What year is it?
Why would anyone want a dvd copy of the game for 10 bucks?
I've burned more discs than I will ever remember. Sometimes they last better than the commercial copies, and sometimes not. Lesson, you get no real guarantee with that physical copy. And if your PC can't burn a disc, well I can only chuckle, sorry.
I once had a 2 TB storage drive die on me too. Lost 2 TB of data. Lesson here, don't consider a back up a real guarantee either.
If I buy this game, the only thing that matters is the serial which ensures if my disc copies and my copy on the lap top and the copies I have here and there on this drive and that drive are not my only recourse. I can always re download it.
Those that pay for JUST a disc in a box. I mean just that, just a disc and a box. You have no right to comment on the price of the product. You have more money than common sense.
It's about an 80 dollar game when you figure in taxes. Yeah it would be cool if it came with a neat full colour hardcover manual too. I paid serious cash when I bought World in Flames. The manuals are awesome. The disc in the one book though. It has zero value to me. Even with my serial printed on a nice silk screened disc. It's worth at best 20 cents.
If I am blessed with this game for my birthday next month, I desire the download. But it's the serial that counts eh. The physical media has no value.
The 10 bucks is the cost to send the item to you in the mail. The time and the effort of staff to process the request.
I've seen this discussion before. I'm always appalled that people actually pay the 10 bucks for a disc and a box.
This has just been an opinion of course. Mine.
