Awesome to hear! Glad we can finally put those delay rumors to rest, I expect they're pretty confident they can hit this date and probably just putting in the finishing touches now. It is a bit iffy tho that the 2 colletor's editions come with a download code instead of the actual game disc tho if we wanted to nitpick. I think there's a fairly large overlap between those who buy collectors editions and those who prefer physical media.

Yeah a Collector's Edition with download codes that will eventually expire is ridiculous. You won't really have the game in your physical collection to hold onto.

Could be a tactic to get people to buy the special edition and standard to get the physical copy. I'm not even saying this specifically about Sony. Just industry-wide.

Well I think I’m going to do exactly that haha, so you may be right. That being said, I think if Sony was truly trying to get people to double dip (ala Nintendo with Pokémon),, they would have put multiple items in each collector’s edition that weren’t available in the other. GoW 2018 and now GoWR are the only games I’ve ever bought a collector’s edition for, yet when I thought initially that the collector’s edition had multiple items different from the Jotnar edition, I was strongly considering buying both.

Jotnar edition for me. I rarely nerd out and get anything more than the bare minimum edition that gives me a steel book case, but for GoW 2018 and GoWR, I’m willing to go all out.

Am I missing pricing? Or did they really not release it yet?
