It states they are planning to produce 100,000 copies (collectors edition) is this worldwide or just from amazon.co.uk? This may sound like a silly question but I just want to check. Also, will there be a print number (say 357/100,000) I doubt there will but, again, I just want to check.

I'm suprised that all the preorders haven't been done yet to be honest. I know the quanity you can preorder has decreased but not as quickly as I first thought they would.

This is worldwide.
No idea about the print numbers. Just have to wait and see.
I guess not everyone can afford to splash out on £50/$100 due to credit crunch.

off-topic, but the "credit crunch" is just a made up buzzword. People over-borrowed, and now lots of people are in trouble because of it. Simple, don't borrow what you can't afford.

Now now now, give credit where it's due.

Stockbrokers played virtually no part in the 'credit crunch' or the oil price or the house price fall - the 3 big short term issues.

The guys who should do the time are:

The mortgage salespeople who let standards slip because they were greedy
The mortgage lenders who authorised this in blind euphoria
The bankers who created the over complicated debt products that sprinkled this crappy debt around the world.
And to an extent, the negligent european and other banks who bought those products without realising what they were.
The revelation that subprime mortgages were overvalued caused the capital losses that major banks have been reporting, and shot up the interbank rates that the banks lend to each other, and in turn, to us.
It was this that killed the banks and consumers. This is the credit crunch.

P.S If I hear another 'comedian' use the joke 'Credit Crunch, I thought that was a type of breakfast cereal, I'm going to shoot them :P'

With regard to the 100,000 issue. Nobody has ever seen a figure above 100,000 reported anywhere, and this would have definately cropped up at SOME point had the global book print been over 100,000. Amazon may be a big company, but it wouldn't mislead this badly. Therefore yeah I reckon you can be safe in the belief that 100,000 is the limit
