    The Deluxe edition also includes the soundtracks as download. That's in post #6.

    But no, it's not known if/when the sound track will be available as DLC or via an on-line music store like iTunes.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. The Special Edition includes the "2 CD Epic Soundtrack" while the Deluxe Edition just includes the "Game Soundtrack".

    Hey Mercade, I just saw this.

    So Deluxe Edition (downloadable) and Special Edition (box) differ from the soundtrack? I hate that kind of marketing!! It's :mad:

    That's basically the heart of my gripe... we have to choose between exclusive content with no guarantee the one we don't choose will be made non-exclusive in the future.

    Im seriously considering doing this but have never done it before. Any tips on exactly how to call in (or have someone call in for me) Im a shy person, and would feel weird caling in and saying "Im sick, I cant come in today" How do you guys call in sick?

    Depends entirely on what you want to fake. "Worse migraine in years" is easy and doesn't even require messing with your voice. Just sound morose.

    For your general cold / flu, use a slightly hoarse voice and say you feel miserable.

    Keep it short and sweet. No more than 2 sentences. Let them express sympathy (which they will). Thank them and say you're going back to bed. ::click::

    Then, enjoy. :goodjob:

    I'm sure there are easy-to-find websites who give more tips.

    ps I recall reading some studies about how many billions of dollars of productivity were lost when major game releases happened.

    I doubt there is any difference in the soundtracks being included in either the Special Edition or the Deluxe Edition. Since the Deluxe edition is downloadable, there's no relevance to mentioning that it's 2 CD's because there are no CD's involved. There's no reason to assume that there is a difference. Soundtrack = Soundtrack.

    Of course. It's currently available from two UK webshops at GBP 49.99. Play.com also has it listed, but they haven't gotten priced it anymore. See this thread with pre-order sites for details.

    Thanks, just a bit worried because it wasn't at the top of the site interface for the UK.

    The site only promotes the Amazon links because there's a kickback for the site to help pay for its operating costs. Don't ask me why Amazon.UK doesn't have it. I mailed them and the only answer I got is that the different amazon sites operate independently and make their own decisions as to which products they carry ...

    Ok, leave off the "2 CD" bit. Wherefore the word "Epic"?

    "Soundtrack" =/= "Epic Soundtrack"

    Product inventory lists are no place for marketingspeak and other meaningless adjectives. ;)
