Got mine in first thing this morning. Thankfully I only ordered the standard edition, received a code, and was accepted in to the early entry. From the anger on the forums, it would seem that the Canadians that order the CE are getting the following email:

"Based on our estimates you are NOT likely to receive the pre-order copy of Star Wars: The Old Republic you requested. "

I was originally hopeful for this MMO however now (over the years) my interest has wained more and more. I most likely won't pick it up at all until I hear some reviews/views on the game from people who've been playing it a bit.

Am I the only one who has absolutely, positively no interest in this? It doesn't even look remotely good.

Yeah, I know: ooooooo, look at those pretty trailers.....and yet they have absolutely nothing to do with the gameplay or graphics of the game itself.

I also like how people keep falling for the "digital collector's edition". What a scam.

Just because it holds no value to you, does not make it hold no value to someone else.

I agree that the Collectors Editions offer very little for an aditional $25. But it's all in the interest of the player. If the few in-game extras are worth it to the buyer, then so be it. It's just like people who spend the money on a 2600k vs 2500k, or an 1100t over a 1090t. The value is there for some, but not for others.

I don't think anyone thinks the trailers are even remotely related to in-game graphical content. And if they are, then they deserve to be let down. But an MMO made by Bioware, set in the Star Wars universe has a LOT of appeal across quite a few interest groups. Although, like everything in life, it's all personal choice.

Target release is 'Holidays, 2011'. So take that however you want.

this game always annoyed me. I hate mmos but at the same time I really liked the original KOTOR and to a lesser extent the sequel and the simple fact that this is instead of a proper sequel. I dont think I'll be preordering, I'll wait for the reviews but will still, be sad
