Question regarding the CE and subscription fees (for now). I have the CE ($30 from
GS) and it comes with a free month. My question is: can you buy the non-CE edition that's on sale at BB this week for $7.49 and essentially use it as a "time card" since the boxed versions come with a free month? Ie basically get sep and oct for half off and get the subscription bonuses.

You should know by now that buying any CE over $100 is a suckers bet. I fell for it once with Halo 3 and never again.


The Borderlands ultimate loot chest will likely want a word with you about that.

If you register the normal version first, then upgrade to the CE, I think you'll get 60 days free subscription.

I'm guessing it doesn't work the other way around.

Just ordered one for Store Pickup, $10.81 after taxes and RZ cert. Must've got the order in right as they closed the store pickup window.

Some stores around me have it, is the game any fun? I think I can run this on my laptop since I can run D3 maybe I'll try it out. This would really jump my backlog up I have no time.

edit: I am a Star Wars fan, anyone try it?

If you are a SW fan, it's worth it for the extras alone. People either love the game or hate it so you'll have to try it for yourself. It's a fun leveling experience if you like Bioware games, but most people don't stick around that long after hitting max level.

I wouldn't bother playing the game though if you're doing it from a non-gaming laptop.

10-4 on the laptop it might have to run this at really low level and not be that enjoyable. I'll put the 20 toward Darksiders 2 I think or one of the 3DS games I'm getting Sunday.

Dammit I was just there, like I just got back. I saw them but never checked and it won't let me select store pick up from the website. Oh well.

I see $14.99 for SWTOR non-CE (SKU 3031171) on the Best Buy website. Where is it $7.49?

I'm still firm on what I said.

Halo 3: paid full price, never again
Halo Reach: $75 and that was too much but it was right after launch
Gears 3: $60
Skyrim: $60

All of these were $150 at launch and dropped sharply. Hell, look at all the current Max Payne 3 CEs lying around, and that's a decent game.

If you really want the game don't trust the store inventory, I think it shuts it off when there is 1 or 2 left in-store.

I've been craving this since day one, nearly bought it for $150 even though I've never played an MMO, I loved KOTOR and its sequel that much.

Missed the KMart scramble due to work, same thing with the Gamestop scramble. Thank goodness I worked from home today.

I got the last one in my store. It said it was unavailable at every store near me but I knew my BB used to have a couple so I went to check anyway. So glad I did.

thanks op, man this game really flopped badly. The price drop is insane, they really killed any profit with the f2p public announcement. i wish i had a high spec comp for this game.

i imagine in most cases, the price you see on bestbuy.com should reflect in store as well.

FFFFFFffffffffffuuuuuuuu.....Why did I have to pick today to do yard work! I've been outside for 3 hours, and this is what I missed! Being a huge SW fan, of course I already have this still sealed in my collection (full MSRP...grrr :(), but DAMN I would've loved to snag another one for $20. Might have to check a few of my local stores for low stock.
