"Star wars will be the last paid subscription game"

Addict of Fiction looks at some quotes from a recent conference and various predictions:

"Next, Star Wars will be the last paid subscription game? That’s a little difficult, but I don’t think it’s right. Gamers, as a whole tend to try and only have one monthly subscription game from what I’ve heard. And dragging a gamer from one game that they’re pretty much married to is difficult, but Star Wars is doing just that"

It's hard to say at this point I'd say. I know WoW is losing lots of players left and right but not so much because of the subscription fees but rather I think people are just growing tired of it at this point and are moving elsewhere to other MMO's. SWTOR will be interesting to see how it does. It is nearing 1 million retail preorders and who knows how many digital but I'll be checking that one out for sure.

not a chance, wow lost customers but they still have 10 million subs with another mmo in development... I do think consoles will die eventually, because we wont need them. That being said about consoles, we arent at the point where they are useless yet.

quit making articles on the same topic based off of some random guy on the internet's quote.

time will tell and nothing else. not pachter, not some guy from "gamesbrief"

i hate game journalism and all its obvious struggles and attempts at garnering hits to their shit websites. it has to be the most amateur ridden, fanboy infested field i've ever seen.

I'm on the beta it's basically WoW meets Star Wars

the story elements make it cool though, Im not even usually a story kind of guy either.

I feel it has enough to really differentiate it from WoW, but combat does feel similar.
