Default Will the boxed version come out at the same time as the Steam version?

I realize no one knows the answer (except for possibly those with insider contacts), but I just want to throw this out there.

I mean, we're still expecting (hoping for) a November release, right? And yet the only place we can pre order it so far is Steam. I haven't seen the boxed version available on any online retail stores, which makes me worry that it might come some time after the Steam release.

Just thinking out loud. I'd like to get the boxed version just for the sake of having the box, but if it'll be available first on Steam...

Well, we know the game went gold... when was it? Tuesday last week? So I see no reason for them to be released at a different time. Isn't this true for almost all games that are released through both Steam and retail?

I wouldn't say we know the game went gold, since that statement was retracted by Devolver Digital. That is, unless you know more than we do.

Yeah most games have Steam releases that coincide with their retail release, but the problem is it doesn't even seem like the retail stores know the game is going to exist. You can usually pre order games for quite some time before they're released.

I suppose the retail versions could just appear online a few days before release, but I've never seen that happen before. Seems like it would seriously hinder their sales not to allow a proper window for pre-ordering.

I haven't seen a single listing anywhere for a US boxed release.

I pretend it is, because NO ONE knows...I mean, everyone knows there might be a delay, or it may hit at the unexpected time. I just pretend I know when it's gonna come.

Once again... CD-ROM version? Also, WinXP/WinVista... what about Win7? I am aware about the "WinXP mode" thing in Win7, but shouldn't have to do that, huh?

It's pretty much bad for business if a games developer can't make their latest games work on the latest OS

It's usually "Xp, Vista or newer".

It doesn't have to work on Win7, because it's new, but it does.

I'd guess that was probably just a poor choice of stock graphics. I'd be very surprised if they released it on CD, as that's pretty much unheard of these days..
