The writers meetings must have gone something like this...

 

"How can we inject a bit of personality into the series?"

 

"Lets turn Cayde into Poochie!"

Will the spend £50 in March get £10 back in April work with this? Brings that digital price down nicely if it does. 

It says "IMMEDIATE PAYMENT REQUIRED", so it should.

Yup.

 

Also, the text of the physical Collector's Edition seems to reveal a new NPC:

 

Quote

The Destiny 2 – Collector’s Edition offers the ultimate collection of physical and digital items.

 

It Includes the Destiny 2 base game, a fully-wearable Destiny 2 – Frontier Bag, Expansion Pass, premium digital content, and a Cabal-themed Collector’s Box.

 

Born in the City, Hawthorne left as a teen to seek a life of freedom in the wilderness outside the safety of our walls. She has survived for years outside of Guardians’ protection, and has come to learn her true purpose: To provide shelter to humanity by helping them not only survive, but lead a better way of life. This is a frontier bag, as worn by Hawthorne. In it, you will find tools and a place to store the valuable equipment you uncover on your own adventures.

As exorbitant though £54.99 might seem for a new game preorder, when Brexit's wrapped up, this minus £10.00 might one day seem a bargain. I am (unsurprisingly) in.

That bag looks absolutely fucking mad. It's like a blind person made a handbag, and the only materials to hand were the Sixth Doctor's coat and a soda stream.

I paid eighty quid for an expansion pack because it had a Real Strange Coin in it, but even I, the best at liking Destiny, would draw the line at that bag, depending on how much it costs.

Kinell, were you one of the Strange Coiners? 

 

I ain't getting that CE. No siree. Digital all the way.

 

(£89.99 edition. Aw c'mon - we all know the expansions will easily be worth £40. Right?)

No.

 

But we'll all buy them anyway so might as well get that edition.

I don't know what a paracord is, but I assume your typical Dead Island de-limbed dead bikini-model statuess owner can use it to restrain one of their involuntary houseguests.

I did, yes. I justified buying the original special edition of Destiny because it had the expansions, and they were £20 each; I justified buying the expansion because it had a strange coin in it. Maybe I should get the bag and put the strange coin in it - who knows what wonders would ensue? My partner leaving me, probably.

I think it's more comfort blanket than rug. So yeah - it's great! You'll need it.

 

Btw, in the PSN store on the PS4 itself there's a 'Game + expansion pass' edition that's £79.99 as opposed to the £89.99 for the Digital Deluxe preorder. Far as I can see, all you miss out on is an emblem and a legendary crap sword and legendary crap emote.

 

Too late for me, alas, as I've already pre-ordered the Exclusive Emote (Fuckwit) Edition. Still, I console myself with the fact that by using Man Maths, the cdkeys credit minus £10 not-cashback only comes to £68.83. Come on though - that emote's going to be pretty fucking cool, right? I'm sure it'll keep my spirits up when grinding through the lacklustre base game and the two mind-numbingly misguided expansions, a.k.a. Now Walk Through This Corridor Backwards I and II.

Thanks for that. I'd just made it past the CD Keys step, so you saved me just in time.

 

Having spent the last 15 minutes contorting the facts to convince myself that spending £90 was sensible, £80 feels like a bargain!

Don't forget lord knows how many books that don't take what you've already done for 2-3 years into consideration.

 

I'll probably get the Digital Deluxe edition. Because I'm too lazy to get the disc out of the box again.

 

And you've sold me on that emote.

I pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition of the first game, got bored while on the Moon and then didn't come back to the game until The Taken King was released and everything was cheaper for new people :doh:

 

I'm right in there for the Destiny 2 Digital Deluxe pre-order 8-)

You can't buy memories, Tez*. And what memories we (well, not you) have!
