What about Deathwing end video(if there is one) I doubt that one is on the WoW Cataclysm Disc ?
aswell could borrow a friends disc and isntall that to get them anyway
If it's a Wrathgate type cinematic, you might not even know you're missing one. Also, it's better to be completely surprised and have it in game than to be spoon fed a video off Youtube. That's why Youtube video's are considered Spoilers, like with the fall of the Lich King. Although that video was kind of a let down.
This is why the game I'm most looking forward to is Deus Ex: HR, instead of anything from the increasingly bland and contrived Warcraft universe.
I have already bought/downloaded the Upgrade Digitally. I have already seen.. and can always see again the cinematic. The ones "in-game" are now live Machinima... and aren't large rendered videos and there are a LOT more of them than ever before... it rocks!
I will probably look for the intro cinematic to be offered in a torrent for filesharing and copy them into the folders later. As for the other ones (from Wrath and before) I already have them from my oder install... problem solved.
I don't know what the issue is... Digital D/L is a convenience.. and for that convenience there is usually some drawback. You have a choice... go buy the DVD if you want.
But seems some peeps want their cake and eat it too... "teleport" my box to me at 12:01am. Sorry it doesn't work that way.
For me? there was NO hesitation... I am on East Coast.. so I can go to bed a little early.. say 9pm (6 server) and set the alarm for 2:45 am (11:45pm server) Make some coffee, maybe a little breakfast... and jump into the game refreshed and ready for a marathon of gameplay.
Yes of course I'd like to have the cinematics... and since I want them.. I will find a way to get them after the fact... but on first launch of the game.. I would skip it anyway and start leveling ASAP.
Thank you Blizzard!

Are you people blind or? You are getting all cut-scenes and cinematics included in digital download!!!
Removing the cinematics from the digital version is just bad. Why shouldn't I get all the game when i pay for it? Missing cinematics remove some very important story telling from the game. Something blizzard said they wanted to add so you didn't have to read every quest to get a grip on things. But I'm not that worried actually. I *would* be worried if the account (after upgrading) became soulbound so you only could play from digitally downloaded clients. And we all know that's not gonna happen.
So worst case scenario is that we have to find a torrent somewhere for the *whole* game including the cinematics and use that to play. As long as they don't lock accounts to certain clients it's an easy fix actually. And with that in mind, why not give us the cinematics right away? I really don't see any reason to not do it.
My guess is a misinformed GM rather than anything else actually.

Well, they dont wanna redo the thing they did with Fall of the Lich King, video being exposed before anyone killed him <.<
The perfumed* boys he wrapped in chains and threw into the sea. They were unnatural creatures, and the ship smelled better once cleansed of their presence.
Looks like blizzard wants people who buy the digital copy to download an illegal version of the game from a torrent site... Thats what I would do if I bought the digital version.
Seems the cinematics are being held back and will be streamed to the client upon launch 7-12, I understand it's so certain sites and individuals don't datamine the in game cata cinematics before launch.
Whatever the case its so simple to get the cinematics I really don't see the issue with them holding them back.
Remember the cinematic we have seen may not have seen the whole thing but merely what they wanted to show us at the time.

Even though i didn't digital download i decided to do this method, not because i'm in any rush but because i'm excited lol.
Lets be honest blizzard isn't going to spoil it by putting the cinematics in right away, I'd expect them to be streamed in around release day.

Alrighty, so I just called Blizzard myself to see what was up with the in-game rendered cinematics. First of all the person who I talked to was completely confused by what I said. So it went something like this:
Me: So if I do a quest that activated in-game rendered cinematics it will play the cinematic? with the digitally downloaded copy?
Blizz Rep: Yes it will, it will be like you have everything the boxed copy will have. People are probably getting the blue post confused with the cinematic DVD that will not be included in the download.
And there you have it.
Who let the dog's out?! Whooo!!!
