  • Yeah sure, I'll preorder a game digitally, just in case they run out of downloads.
  • You never know what will happen in the future. 😜
  • I agree about digital preorder and even preorder of a normal box version. But it's a bit different in the case of collector edition. I'm considering buying this.
  • Ah, my bad, I didn't realise it was a physical copy as I'm so used to Ori being digital here. Yeah, I agree, preordering physical Collector's Editions is cool as they are (usually) actually limited.
  • Anyone know if the Collector's Edition will be available in Europe?
  • Why are they making the collector's edition only for xbox one...? I want a collector's edition of this game for Windows.
    So many things that I don't want them to happen, they happen... one of them is blizzard entertainment nearly went to downfall with world of warcraft and other games they make too...
    As every year passes by, the video gaming industry keeps disappointing me more and more... until I'll just stop not just playing but even thinking about video gaming.
    The please make me Ori and the Will of the Wisps Collector's Edition for Windows thanks.
