Default A hard DVD copy of Divinity 2 :DKS - Where?

November 28th, 2010, 18:10
Hello guys,
do you have any idea where can I buy a hard DVD copy of Divinity 2: Dragon Knights Saga? I looked on the official pages but there was only download version. I know most of you dont care, but I love my game collection on the shelve ;-)

Yes, the same goes for me - a hard copy freak, always have been, maybe try game-co-uk…

At the moment ebay looks mostly to have Xbox versions.

If GoGamer ships to where you are they've got it for $30 on sale right now.

http://www.gogamer.com/Divinity-II—…VVviewprod.htm

It'll be back up to $40 when the sale ends.

This is pretty lame (regarding my DKS preorder which was originally due for release on 11/26/2010) …

Seems like the English PC retail release has indeed entirely been cancelled by the publisher since neither GAME nor Play.com nor Amazon.co.uk are selling the game.

Damn, that sucks. I was holding out for the retail release, too. I wonder what Larian have to say about it?

I've emailed Mastertronic, who are distributing the UK X360 version, to ask whether there will be a PC version. Will post any reply I get here.

Probably Larian decided it this way… so they can generate as many as possible downloads on their own online shop :-)
And I fully support them, but why they do not offer a hard copy along with the download ? Probably too much effort for them..

Sooner or later the game will be published, so the old geeks like us will have to wait some more time.

I may have to give in and get the digital version.

Cool. Thanks for checking, coaster. That is fairly disappointing news. Oh well, no DKS then. Not paying ~€40 for a digital version with limited activations from Larian… for digital I'd pay €15 - €19 max… and not buying the German version because it isn't multilingual. No big deal tho'. I got more than enough unplayed/unfinished games anyway .

No German version? The German Divinity 2 loca was excellent. FoV is a bit weaker but still pretty good.

No, I don't want to play the German version because of the humorous stuff in the game. I mean can you imagine watching a localized Monty Python movie? Not really, right?
Anything humorous usually translates terribly to another language or is completely lost in translation. If I ever get around to acquiring an English version of the game then I want to experience the original script of DKS as it was written by the developers.

You mean you want to play the English version as written by the Belgian developers?

Well, for FOV at least … I can't say. NDA.

But a tiny hint : A few word games in FOV got lost. As far as I know.
On the other hand I must say that I haven't played FOV yet, because I wanted to wait for DKS.

I have only been testing at Larian's.

The English PC version of DKS is apparently available as a boxed version in the BeNeLux. So it physically exists, which makes the decision to not distribute it in the UK strange.

Computer n. A machine which flawlessly performs the instructions it is given, no matter how flawed those instructions may be.

On the Larian forums, it seems to be the good ol' "The UK game market is destroying the world" argument, which was also tagged onto dtp's Grey Matter, I believe.

I'm surprised to hear it's not out in the UK. I had assumed that was where my import copy was from.
