Seems to be early posting, as one cannot actually make an order.

Yea i just saw that a little while ago too. Just scoping things out though... I'm not ordering until release. I would imagine they are just getting it setup like your saying. I havn't seen it for order in the USA until just a few hours ago. (And i've been checking like everyday, i have an obsession lol)

It's listed as $89.95 Australian to download. That is unusual as the Aussie dollar is at .99c to the US at the moment.

When I first saw it, I thought I could not order it.
A few min later, after I first posted, I could order it (!).

Seems like they are updating it now. :)

I guess shipping those bits to Australia cost more? ;)

Hell, for that big a price difference, send me $70 I send you the box and make a little on side ;) :P


I see you have the box icon up! Not so for US.

I think the 89.95 is for download version only. Not sure about the boxed one.
No free game for antipodeans either!

Its early days yet,we still have 2 months to go.I'm hoping some more sites will offer it for pre order.
For example,Amazon.De have it,but English Amazon do not!

The download is tempting,to get it on the day of release,rather than waiting for it to come in the mail.
I assume it could be backed up on a disc?

I assume it could be. Otherwise it doesn't seem fair... I mean what if my HDD craps out and i lose everything and end up having to reorder or something. I'll be attempting this first thing when i get my copy.

I was actually considering buying the download version but then it hit me. I will get the game much faster by just walking down to my local gameshop instead of downloading God knows how many GB;s on my 8 Mb/s DSL LOL!

I hope they are still in the preparation process, otherwise it would mean we will have very different prices in different parts of the globe

Well has it been confirmed that Scandinavia will be getting boxed versions of the game? All i know is that here in the US it is Direct Download only thus far as well as many other places... unless i'm missing something.

Well yeah, it has popped up on a couple of Finnish web retailers but I haven't seen anything on the Swedish webshops. I'm pretty certain there's a bigger fanbase here in Finland than in Sweden so I'm not all that sure it will be released there.

Weird...the Collector's Edition is only about 80AUD in the UK (50GBP), never mind the download version. You guys really get a raw deal on games.

Of course they're not still in the preparation process, guys. It's called price differentiation (or price discrimination if you don't want to use the corporate euphemism). You charge as much as you think you can get away with to each group of people. Why do you think the Ubi shop isn't a worldwide one for downloads? There's no reason for it not to be other than to change the prices.

It's still early days, but i'm itching to see how this thing goes never the less. I live in Greece, so i'm redirected to the UK portion of the ubi shop. One there however, i can't see any boxed edition at all, only the download one for 49.99 Euros.

I just hope amazon UK or another UK web retailer will carry it, so i can get a collector's edition before they are out of supply (i don't know German, otherwise i'd order from amazon.de).

I'm in Uruguay and get directed to UK as well.

Guess it should be the US, but UBI begs to differ...

I would be interested in the boxed edition after being involved with the 'game' and community for lots of years also
Not a fan of digital downloads either

I would expect the boxed set to sell for over $100 AUD, although hopefully one of the retailers will release a special version like they did with Napoleon: Total War, which came with the statue figure of Napoleon on horseback. Maybe a replica model Spitfire would be nice.:grin:
