I am not able to find anyone that carries BD. Anyone know where I might get a copy.

If you have a credit card, it's not that hard to find a copy on internet stores like Amazon for instance.

Welcome to the forum by the way! Enjoy your stay!

BD is also still available from eBay; Paypal can use a bank account or credit card, and individual sellers may take checks or money orders, etc.

Is there really still no way to buy BD and DD online, as downloads? I want to buy it, but I also don't want to give money to some random douchebag on ebay who's jacked up the price insanely by now. I want to buy it directly from a publisher, or better yet from Larian. No dice?

Can't say about purchasing the game as a download, but if it's merely jacked-up ebay prices you're worried about, Amazon has new copies of Beyond Divinity (Cd Version) available for $18 and from third party sellers for $8 (new).

well, no. not really. it's the second hand market which pisses me off. \:\)

and I'm in europe.. the lowest price I see is Ł15 for the XPLOSIV version of DD and 6 eurons for the XPLOSIV BD. that last one is really nice actually. and it's not from a private person.

but regardless it would be much better to not have to deal with discs and boxes and to buy it straight from larian. I wouldn't mind a much higher price than the two I quoted either.. as long as I know the money is going somewhere useful.

We hope to offer both games online one day, but we can't do it just like that.
Currently we lack a bit of time ;\) to start with but we promise to look into the matter.

Fantastic! \:\)

Have you guys looked into using gamersgate? I believe they have an own team dedicated to turning regular old cd/dvd games into downloadable versions, but not completely sure. http://www.gamersgate.com/ -- their contact stuff is here http://www.gamersgate.com/index.php?page=page&what=publisher

I don't know if their rates or whatever are fair though, I just like using their thing.

Or even better, get them onto Good Old Games, http://www.gog.com

hot! although you'd be restricted to charging maximum $9.99 for each. and no drm allowed. which is all good in my book, but all developers/publishers might not like it \:\)

Since I was such a douchey complainer before I just wanted to update here as I saw Beyond Divinity just went up on gamersgate-- and I bought it.

So, AWESOME.

What about Divine Divinity though? And, err.. do Larian actually have any control over this stuff at all or is it completely publisher side managed? Hehe.

Yes, we know about these deals, without us, they can't (and shouldn't) offer the game online.
But this all depends on so many things that we never can put an exact date on it.

As for : that's not for tomorrow \:-D but hopefully soon!

Guess I'll best post it here. For the Belgian people: a week ago, I found two copies at Mediamarkt in Antwerp, Belgium. One of them is mine now, so there's still one left \:-D

No no, they'll probably have more than one copy left. Mediamarkt is just the kind of store where you can still find old (and therefore cheaper) games. I think Mediamarkt has stores in Holland as well.

I know the name of this market from Germany as well, I wonder whether it's the same chain.

Yes, it is, as far as I know.

There is the so-called "Metro Group". Mediamarkt & Saturn belkong to that, but not Aldi & Lidle, which are two distinct and separate companies which have nothing to do with the Metro group.
