From: Carson City, NV
For what it's worth, the physical shipment, plus download, was available over a week ago when I first bought the game. At least it was in the US store. I went ahead, ordered it, downloaded and installed it on my laptop and desktop and haven't looked back. I have full faith that someday, the physical shipment will arrive, but so far I've already logged in about a hundred hours on this game and feel it money that was exceptionally well-spent.
Anyone who is "waiting" is either making excuses, or is ordering from a locale where the store option to buy both is not available. Just my 0.02 and log to throw on the fire...
I bought the game when it came out and the download was the only option in the US. I just looked and it still is. No physical shipment for the US when I go there?!
You are indeed correct. The download version is the only one showing at the moment. My apologies.
You probably bought the one day Erik says they were available. Good timing! We both were right.
