I just got off the phone with best buy and they are not participating with the pre-purchase only the pre-order. Well looks like I am off to game stop. They will pre-order them tomorrow but no keys. Unless things change today. But I doubt it.
It is listed on the https://buy.guildwars2.com/retailers for pre-purchase of the CE, if Best Buy doesn't offer a code then NCsoft should just offer up codes if you take a picture of your pre-purchase reciept and email it to them. If nothing else the CE is still available at GameStop, a lot of people don't see the CE being worth the 150 dollar price point, myself included and the only reason I was going to buy it from BB was because of rewardzone points and coupons otherwise I'd be buying the digital deluxe edition directly from NCSoft.

I hope so too. I'm kind confuse because bestbuy says they don't participate when guildwars2 on twitter said they do.
Bestbuy would make a lot of better money if they participate for pre-purchase according to one of website a lot of people (1000ppl) are awaits for decision from bestbuy. If bestbuy don't participate gamestop would make a lot of bucks because a lot of people prefers to shopps with BBY as well as me in my personal opinion. So Dear Bestbuy please consider that your decision will effect you financially and don't give Gamestop opportunity to earn easy money.

It is unclear at this point if the Collector's Edition will be pre-order or pre-purchase, but basically the message I wanted to get out is that we are working on getting you the pre-purchase offers with it.

Guild Wars 2 fans!
Our digital versions are now live on BestBuy.com for pre-purchase! They are "fresh out of the oven" so they aren't pulling up with a BestBuy.com search quite yet but the following links will take you right there:
We've been working so quickly to get these available for you that we don't even have images uploaded yet - those should be up soon. Don't be deterred by the bareness though, they are in fact the legitimate Guild Wars 2 digital products.
Pre-purchasing either of those will immediately deliver a code to redeem the Beta, 3 day head start, “Hero’s Band” digital bonus and the full game. The full game is not available until launch, which does not yet have a date.

Finally I see some progress and I'm happy about that Just can't wait to see CE of Guild Wars 2. By the way Kyle the CE of GW2 will be available at midnight today which is from Thursday into Friday?
04-12-2012 02:25 PM
Our original ETA of Friday for the CE is no longer accurate due to the recent developments with getting the digital download version up right away. I don't have a new ETA for you but I will keep everyone posted as I hear more.

will there be a pre purchase option for a physical box copy of a standard edition of guild wars 2 or is it only the standard edition digital download that will carry pre purchase bonuses?
04-12-2012 03:17 PM
I decided to be the guinea pig and pre-purchase the standard edition from the link Kyle posted in his previous post. I haven't received my code yet to register the purchase on the offical Guild Wars 2 site to gain access to the beta. I will let you guys know if I get it lol.
Kyle how long is it suppose to take to receive the code? I know on your post it says immediatly but nothing has showed up yet in my inbox.

Fera6037 - We are still working on potential options for the physical versions so I don't have specifics quite yet.
For those of you that have placed their order already, thank you for choosing us! I have located verified that your orders haven't fulfilled yet and I am reaching out with a priority request to find out why. I apologize for this inconvenience and can assure you I will stick with it until it is resolved and you have your code. Hang tight.
