I do actually think it is funny, but, maybe they SHOULD charge some of you FULL price, and then NOT ship the books. And in that way, you get what you claim you desire, just the digital download, NO books, NO cd too of course as it comes with the books.
So in my case, it would have been 160 bucks after shipping and taxes, and no physical shipment. Because as you are saying, you want to pay the same price as physical, just no 'surprise' sum at your door tacked on as additional.
That's idiotic, but hey, it's your money. Why argue with a person demanding to spend 160 bucks on a digital download, when I can get the same thing AND the books.
All the silly comments about clay tablets, and archaic forms of communication have been creative I admit.
It's a shame one person isn't on the forums today though. He sure picked the wrong time to be absent.
Exactly, I am happy to pay full price, excluding shipping charges for this game.
But you are arguing that I should not be allowed to play the game, because I don't value the physical items. How can people be so close minded that they want to force everyone to have to think the same was as them. All I want it the option to buy digital only, but you are saying that I shouldn't have that option because you prefer the printed manuals.
It saddens me that you would force me not to enjoy this game along with you. We could both enjoy it and play it multiplayer together and even become friends through our love of this type of game, but currently you are saying that I shouldn't be allowed to play it, because it's your way or the highway.
What has this community come to? All I want is a choice. I'm not saying that they shouldn't sell the physical version, I would never dream of denying you the option of buying the books and maps and everything.
Imagine if it was reversed and there was no physical manuals, some people arguing that people who want printed manuals should not not be allowed to buy the product because they don't understand that is meant to be a digital game only. You would be rightly upset that you should be allowed to choose, given that Matrix has always offered both physical and digital options in the past.
I just don't get why you are so against me playing this game. Can't we both be allowed to enjoy this great game?
