You cant pre-order in Australia because EA are awesome.

I have to pay an additional fee to pre-order a downloadable game, a game which is already costing me more than any other standard game, a game which i also have to pay monthly for.
 

To me, I can't see this going well.

Wait three months after release to see if people are still into it, then decide if it's worth picking up.  Community is everything in MMOs and the migratory WOW players will have returned to their own roost by then if the game isn't fulfilling.  Besides, release bugs should be patched by then, too.  I'm not too interested in pre-order bonuses like colored lightsaber crystals.

Probably getting the standard edition. I don't care for different looking items that does the same thing as the regular ones do.

Could be fun for a month or two, and I laaaav Star Wars.

Pre-ordered standard edition. Looking forward to my pre-order box goodies. Especially the early access.

Maybe I will buy it a few months after the game have been released. Never play an MMO on day one.

While I'm still excited for this game, unlike most of the game's press that have seemingly agreed to collectively write this game off, I must admit I'm starting to get a little irked by EA's handling of TOR's launch. I've downloaded Origin and it seems to be a fully competent digital games service, but the recent announcement of "limited server-rollouts" at launch is upsetting. Coupled with the previous pre-order announcement that earlier pre-order customer's will get access to servers first, EA and Bioware are pretty much forcing you to pre-order if you want to play on day-one. Which, we should remember STILL hasn't been announced. I don't want to come off as some whiny, ethically high-minded fanboy, but I hate the idea that I could buy this game at launch and not be able to play it. I really just need to get over it and pre-order the game already, but I at least need an announced launch date.

I'm waiting.  I don't like MMOs really, I don't like playing with others (take my toys and go home!).  I bought WoW just to see what the fuss was about and leveled to the cap, which at the time was 60, but I quit soon after.  If TOR is as story-rich as they say it is I will probably do the same thing, but only after I read a lot of feedback.

I have no interest in playing this game. 
That being said I cant wait till it comes out to see if its an incredible success, a cataclysmic failure or something in between (my moneys on the final, boring one).

I said D but it will probably end up E.

Wow the top answer is never buy. I would get it, but I'm don't subscriptions. Can't wait for Guild Wars 2.
