game.co.uk says (the Web version of the shop the earlier photo was taken at):
Release Date: 01/03/2011
Some games are really a “must-buy” even if you only play them occasionally. That is the classification many are giving to TOR.
Specific pre-order dates will not be available until there is a more concrete release date of the game but this is not stopping some game shops from starting the ball rolling early. They know that customers are going to want SW:TOR and they want to be the first to be able to offer it.
Allow the pre-order deals to commence!
