was hoping this thread would be a poll that i could see all the options available.

deluxe cd for me. that's all ive gotten since ATYCLB with the bonus disc <feat. Always>, HTDAAB <with Fast Cars as the bonus track and the DVD>, NLOTH
<the set with the DVD and the book and poster> then SOI with the 2nd disc of songs.

what's the deluxe for this? i know i saw it has 3 extra songs and the japanese version has more.

I absolutely won't be shelling out for a deluxe/super deluxe or box set or whatever they call these additional versions.

The sale of this upcoming album has taken on an infomerical marketing quality. "But wait...for just a mere $X more you get the Super Deluxe edition blue collectors edition vinyl - and we will throw in a free poster!".

It is probably true of a lot of artists but i personally think it is a piss take how they hawk all these different versions - which they do safe in the knowledge that completists and super fans will but regardless of the pricing - pricing i think is obscene.

I wanted the Super Deluxe until I saw the price ... I've instead bought the standard Vinyl and bought a fancy bottle of Rum

Smart play.  That's what I'm doing.  I don't need any more U2 posters or special edition cardboard boxes or other goo-gaws. As I understand it the music on the deluxe cd which was selling for 18 bucks on Amazon is the same as the super deluxe stuff - album plus four extra tracks, one of which is a remix of ordinary love and another is the Kygo TBT remix.

I'll probably buy the deluxe edition CD version. More tracks equals more U2 goodness.
I love Rock N' Roll...so I booked a room at the heartbreak hotel and there, the music plays on and on.

To be fair, regular CD and Deluxe CD are both reasonably priced, itís only the vinyls that are outrageous. They know where the big money comes from.

Why is the standard vinyl $30 through Universal Music's website and $40 through U2.com?
I feel my luck could change.

I pre-ordered the deluxe edition from iTunes, that's the only version I'll likely own.
