    I wasn't talking about your sensationalist title Sammy. I was talking about the content of your post, which was factually inaccurate.

    You can not buy the game "anywhere" for $40 or even $50.

    Those things are not true. 

    Brand new:  Ebay for $40. 

    Craigslist retailers selling for $40 and they'll email you the key.

    Amazon sellers:  $40.

     

    Yep, you can't buy it anywhere for $40.  Search button is your friend!

    You misunderstand. 

     

    this is what the OP said:

     

    "You can now purchase it anywhere from 40 USD to 47 USD." 

     

    He's saying anywhere you go to buy it, it's 40 - 47 dollars.  So sure, you can buy it from ebay for that price second hand (which is always a shady proposition when talking about PC games with serial keys)  but you can't buy it ANYWHERE for that price within the context of the op

     

    Saying " you can buy it anywhere for $40" is saying that everyone is selling it for $40. Which is STILL untrue.

     

    Also, just looking at your ebay link, it says "more than 10 copies available" obviously a very limited supply.  Actually, just tried it, he has 13 available. LOL Hardly a retailer.

    I managed to get it for 32.95 from sendit a UK online retailer but thats about the lowest I've seen it for over here . Apparently they keep having to order more stock for it in large retailers like Game because it sells out so fast they are having a job keeping up with demand . So I think it will probably take a month or two before online retailers sell it for around 25 uk pounds . Given its continued popularity it may retain the higher price for longer than that .

    Its the fastest selling mmo ever and the momentum doesn't seem to be slowing just yet . They wont cut it untill it does .

    I can get a doorstop for 2 bucks. 40 is still a little high.

    Amazon and few others have dropped the price on SWTOR. You can now purchase it anywhere from 40 USD to 47 USD.

     

     

    you can now purchase it anywhere from 40-47 dollars.

     

    Wouldnt I have just said hey purchase it from anywhere FOR 40 to 47 dollars if thats what i meant.?????

    Eh, for the record, you could buy SWTOR on Amzaon (3rd party) for under 60 bucks even before it launched. Just sayin...

    I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.

    It is all right i know you want to say it.... game is failing..just let it out lol

    nothing personal, but I think it's a great game, a lot of fun. It seems like you have an agenda?

  • tachgbtachgb Member UncommonPosts: 791

    Considering how over priced the game was selling for for the initial rush, it's good the price has come down a bit. EA and their bloody expensive games!

    Grammar. It's your friend. 

     

    So if I can get it "ANYWHERE" for 40 bucks, why isn't gamestop or amazon or best buy selling it for $40? Is there some secret way to get that price from those retailers?  Didn't think so.  

     

    Keep on trollin

     Dubyahite, you are terrible at reading! "anywhere from" is indicating the range of the price not the place of purchase. And you insist that Amazon didn't lower its price even though he posted a pic that said $59.99 $52.00. That is Amazon lowering the price. Everything in the OP is completely factual. The only thing holding back your understanding is your bias and lack of reading comprehension. swtor is on sale Dubyahite. Deal with it!

    You should really back up your information before posting blindly.

    Amazon is still charging $59.95, the 46.00 you are seeing is from (moviesmusicgames) another companie who distribute through amazon. Click on new and choose Amazon.com;  $59.95

    Edit: Amazon has not dropped the price on TOR. Other sellers who use amazon to sell have. This isn't a cry towards fanboi'dom this is to tell others to look closely before you buy so you get the best deal.

    Sooo some guy is selling it on eBay for $40 and that means the price has dropped?

    False. The retail price is the same.

    If you like buying pc games second hand off eBay then go nuts, nothing wrong with that.

    And I'll admit to misunderstanding the wording of the OP. I see that he meant a price range.

    This doesn't change the fact that he claimed Amazon dropped the price. They didn't. Some guy selling stuff out of his basement might have.

    It's sad that EA had to resort to boycotting key titles in order to push Origin as a viable competitor on the digital sales market.

    But its somehow NOT sad for Valve to do the exact same thing with its games? double standard much?

     

    Gotta love all the whining about EA doing something Valve has been doing for almost a decade.

     

    But there's a reason Steam is a huge success and Origin nor GFWL never will be.

     

    SWTOR sales would double in a week were it stuck on Steam for 40% off or so.

    I'm more worried for the people playing that this drop is to grab as many people as possible and try to milk cash before leaving the game hanging. Putting the actual game to the side, a lot of what is going on with the game spells out they are trying to cash in as much as possible as quick as possible from this game. I guess the big budget would be a reason, but it just seems almost like they want to milk the game and drop it as soon as the most profit is made for it.
