At first, I found it crazy that people are still playing World of Warcraft after all this time, but then I recalled the fact that I'm still playing Animal Crossing: City Folk after a couple years, and that's a solo game for the most part! At least the people playing WoW are playing with each other!
The reason I was thinking about Blizzard's MMORPG is because it's about to get a little bigger with the announcement that the fourth expansion, Mists of Pandaria, is due out on September 25. Whether you buy the PC or Mac version in stores or digitally online, it'll run you $39.99. And no matter which option you choose, you can still upgrade to the Digital Deluxe version for an extra $20. The Digital Deluxe version includes a full digital copy of the expansion plus an in-game mount, an in-game pet, StarCraft II Battle.net portraits, and a Diablo III Banner sigil and accent.
But wait, there's more! There is also a retail Collector's Edition that will run you $79.99 and contains all the digital content of the Digital Deluxe edition as well as a behind the scenes DVD and Blu-ray, a soundtrack CD, The Art of Mists of Pandaria book, and a Chen Stormstout mouse pad.
Okay, so to recap: You can buy the Mists of Pandaria expansion in a store or online. You can also upgrade either of those versions with the Digital Deluxe version, or opt to just go all out and buy the retail Collector's Edition that includes every last goodie. Got it?
