    Updated my main post. EA have updated their page to say standard editions will get the Warfare pack, though no word on whether or not we'll get it with the N7 edition (as I read it on the GAME site it was an exclusive, listed separate from the N7 edition contents).

    Some new retailers have been added, but as far as I can tell the N7 edition is no longer available.

    @Sky I just checked Play.com we are getting the War pack.

    Mass Effect 3: N7 Collectors Edition (With Pre-Order Bonus N7 Warfare Gear Pack Download)

    Awesome, cheers. I dunno how I missed that one.

    I just looked at EA's MASS EFFECT 3 UK AND IRELAND LAUNCH UPDATE page. Play.com is now sold out. But you can some how still place orders :S

    @Sky also here look.

    Pre-order Mass Effect 3 from Play.com and receive a code to download the N7 Warfare Gear Pack
    Take Earth back with the exclusive N7 Warfare Gear, which includes the N7 Defender Armour, N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle. Shrug off enemy fire with the N7 Defender Armour and its amplified shields then drop the opposition with high calibre fire from the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle.
    N7 Rifle: Deliver two rounds per shot with deadly accuracy. Stop the opposition dead in their tracks with superior high calibre rounds.
    N7 Defender Armour: Improved shields and health. Survive even the most punishing of battles and withstand sustained enemy fire.
    Pre-order bonus also includes the previously advertised M-55 Argus Rifle download:
    M-55 Argus Rifle: A high-powered rifle favored by senior C-Sec officers. An excellent close-range weapon, its bursts of fire ensure ammunition conservation during lengthy conflicts. Other law-enforcement agencies across the galaxy are adopting the Argus as their standard rifle, as much for its intimidation factor as its suppression power.

    Please Note: Customers who have already pre-ordered Mass Effect 3 will receive an upgrade to the N7 Warfare Gear Pack at no extra charge.
    Please be aware that bonus offer download codes are only available to customers purchasing directly from Play.com - we cannot supply you with download codes if you purchase through PlayTrade

    Exclusive Hardcover Artbook
    Exclusive Collectible tin featuring male and female Shepard
    Exclusive Bonus In-Game Packs
    Exclusive N7 Fabric Patch

    I think the easy solution is to pre-order (and pre-load) from origin, digital edition means that on the previous day you pre-load and on the midnight you begin playing!!!! no having to wait an hour longer, no worries that there will not be enough copies to go around...

    I can't speak for everyone else, but when it comes to collectors editions, if I'm going to fork out the extra money I want to fork it out on a physical copy. Yes, you get most of the same stuff in both versions, but to me getting the physical art book, the special steelbook, and any little extras which come with it like the N7 patch, etc etc, make it feel like I've actually spent that extra money on something worthwhile.

    A digital collectors edition isn't really worth it in my opinion, and I'll only get the digital version in cases where the only extras you get with a CE is DLC and nothing extra physically.

    Oh, and @fullmetal5550:
    GAME is basically our UK equivalent of GameStop, or EB aye. I don't think they're owned by the same people though.

    You want a physical copy of the artbook go print it in glossy fine paper and bind it almost the same thing without the extra wait time...

    All is fair in love and war.

    Been searching for the CE edition,, and have now put a Notify on Amazon, as It seems everywhere is out of Pre-Orders on the CE.
    So, I may just get the SE and then get the CE when It's out again.
    Thanks Game.com

    Just found out that, EA pulled the plug a couple of days ago on Game.
    Game ordered more units than EA liked, even though Game had the
    order list to show for the amounts.
    EA have also pulled 2 other up and coming games releases from Game.

    No, it's not remotely the same.

    Besides, most retailers will ship a game days in advance of the release, so it arrives up to a couple of days early, or the morning of the day of release.

    In other words there's little to no extra wait at all.

    In fact, sometimes we'll get our retail versions and be able to open them up and get what's inside before DDE's allow access to their content.

    Same or not there is a wait when I can play (and not only I) from the midnight before and some of the retailers's shipped copies arrive at down of the release day earliest if they have any left...

    Whatever rocks your boat though...

    I read somewhere and it might not be true that since EA is fast becoming the largest publisher on the gaming world it will slowly cut out everyone else and sell only through origin eventually maybe through amazon and the likes....
