Disks with cool art work on them and the box, that's about it.  The boxed version also registers with Steam.

Is there a printed manual? A lot of publishers, even the big names, are skimping out on the game manuals. Not even included .pdf files anymore. Just a link saying 'for more information on gameplay, go to this specific page on the game's website'. And those that do include anything printed are more like folded reference cards, for all the lack of content.

On the other hand, I suppose most of the fun in Postal is discovering the rewards and consequences for shooting (or not shooting) things. And faces.

No manual sorry... and this is kinda embarrassing but I could not confirm or deny the existence of a PDF, I don't think one was made, at least in English, guess I'll have to find out.

Oh, yeah, duh.  Shows how good my memory is.  That was the first time I knew it was there, when you posted that.  Cheers man.

Cool, thanks. I'll read it while I wait for my boxed copy. I got a message from both one "RWS Inc" and one "RUNNING WITH SCISSORS" with the UPS tracking number. Is there a difference between the two?

The Steam Activation thingy told me I just activated "Postal 3 Retail 3P". What's '3P', if not a clever emoticon meant to look like a bikini top-and-bottom?

You still contributed to the development of the game, regardless of whether or not the content was included in the final game you still contributed to the development and therefore deserve to be credited.

My main contribution will come if we ever get this damn SDK and stock assets out the door. Even if I'm not a fan of how the game ended up, it's gonig to be a good mod base for those already good with the Source SDK, and I'll be supporting that all I can.
