I'm a broke college student living off what I can get, but I could still easily manage 15 dollars per month by periodically rummaging my house for loose change every couple of days.
I think you have your priorities wrong. . I am amongst the crowd that does not like the subscription fee. I prefer KOTOR / ME games and I like my purchase of the game to be one time only with unlimited access. After I spend 130 pounds on the Collector, for example, I am asked to pay monthly a certain fee. This might work for some ... and not for others.

Why pay $15 if we have the chance to pay $5? If people didn't pay $15, or enough people complained enough, then game companies wouldn't be charging $15.

I never understood why people fight to keep prices high.

Simple solution.

Don't buy the collector's addition and use the amount saved to cover the subscription fee. A wrong priority would be not being able to afford the 15 dollar per month subscription fee then buying a collectors addition for almost 3x the price of the original game.

Games like KOTOR and ME aren't meant to get constant updates and content. Most people who don't like the sub fee haven't played MMOs and don't actually know WHY it's there.

Wait.. so a news story is taking something someone said out of context to make it seem far more sensational than it actually was?

NO WAY!

I watched this video yesterday, and the actual answer kind of spun into a joke for a sec during Q&A at the end, leading to that statement.

I'll see if I can find the exact place in the video, but it's over 50 minutes long.. starts at 32:22

It's actually a great video for anyone to watch who's remotely interested in the game.

I'm willing to bet the only people who will ever truly be able to make a "wow-killer" is Blizzard......with WoW II

I seriously hope TOR won't have any DLC like all other Bioware games. Imagine having to pay $15 per month and additional $10 for lets say, a new world. Now that would be lame.
Hope there's only monthly fee, free minor patches and huge expansions every year or two, just like other normal MMO games.

The monthly fee is what pays for regular patches and small content releases.

There will of course be major expansions you'll be buying far down the road, though. It's just how the MMO business model works (except for Eve?).

Ok 500 worlds is too much. WAY too much. i want to have favorites, with that many I wont even be able to hit them all much less remember them.

Though i guess 12 years is a long time. still though that's 42 a year, 3.5 a month. basically a new one every weekish. That's a hard pace to keep up with for anyone but the most hardcore player.

I'm glad they're ambitions though; at least they're not going to p**sy out and let it die because they're afraid of losing money like so many other MMOs.
