All those little additions in the pre-order versions look lovely, but I'm not prepared to spend that much money on it. I'll buy it when it releases (hopefully) (if it doesn't suck).

yea, I went with standard too. I wouldn't fork out 150 for a franchise i dearly loved like jk3 or dx3 much less an unproven mmo. I did see that since TOR won't be region locked, lynk can play early/the beta with his USA key

I gotta wait until I see the reviews. I've never played a subscription MMO before, but if it turns out great, I'll give it a whirl. I am excited regardless.

Still unsure if I'm going to be able to play it... if it wasn't for my studies and subsequent move to Sweden I probably would have pre-ordered the Collector's Edition.

I don't mmo's or any internt only game. I pre-order the blu-ray of the complete saga today.

I am waiting for a Star Wars Battlefront III!!! That is a better game!

I always hoping for a conclusion to the Force Unleashed by making it a releasing and tying up lose ends.

I'm waiting, didn't pre-order. If I would have had a release date I may have ordered, but Skyrim and ME3 are higher priorities to me at this time. Just not sure about a MMO.

You can judge to games not released, one just in beta testing and the other just a rumor? Can you also do this with football games? I'd really like to know who will win the Super Bowl and the College National Championship this season.

I hope it crashes and burns and they just make KOTOR 3. With no interaction with humans in game.

If it crashes and burns then there'd be absolutely 0 chance of KotOR 3 anyway considering how much money and effort they're putting in to this. I hate you all too, but we're stuck with what we're getting even if it fails.

I certainly hope this won't turn into another game that's about earning levels, gear and "credits" instead of enjoying and furthering the storyline. I'm old AND new here, so here are some things that I still do when I play any game, even an MMO but mostly an RPG:

1. I read the quest text to see not only WHAT I'm supposed to do, but WHY I'm doing it.
2. I become interested in the game's lore, and conjure up my own character's backstory.
3. I roleplay my character (meaning, my Jedi Knight won't say, "That sucks, man!")
4. I try to figure out where I fit in the game world. How can I enhance my role & place?
5. I immerse myself in the game world not for "ubergear", but for the experience of it.

I'm even wondering if I should pre-order TOR. It looks cool, but is it only fancy graphics?

@MsFicwriter I think you're being a little overly ambitious, the game wont be that complex. Sure It'll probably have the most "immersive" questing storyline in any MMO so far what with the different dialogue you can choose from, but other than that I believe it will follow the traditional MMO formula. Not everyone wants to RP either so you can't make a game that's a 100% catered to loremasters.

I hope it does well so all the KotOR fanboys can shut the hell up for a while.

I might pre-order it....But as to which edition? Um not sure. I will have to see how much money I have once college starts (and if my parents will even let me buy it lol).

Most likely I will have to wait until it comes out.

Dear Pho3nix,

Now that you've brought that up, I definitely see your point. There are times when I log into my favorite MMO and just want to whack some creatures, working off stress and earning me some in-game money and gear. Striking a balance is always a good thing!

I hope that when release day does come out it doesn't take too long for TOR CE to arrive. From my experience it usually takes about a week to two weeks for anything to get from the US to Australia which really sucks... bleah.

Darth Malgus=Revan Reborn. I've seen too many little hints. It's like the nightmare I don't want to come true is happening anyways. /RANT

Now that I've gotten that out there...I suppose I'll *eventually* get it. First I would need a new machine, though. Otherwise it's just going to be a game sitting around on my shelf. Plus it just makes sense to wait things like this out a bit in case the game isn't "all that". Other things require my attention, as in $$$ right now.

Though I think Trench and I will be a couple of mandalorians on the prowl.

CE for me.

The game is going to be freaking awesome.

I'm beta-testing right now. Drool away.

Not up my alley. Not enough free time: work weeks range between 65-110 hours nowadays. I play games when I want/need to change my mind and can't go out, mostly when I travel to the arctic where the internet connection in very 90-ish at only a few kb/s. This means single player games only.

I looked at all of the other games I had, then promptly pre-ordered the Digital Delux Edition. While the CE version has some nice shinneh's, I don't really need anything.
