Normally ,even if im only soso on a game,i'll get the special/le version of the game anyways but I will be honest here this edition not having a physical release made it so much easier to go "Eh I dont realy like the battleplay,so i'll just get the DD off of the psn and save the extra money"
I have nothing against DD only releases of games even if my preferance is obviously for a physicall release ,I understand its a cost factor and it'll keep the game ultimately cheaper but its still realy odd to not have a disk for the special edition.
Im sure alot of people will still order this version,the figure is awesome,but for me being on the fence about the game anyways the lack of a physicall copy realy was the deciding factor in not getting this box set.
Mabey umd's could have been made for the figma edition only on the preorders up to a certain point in time so that way not to much excess money was wasted on the creation? It would probably delay the release...But eh.
In future I doubt highly id buy any special edition box set of a game unless it has a physical game in it.
Being without one in this set realy was a deturant in myself buying this version and trust me I never have issue buyng a special edition and I know the "goodies" are the insentive to spend the extra money..but it just lacks the same apeal as if it did contain a disk,it just dosent scream at the collector in me as it otherwise would.
