Now i know that at least one person has their copy already and the picture they proved it with shows a pretty standard PC game box but i was reading IGN today and their offices finally got the game and were talking about it. You can read the little update here. http://pc.ign.com/articles/534/534862p1.html Anyway, this part struck me as odd but in a good way. "The first thing that drew our attention to the game (apart from the picture of Bea Arthur on the cover), was the interesting packaging. While some publishers are opting to switch from the mini-box to a DVD-style packaging, the gang at Activision have decided to publish their game in a massive 240-page book format. Not only does this make you look smarter when you buy it but it also gives you something to read while the game installs." Is this some collectors edition or is the release going to be like this? Could this be why the game is like $5 more expensive? I'm just curious cause it definately sounds like some collectors edition with art work and what not. Who knows?...

Wow. I think it willl be released like that. Which isn't bad I need something to read when I go poop. And the collectors edition will have more stuff I believe like a poster and some other goodies.

Oh yeah.... you know i see how much Japanese releases get all these extras and we always get these barebone horribly covered pieces of crap releases. It's nice to see them take time out and make it look great even before popping the game in for install.

I am not sure. Maybe it is the latest book in the series of Doom novels which were recently so aggressivley sought after by many gamers (and non-gamers :naughty: ).

They sure make it seem like this is what consumers will buy. If so then i wonder why the other guy got a standard version. Maybe he did himself a disservice for not waiting?

Oh actually the guy i am talking about having the game already was on the IGN boards. For some reason i thought the thread was here but it's not. Sorry if it was confusing.

LOOK AT THE PICTURES! They have the strategy guide for christ's sake! They have fooled everyone, and I don't understand how. Read the article, they got the strategy guide in and are making fun of all us who are on the edge waiting for this game!
