im interested in this as well. when we prepurchase a copy at gamestop/ebgames will there be a hard physical copy to pick up or is it all digital? Cause on the guildwars 2 site for pre-purchase, everything is digital except the $100+ collectors edition.
Then you got 2 days after launch to enter in the retail cd key.
According to the FAQ and another poster
Could you link to this please, Xeeh? I know Amazon has up where they will e-mail the code, although Super Saver Shipping will be a few days after launch to deliver the physical game. Thanks in advance!
North America: When Guild Wars 2 launches, customers will need to return to the retailer with proof of purchase in order to receive the full Standard Edition box and the retail serial code. They'll need to apply this retail serial code to their Guild Wars 2 account within five days of launch to continue playing without interruption.
Europe: Customers will buy the Standard Edition Pre-Purchase box and receive their serial code. This is the only serial code customers will receive and will grant access to the Beta Weekend Events, three-day Headstart Access, the Hero's Band digital item, and full access to the final live game. Customers will not need to return to the retailer to receive another serial code.
Collector's Edition, regardless of region, is handled the same way as SE in NA.
