Standard Edition -> Digital Deluxe Edition Upgrade: 2000 Gems ($25)

The pre-purchase price for the Standard Edition of GW2 is $59.99. The pre-purchase price for the Digital Deluxe Edition of GW2 is $79.99. That's a difference of $20. ANet stated that they plan to allow a future upgrade to the Digital Deluxe for Standard buyers if they want.

Well, according to this GW2 Guru thread - Digital Deluxe Edition: Worth It? - the price for the upgrade to Digital Deluxe in the in-game store is going to cost you 2000 Gems, or the equivalent of $25 since 800 Gems costs $10.

A $5 increase to upgrade Editions later. I think it should still only be $20 and companies who gouge for every extra nickel & dime like this are scumbags, but whatever. Hopefully in-game Gems from the Auction House will be a-plenty as the game goes on and the difference for those interested can be offset. Even though I got the Digital Deluxe Edition, it may not really be worth the extra $20 anyways. You are probably much better off using that $20 difference on 2 extra character slots instead.

I played lord of the rings online for a few years and those muther fuckers gouge every penny out of you. Granted, they are making it so that F2p players can play and afford content, but they started charging shit for subscribers in the store. I'm really hoping that ANet steers clear of this shit. This is for the upgrade, I know, but a few games are heading towards making you constantly buy content or perks with an in-game store.

ANet didn't steer clear of this shit with GW1 (ex. Merc prices are INSANELY HIGH) so there's no reason to think they won't gouge for prices in the GW2 cash shop as well. At least as far as GW2 is concerned, you can actually buy gems with in-game gold once the supply increases, so that will be a help to those interested but not looking to spend a lot of out-of-game money.


In GW1, for instance, take my two Prophecies-only Game of the Year edition accounts. While I activated them in time to get that special holiday bonus pane for Xunlai storage, and the GotY edition by default has the /bonus weapons included, those boxes/activation serials were generated from before ANet was giving out the Fire Imp summoning stone /bonus item for < L20 characters. Result? If I wanted to add the Fire Imp to those 2 accounts, it would've cost me $5 each from the in-game store. Fuck that.

u know all that shit matters nothing Mio. You'd listen to the soundtrack, then want to shoot yourself for doing so. You're best off not doing it. In all of these MMO's i've played, only one was worth paying the extra for collectors edition because they gave you a free mount. Other than that, i find that all of the shit they make you pay extra for is worthless, or it becomes worthless a month after the game is out
