The Elder Scrolls Online Will Be Pay-To-Play

Blaine Smith of Camelot Post writes:

There was a huge variety of exciting announcements at E3 and many members of the gaming press had their first opportunity to sample the world of The Elder Scrolls Online, however it’s not all good news. The question on everyone’s lips “Will The Elder Scrolls Online be free-to-play?”. If you asked me a week ago, I would have said yes. The current success of pay-to-play titles is under question and even the biggest names in the P2P genre have been transferring to alternate subscription models. However, after an interview with President of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida, I’m fully expecting The Elder Scrolls Online to be pay-to-play.

As long as it don't cost the same as WoW, Then it's fine...

But make sure that the game is fixed before shipping... Exploits ruin MMO's...

Also, No MTX crap please!

Wow really isn't that expensive though. :/

Well if you aren't living off your parents paycheck its not.

Yeah... I'm not going to be paying £92.28 each year for something which gets boring after 3 months...

And if you must know, I get £486 per month but £300 goes on bills... The rest on the shopping... So yes it is expensive.

FYI, WoW is the most expensive MMO out there.

Sounds to me like you should stay away from gaming in general...

you are living beyond your means.

How many MMOs have said this, and then cratered and gone F2P?

I think The Elder Scrolls has a better chance than most at making subscriptions stick though.

Ah well I guess I'll be skipping it then.

@GadgetGooch - You're right. This article doesn't confirm what the headline claims.

Are you for real? All the guy is saying is that you will need a PS+ subscription to play these games online not that you will need to pay another subscription for these games to be played, All you have done is manipulate the quotes and your heading to get hits, Sort it out guy.

Why would they make it a premium title on console and free on PC? It makes no sense. However, it makes sense for them to make a pay-to-play MMO a premium feature on console. Basic logistics.
