    One computer only? (Digital)

    I understand they want to limit it so you cannot just download it willy nilly onto friends computers (I guess? But you would still need an account) but why are they limiting the digital download to one pc? I have three at my house alone, I assume some people have more..and they can all run GW2.

    "Digital Download: Available to download after purchase. Non-returnable. Download in US only. How It Works

    Unlimited play. Install on 1 PC"


    Or is this only Best buy that does this? This was taken off there site.

    I'm pretty sure the whole 1 PC thing is just for the Beta. Wouldn't make sense for the game itself to be honest.

    When you enter your key for the game, you can go to the website, log in, and it will have a little "GW2 not available" on the account page.
    This is because the full release is not available, but the point is that you can download it off the site if you can log into your account.. so I don't see why you'd only be able to install it on one PC.

    I'm wondering if the whole "1 pc" thing isn't just a typo. I have it downloaded on my pc and I downloaded it also on to my wife's laptop so she could play when I was doing school work.

    (Or bestbuy trying to sell more copies by 'accidentally' being 'misinformed')

    I have beta installed on 2 separate machines (desktop and laptop).

    Retail version obviously. Same thing other retail chains like best buy sell, EU version.
