No spy. Writer, researcher, IT person, occasional gentleman scientist. What limited gov’t contracting I did that required clearance was all physics simulations and coding, nothing super cool, unless you think fluid dynamics is neato.
Like I said, I’ve supported multiple retailers over the years, and PC CEs in the US sell fast. They’re highly desirable, generally of limited quantity (though not always! Tricksy hobbitses…) , and the target market has the money to get them. I’ve probably got two dozen CEs right now, at least, and I consider myself on the “more particular” level of that totem pole. Some folks I know will buy any CE for anything. There’s a lot of games that I’ll skip the CE and just pick up the title itself on a Steam sale or something similar. But as I’d gone into originally, Hitman 2016’s CE has a special place in my heart, and I love the style of the Hitman 2 CE.
Agreed about discs being breakable, though these days you’re almost always looking at just a digital code for Steam.
You know what we really should bring back?
The 3.5" floppy.
Hitman 4 (2022) PC Collector’s “Retro” Edition, Featuring 72,411 Floppy Disks!
Which I think would work out to approximately 1,230kg? You wanna talk about shipping costs…
