    Have I missed something or have you just posted the same link twice?

    Re: What's the catch?

    Different links.

    Different pages.

    Look at URL if you don't believe me.

    Or at price.

    One of them is a discount from £19.99, the other just starts at £9.99.

    I'm still trying to figure it out myself.

    Correction: They are the same page.. give me a minute and I'll correct it...

    EDIT: Links are now pointing to the proper things. Try again

    Re: What's the catch?

    After checking play, they have somthing similar but they show them as different versions.

    Ones got the big white band around it (like the platinum thing for playstations, re-released old games cheaper)

    http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/6736...r/Product.html


    Where as one is the normal copy.

    I'd asume at game they just used the same pic for the re-release budget one.

    Re: What's the catch?

    The first link looks like the original release, and even though a price is listed the game is out of stock. The second link is a re-release, and might be a patched up version. Both links have a year of release date too, with the re-release being this year.

    As the game is fairly old now, and if you think you'll like it, I'd look for a gold edition that includes expansion pack. Should be able to find it for less than £20 depending on sites you look at.

    Re: What's the catch?

    They both are coming up as the same price.
    The only difference being the Publisher and the fact that only one seems to be in stock.

    Did I spot all the differences and if so, do I get any special prizes?

    Re: What's the catch?

    Different releases, look at the top left of the front pack picture.

    One is a cd-rom release and the other is a dvd one.

    Re: What's the catch?

    One will be the re-release of it, like a Goty edition of a different publisher

    They will have different SKUs so show up on the site as seperate entries, and cd/dvd differences, and release date differences....
