How many people would buy "silver" edition?

General Discussion
If the diablo collector's edition is considered the gold edition, and the standard edition is bronze or something, let's say there was hypothetically a silver edition. Basically silver would be a digital edition that came with all the stuff like in game cosmetic items, banners, dyes, and pets, but none of the physical goodies like soundtracks, art books, and that soulstone USB drive, and would be slightly cheaper than the CE as a result.

How many people would buy silver instead of the standard edition? I don't know about you, but I've gotten like no use out of that starcraft 2 usb, and I barely even looked at the bonus feature DVDs and art stuff, so I'm thinking I would have got silver if starcraft 2 had that available

Edit-
Clearly I need to clarify some things, because some people have a difficult time reading two paragraphs.

What this post is:
"in a hypothetical situation, would you do this?"

What this post is not:
"blizzard please do this I have such great ideas!"
"has blizzard more or less said if this will ever happen?"
"this is something that is going to happen so I am now allowed to discuss is"
Blizz has more or less told people that this would not happen.

Go buy the Gold version if you want that stuff.


oh, excuse me, I didn't realize I had accidentally titled this thread "has blizzard said if a silver edition will ever happen?" How silly of me to make that little mistake. Let me fix that real quick.
"I want the collector's edition to have only stuff I like."
only reason im buying it is for the wings, so yeah, i would buy a digital CE. even if it was only 5-10$ cheaper.

id also like the opportunity to download the installer and pre-purchase instead of going to a brick-and-mortar store on the 14th.

It's simply not going to happen. Therefore, it is pointless to speculate about how many people would buy such a thing, as the only reason for such speculation is to try to convince Blizzard to make it, which they have said they will not do.
I would spend $80 for this "silver edition." Assuming this edition includes the dyes, the banner sigil, the wings, sc2 portraits, and wow pet. Don't really care for last two though.

To straight up answer your question: Yes, I would purchase this silver edition.

Oh dear, and I tried so hard to hide that. You must feel incredibly clever for working out that this is what I was saying
so, basically a collectors edition for poor people...

err, no!

either the real deal, or not

The devs don't read the forums, so there's no such thing as making a thread "to convince blizzard to make it". This is purely hypothetical. I realize you can't fathom the notion that someone would make a thread on a forum without some kind of hidden agenda, and I won't try very hard to convince you otherwise, so you'll just have to deal with it.
I'd be interested in a sort of digital CE if something like that were available. The physical stuff that comes with most CE's is usually exciting for a few minutes then just becomes more junk to collect dust.

If I could buy a more expensive version with only the in-game goodies I would.

You use sarcasm to reply to every comment you dislike. You must be so much smarter than everyone else.

I was using sarcasm to communicate that I was never trying to hide the fact that I am not interested in certain items in most collector's editions, and that I found it ridiculous that you felt the need to point out something that I had already said pretty clearly in my first post. But clearly that wasn't enough, because here I am explaining it to you directly, and using like 5 times as many words to do so. What a waste of time.

You used sarcasm to communicate how upset my comment made you, and to add basically nothing to this discussion. What an even greater waste of time.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they don't read the forums either
Anything less than full support for Diablo 3 is blasphemy.
