buying it in the shop.
Already have, long long time ago!
already pre ordered a normal edition a while ago, was able to get my hands on a CE preorder yesterday. So pumped for this game.
Got the email from Bioware/SWTOR at like 8:30pm saying "PRE-ORDER NOW!" so I did right then and there.. Found out when I woke up the next day they were sold out. Glad I got it when I did (: And yes, I got the Collectors Edition
Pre-orderd long time ago, and Collectors edition for the win! Going to be awsome^^

It's been said occasionally for the past few months, but this is basically what EA/BioWare's plans are to limit preorders. It does exist, just the limit of preorders is unknown.
EA to Limit Star Wars: The Old Republic Sales Due to Server Concerns
August 19, 2011
"It’s normal and expected that a game publisher will try to have as many copies of its game sold on launch, what’s unusual is when a publisher does the opposite – and this is what exactly what EA is planning to do when Star Wars: The Old Republic launches later this year.
EA is not doing it for any nefarious reason. On the contrary, they’re doing this to ensure that their servers for BioWare’s MMO won’t be overloaded.
This was confirmed by an EA BioWare representative at gamescom. The spokesperson said that both digital and physical copies of the game will initially see a limited release. EA has an exact value in mind but is not willing to share it publicly as of press time."

No preorder for me, waiting to find out more about the end game raiding content, because as it stands looks pretty dire
I want to pre-order so badly but the problem is as I'm studying in another country I'm going back to my home country on the 16th of December(coming back on 8th of January)..and my University holds mails for like 2 weeks and then sends it back to the sender..And of course I can't pre-order it from my country yeaah sucks to be me
I say no only because I don't have the computer to run it and I probably wont by the time it drops. If I had the computer or I knew I'd have the money for one around then, then I would have, the moment preorder was announced.
i pre-ordered the day after it became available, But where i went to pre-order they were out of Collectors editions in less then 24hours, sucks.
What do you mean the servers are going to be capped when they launch?
I pre-ordered a month ago, already have my characters picked out with names, the guild they're joining and everything.
I already pre-ordered it 1 1/2 Months ago =)
I actually here recently was able to pre-order the collectors edition! Was pretty excited about that. I just hope that it comes fairly soon. Also for those wondering you do not need to change your pre-launch code either. As the pre-launch code only gives you the crystal until you put in your serial # for which edition you bought. Very nice since if you "upgrade" pre-launch no need to swap keys around!
