Take my Money!!!

Postby [FnG] Unholy Eve » Tue Mar 13, 2012 11:12 pm

April 10th everyone, time to find all that "loose" change we've been collecting for the past few years.

https://buy.guildwars2.com/collectors-edition

Collectors Edition has the small price tag of £130 and all I can say is GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME

When you buy the pre-release, you will be guaranteed access to the beta-events. So that's the earliest access to the game you can get. :D Some say (especially ArenaNet themselves) that the first beta event is planned for this month, so how soon do you want to play? ASAP I reckon :P

Call me cheap but £49.99 for a digital standard version seems pretty damn steep to me.

The normal boxed (without beta access mind you) is on amazon at £42 but still no release date.

I've got too much on my plate to be bothered about Beta at this point and am minded to wait to see if the price comes down to something reasonable
after release.

Hanno I was thinking the exact same thing, £50 is damn expensive for a standard game and its a digital download as well.
I'm not overly fussed about the beta after all we've waited this long to play it.
But £50 that's the price of a CE for the majority of other games, heck you can import a game for cheaper than that.
Cheapest Pre-purchase I've seen is play.com at £39.99 and the cheapest over all has been Game/Gamestation at £35, but with the administrators taking over I don't have the faith to place an order with them at this time (even with a small discount through the reward card)
Actually after writing all of this £50 isn't that expensive considering how long we'll all be playing it for.

It's worth bearing in mind that you're not only paying for the game, but future maintenance on the online servers you'll be using. As everyone is aware, running a server farm is really expensive. :D

Honestly, 50 quid is amazingly reasonable for an online-only game with no monthly fee.

£50 isnt a lot but on the otherhand most games drop by £10 a fortnight after release, so it feels a bit of a waste/con when they charge that extra.

Also trying to save to be able to afford to move house. £50 may not be a lot when spending £250K but saving pennies makes pounds.

I'm with you on that, Yasmin. I'll pre-order (maybe) when they give me a release date.

(Or when I stop getting hit by impossibly large bills. :gripe: I wrote nearly $6,500 in unexpected bills last month, and just under $20,000 when I included the expected ones. So much for my savings.)

Bought, account created and linked up :D

The client being available "shortly" is promising.

Their Beta FAQ specifically mentions a pre-purchase event before the end of April, which is likely what "shortly" means. :)
