    For people who ordered from Amazon UK - GOOD NEWS

    This is what it says on the TOR page on Amazon UK now:

    Delivery Update—Star Wars: The Old Republic
    We have received stock from our supplier and will begin preparing orders for dispatch from today (December 13).


    *Does a happy dance*

    I feel for you, bro. If they can do it in the UK, why not the US?

    I'm in the US, just checked my order and it's changed to December 20th with a "Release Date Delivery" option. It auto changed my order to that option.

    I didn't bother checking, but did amazon charge the whole price instantly on the day of pre-order?

    Shouldn't have done. should only be at dispatch.

    They can't do it in the US because of retailers. If games shipped out earlier than the official launch date, then they wouldn't make money from launch party events and etc. which have become a staple in game releases in the US.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Oddly enough in ireland when i order from amazon.co.uk (i do all the time) it takes longer to arrive by specialist courier such as dhl or citylink or what have you than standard post. Our postal serivce kicks ass ! An post saves you like 10 quid there!

    OP yeah this rocks. they've done this before and all the time with other releases, the last harry potter book for instance so that it arrives on your door step the day of release.

    So awesome!

    Sigh no option on my CE order for that. Priority International shipping 2-4 days, shipping the 21st and arriving with a warning after xmas and around the 28th.

    Im resigned to the fact Im just frak'd.
