I still own the box of the first AOE version from 1997. This box has become a collectors item. Instead of selling AOE DE just only through the Windows Store, Microsoft should consider to sell a retail boxed version. That means it contains a XBOX Live code with which you can redeem the AOE DE game in the Windows Store.
A boxed versiÃ³n like the old one which had the manual, quick reference card and such stuff. But of course, it would cost a bit more than digital versiÃ³n.
Yes, exactly like that. And of course some kind of redeem code. Some higher cost is no problem.
@PCS70 Below is a link to a thread discussing the possibility of a Collector’s Edition or Anniversary Edition of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition if you would like to join in on the conversation.
@rhrmn thanks for pointing out and yes for sure I would like to add my 2 cents.
