    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...

    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...

    Like I said, more often than not it'll arrive the day before, so if I wanted to play it at midnight I could. Then again, some of us like to sleep and then have jobs/work to do, and thus don't get the opportunity to play until later in the day anyway.

    Sky is right. But one thing I wont EVER do. Is go to a midnight release of any game even if I did pre order it. Am not mental and the only people that do that in my books are idiots. Al be happy if it arrives before the release date here. But then I wont be if EA has one of those lovely you canie play it now blocks like another game I had. I forget the name.

    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.

    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....

    Sounds about right,, I have read that in a couple of places to.


    Amazon is fine as you get the Hard copy. But just Origin and Steam, not so good. There is also the fact that there are still millions on slow BB, I bet you could take 3o% off the ME3 buyers if it was just download only.

    I went to go re check the price on amazon for the ME3CEPCV cause I thought it costed more than game and play.com But it dose not show the price.

    note: this is not all game shops, just the UK branch of game as i have confirmed game shops here in Aus WILL still get 100% of their pre ordered stock for release.

    as for midnight release i agree they are dumb. onyl good one i been to is for my local shop (ausgames) who are franchise run not a corperation. for most fps games they bring in a few pc/xboxs and link them into a pre release demo/tourny and come 11pm they packed up EVERYONE who preordered must pay come 11 if they want to collect and at 12 release its bang bang bang straight line delivery of goods. so much faster than EB who are 10 stores up who open at 12am and start charging the remaining of preorder as they go.

    most release nights i am at home and asleep/installing at 12:45-1am based on drive home.

    Amazon is sold of the collectors edition, that is why no prices show up. It's also sold out of Gamestop here in the U.S. I think actual physical copy is sold out pretty much everywhere. I ordered mine from Amazon last year and I'm getting it the day it's released. I also have the Origin digital deluxe edition so I might sell my physical copy on Ebay. Not sure yet.

    EA is the anti-Midas touch company. Everything they touch turns to garbage.
