The differences between the collector's and normal version isn't clear to me. Some sites give a list of the extras, but they throw up many questions. Firstly, there's something about the collector's edition having "gorgeous high resolution map of Middle-earth" (so normal version is in low-rez?), "mastered in HD for the ultimate high resolution experience on your PC" (this a general statement?), "in-game cinematics and trailers in high resolution and surround sound" (so they made grainy/low-rez movies for the plain version on purpose, to capitalise later, and then vanilla stereo?). What really gets me is that they would make low-rez movies on purpose, and charge you to have them in high resolution. Lastly, I know about some of the other extra content (special unit(s)/extra effects), and was wondering if this could be 'cracked' in the vaillna version? A bit like when the lion in Black & White 2 could be cracked/patched in to the original version.
