A number of MMO gold farmers are supremely confident they'll be turning virtual credits into real-life cash that pre-order offers have begun to plague the Internet.
Websites have already been popping up with various names ready to shamelessly hawk credits. Hopefully BioWare has been brainstorming effective ways to curtail the impending market manipulation. Over 1.5 million are registered for the closed beta.
So far EA and BioWare have kept demos of Star Wars: The Old Republic on a very tight leash and haven't let the press wander too far. Soon the closed beta will begin and very lucky users will get the chance to plunge into this highly promising MMO.
Have you ever bought in-game currency before through official channels or otherwise? Star Wars: The Old Republic is expected to launch later this year for PC.
