i believe this game will be 8.99 a month upon release though this game wont be released the date they have advertised as im sure i read somewhere it was postponed indefinitely for ps3? if i can find a link ill post it
There are a few problems with this game even on PC The release date has been put back for the PS3 release at present no-one is paying any fees for playing this game,Sqare Enix have been good enough to admit it isnt finished and is letting players play it for free untill further notice,other MMo companies should take note!!! the EA Warhammer fiasco for example!!!
I honestly don't understand why you should pay monthly for a game you already paid for. I mean, you pay for the game (to buy it), the Ps3 or PC and the internet connection and you still have to pay monthly to play? And what do they mean they're "letting us play for free"? If you actually purchase the game that's not playing for free!
How about you go and visit a game studio where online games are made, take a good look on their papers of who shall be payed every single month, its from the Janitor to the toilett paper, Electrical bills and the rent of the place they are at, licenses to coffie mugs..you get the idea
You pay a monthly fee since it cost alot to have the servers running, and the staff that maintan the servers and updating the game, should be paid..month to month
By just buying the game once wont cover the cost if they run it online for 4 years And YOUR internet bill do not benefit the game companies whatsoever..thats like thinking "Why should i pay so much for a car when the gasoline is so expensive"...logic dude, logic
