No Disc in Might & Magic Heroes VII Collector's Edition

This reddit thread and this thread on the Ubisoft forums reflect discontent among some purchasers of the Might & Magic Heroes VII Collector's Edition after they discovered this does not contain a game disc, but rather includes a code to download the strategy sequel. It was never explicitly stated that there would be a game disc, but a PC DVD logo on the listing on the Official Ubisoft Online Store (perhaps referring to the soundtrack) suggested this, and one of the perks of the CE is actually a collector's box to hold the nonexistent disc. There are a few responses from Ubisoft community management, but these seem isolated to those having trouble downling the game from Uplay. Thanks Darren.

Sounds close to the MGSV physical release having a disk with only a steam installer on it.

EDIT: Wow. Apparently the EU version is shipping with disks.

Of course. Because of those totally unfair (to big companies) user protection rights in the EU, they had to actually ship the disks. But don't be afraid, with TTIP the EU consumer rights will be killed off and everything will be as great for consumers as in the US. Can I hear you jumping up and down shouting HOORAY? Or is that USA! USA!?

I used to love the Heroes Series, so it pains me to say it, but, if you play anything by Ubisoft, you deserve whatever you get (or, don't get).

Heroes of Might and Magic 5 was the last Ubi thing purchased here, having seen anything from them since that made me want to buy it. Though even if there was something Uplay is a deal breaker, not to mention the companies attitude.

It's time PC retail starts shipping games on some format that's more logical for PC gamers.

BR format never really got adopted enough on the PC (plus Sony is behind that format, who Microsoft don't get along with); since HD-DVD format failed (which Microsoft was behind); and game-downloads became more popular here (thanks to Steam, Origin, GOG and other services - and much better pricing sales than what retail often offers).

Even putting games a huge GB laced thumb-drive that contains the entire game would make more sense than this crap. That certainly would have games taking up less space on the shelves than even a slim-DVD case, as well - which retail surely would love.

And likely, most people have a USB port to stick a thumb-drive in.

You might prefer the stoneage, but digital delivery is all there is going to be in a few short years except for a few niche markups markets.

I'm sure everybody prefers having their games on disc.

But, for those who are well-connected and like the excellent sales we often get here digitally - retail is a waste to even think of. Only time retail might be worth while to us is when a game is on major clearance and/or blow-out sale.

Problem seems to be, especially on the PC, at retail is that they keep sticking them on DVD's. That's especially even worse for the bigger-sized games. Who the heck wants to install 30+ GB games from on a ridiculous # of DVD's? What I'd do if they did the above that is just take my retail copy and if it connects to a service (like Steam, Origin, UPlay, etc) - I'll just let it do the download and go do something else for a while like watch a movie, TV show, or something else.

Well seeing as how that's what we did with floppies and cds...

And people on Google fiber probably don't give a shit, but on my terrible connection it's much faster to write from a disc than to download anything.

But wouldn't you rather have it on say one thumb-drive or a Blu-Ray than multiple-DVD's?

Who wants to deal w/ disc-switching on the install? Bleh.

Some guys didn't even get that, had to contact support and wait up to a week for the game to be added/activated for them.

Stating that there's a disc(logo) and no disc inside could actually fall into the realm of false advertising. Just for anyone who wants to run with it.

Heh, a "game lawyer" (pretty sure how he referred to himself in thread) had posted in the Ubisoft forum thread linked in the article asking for any concerned/wronged parties to contact him.

It was deleted pretty quickly.
