Default The Old Republic (PC)

This is the Bioware MMO - Star Wars and Bioware, the perfect combination?

Four part video here which shows quite a bit of gameplay

Only half way through it but so far it looks a lot better than I expected. Although it does look quite like a single player game and not sure how the whole MMO thing comes in yet.... But that may be revealed in the rest or at a later stage

I don't like the whole MMO concept, but this could change my mind, espeically if they brought it to 360

Anyone interested?

This is definitely one a lot of people I know a waiting for on the pc. need to wait for more info to come out but from what I have heard and seen so far it could be quite good one to watch for sure.

Watched the first two videos. Great looking game but I'm not a fan of monthly subscriptions (which they'll more than likely go with).

I'm very very keen on this game, but quite dismayed to see there's currently no plans for any console release. I suppose things may change before its released (2010? 2011?) but still quite dissapointing.

Yeah I'm so hoping this will come to 360 because I most likely won't buy it if it's just on PC. Don't really like the idea of paying each month either.... Hmmmm

Even if it does come out on console (which I doubt) you'll still have to pay a monthly fee.

yes that can happen sadly. I had huge trouble but finally got through on the second day of sign ups and then my inbox got bombarded with over 50 emails from my attempts at signing up. to check that it has gone through try logging in and checking your account there should be 2 boxes down the bottom one will say submitted data for testing and the second filled in contact details if both of these boxes have blue ticks you have successfully signed up for the beta.
