Can't you always sell Collector's Editions on eBay a year later for twice what you paid for them when it comes to Blizzard games? I don't have the money to spend on it, and I have no interest in buying Diablo 3 in any case, but I probably would otherwise for that reason alone.
I did that with the first WoW expansion. I preordered it for $80, but ended up having it shipped to someone on eBay who paid me $180 for it! I kept a second copy to sell later...I ended up getting $40 for it about a year or two down the road. So, you never really know.

I *completely* disagree with the notion that physical media is going to somehow disappear. The nearly 1000 movies I have in my collection prove nicely that some of us will always want to own the item, be able to hold it in our hands, and will never purchase movies in an electronic format.
You will when that's the only option possible. Just because you(and others) don't like doesn't mean it won't happen, although it may take longer than everyone thinks to happen.
I did enjoy Mass Effect, and after finishing it I figured I would go back and play it again at some point. Then I played ME2 and felt it was no doubt the superior game. I'll play THAT one again at some point, but I don't think I could go back to Mass Effect.
Just got back. Thought it was a decent ending to the series, but I thought, like how they handled the demise of Dumbledore, that it lacked a certain emotional oomph. I'll put the rest in spoiler tags...
Spoiler for Hiden:
I thought the parts with Snape were great. They handled that really well. The movie kind of launched right into the finale it seems, which makes sense as it's half a movie, really. That makes it difficult for this one to stand on its own, though. One of the best parts of the movie was the way they handled the dragon. You could see him desperately wanting freedom. And when he burst out of Gringott's, he showed more emotion than most of the actors showed. I'm good about separating movies from books, but this movie could really have used an extra 10-20 minutes of important stuff from the book. They should have showed Fred dying with a smile on his face. They should have showed Harry dueling Voldemort in the room with all the students watching. As it was, that was a pretty anti-climactic death for Voldemort. Poof, he's gone, and Harry walks back in and no one even asks what happened? They should have shown Hagrid sobbing about the death of Harry. The scene at King's Cross with Dumbledore was particularly wooden and unemotional. And at the very end Harry should have mentioned that his scar hasn't hurt for 19 years and that all was well. There were some nice emotional moments, like Ron crying over Fred, but this was a huge series finale - there should have been more.

JK Rowling has gone on record she is done writing about Harry & Co.
According to Wikipedia(take it for what you will):
As regards the possibility of an eighth Harry Potter book, she has said, "I can't say I'll never write another book about that world just because I think, what do I know, in ten years' time I might want to return to it but I think it's unlikely." However, on 1 October 2010, Rowling had an interview with Oprah Winfrey, stating a new book on the saga might happen.
Agreed. All I hear is complaining about how hard the game is and how poorly programmed it is to be so difficult at early levels.
This game may have a lot of content, but "fun" so far hasn't been part of that content. I've tried preliminary quests to level up my character and wind up dying. I've tried exploring, but wind up dying. I've tried using VATS, but end up dying. Seriously, WTF is with this game? So far it seems overrated and unworthy of its praise.
I think the problem is probably you and how you play it. Let's be honest, you sound like you are terrible at it. While I died several times playing the game(and I played it ALOT), it never got so bad that I started questioning whether the game was any good.
Thanks for the feedback! St. Augustine sounds pretty good to me. We should be able to get there by early afternoon and be able to enjoy the day there. I think that's what we'll do! (Thanks for the beach tip, Cortilian!)
I had previously considered the Space Museum but was scared off a little by the step price tag($41 per person). Sure, we're blowing millions at Disney world already, but that seemed like a lot for an afternoon at the museum.
My wife and 2 daughters and I are driving to South Carolina this summer to visit family for a few days and from there are driving down the coast, eventually ending up at our favorite place in the universe, Walt Disney World. Since we are driving instead of flying, we wanted to have a few beach days at the ocean. We'll get one in SC, but also would like to have one in Florida somewhere on our way to WDW.
The current plan is to drive the 5 hours or so from Charleston to Daytona Beach, spend the rest of the day and night there and then proceed to Orlando some time the next day. But I only picked Daytona because it's well known. What I would really be interested in is some other awesome coastal town somewhere between Jacksonville and Daytona(or maybe a little south of Daytona). All we're really looking for is some beach time and then maybe something fun to do for the evening.
Any suggestions, or should I just stick with Daytona?

I'm also at a point in the campaign, further along then you were metallic and I'm getting a hard lock every time I load the saved game. I didn't read anything about this issue in the reviews...
Yikes, I think I might concentrate more on MP for now and wait for a patch.
I got a great deal on Crysis 2 and couldn't pass it up. I'm really pleased with it so far, although I continue to be awful in the MP. Really bad, like 1 kills/13 deaths kind of stuff. When I finally got 9 kills/10 deaths I was celebrating.
I rarely buy new games until they price drop, but this is too good to pass up. KMart is selling Crysis 2 for the consoles with a $10 credit(on their store rewards cards) and $30 off a 4000 point LIVE(Or equivalent PS3card) card. So, if you figure you'd buy the points eventually anyway(at full price), you're getting the game for $20. That's good enough for me.
As far as I understand it, the $30 off is not store credit, so we're talking about spending an actual $80 today and walking out with Crysis 2, 4000 points and a $10 credit. The store credit does not need to be used on video games, so you can waltz right over to grocery and buy donuts or something.
