Wrong and Wrong. Origin, for example, charges 5 dollars for you to pre-order. Don't believe me? Go to the pre-order page right now and have a look.

$59.99**
Includes Origin $5 Pre-Order Fee


$79.99**
Includes Origin $5 Pre-Order Fee


Includes here is vague, logically it would be the above price already includes the 5$, but the double ** is unknown.

Walmart and some other places charged $1-5 extra for sending the pre order code to cover the cost of UPS, FEDEX..ect. So in a way people did pay more.

I ordered from Origin as well, and according to my pre-order page it was a $5 deposit only. Not sure what you're lookin at.

The early pre-order access was included in the over all price of the game so you actually did pay $5 for the access key because that was automatically deducted from your acct when you paid and not really a deposit.

This might have been stated else where but too many posts to actually read and get thru so many complaints. But what Bioware should have done is that anyone that ordered the CE should have received the 7 day early access and then everyone else 5 days. This way they could have avoided so many disappointed people. This game was overly priced and there could have been a better plan laid out. The servers are going to be flooded anyways so just let people in and forget about the email waves.

You where suppose to test a major rush on your servers during beta and not during pre-release.

$59.99 is the price you would have paid in the store on launch day, and $59.99 is the price you pay when you pre-order. The $5 Pre-Order Fee is a deposit that they take off the full price.

I'm looking at my Origin receipt right now.

Product: SWTOR Digital Standard Edition
qty ordered = 1
Amount = $54.99

Product: SWTOR Digital Standard Edition Pre-Order Fee
qty ordered = 1
Amount = $5.00

Total = $59.99
Discount = $5.00

I'm no great mathematician, but it looks to me like the pre-order fee is deducted from the amount of the game...
I don't mean to insult your stupidity. Really, it's quite magnificent and worthy of praise.
