If you want to know if someone at Nadeo is reading here, take a look down on the "Who is online" section (Nadeo guys are in orange). ;)
I hope the game will be available on boxed version, but the same problem can re-present while buying other environments. Maybe you can only download new environments, or buy apart boxed versions? :?:

Lets hope Nadeo does it like Telltale.

I bought Tales Of Monkey Island a while ago which was only distributed digitally. It had 5 episodes and an episode was released every month, When all was finished they sent the boxed version for just the cost of delivery.

Only, if TM2 envs will be released once a year then we'd have to wait 3 years for a box*. :o :lol:
(The box will probaly have SM and QM too)

*Assuming this info is correct and there will only be 3 envs:

for now, it is 9 environments, 3 TM2.
So if there ever will be a box then its still distributed online and will never hit a store's shelf.

Only realized that online distribution may be quite a disadvantage for Russia. If it'll be sold for the same price for everyone, that's certainly not a good news for me.
To explain the situation: economically, Russia is totally different from countries of western Europe, and this is why boxed games cost less here (TMUF costs less than 10 euros for example). European prices are simply unacceptable for most people here.

Yeah,but inly having the game digitally is bad, when something on your pc f**ks up and your data is gone... You'd have to buy the game again. About once in a year I reinstall my os. No prob, after that, I just stick in the TMUF CD and reinstall the game. Takes 5min. If I had to download it again, it would be pretty annoying... :x

Nobody stops you from writing the download to a dvd or another backup medium.
And as long as you have the key, i suppose you can re-download and/or re-install it.
