Just so everyone knows, all the hard copy is going to contain is an origin code, same as the digital download......Amazon will ship it next day and you will have it on release day, get a $20 amazon gift card (good as cash), get something to put on the shelf and get the exact same product plus printed material and physical brainier, get the hard copy and save $20.

I cant understand why they won't offer the credit with the download version of the game. Makes no sense to ship something that contains a code when they could just email it to you.

Yeah. I don't get it either, but oh well. Hard copy it is.

good to see them having to price match, i see greenman gaming is also offering store credit too but none of them have the face value of an amazon GC since the others are restricted to another digital purchase only.

closed beta starts tomorrow too for amazon preorders.

Sent in an email asking about this last week, got "forwarded to the appropriate department" and haven't heard anything since. Awkward.

Because if you made it cheaper to offer electronic version there would be no reason for Walmart or other retailers to stock this item.

Disclaimer: I've embraced digital and I have a few thousand dollars worth of games I purchased through various digital retailers.
