or some other similar incentive.
The Collector's Edition is not just the in-game pet. There are other physical goodies included in the Collector's Edition.
So it says PST on all of these, does that mean that those of us in the EST time zone have to wait until 3:01 A.M local before I can play?What if I drive to a midnight release? Still 3 A.M?
I wonder if this will work. I've already pre-ordered my collector's edition but my wife doesn't care and is just going to do the digital pre-sale and be ready to go at midnight. Can I log in to her account from my computer to start it downloading all the cataclysm stuff and then just play with that downloaded/installed client once I upgrade my account with my CE serial?Not that it will get here until the next day or so, but saving time installing is always welcome :)
I'm just hoping that we are able to preload it even if we don't pre-order though them for those of us that want to still go and get the collector's edition
I don't know why everyone is hell-bent on playing the moment the game goes live on the servers. It's gonna be Lag City, and everything will be buggy and generally not work correctly. I'll probably still order mine and download it ahead of time, but it'll only be because I can and because I'm not interested in the CE. I'll get around to playing it probably on the evening of the 8th anyhow, and I'm already expecting a bumpy ride that night too.
Will the collector's Ed be the same price? What is the in-game pet anyway? I'm thinking about just buying it locally then, if we're gonna get screwed out of stuff.
Just bought mine. 39.99$ US
Makes it cheaper for the Aussies, retails here for about $59.99 AUD, but with the AUD so close to the USD, could be looking at saving almost $20 bucks over the hardcopy. Does anyone know how large the download will be? as I'm on a 25GB capped plan so too much extra could send it over.
Just got this. Should make it SO easy to get wow now.
