    Why don't you just allow the Pet Shop features in every game, and not just the Limited Edition? From what you claim, the Limited Edition will cost the same as the Standard Edition. So... you won't be getting more money if you include the Pet Shop or not, so why not enable it to everyone? I hope you understand what I'm trying to say, because I sure don't understand the mechanics behind this Limited Edition.

    Thanks. :) (and I hope what I said makes sense!!)

    So true! Graham listen to this and answer! (If he already answered why could you post a link to which page number)

    Even though this has been covered more than enough times. Yes the Limited Edition may cost the same, but it is for a limited time in EA may get get money because it is a limited item and EA may make good money on the first first rounds of sales. It may look stupid or whatever, but you have to look outside the box being after the first day of release the limited editions are no more. EA is not going to answer and if it did not by now don't expect one now.

    For those in the UK. I have previously bought from Play.com after the launch date, when they had L.E. pre-order rights. They sent me a L.E. version. If they still have unsold copies they will send you a L.E. version.

    Also if you follow each release of an expansion pack, you will notice that the right to sell the L.E. version is alternated between the major game sellers. Sometimes, Play.com then Game etc.

    I understand why they did it like that being consoles do not have the processing power of a PC yet. It is like a tradeoff and they had to do something for the console being not every console owner owns a PC as well.

    The Limited Edition has more Skins for the pets i believe like the panda dog and such but yea doesn't make sense

    what you said completely makes sense, but what EA is doing makes no sense what so ever!! whoever came up with this 'scheme' should be fired

    Phew :XD: Seriously though... I fail to understand what they're doing behind it all. So, I believe there's a part here they're not telling us. No? I mean, c'mon. They wouldn't just give a whole new game feature pretty much for free. :lol:

    If you ordered it from origin, ur going to get the limited edition. If you like, orded it from gamestop, I depends. If They dont have the limited edition by the time it gets shipped to you, u get the regular version. If they get it before the time they need to ship it out, all orders get changed to limited edition.

    I got this off of a discusion group so im not sure if its true

    I hope this helped!!!

    Depends on the site you ordered from, some sites do list Pets a limited edition. However, try reading the summary of the game and if it mentions a special venue more than likely it is a limited edition. Also, if you live in the US/Canada all Pets pre-ordered and first day will be limited editions. :D

    Not on this thread. This thread is made for players who want to know about the Limited Edition Pet Store and whether it's available in their country. You can ask questions about gameplay in other threads, though.

    It depends on when you ordered it, if you ordered it on oct 15 and you do not get it until the 24th it would still be a limited edition. If you ordered the day after release then you would a standard edition. The title should say Limited Edition and after the day of release it would or should not specify Limited Edition which would now mean it is a standard edition. Unlike how they did Medieval the title did not say special editon and the only way you knew you got one is by a code that was pkg'ed with the game.

    Will the pets' genetics work similarly to the sims' genetics? i.e. will the offspring inherit traits from their parents? Their breed, their colour? I wonder what will happen if two very different animals (different breed, colour and size) are bred together...

    well this clears things up but it has also made me ponder over the fact that 'certain' retailers will stock the limited edition ...will these retailers be in Adelaide, Australia?? :/
    all eb games stores in australia that i know of will be stocking the limited edition, i preordered mine the other day and it said on the eb games online store that it will be the limited edition they will be posting to you if you preorder & i have also heard if you go to eb games to the store on the day they will also have limited edition on shelf but only for 1 day but im not really sure if this is true :/ good luck
