They send out the platinum release. I know some people are picky over which version they add to their collection.
Was just thinking the same thing and just came back to the thread to see if anyone knew if this was the case!

Shame pic is of original release that was one of the reasons i posted it.... good info mate cheers
Wouldn't the platinum edition include extra content though, despite the less attractive packaging? Could I ask how you know it's the platinum edition, by the way?
You'll know its the platinum edition if your friends point at you and laugh.
Do they always send out the platinum version. Because given the picture and the info, that would be quite naughty.

They should at least mention it.
Great deal, heat added! good game...ideal for something to keep you occupied before getting Revelations.

Because I ordered this from Dixons a few weeks ago and received the platinum version.

As you point out though, the platinum version comes with extra content. Even if you're a platinumist it's worth buying the platinum version and perhaps putting it in a paper bag underneath your bed if you really can't stomach the sight of it!

Well i suppose its better than the annoying CEX, platinum disc in a normal case shenanigans. Still I think I will return it with a rude email.

The local game shop (Disks & discs in Stafford, hopefully they google themselves!) does do something REALLY irritating though, they attach the price stickers to the paper covers of games then reinsert them, with some sort of unpeelable hyper-glue. Often too, if you are really unlucky on the spines, booklets and front. Good luck getting those suckers off without ruining the cover! It is a real pity as they stock brilliant import games, retro stuff and seem to have sensible used prices!

I am picky about these too, not sure why to be honest, however surely that's classed as false advertising?
Great PS3 deal here:

PS3 + Battlefield 3 + Fifa 12 = £199.99 (bargain!!)

When i emailed them they claimed the image was for display purposes only. I think it may be false advertising but there needs to be a significant number of complaints before they'll do anything and i imagine people that care about this are in the significant minority. Rule of thumb i suppose is that if you're really irritated by platinum cases you should buy on ebay or amazon, but they're usually a little on the expensive side, and if you're a regular to this site you're probably not looking to pay through the nose for an old game that comes without a chunk of content that the much cheaper platinum version contains.

Thanks for the tip about the Platinum thing. Abandoned order.
Ordered. If I get the Platinum edition I will not give a rats ass. Seriously you would have to be a bit of a gimp to care.

To all of you anti-Platinumists, if you care enough, put in a complaint to the ASA. They now monitor websites and issues such as this seem to prevail amongst the big retailer sites.
Got mine today.... Platinum version

Is the extra content worth putting up with the hideous case/artwork?

Nope - mines going straight back!
Good luck with the stupidly annoying returns policy. Had to fight to post it back, they wanted to send a courier. Dixons are now in my never order from box.
