Last night (July 20th, 2011) Bioware, EA and Lucasarts have all announced preorders for all three editions of The Old Republic!
The two editions, Standard and (a rather expensive 150-ish dollar) Collector's will be available from a wide variety of retailers. All three, including Deluxe will be available via Origin, EA's online store that will grant both physical and non-physical copies of your preorder on launch. It has been stated that Origin is sold out of Collector's editions though. For those of us in Canada, we can pre-order from either Origin or Gamestop. Also, it is mentioned somewheree that a certain amount of guild members will be required to pre-order to have the guild constructed during the Early access.
I pre-ordered my CE from Amazon.com. Excited is too weak a word to even begin describing how I feel about getting closer to this game going live. If it is even half as good as it looks like it is going to be then I'll be thrilled.
Agreed, I was a bit shocked though when I found out Canada only recieved 900 CE's 2 days after the announcement. It turns out my Gamestop got in more copies yesterday (only had 3 when I was there earlier, all sold out), so I grabbed at the opportunity to upgrade my pre-order. Incredibly stoked and excited as we get closer to launch.
Still waiting on that code though.
new to the DB, but i per-ordered as soon as i was able at my game stop, i upgraded to the collectors the day they could as well ... i get the warm and fuzzes every time i think about it
