First guy who gets the game will be mentioned on the main site in the news :)

Also tell us in what store you get it!

07-16-2003, 11:21 AM
If the person in question can provide a photo that would be ultra cool. Which, of course, will double as validation of your claim!

07-16-2003, 03:29 PM

I got the game about three hours ago at my local gamestop.

Words can't describe this game. It's everything I imagined and better.

Much better.

07-18-2003, 09:54 AM
Walmart, Target, K-Mart, EB, Best Buy, MediaPlay ... all were either sold out or hadn't received their stock yet.

Dejected, I took my kid to Toys R Us. While browsing around their video games section the stock boy brought out 20 copies.

The 'happy dance' soon followed. Stayed up 'till 3 AM playing it. Went to work at 6.

Man your nuts!!! :D
I wanted to do that but was still tired because I had a final yesterday.

07-18-2003, 01:10 PM
i got it at EB and i also bought the prima strategie guide for 20% off hehehehe....... havent used it yet though...I"M SO HAPPY:D

07-18-2003, 01:48 PM
I got it and this game blows my mind. It is so much fun!! Oh I got mine at Gamestop in Westboro Massachusetts even though I have a feeling most people shouldnt have to hard of a time finding the game now:D

07-18-2003, 10:39 PM
Got mine at EB yesterday. It was scary!! The guy asked if I had pre-ordered my copy and I said no...and he told me I should looking at me kinda sideways. I almost collapsed...luckily he was just messing around and he gave me the 4th last copy of the 50 they had outside of pre-orders!! It blew my mind.

You're my hero. Any dad that stays up til 3 AM playing a game and does the happy dance is ok in my book. :D

*does the happy dance*

07-19-2003, 07:38 AM
Got the game a day earlier than expected, so I let my brother play while I read the manual(I had a barebones idea of how the d20 rules worked) so tommorrow, er sorry, today, in about 3-4 hours when I wake up I will make my own character :D :D :D

07-19-2003, 01:51 PM
I got the game at Best Buy last night at around 7pm and just stoped playing it.

07-20-2003, 02:03 AM
I got it at GameStop along with the last guide on June 16, at 3:24 pm :)

I'm not lying about that time either :o

I had my little sister call around town to see who gets it in while I went to work for my neighbor for the day. BestBuy, Target, and Wal-Mart didn't get it until the 17th. TRUs didn't get it until the 18th. Blockbuster and Hollywood video did not get it until the 19th. I couldn't wait much longer. She finally found GameStop in the yellow pages and they said they'd get it in at 2 pm. I headed home at 2, ate lunch (after working non-stop for 5 hours, yes, I needed to eat before I headed out) washed up (had wood stain all over my clothes and body, couldn't leave like that either) and talked online with that special someone. Had to say what I must before I got this game.

I was right, it is hard to decide which to do. Talk to her or play KotOR. Don't worry, this game isn't that good that I'd blow her off for it :p Although, I do like it much more than Dark Forces, my previous all time favorite game. :) High praise from some guy most of you don't even know!

Grrrr, bear with me and my long posts. Don't worry, I'll get lazy soon, even when talking about this game :p

07-20-2003, 05:01 AM
I got it in the mail yesterday-saturday.....my sister came in to work (we both work at the same place) and i asked if it came and she said it did. :D when i got off work at 8, went home, tore open the package, popped it in the xbox, set up my character, and played for 5 hours STRAIGHT, minus supper, which didn't last too long. =] best game ever? hell yeah.

the battle system is pretty nice, since it requires you to use strategy, and you can see your opponents health meter. my head hurts, haven't played a game straight like that in so long...must get some rest so i can play all day again tomorrow. :D

Uhm, yeah, I guess so...

What are 36 hours of fun compared to a few downloadable items anyway?

Seriously, what the hell do you expect from a console game? Most are at 15-20 hours of fun...

12-12-2003, 10:15 PM
I got KotOR, I think Nov. 20th.

12-14-2003, 08:47 PM
Beat in in 36 hours...35 hours...???? U didnt get the full experience...i know people who play 70+ hours and try to do everything, and explore everywhere... and besides its a good game to restart to try diferent skills and classes and feats, and team members, and force powers, and....yeah u get the point ;)

12-15-2003, 05:29 AM
it is a rather short game, but thats why you start another one because theres like differnet endings for both light and dark side characters and stuff

12-29-2003, 11:20 AM
Bought mine the day after Christmas (got an X-Box as a gift...only thing I asked for)! Have put in about 18 1/2 hrs. in three days(despite the protestations of my wife). Three words: 1) Best 2)
Game 3) ever. Oh, yeah: bought it at Blockbuster. 30 bucks for a
used copy, and it plays just as well as a new one.

