I closed the poll asking what version of Cataclysm you WoW players out there are buying. Let’s look at the results, shall we?

Ok, let’s take out the 14% of voters who don’t play WoW. That leaves us with 976 votes, and the percents are recast:

Collector’s Edition:  33%
Physical retail Standard Edition: 25%
Digital: 24%
CE, but just want the pet really: 9%
Undecided: 8%

(There were some unrounded decimals in there, adding up to a missing 1%)

Now let’s take out the undecided, for a total of 894 votes, and combine the two CE’s and the two SE’s together:

Collector’s Edition: 414 votes, 46%
Standard Edition: 480, 54%

The Standard Editions win! Congratulations. Spend the $40 you save on something sensible, like Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. Don’t forget to check out the comments on the original poll post. A couple people are actually buying the digital version so they can have it ASAP, then upgrading to the CE!!

Thank you for doing Math with Mary.
