Wow - that box art is really bad, especially considering the original's excellent box art.

The catch is that we don't know much of the game, so you will be trusting them blindly.

I must express my astonishment that in the list of territories the U.S. is not mentioned.

Especially since the U.S. gets things first, usually, and according to my rather cynical "rule" I invented many years ago like this : "bigger, better, first".

By the way, that guy reminds me of Duncan from the pictures … Is this sort of a prequel ? Or something entirely new ?

If you go to the website and click on the pre-order button (twice on different page) you get a list of stores for North-America only (EA store, Gamestop and EBGames). People on the forum probably asked about the rest of the world.

DA2 isn't a prequel, it's not a sequel either. It's a totally new game in the "same" world as the first game. Actually, I would say it's a totally new type of game in the same world with all the changes they made…In a way, if you liked Mass Effect you are probably going to love DA2…

Am I reading this right? If you want the full game on launch day, you have to pre-order it the latest 2 months in advance. Otherwise, you'll have to pay 20€ extra on launch day.

If I read it right then this is just a load of crap and I'll definitely save my money to get The Witcher 2 first.

- If at first you don't succeed… try, try again.

A worrying development IMHO. Pushing a time-limited pre-order suggests to me they're not as confident in the long term fans reaction to the game.

I see it more as bolstering both Q4 outlook and locking in Q1 revenues …

I would never pre-order another Bioware game, I was burned bad on ME2. They can offer anything but I won't be pre-ordering.

If I understand the FAQ correctly the signature edition is a free upgrade to those who preorder before a certain date. Why then in the UK are retailers listing it as a separate edition that is £5 more than the regular one?

Because they hope you will spend the extra $$ rather than taking advantage of the free upgrade?

Just pre-ordered the pc version from verkkokauppa.com, since I was going to get the game anyway. Not a bad deal for 36,40e.
