    [​IMG] Yes, it's true, or at least being considered. But the question remains: why release a collectors edition now? NWN hasn't been exactly well recieved by it's target audience thus far, and while it has it fans, I can't figure out why release a collectors edition this late. The most hard core fans, the ones who would likely have shelled out extra for a collector's edition, have alread bought the game. And obviously a set of trading crards, music cd, or game/worldbuilder's guide (something like that should have included in the origional release..inexcusable) certainly won't tempt anyone to purchase again. NWN isn't exactly a Lord of the Rings type franchise here. So why release something like this now. To grab the fence sitters? I doubt it will work. If they have reservations about purchasing the game, a few trinkets won't get the to buy. If it's to get those who don't think NWN is worth the money to purchase, well, a few cheap extras won't help much I don't think. I could perhaps see it if it hasn't been released in some foriegn markets yet, but I think the time for something like this has passed. Perhaps they should take the suggestion I sent them: include an "official" campaign worth playing through. That might boost sales.

    I posed much of the same questions in the survey comments. And it has been released everywhere already.

    I suppose the only sane reason to do it would be if they released it for the same price as the original was sold for, and if they did it solely because they ran out of copies and had to make a new batch, so they'd redesign the whole game package, patch it up (to the current patch, anyway) and sell it as such. Otherwise, I really doubt anyone would buy it again just for the extra trinkets.
