Thanks Balmung421.

Notes:
-Someone was able to buy it from GameStop for $40.
-It's still not clear if this is an f2p retail bundle. Note the digital content availability thing on the bottom of the image as well as the fact it's called "Origins Edition".

Hype! Hope it's good, looks really cool from what I've seen. I wonder if it will be 60fps on consoles. Would be nice.

I'd be shocked. Sony and Microsoft aren't into that idea when they're both involved.

Has Blizzard commented on whether you can link accounts across consoles? I prefer playing on PS4 but most my friends will be on PC

Keeps in line with the closed beta continuing through the year. Now I wonder if this will grant PC players closed beta access.

No chance of that happening, would be too much of an advantage.

The "_______ Edition" naming scheme really implies this is just a retail presence for the game + bonus content.

I imagine it's the base game, plus enough premium outfits, skins, premium currency, etc to justify the price.

It'll still be F2P, I anticipate.

Didn't think of that lol.

This'll probably feel weird on a gamepad in general.

My guess as well. This going is going to be massive on all platforms.

That's what I'm thinking since Blizzard already does that with Heroes of the Storm.

It will follow the HOTS model, hopefully no restriction on heroes though - really doubt it as that makes and breaks the chances of winning.
