Hi:
Any suggestions on where best to buy the standard edition Guild Wars II "disc-in-box" retail version in NZ when GW2 goes live on the 28th Aug.? 
Hmm, don't see many posts on Guild Wars, wonder if it's popular on Geek Zone.
Thanks..

Try pbtech? I think it's $79 on their site. (It's ~$75NZ if you buy it for $60USD off the official site, but also factor in having to download it)

I always buy online from MightyApe they seem to always be able to provide the game on your doorstep day of play.

It's 50 & 55NZ online for standard/deluxe digital @ CDKeys Wharehouse, you could get that, 3-day headstart and pay the difference it would cost you in store in bandwidth fee's if that's the reason you need boxed?

Thx Guys:

Yep, I need the box (CD) to avoid wireless mobile bandwidth data fees.

Appreciate the comments..

PS:  If you are on (for example) Vodafone wireless mobile data 3G, they want like $79 for the first 3GB, so it might be a bit on the expensive side downloading 25-27GB over this system.

Thanks again for the advice..  might go for the simple box set and then at least if I have to ever re-install, much of the data will be there on disc.. cheers.

For any Mac users out there, an official Mac beta is now available. Time for me to actually start looking at GW2 now! :)
