The UK DVD-Rom isnt a special edition, if (like me) you've ordered it from amazon all you get are (I assume) the bronze features.

Also the 'free' t-shirt you get from the gold edition comes in one size and one size only, extra-large :/.

Im guessing the following version from play is the CD edition rather than the DVD. Anyone got any good links for the DVD version?
