    I don't see why it wouldn't be...but I'm not certain.
    Star Wars' (EA's) main online gaming website sold out of the Collector's Edition within a few minutes of going live.

    The other websites for GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, etc... require paying the full price of the game when completing the pre-order. If you go into one of these stores though, it usually costs about $20-25 to place the pre-order "hold" payment.

    I ordered thru GameStop. The redemption code was printed on the receipt and I was able to go onto the SWTOR.com website and register immediately for the early access (date has not been set yet).

    Amazon doesn't charge until the item ships on pre-orders I thought.

    Wait, so I can't treat it like any other game and go in store and put 5$ down?
    I plan on buying it no matter what, but that is weird.

    Also, anyone have info on if this is compatible with a mac?

    I wouldn't fret. I'm sure they'll make a mac client once they get the game stabilized and running. I know it sucks, but it'll happen.

    Not to mention, though the draw to play upon release is HUGE, MMO launches universally tend to SUCK! Better to let the player base settle into their servers and let a few patches roll out before jumping on. So, in that vein, having to wait for the Mac client might be a boon.

    I am looking forward to this but I just hope it is not another Star Wars: Galaxies.

    After watching a lot of Comic-Con videos on this game I am just even more depressed that it isn't coming to Mac.
    I just don't see how any development company could ignore such a big market....

    My guess is that they want to minimize any sort of issues that will inevitably crop up at launch. Easier to identify it if they don't have to worry about which line of code from which platform if causing it. It's not about ignoring it. More about getting it right.
