I want to play StarWars: TOR. Where to buy a digital copy?

Origin is sold out of them. Any other shops that sell digital copies of this game?

I think they're sold out of physical copies, not digital standard ones.

So, uh, Origin, I guess.

Yeah, they're only sold out of physical copies. I'm not sure how it's even possible to "run out" of digital copies.

@chocomuffling: Origin is the only place to get the game digitally.

They are 'sold out' in the sense that they are artificially limiting the amount of players that can join in initially so that the servers aren't stressed as much. They were probably trying to prevent exactly what is happening now with server queues.

So yes, in certain territories it is 'sold out' but this varies depending on where you are. In the UK digital is sold out. In the US the regular is sold out but there are still digital deluxe.

If I use

"http://buy.swtor.com/us"

There is still the possibility to order the digital version. The problem is that once I press the "buy now on origin" I always get redirected to the origin site that goes with the country i'm currenty in and here it's digitally sold out.

On every other site, like...

http://buy.swtor.com/uk

http://buy.swtor.com/it

http://buy.swtor.com/de

http://buy.swtor.com/fr

...it says it's sold out, but that doesn't matter anyways cause I can't access any other version of origin anyways.
