BioWare today revealed three editions of Star Wars: The Old Republic available for pre-order now. This means the game is actually coming out! Upon pre-order, players will be granted a redemption code that will unlock early game access as well as an in-game color stone to change your weapon effect. No word yet on a release date... but it's only the first day of Comic-Con!
The three versions, The Star Wars: The Old Republic Collector’s Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition and Standard Edition, are available for pre-order today at participating retailers, with digital versions available exclusively through EA's new download service, Origin.

As a gamer, I'm already assuming you'll be buying the game, to at least try it out. But I'm curious about whether you're planning on picking up either of the "special" editions?