I picked up the 2003 Game of the Year for the RPG genre on Wednesday December 8, 2004. By that time of course it was already a platinum seller but it only cost me $19.99 at Best Buy. :D I've never been a heavy duty gamer but KotOR really struck a chord with me and I couldn't stop playing it.

Hmmm... don't know if I will be able to hold out long enough to let the price for TSL drop before buying it, now that I know how good the game is...

To buy or not to buy... that is the question

***pulls hair out in frustration ***

03-16-2005, 09:56 PM
You know, KoTOR was the sole reason for me getting an XBox. I forgot the date though, but based on the dates of this old thread, I'd say late summer of 2003. It was at a Target, IIRC.

03-17-2005, 12:35 AM
Does the platinum version of KOTOR for the xbox, include the Yavin 4 station?

Darth Covetous
09-15-2005, 08:49 AM
This could go under I just got the game..again. Played it a bunch when it first came out, got rid of it. Bought KOTOR 2 when it came out, played it a bunch, got rid of it. Now I'm back to playin KOTOR again, had to go buy it, just missed it too much.

10-08-2005, 11:10 PM
Just got my copy... Im a late bloomer to this game. Im not much of a fan of RPG's because they can be boring and take too long. Still this one is immerssive and has a excellent storyline deserving of the name Star Wars. My only gripe is that it is really laggy and buggy no matter what settings I use... and yes I have more than the minimum requirements!

Really I just want to get of Taris! See more of those awesome movies, etc....

12-11-2005, 02:02 AM
i got mine at eb

01-29-2006, 08:14 PM
I got KotOR I & II from play.com last christmas, I finished them quite quickly and it looks like i've missed alot of stuff so now i'm playing them again, lol.

02-03-2006, 07:42 AM
well i got mine 4 days ago (27 january 2006) LOL. i love this game so much

It's like a movie, you have to see it over and over to learn more about it. In KOTOR, you try different things and end up getting different results.

04-24-2006, 08:29 PM
wow.... i didn't think that this little old game sells so much still.

04-25-2006, 05:53 AM
it does :)
coes its soooo cool :)

i got a real bargin on mine i got kotor1 and 2 for $16 of one and the other free it was great but then again knowing the guy that provided canderous voice also made it easier we got two copies for $16 just because the guy reconised us from the game we liked it a lot

08-16-2006, 11:40 AM
I found it on Gamestop for 10 bucks and I ordered it yesterday. It should be coming in tomorrow or Friday, along with the clone wars game. I wonder how KOTOR will look on the 360.

I got the game! :D :p

It came with Star Wars: Best of PC (it was only $20 :p), so I have all of the full games up and I've played Knights of the Old Republic, the most out of all the games that game with it. Though, I must say, the beginning is somewhat slow. But, I am sure that it gets better once you get further into the game. ;)

10-28-2007, 03:58 PM
Well, I bought mine, if I recall right, one week later the release: pure accidental, as the game I really wanted were out on the store. But, after getting Kotor, I completely forgot about this game.

10-29-2007, 08:46 PM
just got my original xbox back several months ago and bought KOTOR for the second time and got KOTOR 2 last week, but I'm just now getting around to this forum :P

03-12-2009, 01:38 PM
just bought KOTOR for the first time three weeks ago and finished.

You won't be finding a legal download for this game, unless LA decides to host K1 and TSL on Steam like with what they did with the recent string of older, harder-to-find games. Otherwise, just keep searching local stores for the game.

Try Amazon (if you don't mind a used copy) (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00006IR62/sr=8-5/qid=1251033550/ref=olp_tab_used?ie=UTF8&coliid=&me=&qid=1251033550&sr=8-5&seller=&colid=&condition=used)

08-23-2009, 04:22 PM
Amazon has it listed at $99.94 (http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Knights-Old-Republic-Pc/dp/B00006IR62) for that it should be in a solid gold box!

I am looking around town to see if I can find a used copy.

07-04-2012, 05:44 AM
Just got KOTOR for Mac a few days ago. Its good to be able to play this game after a long hiatus.

04-22-2014, 03:10 AM
I got K1 new, K2 used and Jedi Academy new from Amazon for 58 dollars in total. Shipping charges were about a quarter of the price.
