AoC pre order had the option to get early access, which was 5 bucks (for 10 days, so it was the normal sub fee divided by 3, basically). however it did have bonus items, some of them based on where you ordered them from.
You got (everyone) the totem of origins, the drinking cape and a bag (good sized one) the optional bonus items were the mammoth, rinho, a special bow and there were some others i forget. I ordered from Amazon... if i recall correctly and got the rhino.
I hope you can get bonus items from FC direct download purchase, as i rather give my money to them than split with EA for a boxed copy.
A digital version of collector's editor would rock (even tho i am not sure i'd buy it)
Where do I hand in my VISA card? Just send one collector's edition in return.
I don't usually get boxed collectors editions of stuff but this one I'm SO already there ...I hope they get really creative and maybe include something over the top like a copy of the essential works of H.P. Lovecraft with a special cover and a poseable action Cthulhu ...oh and one of Sappho's socks too, and cookies!!
I prefer retail collectors editions, personally. I like the nifty bells and whistles that come with them. Like badges and little figures and stuff. we had a thread about what we want to come in the collectors editions about 2 years ago Hehe. That one got a good amout of responses
Sappho-"Pretty soon there’s was this symphony of brainfarts all working in harmony over extended periods of time, with new and exciting brainfarting misfits joining in in the percussion section."
