The Old Republic Code Issues

This thread and this one on the Star Wars: The Old Republic carry complaints from users who have received preorder copies of BioWare's MMORPG where the game activation code is unreadable in some cases (perhaps due to a garbled subspace transmission) and completely missing in others. Without codes, players will be unable to access the game after December 22nd, when the two day early access grace period concludes. There are various reports of forum and email replies from support on this topic that indicate this is being addressed to some degree or another, but there are also posts expressing concern that the two different issues (missing versus unreadable codes) are being confused with each other and the possibility that some support responses are dealing with this as if it concerned Origin preorders, which is does not. Thanks nin via Kotaku.

Um, no, I beg to differ. You only choose ONE provider for cable, sattelite, or cell phone service 99.9% of the time. In regards to digital distribution, you are forced into having multiple programs like Steam or Origin installed just to play games. I cannot choose just ONE provider for all my games.

Hell, at this point you can do everything on Steam but Battlefield 3 anyway. I don't know of another platform you have to have for a particular game other than BF3 since Demigod released on it recently. Other providers don't even require clients in the first place (Amazon's downloader can be uninstalled after the game is downloaded, Direct2Drive doesn't even have one, etc.).

In any case...

Origin isn't necessary to play this game. It really has nothing at all to do with this entire topic, actually, since the garbled codes are from retail boxes and you don't need Origin at any point in running the game, setting up a subscription, or installing it.
