I was just wondering if the US Limited Edition will ship on time since it includes the strategy guide, and the strategy guide appears to be shipping a week after the game.

Thanks,
Dan

The answer to your question, Dan, is yes - I was looking at UBi's website yesterday and came across a page which said that if you order Myst V (normal) and the strategy guide separately, you can ask Ubi to ship Myst V without waiting for the guide. Plus they've committed to delivering all editions pre-ordered on time for the first 400 customers or money back!

Now the question is....

How can you tell if you are among the 1st 400? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Well, if you ordered before they made the announcement (which, luckily, I did), then you're one of the first 400. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Does UBISOFT post anywhere just how many orders have already been placed? Has anybody heard what the response so far has been?

Ok, sounds good http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif I ordered the Limited Edition on 7/23.

But wait a minute, I just looked again at the site again. It says the first 400 "European" order. I guess it does not apply to me then.

I also noticed it said something about a Collector's Edition for the US, but the store only offers a Limited edition and a Standard edition. Can I assume the Collector's edition and the Limited edition are the same? Or did I order too early? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Can you assume the Collector's edition and the Limited edition are the same?

From the US Ubisoft Store's Myst V: End of Ages Limited Edition page (http://store.ubi.com/item.jsp?item=69252):

"About the Limited Edition:

Beautifully designed and packed with bonus content, the Limited Edition offers Myst fans a memorable gift to mark the end of the series:

€ A 22-minute video, made by GameTap, offers a retrospective look at the making of the entire franchise.
€ The original game soundtrack transports fans to the ambient worlds of Myst whenever and wherever they like.
€ A collector's art piece provides a frame-able keepsake from the worlds of Myst.
€ The official strategy guide helps new and old explorers progress through this final adventure."


From the European Ubisoft Store's MYST V: END OF AGES Collector's Edition page (http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp?catalogid=305&id=20) (click on the Union Jack on the left side for English):

"This Limited Edition includes:

€ Myst V : End of Ages game on DVD-ROM

€ Exclusive bonus DVD with:
- 25 minutes Making-of
- Game soundtrack
- Game trailers

€ Exclusive collector booklet (152 pages) including:
- Intro from Rand Miller
- Exclusive world-premiering preview of the new Myst book (€œThe Book of Marrim€, written by Rand Miller).
- D€ni language grammar & dictionary
- Previous Myst games overview
- Artwork gallery"


So, the answer is - not really!

If you look closely it should say "expected ship date Sept 20, 2005". At least my UBI order status does... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Oh yeah - don't take that date as "for sure". It's a release date for a game. Sometimes things change.

Now, I have not heard anything about the release date being delayed, nothing like that at all. It's just the usual warning on release dates for games.
