I pre-ordered over a year ago, and fully paid for it. Guess I'll have to yank my pre-order and grab the limited edition. Looks like EBgames is only selling the limited online. Thats weird.

SOLD!! I wasn't going to pre-order because I figured most retailers are going to be stocked up on this game, but I will definitely go order the limited edition now :D

It's by Bioware. That's probably all most people need to hear considering their recent track record.
