    Digital Deluxe ? Is that new ? I haven't seen something like that with the other expansions only the Digital/Retail or CE.

    Yeah, it's new. I think they want to let more people have the pet/mount than just the physical CE holders.

    I know I am as well as many many others, are still waiting to be able to pre-order the CE. :\

    You have to access the account screen a certain way. There isn't anything exciting there, the links aren't working to actually upgrade.

    Speaking as someone who has done all the CE (minus the original, saw the box but decided "why should I pay more for a pretty box?), I will do the digital deluxe because I want to be up and running ASAP with mists, but don't want to give up the pet. I will probably still hold on to my physical box CE shrink wrapped for my collection

    Ah, I guess Chaud answered my question - feeling deprived because I don't see the CE link on any of my accounts either. Well, I guess it will show up eventually, like when there's actually something to buy lol.

    while getting to 90 i found say a total of 7 bugs

    raid bosses tho thats a different thing yet to do pet battles
    Yeah, they started testing the heroic raid boss versions only just last week. Same for pet battles. Other than those two big items, the beta is actually running quite smooth for the most part.

    Edit: Forgot to include The Jade Forest. Don't think there's been any recent updates about the zone, either.

    So it's basically "pay two-three times more for a companion pet or something" version? Oh that goblin blizzard CEO

    Blizzard finally did it. Digital Deluxe edition for the motherfucking WIN.

    Now, if only we knew what was in the DDE... Mount? Pet? Both? Neither?

    It's not bugged to all hell. Also from times past, what we are playing, the devs are usually one or two builds ahead of us.

    Yep, TOTALLY the first time we've ever seen a Collector's Edition from ANY gaming company.

    Now, if only Blizz would realize the profit potential of selling a Digital Deluxe Upgrade Key for... 20 bucks in Blizz Store

    So they are selling the same thing, just charging more for it, eh?

    I'll be getting the physical CE as usual. There's just something about having all the extra goodies that makes it more worthwhile. I can wait a few days if it doesn't land on my doorstep on release day (I had to last year because Amazon UK used HDNL for delivery. Anyone who knows who HDNL are will know my pain... It turned up Christmas Eve by which time I had bought a copy from a local Game store!)

    It will be aimed at people who collect pets/mounts but either aren't interested in the box or don't want to wait for the box to be delivered.
    It's all about convenience in this day and age

    Assuming that this will be the same as the CD edition as far as the bonus in game pet/mount... since they give it a different name, it will probably be cheaper than the full CE edition (and not limited supplies). I wonder if they will make or lose money on this, since they will get more sales from people that only want digital copies and those willing to spend some, but not a lot more. However, they will lose out on those that will buy this instead of the CE edition.

    For those that get the CE edition later than game start, Blizz should credit 4 months of game time if you buy the digital copy and later attach a CE edition, similar to the anual pass and D3 CE edition.

    Here's hoping that they keep to CE edition being purely vanity bonuses, unlike Rift $10 upgrade to CE edition for a bigger starting bag (and a mount useable at any level).

    It will defintely have both the pet and the mount, what other purp0se would there be for a deluxe edition? The question is on the soundtrack and digital version of the book. The last question will be it´s pricing. Gotta figure $15 to $20 more than the normal digital download, but will it be significantly less than the Box CE.

    Unlimited CD keys for a DDE, without having to produce physical media (Game DVD, silly books, music CDs)... Blizz will make decent $ on this. Low production price with a potential price tag of... lets say 60 bucks. if even 1/10 of all MOP sales are Digital Deluxe, that's 60 million in revenue.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the announcement of the pre-orders (and the subsequent request for a refund from GameStop) and I will be getting the Digital Deluxe Edition if it contains both pet and mount. If not, I'll scrounge up some more and upgrade to the full CE from GameStop if I can.

    As I said before, the profit potential of Digital Deluxe Edition keys for Vanilla through Cataclysm is incredible... a Digital Deluxe Bundle that contains keys to upgrade your licenses to Vanilla/BC/WOTLK/Cataclysm DDE (for the pets) for 60 bucks, or 20 bucks per expansion
