Star Wars: The Old Republic Preorders

Preorders are now being accepted for Star Wars: The Old Republic on the official website for BioWare's upcoming MMORPG, though these are currently restricted to customers in the North American and European territories. They offer three different editions, the Standard, Digital Deluxe (only through Origin), and a Collector's Editions. Preordering any of the three entitles the purchaser to a virtual Color Stone as well as early access to the game, though it looks like the $150.00 USD Collector's Edition is already sold out.

Funny how the complete fuck up re: Oceania, parts of Europe which apparently aren't Europe (Sweden, Latvia, Slovenia, Turkey for example) all miss out on this offer despite being sent the spam email saying we could get in on this...

Tbh I was only considering playing because a bunch of good friends are signing up. Exclusion of most of the rest of the world for early access just made it that much easier to pass on pre-ordering and waiting to see if I want to buy in at all.

EA appears to be hedging their bets on server infrastructure. Instead of provisioning for millions of world wide users they're going to guage reaction in US/certain parts of Europe and see how much they want to tack on post release. I wonder how Bioware are appreciating EA making them look like a pack of assholes...

Also, 7 day access is only for the CE, 3 days for the other two types:

Early game access is extended to all everyone who pre-orders Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. If you have pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition, game access will begin seven days before the game’s release. If you have pre-ordered either the Base Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition, game access will begin three days before release.
