Check this out guys. Paradox now practically forces you to buy the Collectors edition if you want to be part of the PATCHING process.
This Collectors Edition of EU: Rome will not be sold in retail.
Besides the game of course, the Collectors Edition will include:
* A specially designed "EU:Rome bust", height 15 cm. See images in the webshop.
* A unique forum avatar (think gold!)
* Access to the "EU: Rome Collectors Edition forum" designed to give the hard core fans EU: Rome something extra. You will see a more intense developer presence, and will also be the first to receive any extra material ongoing. In addition you will also be in the fast lane to participate in regular beta testing of upcoming builds and content upgrades. This is also where polls of what to include in upcoming patches and products happen.
Now how bad is that, not only are you going to get a crappy buggy and flawed game to begin with out of the box, but, if you want to be part of the PATCH FEEDBACK process you have to SPEND MORE MONEY hahahah. Used to be you just had to buy the game, now you must buy the COLLECTORS edition which is probably in the $70 range or near it.
And who wall doesn't want a UNIQUIE FORUM AVATAR over there? hahahaha It amazes me the gimmicks some companies will use to prey on young innocent minds to spend another $20 bucks for a game. Now you put a Jersey in that box and I might think about spending that extra $$. A plastic bust of Caesar or whatever isn't going to impress me none as Shania Twain would sing. ;)
