SWTOR-Station.com has a short preview of Star Wars: The Old Republic (in German) talking about the things they heard at TOR demo at GamesCom.
Here is a short excerpt translated into English:
And this article will also contain the following information we heard at the demo cinema the last day. As the typical MMO features of the game were enumerated not only PvP, auction houses and crafting were mentioned, but also housing was part of this list. You can imagine that we stared at each other in disbelief! Nothing has been confirmed yet, but it’s a good hint at the fact that conventions make you tired and even BioWare employees let something slip out then.
Thanks to JediDSM for the tip!
