If its CE i hate you SO MUCH RIGHT NOW. I got to pick it up at work and its AMAZING. Just the actual feel of a proper PC Collectors Edition in years made me happy let alone knowing we have all of our pre orders + some extras(not many AT ALL) is making me even more anxious to just leave with one and not play it till release day lol.

I WANT THIS GAME SO BAD. 4 more dayssssssssssss

There's a reason that Starcraft is the best selling game and a reason that it is called Limited Collector's Edition. So in other words, you probably won't find it.

So what you're saying is if you have a collectors edition reserved hold onto it for 3 or 4 months and sell it for $300-400 and buy a regular edition for yourself to play on? That's what I've been thinking about doing. :laugh:

you could just register the key to an australian/asian account and download the client , from what i understand the keys can be registered to any region its the account/client that needs to be the same. if they dont match you wont be able to login.

Thanks for organizing all of that information, Anaron :).

I'm getting more and more excited for this game now. I have my pre-order with Future Shop, so hopefully it doesn't take too long to reach my hands (I've already accepted the fact that I probably won't get it on the 27th). I plan on making August the month of Starcraft II, since I have to go back to the University in September. I even plan on making this the first game on my Macbook Pro. I've been good at not installing games on it, since it's my work machine, but this is just too tempting.

350? That's a little high for Koreans. Maybe 200-300. :p

200-300 is their average, so... :D

Thanks for the link, happylemon. I'm glad they added those challenge missions. I can't wait to master microing. I don't even know all the hotkeys by heart (yes, shame on me).

WHAT. THEY SHOULD COME NATURAL OH YOUNG ONE.

And you call yourself a gold player, n00b.

Haha jk, it came naturally to me since ive hotkeyed first SC, both AOE and expansions, etc.

Oh, so today we got our total shipment in, blizzard/coporate went so far to only ship as many reserved as possible. NO EXTRAS AT ALL. We were expecting some since 9 people got in on the pre order before it left the system and we got exactly 9 copies. Funny thing, its 6 per boxes, put in landscape and yeah, they bothered to take 3 out and pack the hell out of it with packing bubbles or whatever you want call them and yeah, i was very surprised they did that, as was my boss because usually they just ship the quantities instead of having to break open a box. ALL the stores only got as many reserved.

Funny thing sales are final and 48 hour policy will be held strong. If you dont pick up / call for your collectors in 48 hours, its fair game. Seeing this, im picking up a collector as soon as it becomes available. I got mine on pre order and then another one just to hold it as a collectors item, or sell it later.

But, to comment on the Collectors Edition Box, its AMAZING. A TRUE PC Collectors Edition. Its Nice and Big, Heavy, Strong. Doesnt feel like cheap cardboard. I like it. Cant wait to open it up tuesday morning.

I just wish the collector's edition would include some nice figurine to put in my office.

Also, the lame WoW pet means nothing to me... I don't even play WoW.

+1

Yeah that WoW tie-in is stupid. I don't play WoW.

I remember when I bought War3, I got a free figurine with the game and I didn't even have to buy the collector's edition.

2 CE's pre-ordered since May. Picking up on midnight. Thoroughly stoked.

Wish there was a way to sell the WoW pet thing...

Yeah that's one thing about it.. there isn't something I can put my hands on in real life.. lol.. I guess I made the right choice, saved some money and went for the Standard Edition.

I thought the 176 page art book should be pretty sweet. I'd pay $20 just for that.
