Walmart SWTOR Pre-Order Fiasco

Uh-oh! Sounds like Walmart has goofed on gamers who pre-ordered copies of SWTOR from the retail giant. Great concern surfaced today from customers who had preordered their copies of SWTOR from Walmart only to find out that the retailer had cancelled their status but failed to notify buyers of the news. The official forums for the game were set ablaze overnight with complaints from gamers who say they preordered from Walmart but that when they went to check on their order it said they were cancelled on Saturday “due to a lack of product availability.” You can imagine the panic that ensued as gamers worried whether or not they would be getting their copy of the game, especially with the launch date quickly approaching.

Early Game Access Could be Up to 5 Days

Will you get early game access to SWTOR for pre-ordering the game? That is the word on the street but many people who have already pre-ordered complained about not getting their code or about not knowing how long the early game access will last. Will it be days? Weeks? Hours? After anxiously awaiting months to years for it, people want to know when they are going to get it. The order in which you redeem your Pre-order Code is the order in which you will gain Early Game Access before the game’s official release. This part seems to mean that it will be staggered based on when you pre-ordered the game. So does this mean that those who pre-ordered the earliest will get a full 5 days of early game access and those who pre-ordered later may get less time?
