Ok, just to confirm. If i buy this game at Best Buy on friday, the box will just have a map and a code to activate on steam?

I would normally buy it on steam but i have a $50 BB gift card. So as long as it will end up no different than if i'd just bought on steam, thats what i'll do.

Thanks

It will have disks as well, it'll be added to steam when you actually run and register it.

Yeah the discs will be nice for a future impulse reinstall, but don't forget that you will be able to preload 2-3 days before release =P

You also have to leave the house. Scary stuff.

Usually I'd say, "I'd much rather have the discs because that way you don't spend hours and hours waiting for the game to download THEN install."

...
But Skyrim is only 6 gigs... so that's not really an issue.

Regardless, I'm getting the box because I got $25 off... which I wouldn't have gotten on Steam.
