    any ideas, i know it's a long shot..

    I launch the app, introduction screen comes on for about a second then crashes to desktop

    very fast

    no error messages, no dont sends

    doesnt work for a lot of other people either, but i have no idea why

    Sounds like your graphics card doesn't support it!

    Is it going to be cheaper over steam? If that's the case then I'll cancel my pre-order;)

    not sure about that, but i think the pre-orders i've seen are like £40..

    thats limited edition though

    think i'll just wait for the actual release

    Btw, my mouse kept conking out whilst playing on full gfx again, done this with tombraider... i reckon it must happen more often when playing New games because it puts more stress on the gpu, which would drain the psu more, i.e. the mouse cuts out because it doesn't receive enough power.

    thats my speculation anyway...pfft.

    Mines £24.99 from play but that's just the normal version.

    Steam releases usually give a 10% discount if you pre-order and the game will probably be pre-installed and unlocked on the day of release.I see no mention of it anywhere being released over steam. Could I ask whaere your source is please (no pun intended:rotfl: ).
