    Logical I guess, but still doesn't feel right.

    To me, one of the highlights of a product like that is that you have the game itself sitting amidst it all. I don't actually own any special edition/collector's edition games, but I do own a few music CDs of a similar ilk (partly because they cost £15, not £75).

    Would I buy the CD, in its normal packaging, and then sit a box alongside it with all the extra gubbins? No, don't think so.

    Surely they could of given you a download code to get around the "waiting for delivery of a big slow box" and then a physical copy with the collectors box.

    $100 for that?

    Strange, I thought it was still March, but April must have arrived early this year.

    Or are they actually serious.

    I can see the practical benefits ...sort of. But if they do it this way, then they'd better a) make a dedicated space in the box for the game and b) sell it substantially cheaper. Considering they probably want about $50 for the game itself this box should not sell for much more, if that.

    Apart from that I concur with Dooms. However, I bet they wouldn't do that because you could just sell on your physical copy once you've gotten the download code.

    EDIT: Just noticed the box contains a Steelbook case, but apparently that's not to keep your game disc. Go figure.
