    Is a tad unfair imo.

    A tad unfair is an understatement. I can't see them doing that really, it will just encourage more pirating of the game. Although if it is true, I'll be order the special

    Hope you find some good news out agent

    They might as well have said:

    'Dear Mr White,

    If you don't give us a bit more cash and buy the 'Ultimate Super Ninja' Version of Doom III, then you've got to wait 8 weeks to get the normal version.

    Hahahahaha. I bet you can't wait and pay up! And you don't even know what the deluxe version is yet!

    Yours,

    GamePlay.'

    Still, GamePlay is a top place. Very dodgy that the deluxe version is out that long before the normal, so anyone wanting to play it has to order the expensive version, or wait.

    Well I, (& everyone else for that matter) have waited this long to play it, so I can wait a bit longer. Cynical marketing ploy.
