    https://buy.guildwars2.com/ Nice and easy to see what you get for each. Imo deluxe edition is very nice unless you want all those gorgeous books/soundtracks etc.

    And sys req.:

    • Windows® XP Service Pack 2 or better

    • Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, Core i3, AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 or better

    • NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800, ATI Radeon™ X1800, Intel HD 3000 or better (256MB of video RAM and shader model 3.0 or better)

    • 25 GB available HDD space

    • Broadband Internet connection

    • Keyboard and mouse

    * Due to potential changes, system requirements may change over time, and you may be required to upgrade your current system (or obtain a new system) to continue to play the game.

    Not so bad. I'm so exicted for some reason XP Now I know we will see gW2 before summer vacations.

    Digital Delux it is.

    Grim Dawn, the next great action rpg!

    Looks really nice and I'm looking forward to GW2, but Star Wars was the final straw for me. Never pre-ordering an MMO again.

    When you buy the CE just as with all the other MMOS that have done this, you will get a code. This code will allow you to get your three days of Headstart.

    For people that complain and criticise the other MMOs that have done this, they sure don't know much about the process at all. 

    The game was said to launch in September. So between April and September should be quite a few events. Still...it is rather early to have a Pre-Order. Didn't SWTOR start a month or two before the launch? Can't recall...

    That's a nice looking CE. Grats to everyone who adds it to their collection.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    I always get the regular digital so i have no issue with the crazies that want to shell out $150.

  • KaocanKaocan Atlanta, GAMember Posts: 1,270

    So the $149 CE is the ONLY physical box version they are going to have?

    Actually, I will probably go for the normal digital edition instead of the deluxe. 3 Out of the 5 items from Digital Deluxe are one use or temporary items.

    good thing I dont care for goodies

    Gotta go with the digital edition on april

     

    If you think that you dont have to pay a subscription, this price is fair enough for only one time purchase

    Are they serious with these digital deluxe items?  Mouse over them.  They all read as cash shop items to me and if this is the kind of things we get in the cash shop I am a bit worried.

    The most worrisome thing for me is that they are putting an elite skill into this package.  Skills for money is a slippery slope and that is the exact opposite of what they have said in the past...

    A golem that you can use for 5 days... cash shop rental item.  A chalice that gives you PvP points/glory... cash shop pay 2 get PvP points.  A tome that reads as a cash shop item to boost guilds.  Miniatures bleh whatever for some not for some prob cash shop items all fluff and not a problem.

    WTF are they doing rolling a skill into this.  Why are they giving items and probably putting items into the cash shop that reward you with something that you should naturally get from PvP'ing.  I am more than a little concerned....

    Anyone have the price on the DE and DD versions yet? I sure as hell hope I'm not going to be paying $49 for a digital copy when I used to spend that for a box with a CD.

    The only physical box version you can buy directly from NCsoft, yes.

    Digital Deluxe it is for me :)

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    Go digital, trust me.

  • someforumguysomeforumguy HomeMember Posts: 3,645 Uncommon

    Oh system requirements show that you need 25Gb free harddisk space. That will be a long download lol if the download speed becomes slower due to many downloading it at the same time :)

  • zinger71zinger71 Fort St John, BCMember Posts: 63 Uncommon
    The system requirements are too high for my laptop. I won't be preordering until I get a new rig, if at all. Sucks. Was looking forward to this one.
  • PivotelitePivotelite Hamilton, ONMember Posts: 2,145 Uncommon

    Look what SW:TOR has done, now more fucking companies are going to pump out a ridiculously overpriced CE. I don't feel like paying $50 for a figurine.

     

    Sigh...

    Urgh! Why did they have to add the Rytlock statue in thre CE. Would have been perfect without it. Before the CE would have been a definite purchase but now, with the price tag, I have to consider whether it is worth it. If I manage to see it online for £80/90 then I may gett it.

    Right now my eyes is set on Digital Deluxe, but will properly decide once the pricing on collector edition is revealed.

     

    Faaaa iPad 3rd Gen and GW2 is gonna wipe me clean.

    All are crying about 150 collectors edition, yet you are not forced to buy it, go buy standard.

    Game is B2P, maybe u would like to buy game and than have to pay for sub every month.

    Once again CE is optional not must !!!

    While I personally don't care for most of the items in the collectors edition, I have friends who love the art books and sound tracks for these games. They are also artistic in that way, and love these kinds of things. It's not for everyone, but for some people this the best thing since sliced bread. I still know people who collect figures and treasure them. Is it nerdy? Sure.. but aren't we all? In our own way.. yes.

  • fansedefansede Raleigh, NCMember Posts: 960 Uncommon

    GW2 coming soon! So when do you all think it will release based on this? June?

    I am pretty sure that figurine costs more than 50 bucks.
