The most anticipated PlayStation 4 / PlayStation 5 game of the year, Ragnarok God of War The console will be unveiled on November 9. Those looking forward to purchasing the special edition are definitely looking to secure the Ragnarok Collector’s or Ragnarok Jotnar Editions, but will be saddened to know that these editions of the game are just a digital download code and not a physical disc. Those still looking to collect physical media will either have to buy the game full-price at launch or wait months or years for it to go on sale.

This is despite the fact that each version comes with a steelbook collector’s case that is only added as a decorative piece and does not actually store the game disc. like Horizon Forbidden West Collector’s and Regalla Editions, why is Sony insisting on not including physical discs with special editions of their games?

what are Ragnarok God of War Special editions?

If you preorder Ragnarok God of WarYou can either opt for the Digital Deluxe Edition God of War Ragnarok Collector’s EditionOr God of War Ragnarok Jotnar Edition. When Ragnarok God of War With the release date announced, we’ve broken down what comes in each collection, which includes a download copy of the digital version of the game, a handful of extras, but no physical disc, despite the core of each special edition being a steelbook. why this

why not Ragnarok God of War Will the Jotnar Edition come with a physical disc?

At first, I thought physical media was lacking Ragnarok God of War Jotnar and collector’s editions may have more to do with the number of items in the box. These boxes are time consuming to put together and they have already produced some as we saw Sony release an unboxing video shortly after the announcement. So Ragnarok Gold doesn’t hit until a few weeks before launch, making it difficult for them to package a disc with all these boxes. That being said, many other games in the past have managed logistical gymnastics like this, so why can’t Sony?

A more practical reason, which I hypothesized above Horizon Forbidden West Special Editions, meaning the game is being cross-released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, so these editions should include discs for both consoles or just PS4 and then players can take the $10.00 upgrade route if they want to update to the PS5 version. ? The fact that Sony trusts Generations and then does everything to prove that it doesn’t trust Generations makes the release cycle of these games even more difficult. The PS5 will be two years old by the time we hit it Ragnarok God of War release date, and the company is still developing games to run on the PS4, a console that was first released in 2013.

It’s possible that when Sony fully commits to the PlayStation 5 and stops supporting the PS4 we’ll have more physical media available in collector’s editions, but I still think it’s unlikely. It’s ultimately cheaper for Sony to provide a download code than to package a physical disc, and they have no problem selling special editions of their biggest games, not that enough players are refusing to buy special editions for lack of it. of the physical disk. Unfortunately, the days of physical media seem numbered. And paradoxically, we could see a future where the inclusion of a physical version of a game *is a special perk of the collector’s edition as the studio transitions to a mostly digital future.

The Ragnarok God of War The Collector’s Edition costs $199.99 and will be easier to purchase than the Jotnar Edition despite its lower price. Of course, charging 3-4 times the price of the base game isn’t something many take lightly, and for that high price point the question still remains: Why not?

Are collector’s editions ever useful?

Either way or not Ragnarok God of War Whether Jotnar or Collector’s Editions are worth it is up to each player. Personally, as really cool as some of the items in those versions are, it’s not worth spending several times the price of the game to buy them. I will be very happy with my base Ragnarok God of War A digital edition when the game launches, and in a few years I’ll buy a physical copy on sale to add to my game collection.

The way I see it, a fan doesn’t get to decide how much they can afford to spend on a franchise. Someone to spring for Ragnarok God of War Jotnar Edition is more or less a fan of the franchise, buying only the base game. We are all here to experience the same story. Extra is just that: extra.
