Apparently while I was asleep there was a Dev livestream video by the SWTOR team and they snuck in a brief glimpse of player housing. Massively have a link to a video clip featuring this shot of a player apartment on Coruscant.
I have to say housing is a major attraction for me to longer-term engagement in MMOs. Funnily enough I love in EQ2 the view out of the window of my New Halas pad (ice bergs and all). To be able to look at out the sky traffic of the Republic’s capital would be something else!
