So.. if you buy the Collectors Edition you can not download the game and have to wait for the shipment to arrive in order to play?
Correct. The Steam codes are available in the box.
So for paying more money, you got to wait longer... that's just great.
Don't know what's so hard about making the download available to those who bought the CE.
I agree. You should be able to get the codes online, and then receive the box with swag later, sans codes.
