    Gangrel, Atari Producer, made a post in the Atari forums (of all places) explaining about the limited quantities of the DVD/SE version.

    Hey everyone, I dropped in so I can help to end the confusion. So with no further ado, here's the situation. Currently there are going to be 3 versions of the game available (more or less), please let me explain.

    1) 6CD version (main version for North America, rest of the world, Asia, and some parts of Europe)
    2) DVD (Main version for Europe, Germany will be DVD only, not North America)
    3) DVD Special Edition (w/bonus DVD and a headset, this should be available pretty much everywhere but in LIMITED QUANTITIES. I cannot discuss the amount we are creating so please don't ask)

    I hope that clears thing up.

    Also, we aren't kidding about the limited quantities, it's a special thing we put together for you folks, the hardcore Unreal fans. To ensure you get a Special Edition version, I would suggest that you pre-order at your local retailer, you know you are going to buy it, so might as well pre-order.

    So to squash the confusion, there are 3 versions (6CD, DVD, and DVD SE), all 3 may or may not be available where you live, because that depends on where you live and your local retailers not Atari. And finally, Special Edition is ONLY available on PC-DVD in limited quatities.

    Oh yeah, and DVD-SE is indeed in a big bad metal sleeve thingee, like Raffi said. The CD version however, has this really sweet printed cardboard thingee for your discs (with artwork and stuff, you'll see, plus a special tray for the Play disc). All the packing materials are TOP NOTCH this time.

    I've noticed everyone stopped talking about that.

    Yes, every time they've been questioned about the rebate they have responded with an answer that affirms the promised rebate.

    Yeah, considering most retailers are offering the SE for the same price as the regular.

    they have kinda just said that the "SE" version we are all preorderimng is ONLY THE DVD version! :( WTF????

    Why didn't they give exact pricing? That really didn't help at all.

    Deliberatly loosing money seems to be high on TwAtari's list of priorities...

    Because that'd require intelligence. Not something the morons at Atari are known for.

    I was planning on getting the SE version, but as it's impossible to buy, I'm stuck with the standard DVD version.

    Are you sure? I have a sinking feeling telling me that the SE that EBgames has for pre-order is in actuality only the DVD version of the 6CDs and nothing more. That would explain the identical pricing of it and the regular version.

    Thats from the Eb games website it self and looking at the info that hal posted it looks like only the SE DVD edtion is coming with the headset so I think (and hope) that its the DVD SE they're selling.
