What is the difference between the Europe version and the US version?

Which do you mean, the retail boxes, or the actual game?

The boxart is different for both, and the game discs have a slightly different .exe for the regions. Apart from that, they're the same.

Oh sorry, I mean what is the difference for the log-in server, square enix account, payment, etc. Also, do I really need a security token in order to play the game? I could not log into the game.... I got the europe version, thats why im asking... thanks for the help~

The difference is that you will set up a Square Enix account depending on your region - so NA for USA, EU for all PAL regions, and JP for...well, Japan. This also counts for your payment. You must, therefore, register and play using an account under the European Square Enix site if you are part of the areas which it comes under.

Log-in, servers, and updates are universal around the world.

A security token is recommended but not needed to log in. It provides security in case someone hacks your password, since they'll then need your token code to log-in to your account or to play.

I took pics of both my CE boxes, EU is on the left NA is on the right. Another difference (and I'm assuiming the game case inside the boxes is the standard retail case) is that the art for the EU cover is alot nicer, it's kinda like how they changed Nier for the NA crowd IMO... Sadly I much prefer the EU cover, but I didn't take pics of both side by side and I'm too lazy to dig out the boxes.

*EDIT*

I also apparantly didn't read through the whole thread before uploading pics and such when you clarified your request... oops
