    Collection just turned up, simple DVD case and Manual isn't much to run home about, for some reason the manual covers not just the PC keyboard layout but the 360 controller layout, no mention of PS3 controller and its only 8 pages.

    Mixnmojos quote is on the back of the DVD case which is great news to see.

    Its one installer so both SE get installed onto your hard drive and a launcher which shows you the features. Trying to get some screenshots if I can.

    Amazon.de has updated the product description.
    Sprachausgabe: Eine komplette Sprachausgabe von Mitgliedern des original Monkey Island-Teams bringt die Geschichte und die Charaktere zum Leben wie nie zuvor. Hinweis: Das Spiel ist in englischer Sprachausgabe mit deutschen Untertiteln.

    So it's just subtitles for the German folks, and the suggestion of the "original team" was nothing more than a direct translation from English.

    I see that there is no mac compatibility with the pc vers.

    Well that's disappointing.

    Turns out quite a lot of concept art, and the complete story board for the MI film is included, and it's awesome. It takes place before Secret, and includes an un-un-dead Murray, and LeChuck as a human. Guybrush is a Mighty Fisherman by profession.
  • edited September 2011
    Wow. I always wondered what a human Murray would be like.

    *wishes he had money*

    Releasedate: October 31

    ???

    In some other german stores you can find the same thing. Now some people are saying, this could be the version with german voice over. :mad::confused:

    Whatever, why don't we get some clearly information?

    By the way, the PS3 Version has a bug. Everytime you shut down your PS3 you have to install the game once again. :mad:

    Well, they aren't MP3s you can just throw on your iPod... you can actually only play them through the game's launcher (and stupidly switching to another window while it plays mutes the music). There are ways though to extract the music from the data files and convert it to whatever format you like. We're discussing this over at Mojo as well.

    As for "properly done", yeah, they're properly mixed, mastered and (in case of MI2's iMuse-stuff) edited.

    Does it have copy protection? If so, what kind?

    The PS3 comes with a free Voodoo Doll for Playstation Home.

    I would not buy the PS3 Version. That installation bug sucks.

    Is this hardcopy version only being sold in Europe? Or has there been one released for the states previously?

    I let my guard down for a second and they come out with something I want to buy. :p

    Yeah, this one is a Europe exclusive. PC games don't have a region lock, though, so you could always import it. It's worth it just for the soundtrack and the movie storyboards, in my opinion.

    Yeah, I had to import it but it's really worth doing so.

    Did the people who imported this in, just get it off eBay?

    The special edition collection comes with the official soundtracks, which are only playable in a program included with the bundle.

    However, bgbennyboy released the Monkey Island Music Extractor which extracts the music from the extract the music from the launcher.pak file into individual music files so you can use the digital soundtrack wherever you like. :)
