PostSubject: Pre-order numbers are limited!   Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:34 am

If you haven't pre-ordered yet and you're on the fence, you might want to make a decision soon if you want to jump into the game at launch (and even early game access at that).

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2011/08/18/star-wars-the-old-republic-launch-copies-limited-for-retail-and-digital.aspx

I would figure that it makes sense, seeing that popular MMOs tend to be overloaded with larger than expected numbers at launch. Then again, there's always the chance of server crashes and long lines even with the "limited" numbers. The larger scale beta tests in the coming months should give them an idea of how much the servers may handle.

Thanks for this! I was planning on heading to Gamestop tomorrow to drop $25, and this just solidifies that decision.

Minor tip: I wouldn't pre-order from Origin.
When most places mention a $5 preorder, they mean $5 down.
At Origin, that means they charge you an extra $5 for preordering, and you pay the whole thing up front

Not entirely true. Yes, the entire amount is charged, but that's only temporary. Trust me on this as I pre-ordered the Digital Standard Edition from there. People have a way of making things worse than it really is (not to mention doing whatever possible to make them look like "thieves"). I can see why it can be a concern, but at least it gives me an idea of what to expect. Razz

So generally, if you plan on pre-ordering on Origin, check your balance and see if you are planning other charges before doing so. The full amount that's "charged" only lasts a short time (no more than a few days).

I have already fully paid off my Collectors Edition at Gamestop so I'm ready to go! Thanks for letting us all know though, I'm sure this will motivate somepony.

I hope that's not where my extra 50 or so bucks came from.

If that's in regards to the pre-order on Origin, the extra charge will be refunded to you. How long ago did you preorder?

Oh I got mine at walmart. Preordered last pay check so 2 weeks ago or so. I think they just charge you upfront though... or I was under that impression anyway.

I was worried at first about the limited preorder things, especially since my friend and I preordered online about three weeks after the preorders went up. I was a bit surprised when we got through instantly.

It's hard to tell how many is considered the limit, but I think the region limitations gave the general idea that they're making sure the launch goes as smoothly as possible. I suspect that there would be information regarding the number of servers for each type and location near launch.

Funny, I almost stopped into my local Gamestop on the way home today to pay off my Collector's Edition. If it wasn't for the fact that I had frozen goods I would have. Consider me more motivated. Muffins!?!
