because the press copy was not a complete version, but we
just got it today (Collectors Edition, which was 55.99 at EB,

out! They don't have many, so get that free CD quick! We'll
take a picture of the contents of the Collectors version, but
here's what you get: the CD's - on special Gold format, a pad
of BG2 paper, some great trading cards, a very nice cloth map
of Amn, and a bonus CD (not the EB one) that adds some
special powerful items, and an NPC.
