where to buy physical box?

Post by MysteriousStranger » September 22nd, 2014, 8:44 pm

Hello,

I was going to wait until release day to get the physical box, but it appears to not be listed anymore for purchase on the inXile store page, only downloadable versions, which I do not want. I'd rather have the disk.

I tried emailing inXile directly through their support, but never received a response at possibly ordering a physical box version by request.

EDIT:

First, thank you for the responses from inXile. I had to search for it on European sites, no big deal, I often buy stuff from the UK and have it shipped to the US.

For those that may read this post and are looking for a DVD hardcopy, either regular edition or the special Ranger Edition (Collector's Edition), here is what I found:

Amazon.com (US) - Wasteland 2 Regular Edition DVD - $39.99 + Shipping - In Stock

Amazon.co.uk (UK) - Wasteland 2 Regular Edition DVD - £21.85 (or $35.32 US) + Shipping - In Stock

Amazon.co.uk (UK) - Wasteland 2 Ranger Edition DVD - £59.99 (or $96.98 US) + Shipping Only 2 left in stock as of 10/8/14

Game.co.uk (UK) - Wasteland 2 Regular Edition DVD - £29.99 (or $48.48 US) + Shipping - In Stock (Ranger Edition not yet in stock)

Gameseek.co.uk (UK) - Wasteland 2 Regular Edition DVD - £20.85 (or $33.58 US) - In Stock

Gameseek.co.uk (UK) - Wasteland 2 Ranger Edition DVD - £29.79 (or $47.98 US) + Shipping (Was in stock, but now temporarily out as of 10/8/14)

As far as I know, the physical boxes haven't been finished yet. Whenever Deep Silver finishes them, they'll be shipped. If they're going to have physical retail, I would assume you'll be able to buy it wherever you buy other computer games.

I had to do a search for Deep Silver, never heard of that.

Is this it? Has there been any estimated time frame from inXile when these will be purchasable? http://www.deepsilver.com/us/game-view/ ... eland-2-1/

EDIT:

I checked on Amazon as well http://www.amazon.com/Wasteland-2-PC/dp ... asteland+2 , which has a release date of September 30th, however it does not say if it is in the "Ranger Edition" as listed on the Deep Silver site.

I'm afraid we can't really answer this. We're aware Deep Silver is not releasing in all territories simultaneously, but you'll have to get word from them on what the exact plan is, or perhaps try contacting a retailer like Amazon.

Buying a boxed retail copy online may be your best bet.

Amazon does not have any in stock the physical release day of the 30th.

The regular edition is on Amazon US.

However, the Ranger Edition (collector's edition) is only sold in Europe, which I found out. I am searching like mad all over UK gaming sites to find one.

Amazon.co.uk have a couple, but are extremely expensive. Game.co.uk say they are out of stock right now. What other game sites in the UK can I check?

EDIT:

Best deal I have found for Ranger Edition is gameseek.co.uk, and they are currently in stock. Total purchase price for conversation rate comes to a total of $56 US w/shipping.


Amazon.co.uk has 2 Ranger Editions in stock as of this writing. However, the price is rather absurd - conversation rate is $100 US w/shipping (insanity)

Game.co.uk has no Ranger Editions in stock as of this writing. Its pricing is as reasonable as gameseek.co.uk (£28.99 = $46.86).

I just got word that gameseek.co.uk was never able to receive any copies of Wasteland 2 Ranger Edition on DVD, so I had to cancel my order. Several other UK gaming sites still have not received theirs as well. What in the world is going on?

This is disheartening, because it is looking like I will never be able to get the collector's edition of Wasteland 2 and I still haven't even got to play the game yet.

inXile, please tell me, through your Deep Silver contacts, how in the world someone can obtain the boxed Ranger Edition? Has deep silver decided not to stock any overseas stores with it?

retailers in germany have boxed copies of WL2 in stores. with Deep Silver being a german publisher i suspect it might be worth a shot to try german amazon.

well, if you can live wih a digital copy of the manual, one is downloadable from inXile.
sure, if your a collector of physical goods, this may not be for you. but if you want the box primarily to save on bandwidth, it's an option.

oh, and just for the record, the small box, the non ranger edition, does not come with a printed manual at all anyway.
