Look on the bright side. I preordered from Wal-Mart and they double-charged me! I sent them a polite email this morning saying they need to reverse it immediately. Not because I can't afford to lose another $170 for a bit, but just because I hate being double-charged.

I preordered from Origin and entered my code on 7/27/2011.

Still waiting for the early access email.

This is not completley correct .. I myself am confused and a bit frustrated .. I purchased pre-order from Origin and was only given one code for Pre-order .. I have not recieved any other code via e-mail to apply if I get an e-mail for early access .. the original code will not work and trying to get an answer from EA or Origin is impossible.. So if I get an early access e-mail it seems I am screwed.. Is anyone else in my situation...?


Very frustrated ...!!!!!

Redeemed my code from for a Digital Deluxe on July 21st, then decided to go for the regular. Many people claimed my pre-order would remain if I cancelled my pre-order and chance it onto a regular, even the incompetent people at Origin said so. Today I find the code is gone and I won't have any early access at all.

This is a different account of course, I can't even post with my own account. Been waiting for four *********** years and now this!

Well, I just took my 150 bucks back. Amazon guarantees no box until after Dec. 25th, and estimate it could be Jan 2nd before getting it. The only reason I can think of this happening (I ordered it back in July) is that EA is not getting the game to Amazon in a timely manner. I'm guessing it's purposeful.

I'm not playing for a couple of days and then not be able to play for almost two weeks.
I have just lost my want to play your game. Too many issues, still, even with all your efforts to slow down the launch.

Good luck with your game. I see problems ahead.

what I want to know is why only Origin gets to send them out early, and i have to be locked from the game for several days after launch because Amazon cant ship prior to the 20th?
I've already decided to cancel it if it doesn't ship by the 19th, but it just plain sux that BioWare is doing this.
