Well allow me to say that is way to expensive. I'm not liking the DLC offered to players who buy them either. I expect they will be sold for a few dollars after release.

I just hope it's easy enough to differentiate friend vs. foe in PvP. One thing I noticed when I played in beta was that it was sometimes difficult to tell who was who when lots of players are hacking and slashing away.

Not that I'll even play much PvP, anyway. I'm all about the PvE.

I thought 99 for the physical edition is reasonable, I paid 129 or 149 ( cant remember which) for the witcher 2 collectors edition.

I was thinking the same thing. It will be a bit confusing even in PVE seeing a non-usual race in an alliance that you would not expect.

I wish pre-order had earlier access. Not because I am a level fiend ( I never hit max level) but I just cannot wait to play!

Pre-orders have 5 days headstart.

As for the PVP thing, there are flags for enemies factions (above character's head). It's too frenetic for you to have the time to id the enemies by their races anyhow.

I really don't like the "play as any race for any faction" thing. The other bonuses are fine, and I'll probably grab a digital deluxe edition myself.

Actually, the Imperial race is pay gated content - which they promised they wouldn't do.

That's another cause for concern.

A new CGI trailer was also released to follow up on the previous one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVMNQozxqos

I have zero interest in this game, but I have to hand it to them, their CGI trailers are pretty sweet.

Is Bethesda pushing for that LGBA (or stuff) agenda? I wonder how many players are going to marry a player of the opposite sex in game and how of those marriages will reflect any real gender.

Prices are:

$100/$135/$148/$123

$80/$108/$115/$105

Just to put things in perspective.

They didn't call it a marriage on the pre-order bonus (but it's totally what it is).
