Look at the difference in these ship dates:



02-08-2002, 09:25 AM
Nahhhh - already have Jedi Knight, and wouldn't pay the extra $10 plus shipping to the UK for a key chain.... although it would be nice! But not really worth it!

Kozi :fett:

in that one day i could beat the game...muahahaha....i might think about it....

plus the box for the collectors edition looks cooler (sorry to let my grammar slip MORE COOL)

and i would pay 10 dollars for a jk0 keychain.....who wouldnt?

plus i can sell the jk in there to someone (unless it has a different cd cover thingy than jk had, then ill sell my old copy)

02-08-2002, 10:01 AM
...it were the same price as I would pay for the regular cardboard box version in the store (or just a couple of dollars difference).

I tend to go for cheap, but having the tin box would be cool. I normally save my game boxes, if nothing else, than they look cool. I already have JK, MotS, and Dark Forces 1, and I wouldn't buy the keychain.

Now if it were autographed by members of the team...

*rolls eyes*

well tons of my friends want this game, and i am definitely not doing the cd burn/share thing (i usually do that with games i know im not going to be playing much).....i want lucasarts to get as much money as possible...and i want that keychain...0wnage

im not going to buy the collectors tin since the extra $10 would be a waste for me since i already have Dark Forces and Jedi Knight

02-08-2002, 11:44 AM
I MIGHT buy it. I don't have Dark Forces and I know S1DC is never going to send me my jedi knight cds i'm letting him borrow...altho I'm running JK on a crack...miss those cutscenes. (even if the actors were crap) I'll probably end up getting it...that's what? $20 a game since it comes with 3?

Hey!!!! It fits my policy of not paying over $20 for one game!!! and I'll get a free keychain to go with it! cool!!

02-08-2002, 12:11 PM
Nah, I've already pre-ordered Jedi Knight Outcast from LucasArts anyway, and don't feel like cancelling my order. I'll just get the normal version. I've just now gotten Dark Forces to run smoothly on my system, so no need to have the collectors version.

02-08-2002, 02:22 PM
I think I probably will. $10 isn't too much of a hit, and plus I get a nice tin box to go along with it. ;)

02-08-2002, 02:26 PM
what is the "tin box"
anyway, what I will pay for the regular version plus s&h will be the same that I should pay for the SE
And I even get it late :(

02-08-2002, 02:44 PM
Well I'll be getting it from the shops with the strategy guide :)........and YEY, the UK get it earleir than everyone else :D

02-08-2002, 02:56 PM
I won't. Why? I'm a poor student on a fixed income. $10 is a lot to me especially since my stocks are down. However, if when I go to the store to pick it up and that's all they have, I might pry the wallet open a little more.

I prepurchased the TIN at my local EB Friday, the guy there said they are getting 10 of them and I got #9, so this is probably a hard to find item.

02-11-2002, 06:54 AM
I never keep boxes anyway, already have DF / JK / MotS, and don't need yet another promotional keychain I won't use ...

02-11-2002, 07:16 AM
Are you kidding, of course. I do not have df and that is worth 10$, I've already got JK but I can give one of them to a friend, and why hessitate for the tin and key chain, not to mention getting it a day erlier:D :D :D

Does it come with MotS? It didn't say it did, so I assume not.

02-11-2002, 07:57 AM
No, as far as I know it isn't included. I'm kind of confused though because everybody is saying they have MOTS as a reason not to buy the collector's addition.

02-11-2002, 09:09 AM
I'll probly get the collectors edition, the tin looks cool, and its not much more. I can understand why its not a bid deal though.

02-11-2002, 01:46 PM
I already have the other two games... but I am tempted to get the CE anyway. I guess I'll have to make up my mind pretty soon...

EB's release dates are figurative. They have a history of gestimating dates to sucker in pre-orders.

I'll absolutely get the spiffy looking collectors edition. Why do you ask? here I'll tell you

1) Comes with a tin box thats nice and shiny
2) Comes with JK, Mots and DF (already have these but there so scratched up new copies wouldn't hurt to have)
3) it comes out a day earlier
4) I can brag to my friends that I got JO a day before they did mwahahaha :laughing:

belgirion it will mostlikely come out the same day as the normal version and everytime ive ordered from EB games ive gotten the item the afternoon its released or the day after its released

02-11-2002, 09:11 PM
hmmm...I'd still like a new JK cd

02-11-2002, 09:15 PM
Anyone know if DF will pretty much be like the original or if it will have been modified so you can run it in WinXP or other modern incarnations of Windows without having 61,263 driver incompatibilities/problems when using DOS or the prompt? I don't mean has the game content been changed, just its OS.

02-11-2002, 09:18 PM
Absolutely! You see, I never actually had JK, although I've played the whole thing (borrowed), so it'll be nice to own it for only a bit more....also the collector's thing is really nice.

02-11-2002, 09:35 PM
Not at the moment, becauseI have little money. Later this summer I'll get it.

02-11-2002, 10:12 PM
I ordered mine from LA the dat before EB came out with this deal so I'll just ride out the LA deal and use the extra cash to put towards a new Audigy gamer.

02-13-2002, 06:42 PM
I paid off the rest of the TIN and the EB guy said the release date has been changed to 3/29 so it'll be in store 3/30. Hope the ebworld site will reflect this soon.
