Doesn't work that way. I can compare extracted music, and tracks on the Collector's Edition CD's.The CD tracks are not simply stiched together. They are usually blended together professionally. Stiching the tracks together results in music stopping and starting. And some of the tracks contain multiple zones worth of music. "Outland Suite" contains several zones of music, and if you tried stitching them all together, you would have a mess.Some of these soundtracks aren't sold in the store. And the only way to get them was the Collector's Editions.Diablo 2's, in particular, has been out of print for years. Strangly enuf, the one available in their store is missing the track "Tristram", the only thing I can think of is the new Diablo 3 soundtrack having a similiar track, and they not wanting two similiar tracks for purchase up there.And the music on the CD's are usually higher quality than what's in the game. I think the MP3's for the game's files are stored in 128Kbps. Whereas with the downloadable tracks, some of them are offered in .wav format, which is full CD quality.Take your pick. 128Kbps stitched together music, which stops and starts repeatedly. Or full CD-quality, professionally mastered music at $1 a track, which equals up to the normal price of a physical CD soundtrack in their store. I don't think that's a ripoff.
