Pre-order SWTOR CE edition is expensive as hell (for EU players)

Oh hello there Bioware. Did you know that 150$ is not really 150 euros? Acutally its more like 213$

So.. you know.. fuck you


is the same as


But this $ is not the same as

Yesterday I didn't know, what my breaking point would be, for whether or not I'd buy the Collectors edition. now I know.


  1. Wow. Epic fail on simple maths.
    Or perhaps they think Europeans have more dosh.. or are more passionate about Star Wars..
    or.. that it wouldn't be noticed.. or.. or..

    I'm fuming a little bit.

    I was never going to by the Collectors edition, but I know a lot of people who will. Or perhaps _would_ have if the pricing had been fair. Or perhaps they'll order the US version and play on US servers. Just for the hell of it.

  2. I'm looking at a polish site that offers the game in Slotys, or maybe Yen? :P

    Hopefully it'll be re-priced

  3. I've just had this pointed out to me:

    " its the silly $149+ tax and €149 inc tax thing they keep pulling on us :P"

    I am in no way capable of doing the maths to see if that's right or not :P

  4. Doesn't make sense, the Digital version from Origin is priced at $79.99 and €74.99 (and 80$ is around 56 euros)

  5. ..wait, although going into the origin store, it seems the price isn't that high

  6. The CE is darn pricy for the Aussies too, and we're not even getting localised servers. I'm waiting to see if we get some better support before spending a cent.
