... that the behind the Scennes extra DVD on CE will be just the Making of a realm videos we got to see in youtube.

I really hope I'm wrong but was wondering if anyone knows anything about it...

I look at those as more "preview" clips of the DVD. I think the DVD will be a much longer documentary from which those scenes were pulled. So in short, more of those videos all in one feature.

2) Character Choices

3) In Pursuit of Real Monsters

But overall, is there a lot more information than presented on the youtube vidoes, moderate or just a bit more?

There are 10 in total. The ones I have seen on Youtube are identical to the ones provided so far on the Making of DVD. Sorry nothing new yet...perhaps there are easter eggs hidden though :)

LMAO...can't believe NA is being forced to pay $25 extra for this. I was already dissing most of the CE items we get, and now one of them turns out to be something we can get for free off youtube.

I got a feeling...

I remember a few of us speculating that the Making of a Realm vids were probably the behind the scenes DVD...we got yelled at = P
But yea, I was hoping it wouldn't be "just" those...
I wanted the other stuff in the CE as well so I'm good...mainly the security token...

I'll love the map and the journal, the token will probably be useful and the tumbler I don't really know but since my PC will probably only arrive on the 30th I was looking foward to watch something new in the meantime....

The DVD was something i thought was cool, along with the other stuff. But my main purpose for ordering the CE was the security token and 8 day head start.

The fact that the EU and JP players didn't just get a Tumbler, they got a map too, and all we get is a pathetic personalized Rite of Passage frustrates me to no end. I'll probably be importing the JP version to rectify this situation. Seriously, I understand all the "NA always get everything" hate, because usually EU gets screwed, but we're paying more or less the same price, and losing out on arguably the two most substantial and unique (physical) items.

CE in the US is $75, right? Well, here in Switzerland it's $100. Because, as you said, EU gets screwed over usually.

Same for the monthly fees, for you in the US it's $12.99, here in europe it's $16.90

So, are you still frustrated...?

I thought that way for like a day. Until I remembered I'm not paranoid and I'm certainly not paying $25 for 8 days worth of game time. I really don't see why I would need a headstart. It's a video game, not a race.

I think it really just boils down to some people are incredibly impatient. No idea why I'm typing this out, nobody will care.. but oh well, sue me.
