    In the past you had the chance to choose between Nintendo guides and Prima guides. Nintendo guides usually were cheaper and lacked content. I guess the sales in their own guides really sucked, so Nintendo no longer makes their own guides. Prima is the main source now.

    I already have the collecter's edition on pre-order and can't wait till it comes out. I hate how Prima has month long waiting period between the Walkthrough strategy guide and the Pokedex strategy guide. I just checked their official site and the Pokedex comes out on April 25th. Basically this edition cuts out the month in between Walkthrough and Pokedex guide.

    On one end, they'res something oddly satisfying about looking at a physical guide for help rather than going online.

    However, I don't really recall needing a guide too much during Pokemon Diamond....and the odd time I did need help I just looked quickly on serebii/bulbapedia. Usually I'm only ever looking for details on where a pokemon is found/when it evolves etc.

    So I'll pass I think.

    Seems neat, but I'll probably stick with the 20 dollar one than the overpriced collector's edition.

    Man, Black and White just has me so stoked. I hope it gets good game reviews, too.

    I don't see the point in selling the main game guide and selling post game as a different guide. They started that dumb shit with HGSS and it looks they will be continuing it.

    Guide books tend to suck. The internet generally has information guide books don't cover.

    yeah, but guide books have pictures!

    I'm a sucker for that kind of thing.

    Do you think the collecter's edition will include attack and ability information or will they be saving that for the 2nd volume.

    Will buy collector's edition if I'm able to just not spend any money at all in February. Otherwise just the basic. How would I live without game guides? That's a scary idea.

    They're useful when you don't have a computer in your room.
    Plus I like to know how to do things ahead of time, and, the dex is going to have Sugimori's art in it, so it's worth it.

    I'm always a sucker for anything that has a collectable value to it :p, and I always like to have a physical guide for quick reference if I don't have my computer or phone nearby.

    If you check Amazon right now, you can pre-order the collector's edition for a little less than the standard edition.

    Note: Hurry, they could change the price again!

    Edit: Amazon is also selling the standard edition for lesser.

    I bought the guide for Diamond and Pearl Volume 1. While it was handy while I was in the main adventure, its now collecting dust. Especially since I use the internet for everything now. Volume 2, the "entire" Pokedex, was better. I don't like them splitting up the guides like this. Having a separate book for the Pokedex makes sense, but putting the information for after the game in the same book was stupid. I might just buy the Pokedex book this time around.

    I'll probably buy the guide when it's available. Haven't decided which one yet, though. Depends how much money I feel like spending at the time.

    I only use/check these guides if I'm seriously stuck on something.
