somehow I doubt they spent 500 million dollars on one game.

They needed to get the rights to publish the game, so it isn't out of the question it costed that much.

Having made the critically acclaimed KOTOR, you think it would have been hard to aquire rights?

( A serious question )

There is a difference between making a typical game and making a highly marketed MMO that will be highly scrutinized. MMO's need people to buy in month after month, if the game flops then it won't be forgotten easily by the people who were paying the subscription.

Should have made KOTOR 3. Old Republic series is now ruined


LOL i guess no one here probably has played KOTOR 1. Story was way better and interesting, much deeper and gameplay was not a generic mission structure all MMO's have which is collect that, kill that blah blah blah

and they ruined Revan by giving him a generic face, a generic voice and made him appear all bat shit crazy. Thanks Bioware your ruined one of the greatest RPGs of all time

How is it ruined? SWTOR rocks! It's getting alot of positive attention.

C_Menz2290d ago

TOR is essentially just that. It's just they added on MMO features and called it a MMO. Nothing that bad about it unless you expected a full fledged MMO.

It's kotor online so how the phuck wa it ruined?

SJPFTW2290d ago

not even close to what KOTOR was. similarity is in name only

Letros2290d ago (Edited 2290d ago )

Um, its KOTOR + WoW, essentially KOTOR Online, and KOTOR 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Don't like it? Go play KOTOR 1 over, over, and over.

that 500 million plus profit could be made long as users continue to support the game

JonnyBigBoss2290d ago

Sure doesn't feel like it.

OcularVision2290d ago

I guess the voice acting was damn expensive.

Which, might I add, is so damn good!
