Like the procrastinator that I am, I didn’t pre-order SWTOR (Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG) in time to get it from my usual source, Amazon. This left me with only several options to get my hands on a copy of the Collectors Edition. I chose Walmart and I chose poorly.
On October 21 I made my purchase. They mailed my early access game code, and I’ve already registered it with my account. They changed my card the FULL amount of the game at that time.
Without having received email notification, or ANY kind of notification for that matter, I saw that my order has been cancelled on Wamart.com. How nice.
Right now, many folks in the SWTOR forum thread created about this are calling it a computer glitch that will be rectified by the 9th, but we shall see.
I ordered another copy just now through Newegg.com, but I don’t have high hopes for either situation – how can Newegg still have copies to sell? Are they going to do the same thing? Will update as I get more info.
