Corellia is a possible playable planet. The earlier video from GameSpot shows sheet music with Corellia Intro (or) Corellia Bkrnd_03. It can be clearly seen @ 4:32.
Anyone who played SWG in the past will remeber this planet and the city Coronet. Which was a major focus point of many a quest.
Corellia (in SWG anyway) had both Alliance & Imperial strongholds, something that would fit well in TOR with the instanced PvP zones.
A big shout out to Chronium from SWTOR forums for posting this and the screen to go with it.

There is new screens, new footage of planets and many many more tip bits. No doubt this video will be taken apart bit by bit.
The planets themselves seem to have more detail than what has been shown before.
I'm sure we will see a great deal of information dragged out of this 1 for sure, enjoy.

Comic-Con International is coming to San Diego, California! Meet up with The Old Republic team at the panel entitled “Beyond Solo: Crafting the Multiplayer Story in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™” on July 23rd from 1:00 to 2:00pm in Room 7AB. Morgan Webb (G4’s X-Play) moderates a discussion with James Ohlen (Studio Creative Director and Lead Designer, BioWare), Drew Karpyshyn (Principal Writer, BioWare), and Alexander Freed (Managing Editor, BioWare) about the creation of the multiplayer, planet-spanning story in Star Wars: The Old Republic. While much attention has been paid to the unique individual stories of each of the eight classes in the game, the team is excited to share their approach to the broader stories players will experience in The Old Republic.Now at 1st glance I got a bit excited at the title, well 1 word "Crafting".
Other things going on at Comic-Con for The Old Republic:

SWTOR has yet to release any kind of pricing plan, it has EA already in a panic.
I would not expect WOW to come to a decision Until a BW + LA come up with a price for there game, and if its subs or MT's. Also how much of a chunk of WOW's domination of the West's gaming community it takes.
WOW sub's seem to have peaked at 11.5 million, and has stagnated there for some time.
Lets hope this forces EA hand to make the game better instead of giving the same updates over and over again.
