  1. Am I mis-remembering how much is stored on a DVD? More than one DVD just for the game sounds like a ridiculous amount of data.

  2. That sounds right. Those high rez textures take up about half of the 2nd disc I bet. There are several gigs worth. But I never installed those since I can’t run mine on ultra-high anyway.

    I ordered this edition when I made my pre-order about two months ago. I don’t know the difference between “collector’s edition” and “special edition” I’m not sure what you meant by that … I just saw “more stuff” and am getting it :)

  3. A “collector’s edition” is usually limited quantities and expensive.
