Surprise surprise, only Michael Pachter didn't see that one coming.

lol yup... free to play here we come soon :-p
LordMe  +   197d ago
Hope so. I hate paying $120 a year just to play a game. This why I am not on this or FFXIV.

Pachter doesn't know shit about video games

I would love nothing more in the world to play, eso when it comes to ps4. But for sure as shit not paying ANY monthly fee.
ZodTheRipper  +   197d ago
Destiny seems to be 10x better anyway even without having seen much of it. ESO was a total disappointment in my eyes and having a monthly fee just made it that much worse.

Excited for destiny too. I think Bethesda could have a new fallout this winter if it wasn't for wolfenstein and evil within and eso. Which most likely would have easily out sold all three titles combined. Hope I hear ANYTHING at e3. I really doubt it though. Even a war never changes teaser would be awesome.

Sounds like ESO's death rattle.

I preffer $9.99 a month before f2p and hVe everything, that maybe at the end its more expensive to play. Game should be $19.99 + $9.99 a month. Or like guilds wars 2 $60 once and free to play.
LordMe  +   197d ago
I am fine paying $60 and no fee, I don't mind that at all. But if it's a monthly fee, why not make it a free download?
Ghost_Nappa  +   197d ago
To hell with consumers, thats why.
BX81  +   197d ago
Hope it still makes it to consoles
ZodTheRipper  +   197d ago
I for one hope that they just forget ESO and start working on TES:6.
barb_wire  +   197d ago
Anyone get the feeling, that they may not release this on the consoles now.. heck, if it's dead on the PC, I don't see how the console versions are going to make up the shortfall or revenue.
jukins  +   197d ago
Yea but at the same time they're so far along might as well go through with it
GamerEuphoria  +   197d ago
It's been half price for the past two months in the uk.
hellzsupernova  +   197d ago
Ouch Wildstar is next too fall. Pay to Play MMO's are dead unfortuantely
KonsoruMasuta  +   197d ago
Not true. FF: A Realm Reborn is actually doing pretty good.

The Elder Scrolls Online is just a bad game, sadly.

Yeah it is doing good but by what standards? can it sustain it? I would honestly like to give FF a realm reborn a shot looks fantastic I have a friend who plays on playstation but I cannot justify the monthly sub
Ghost_Nappa  +   197d ago
Yep, no way in hell im gonna pay 15 a month for an online elder scrolls game that makes it difficult to play story coop
pennywhyz  +   197d ago
Realm reborn is awsome.

or overpriced MMORPGs... They have to invent a new balanced play & payment method between pay to play and free to play or play to pay or whatever...
KonsoruMasuta  +   197d ago
"Yeah it is doing good but by what standards? can it sustain it?"

If Final Fantasy XI, a game released almost 10 years ago, can still sustain it; Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn should have no problem.

Look at W.o.W, it's still successful.

Pay to Play is far from dead. People will be willing to pay as long as the game is good. I I stated before, Elder Scrolls Online is just not a good game.
Zeixama  +   197d ago
Expect ESO: A Realm Reborn version. Bethesda, will you give me that 10$ horse free? will you? *wink wink*
ShadowKingx  +   197d ago
think everyone saw this coming, the whole reason they delayed it on consoles for another 6 months.
Saryk  +   197d ago
F2P is not the future, if a DEV makes a damn good game, it will sell and make money , plus people will pay a subscription. Look at World of Warcraft!
Parhelion69  +   197d ago
Aaaaand... I still don't care.

Waiting for a proper Elder Scrolls game :)
