Editorial: SWTOR Collector’s Edition Elitists

A reader wrote in to us recently with a pretty interesting thought about the types of gamers who have pre-ordered and will play SWTOR. He says, “People who pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition think they’re more important than everyone else.” He even offers some evidence of why he believes this: 1- A signature bragging about the CE. 2- A post saying CE buyers are entitled to being better in-game. Honestly, I never thought a whole lot about it at first but it’s a good point now that it’s been brought up. Sure, this is a generalization and I’m sure not every single gamer to buy the CE acts this way (I don’t and I love buying CEs of my games) but at least a good portion of them do. I have seen this type of behavior in the game and its community so far, too. I’ve also seen it in other…

Secure Your Account and Grab a Security Authentication Key

This news just in from the official SWTOR site: it’s time to secure your account. You may have gotten an email about changing your password sometime in the past 24 hours. They also put out this news article explaining the reason for the emails. In addition, BioWare is offering a Security Authentication Key that comes with the Collector’s Edition but will be available other ways as well. The news story explains: “The Collector’s Edition is still available in limited quantities at select retailers. Watch for more information on other ways to obtain The Old Republic Security Key soon!” From the picture Stephen Reid tweeted of the CE package, it looks just like the Blizzard authenticator but with a SWTOR graphic. Anyway, it’s still a pretty nifty device. I have one for WoW and with the popularity of SWTOR, it seems a pretty good idea to grab one for that extra…

Stephen Reid tweeted a pic of SWTOR CE Box

Are you wondering what the Collector’s Edition of SWTOR is going to look like? Have you pre-ordered already or asked Santa to pretty-please bring you a copy for an early Christmas this year? If you’re anxious or curious to see what it’s going to look like, you are in luck. Stephen Reid tweeted a pic of the SWTOR Collector’s Edition box as a fun little teaser for us all to see and drool over.  One thing that strikes me right away is how solid this is, which is great for the high price you’re going to pay for it. My office contains a large collection of video game collector’s editions from both myself and my husband. As avid video gamers, we have built a bit of a collection over the years and this box is going to look great added to our shelf.  The pic from Reid doesn’t show us…

SWTOR Will have a Limited Release, Not Just Pre Orders

The wait is over! … Or is it? If you plan on playing SWTOR you should buy ASAP because the news is out that there will be a limited release, and not just on preorders. When the news was first announced by EA that pre-orders were ready, gamers scrambled to ensure they would get one of several limited Collector’s Edition copies of the game. But now the news seems to be the same for any edition you want to buy and not just for pre-orders. Game Informer reports that there will be limited copies of all versions of the game- both digital and physical. Just how many copies will that be? Well, your guess is as good as ours because they’re keeping the number secret. The report says: “The representative said that EA has an exact number set for how many copies will be sold before the publisher turns off…
