Any idea what are the extras?
On a side note, are we even sure that it isn't futureshop who is overcharging for the CE?

Why pre-order, there should be tons of them when the game actually comes out.

I think the point of pre-ordering is to lock-in the $69.99 sale price. I'm with thelostdude, any idea what the extras are? I don't even have a good enough PC to run StarCraft 2 (most likely) but I'd still buy this if the extras are worth it.

I don't see anything about how this is a guaranteed price, but it does mention that. Other pre-orders sometimes mention date subject to change but I haven't seen Best Buy say that price could change.

I'm not preordering if this is already posted on RFD.. The chances of getting it now is slim to none

Guess I'll be standing in line at the midnight launch with the WoW crowd

When I pre-ordered Halo 2 back in the day, I managed to get it for $10 cheaper than normal due to a discount on the P.O. price. You've got nothing to lose by pre-ordering now; Either they honour the price and you get a deal, or they change the price and you can just cancel it.

Yeah, just cancel if they try to charge you more. If they do try to charge you more, they'll usually cancel for you actually.

Blizzard CEs are always good. Check out the WoW ones.

Pro-ordered one. I love StarCraft, and $30 off seems pretty solid to me! This also gives me a reason to get a half-decent gaming rig :D

It's inevitable though, all of their games since Warcraft III have had awesome collector's editions.

With the collective boner the WoW nerds got for the Lich King CE it's gonna happen, but my real concern is; are they gonna shaft the fans by releasing three different faction CEs? Or are they gonna be releasing MORE (3 different races, then one BIG 3-race box, then a FOURTH RACE! dun dun duuuuuuun!).

I hope a toy is involved :D I want them toys.

I click on the shipping and I picked the $1.99 ground. After I go thru the process, it starts charging me $15 shipping. What the?

Update:

Dunno why. After I cancel the order and re-process the order, it shows the correct amount. =)

Same for me. It was a great deal, 69.99$ for the collector and the beta key. So happy that I didn't hesitate 15 months ago to place the order :lol:. I don't remember having pre-ordered a game that early before the release.

It was funny too, how many people were just complaining about the deal when I first posted it. They all thought that would be the regular cost anyways...silly people...Blizzard will never release a CE for less than $100 after their success with WoW.
