Yeah the CE version of this game isn't that great. When I found out the strategy guide was in digital form, I stopped caring about missing it, and got the regular edition from the midnight launch. Demons Souls CE actually came with a hard copy mini strategy guide. Wish I had pre-ordered the CE though, just so I could get a $20 gift card when it didn't arrive. The game is awesome by the way. I only played it for an hour last night. The first thing I noticed is the graphics are definitely a notch above Demons Souls. Everything looks a little crisper.
