Dead Rising 3, Forza 5 and Ryse Day One Editions - what you'

Bit of an odd question but if you preorder the disc versions of these games do they come in the cases of the first picture?

Not really interested in Forza, and I've already pre-ordered Dead Rising 3, but Ryse seems a bit too risky given its tortured development. I'll download it within the two weeks if the reviews are good and get the goodies that way.
I don't get the appeal at all. Like what do they do... say something stupid then read the replies while they touch themselves? - Vampyre_Ghost on trolls.

So... pay £50 pounds and get a few minor extras or wait a few months and pay half price? As long as you have the patience, I think it's pretty obvious which one you'd do. I don't know why people pre-order; at least wait until it's out and people have done youtube videos on it. It will be the same price and you'll be sure that you like it. I want GTA V, but I'm very happy to wait a few months and get it for £20, instead of being weak minded and impatient and getting it on launch day, If you have the money, then fair enough, but I'd rather wait a while.

Less of the 'weak minded and impatient' please. Fine, you 'don't understand why people pre-order' despite having it reasonably explained to you once before, but that's no reason to be insulting. Disagree as you please, but please leave the rudeness behind, there's no call for it.

I'd be very surprised if the current situation where games are heavily discounted within weeks of release will continue with Xbox One, at least at first. The size of the customer base won't be enough to make a discount worthwhile. I'd love to be proved wrong, and maybe Cunning will tell me why if I am, since he usually does. :lol:

It was an odd question but I asked as I thought it was a nice touch if you preorder all three then you get some cases which when together make the X. quite expensive though just for an X in any case

Generally, Dave, our views tend to concur, however, on this occasion I'm going to break with protocol. I pre-order pretty much everything, and it's not unusual for me to get up to 6 games in a month. But I do so because I can afford to and because I have the time available to me that enables me, should I wish, to game for many hours a day. Yes, I could save myself a considerable amount of money if I were to buy weeks or months later, but why should I when I can afford to buy what I want, when I want? Your comment might have a bit of validity if the choice is between feeding the family or getting the latest Call of Duty, but I suspect there are very few people that would make the wrong choice if faced with such a decision.

As much as I would like to go digital, and get each of these games in their digital form I am still somewhat bewildered as to the thinking that is currently going on at Microsoft; they want us to go digital, but give us no incentive to do so.

People were speculating prior to the Big U-Turn that we would be able to sell on our digital games (though Microsoft never once gave any policy details), and then people bemoaned the loss of such a (unconfirmed!) feature at the time of the Big U, though it made no sense as if Microsoft wanted us to have this feature, then it would still be possible, as the oft cited reason for us not being able to trade a digital game is the fact that we no longer need to be online, though that is nonsensical as you have to be online in order to download the digital game and so it is more of an excuse than a reason. I often hear people say that they would go digital because they wouldn't have to leave the sofa, but I have approaching 370 360 games and I would estimate that I have only bought about half-a-dozen games on the high-street, with all the others having been bought over the internet (i.e. without me having left the sofa!), and of the games that I have bought over the internet, I would estimate that I receive approaching 50% prior to the day of release, and have received a game 5 days before it's release before. If Microsoft want us to go digital, why are they not offering the games at a reasonable discount, or perhaps even a few days earlier than the retail editions? As it stands, I can see no incentive to go digital other than the fact that I won't have to buy yet another cabinet in which to house my games!
