Even though I planned to buy a CE,  I am discouraged by their design. I don't want to pay for the silly figurine. I also dislike the deluxe edition: The only interesting "banker" is just for 5 days...

So my choice is basic.

What is yours?

    Probably the DE. Regardless the perks I've never cared much for those sort of things.

    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    I've seen the CE price, are there prices on the other editions yet?

    I'm more jazzed for GW2 than I have been for any game in many years, but it's the regular digital edition for me. I don't want all the physical CE stuff (got enough stuff in my house without adding statues and books and art prints and what have you); and the Digital Deluxe add-ons are underwhelming for what I believe is an extra $20.

    You forgot one thing: Physical copy.

    I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
    And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
    Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
    And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

    i think i will stay with standard edition... I got deluxe edition of Swtor and i never used the perks it came with (only the mount) so i dont want to end up the same thing in GW2 and still pay extra for being deluxe....

    yeah i think standard edition will do just fine.

    edit: standard physical copy if it grants beta access as soon as the digital version does

    The Box. I hate Digital because of the hassle you have to go through to get it back if you lose it...

     

  • ariboersmaariboersma Yankton, SDPosts: 1,802Member

    yea you should have added the normal box for those preordering from stores and such. People DO still do that =P However I am grabbing the deluxe digital, hubby grabby the regular digital.

    Digital Collector's Edition for myself. I'm strongly considering grabbing a Physical CE as a short term investment and as a hedge against me deciding I really have to have it for myself after all. :)

    Well, given that we know nothing about the physic standard copy right now, it is meanless to put it in at the moment... You know, it may cost more and may do not grant beta access.

    After seeing the price for the physical CE, I've lost all interest in GW2.

     

    I have a feeling that if Bioware hadn't sold ALL of the SWTOR physical CEs for $150, ArenaNet wouldn't be charging that much.  They're charging that much because they know people will pay for it.  Not because its actually worth $150.

     

     

    Seriously, I was excited for GW2.  Not so much anymore.  I pre-ordered GW2 two years ago from GameStop when GameStop's "estimated release date" was November 2011.  I was planning on dropping 80-90 bucks for the physical CE (that seems like a reasonable price)....

    ....but now, after seeing the ludicrous price for the physical CE, I don't think I'm even going to buy a standard edition of the game.  Seriously, fuck them.

    Stop whining it's really not that big of a deal.  If you were going to drop 80-90 on a CE then why not go 60 for the regular game, knew it would be at least that much anyway.  Considering there's no sub fee there's no reason to whine about the prices.  If it meant that much to you before the fact that the 150$ for CE bugs you is quite remarkable.  

     

    Well, at least I cant wait for the game.  Gotta go Box edition though, digital copy is a hassle and what does 3 physical days really mean in terms of how much time i'm going to put into this game (assuming box doesnt come with head start)

    the collectors edition is made for collectors. That is another word for people with too much money who like junk.

    Since you don't sound like one of them I don't see why you get upset. If people want a charr statuette and the rest of the junk let them.

    I will get a DE myself.

  • Sector13Sector13 New Providence, PAPosts: 687Member

    CE is only good if you want the Statue

    DD is a waste of money for 20 extra bucks since over half of the stuff is temp.

    Definately going DE.

  • dougmysticeydougmysticey Pflugerville, TXPosts: 1,176Member

    Most likely the DE. It has everything I need to fully enjoy the game.

    Collector's Ed. for me. I have to have that Rytlock figure.

    Any of you claiming that digital versions are a hassle need to clarify. What exactly is a hassle about them? That you have to click a download link on your account page?  I haven't purchased a physical PC game for 5-6 years now, and haven't had an issue with anything. Reinstall? Click link and download. New computer? Click link and download. 

    Just sayin.

  • Flex1Flex1 Cabo RojoPosts: 407Member

    Digital Deluxe.

    Yes $20 for mostly temp items but I do get a(I hope) unique elite skill and unique minipet.

    @Mavek and @Loke666

     

    You guys are right, of course.  I'm just pissed because I was planning on buying the CE, up until they released the price for it.

     

    I don't know why, but I was shocked when I saw that price tag.

     

    I'll get over it.

    I'll be picking up this thing, called a box, at a store, which contains a disc, which contains the code for the game, which you can download on your PC and play. Damn kids and their fancy bandwidth!

    Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2,
    ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,
    Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...

  • EliandalEliandal Chelmsford, ONPosts: 796Member

      I'll be ordering my usual CE through Amazon.  Depending on shipping times, I may get a regular digital edition just in case (I live in an out of the way place...WAY out of the way)

  • SunthasSunthas Boise, IDPosts: 27Member

    none of the above...

    going to blow my xmas best buy giftcard on the physical game and hope it gets me some preorder/prepurchase perks. 

  • starstar Seattle, WAPosts: 1,101Member
    The CE. The art prints make it an Insta-buy for me.

    Only select retailers will let you prepurchase the game and get the Beta Weekend access and the three day headstart, though every preorder will get a 1 day headstart.

    I assume Bestbuy will be one of them but you might want to hold off on purchasing if you really want the headstart and BW access.
