    I have no use for anything in these special editions but the games themselves and I'm not paying full MSRP for any of them.

    Duke Nukem is an exception :) Just like Starcraft II is an exception. Games which give this much anticipation is just going to be good, whether it be a placebo effect or not xD

    That goes for just about any CE out there. But to be honest, that Duke bust is better than most CE's come with, the History, Legacy & Legend of Duke should be entertaining as it's been 12 years. You got to think of it this way, this game itself is part of gaming history, being it's 12 year creation, Dukes been MIA so long, and he's such an epic character an extra $40 won't break my bank.

    Will do :) Didn't really mean to soil the forums with it, I just got carried away. Any further talk about this will be kept private unless we explicitly can do it here.

    Hope it passes, maybe with some refinement, it doesn't effect me much, but I've helped out some from other countries, sometimes the prices are insane. Anyways....

    Steam also put up Deus Ex: Human Revolution yesterday, just lists August of the date, but thats 2 large titles that went up for pre-order in one day.

    Somehow, both the Duke Nukem and Deus Ex "grandeur" never really had an effect on me. I do have a First Row Ticket for Duke Nukem however (came with Borderlands GOTY pack).

    if they did deus ex right, i am going to love it. it's always been the perfect
    blend of stealth, action, and futuristic technology. here's to hoping they
    didn't screw it up ;)

    Yeah, I probably will Pre-order it, but I don't think I will be able to judge the game till I can actually get some hands on time, so I hope it will be great.

    I used to work for a well known digital music download company as a label manager. I'm sure that there is not that much difference between music downloads & video game downloads to be honest though I could be wrong.

    With music downloads the label or the distributor who owns the copyright for the music will set a price per each worldwide territory and the shop who sells the items do not decide on that price and if they sell it for less they would lose money first of all and secondly lose the contract deal with the distributor ofr underselling... so you can beat Steam up regarding their different prices in different worldwide territories, or you can see the bigger picture which is most likely the large game developing companies (EA etc) dictating the prices that items must be sold at worldwide.

    I'm not beating Steam up, I'm only stating that in certain regions prices are higher than others, and that people in the higher priced regions can always ask someone from the cheaper region to get it for them, saving them money. I'm a consumer, I look at it in a consumer point of view.0With the site I provided people can see if a game they want is significantly cheaper elsewhere, and find a way to pay that price instead of the higher price in their region

    At first I was offering that person to be me to help everyone out, but forgot about the rules of TPU :roll: So it seems people have to find another way, but friends and family are a great way to save you a few bucks

    Eh, I got it, it was cheap, didn't really feel polished like it's competition, but $5 isn't much.
