I wonder if the version they are selling will be a factory-pressed DVD or a DVD-R. If it's the latter, I might as well just download it and burn it myself (assuming it's available for download in Canada). I don't think the case will be worth the extra cost and the postage. I'll just print one myself. I can understand how people bought the first release felt, though. If you're gonna purchase it though the mail, you deserve to get a case with it.

Anyone know if this is going to be available outside the U.S. this time? I'd post over at the forums but I can't be bothered  :)

RAD just posted (on the CT forum) that it will be available for download worldwide. I suppose that means the DVD will be available worldwide, too.

I just posted that question at the CT board. If it is duplicated (DVD-r etc) I will just do the download myself. I assume the case art will be available as well. If it is replicated (DVD-5 glass master stamp etc) then I will order the disc.  Hopefully this time they have already started the manufacturing and we won't have to wait 2 or 3 weeks from ordering to get it.

Looks like the release is scheduled for next Thursday - June 19th. Should give everyone plenty of time to download it for the weekend, if people decide to go that route. The web site's "store" isn't open yet, though. (They're selling the DVD's themselves this time, though the download will still be available through EZTakes.) This leads me to think this is probably not gonna be a pressed DVD. They'll probably just burn them and print the covers as they receive the orders. Can't really blame them, though, as they probably don't have the sales volume to cover the costs of manufacturing DVD's.

Wait, is it next Thursday or July 19? Or have I slipped into a coma overnight for a month? :^)

Heh. Sorry. I was doing work all morning that involved stuff for July, so it was on my mind. (Editted the message so there's no further confusion and/or time travel.  ;))

It would appear that they are "manufactured" DVD's, as Josh mentions in his blog today that they come in a shrink-wrapped DVD case. Good news for those who want in that form. But a delima for those of us that aren't sure if we want to wait for snail-mail. Maybe they'll make the choice for me by making shipping charges to Canada too high.

"RAD", a moderator over at the CT forum, says they are going to be pressed DVDs:

Ooooh. Download or buy? Download or buy?

Get it NOW and watch it tonight? Get it after a week (Or, judging from last time, a month) and get a nice prepackaged DVD? Pay the extra 5 and shipping, or get it on the cheap and burn it myself? Decisions! Decisions! :^)

But Paypal also lets you put in a credit card without having an account with them.

Ah, they do?  I had no clue since I've had an account with them for years.

Slow as molasses.

"Due to extremely high demand, some of our customers are experiencing slow download times. We are working to resolve this issue and will update this status message when the have it resolved. Thanks for your patience. "

Extremely high demand? You don't say.

I mean are they putting all the strain on their own servers? Have they ever heard of PEER-TO-PEER?!
