  1. Omfg I am sooooo hanging out for Christmas. Gotta get me some Jedi heads cut…. Sith for life

  2. Wonder if it will be even playable for us.

  3. Yeah, seriously what about Australia?

  4. According to Stephen Reid, if you can GET the game, you can play it. I would assume (carefully mind you) that it wouldn’t matter WHERE you actually were, as long as you had the game client.

  5. I’ve ordered the Standard Edition from Amazon US in July, yet the delivery date still shows as start of January. Are the Amazon US deliveries to Australia being delayed?
