    Meh, no real use in buying a "collectors edition", but limiting it to some countries only is like begging for cross-shipping, and then whining about it.

    Yeah.

    No.

    That's retarded. It doesn't affect me, but that decision is retarded.

    Perhaps its because most people aren't interested in buying a game with a marked up price just because its in a fancy box?

    Greetings!
    Problem is most of us (non-UKers) order from UKs online retail shops, even with the added cost of shipping games are 10-20€ cheaper than retail stores in Euroland. Steam was a valid alternative before the $1=1€ policy.

    I like Collector's Editions but, since I buy them nearly compulsively (I'm a hoarder and I love shiny trinkets), I'm always glad when I hear a game isn't actually getting one... means that I'll be saving myself some money.

    I know, I've done so myself. UK versions are usually cheaper AND uncut :D
    But people that shell out for the "collectors box" don't care about the price, right?

    Oh, yeah. You guys in Germany also have the censorship to worry.
    Seeing how many ordered the CE of Starcraft from UK, I would say a lot still care about the price.

    I wouldn't have bought it anyway but I think it is pretty dumb not to let us have the choice.
