Questions about the Collector's DVD

posted by Rubik on - last edited - Viewed by 514 users

I have a few questions about the SBCG4AP collector's DVD.

Question One: As someone who purchaced each SBCG4AP game on the Wii, I know there is no way to prove that I own all five games. Will the collector's DVD be available for purchace to those who have not bought the game on the computer?

Question Two: What can we expect to find on the Collector's DVD?

Question Three: If the Collector's DVD will be available for purchace, how much will it cost?

Question Four: Approximately what part of 2009 will the collector's DVD be released in?

  • 1) Sorry, the disc is only going to be free for people who bought the PC version from the website. We just don't have any way to do that for Wii purchasers.

    2) We haven't decided on extras yet. We'll be meeting to plan this out in more detail soon.

    3) $34.95, since it comes with the PC season set.

    4) Not sure yet, sorry! It partly depends on the answer to #2 :)

    I think for #1 he means will there be a way for Wii owners to get the disc even if it's not free. Like maybe one with just the bonus content but not the games themselves.

    We probably won't do two discs, both because that takes more time than you'd think to make (and test), and because it becomes expensive quickly. It's pretty unlikely that we'll be able to do a special for Wii owners (we have no way of knowing who is actually a Wii customer) -- we haven't got any plans for such a thing -- but I wouldn't rule anything out 100%. It's a free country, etc.

  • Don't you mean, Free Country, USA?



    Gah, even I thought that was a horrible pun.

  • That's... not really a pun?

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to the DVD. I really liked the job you guys did on Sam and Max Season 2's.

  • Might not be a pun, but it's load of phun.

    I'm sure that it would be appreciated if you could eventually release a version with only bonus content. Wii users paid extra money for season, yet they are ineligable for the bonus content without buying the entire season again. I know that you'll rack up extra money by requiring fans who bought the season on the Wii to buy the entire season again, but by doing so, you'll inconvenience your customers.

  • Racking up extra money really isn't the primary reason, believe me. Making these discs isn't as easy as I think people believe it to be, and there are major logistical problems with distributing discs to people who didn't buy through our purchase system. Sorry man :(

  • so, i guess, if something like a bonus disc for the wii should be made, it would be up to nintendo to pull it off. right?
    let's say there will be a retail release for the wii version than nintendo should be able to offer wiiware customers a discount on it. don't know, if they're into stuff like this though...

    I wasn't accusing you of trying to get extra money, just saying that although finding a solution would be more work, it would be appriciated. Would it be possible to put the copy of the game on one disk and the bonus on another? That way, those who bought the season online could get both disks at the cost of shipping and handling. Then, the bonus disk could be avaliable for purchase seperately.
