Here's a question Id like answered:
"Will anyone (mainly Gamestop) be offering pre orders for the Collectors edition? Because as of now they dont even know it exists."
So far only places that offer it is Square enix site (which overcharges for shipping) Amazon (which isnt offering day one delivery even if you choose 1 day shipping you get it on the 28th and not the 27th) and EBGames (which is Canada Gamestop). Id rather be able to walk into the store pick it up the morning it comes out and play it (and pay 5 bucks less since theres no shipping) instead of having to wait for it to be delivered the next day or later on during release day.
If you pre-order you get early access, which I'm guessing will be a download on the PS3 or something until you get the disc, and obviously a download for PC. So by going in and picking it up, you miss out on the ~7 day early access, as well as the pre-order items... I wants my mog hat!
