considering the cost of the expansion is so low i can pretty much guarantee you they will not be putting the expense out to produce Dvds for sale..Not only that since there are numerous other changes included and tweaks that have to be integrated at the time of download and installed before the next piece can proceed then i would say thats another reason for a nope


and

its 2013 man !!....Millions of people every day around the world buy things via the internet. Im sorry to come off sounding harsh...but your going to have just get used to this because going forward (and we already see it) digital distribution is the way things are going and either you will have to get on board or pretty much give up gaming at some point in time,.

If your that concerned Buy a "disposable" use credit card and use that for the purchase.

Hi LordSilversouls,

Rise of the Hutt Cartel is not going to be available in retail stores. It is a Digital Expansion, meaning that you can only purchase the content online. Please note that when purchasing via http://www.swtor.com/rothc will ensure that you have a secure connection for your transaction.

Thanks for your understanding, and we hope to see you on Makeb!

"Digital expansion."

It's not big enough to be an expansion. Just call it DLC.

I'm the same way, and given some of the leaks of information we've seen with other products I think you are justified in being careful.

That being said, I've sadly had to move on from this because of the way the market is evolving. Although the only online delivery mechanism I truly trust is Steam, BioWare seems to indicate they take security seriously... given previous... lapses.

Actually, no. No, I DON'T understand. I can't buy the expansion to the game, then. Not because I'm merely uncomfortable with paying for things online, but because I HAVE NO MEANS OF PAYING FOR THINGS ONLINE. I can't fax cash, now, can I? I have no credit card, no bank account, nothing to link a Paypal account to...I have nothing.

So, again: what was your reasoning for not having the expansion sold in brick-and-mortar stores? Couldn't you at least sell codes for it, like you do the Cartel Coin cards and Time Cards (which I haven't been able to find within 25 miles of my home anymore, by the way)?

Why not visit your local supermarket and buy a Visa or Amex gift card? They work for online purchases.

Any chance of it or any future expansions being released in a similar manner to time cards? Enter the key on the site and it will download anything needed the next time you start the launcher?
