Free, with a "Premium" service with extra features.

I refuse to pay $120 a year for a game (Same reason I am not of FFXIV:ARR)

But with a Premium account style they can still make money and cover servers, and the players get extra content (Those willing to pay)

For people with a job $120 a year is peanuts considering the amount of entertainment you can squeeze from a good MMORPG. As far as value for money goes MMO games are crazy good value, rivalled only by services like Netflix etc.

Of course, you need to be into those kinds of games in the first place.

I have a job, and I could prolly afford it, but paying out that much money is just wrong to me.

Admittedly I am all for paying for what you enjoy, so if you like it, by all means have fun! But for me I just can't seem to justify it in my own mind.

People I know who pay for mmos monthly; play the mmo religiously and the odd aa game here and there and that's it in terms of gaming.

First of all it's $180 a year not $120. If you take that and the price of the game, as well as the price of having online service for a year I can almost buy a PS4, I could instead buy 4 others games that would give me the same time of gameplay and a far wider range of experience. If you wanted to take it into account for two years of playing this game that's $540 (again including purchase of the game and online service since it is required for X1). I have a job, but this game just didn't wow me enough to commit to something like that on console. I would much rather have a new Fallout.

If the game plays more like Skyrim and less like all the other MMO's then I will be enticed to pay well.

Obviously it shouldn't be free. I assume you mean it should be 'free to play', which is very different to "free".

Meltic2178d ago (Edited 2178d ago )

Why in the World should we pay for that crap. I rather pay for the witcher 3 online game than that.

Volkama2178d ago

If your comment was literally "it should be free" because you don't rate it as worth paying for... then I apologise for misinterpreting. That's a far less stupid thing to say.

Though I don't personally agree with your opinion.

Game is gonna suck.They should pay me for playing it and wasting my time.

$60 - 120 with no fees.

Volkama2178d ago (Edited 2178d ago )

Or fees with no $60 dollars. I can see merit in providing a game as a service.

The box price + service price will always be hard for people to swallow (even though it's typical throughout many services you can pay for).
