I got my Collector's Edition from ebay (I actually got two from there) and both were unopened.

And the X-COM Ufo Defense which comes with the Collector's Edition runs just fine in Win XP :confused: (you might need to patch made by f0dder at http://f0dder.has.it)

Terror from the Deep works as a charm as well.

Apocalypse is a bit harder tho, haven't gotten that running yet.

If you don't find any at ebay, chech half.com

or.. hmm.. milsims.. it's an australian place, can't recall the url now tho.

On amazon they also have zshops, there you can buy stuff from shops who sell through amazon, if you fill in x-com collectors edition and press search then on the bottom are the zshops and auctions.

I just checked and they have a used and a new copy for sale.

thanks for the info much appreciated, :confused: looking at now, and i like what i see. shame about the 1-2week wait but should be worth it. X-com is unique i've only seen a game like it once before and it was no way as good.
