notice I only pay $39.99 for directtv......a game (no offence to PS).....payin 98 bucks for just 2 accounts is just wrong, I get WAY more channels on Dtv-and enjoyment for 39 buckeroos-A MONTH!!!


sry bout the flame....i dont seem happy today....really...
$49.99 = price of the game to buy, in the shops.

$10 approx = monthly fee for connection to their world servers and maintainance of accounts etc.

buying a game = obtaining an account.

The only way to obtain account is to buy the game. Therefore if you want a second account you buy another copy of the game.

Why would you want to have a second account is beyond me, except to cheat and have characters on the same world server in different empires. That is the only reason, its not like EQ where 2nd accounts provide many uses. This is a PvP not PvE game...

So it would be $20 per month for 2 accounts (given a $10 per acc. fee), plus the purchase price of 2 copies of the software.

i dont believe anyone has their resolution high enough that they need all caps to read, which means your yelling for some reason. Atleast the name fits, asside from the fact we can see your post.


In any case, you only buy the game once (twice for another account) and then 10 a month per account. How much did your direct tv dish and install cost? I think after 2 or 3 months PS will turn out to be cheaper.

Im in beta now, and id pay 20 a month if i didnt keep getting disconnected. You have no idea how good this game is.

$12.95 is fine.

Most likely weekly updates, reliable servers, devs working 5 days a week to improve the game. GM's online most days of the week to help out, being _paid_ to help out so its in their best interest to actually help.

People that complain about a monthly fee for this game, need to imagine what it would be like playing PS on battle.net's servers.

Yeah.

I hope they do like they did with EQ and allow you to pay for 6 months at a time at a disscounted rate.

ROFL, exactly. If you need money get a job. If you have a job and still cant afford 12 bucks a month you need to look into another job.

The developers of planetside are not responsible for whatever other financial obligations you have placed on yourself when setting a price for their game.

The simple fact is, your idea of $5 a month is NOT ENOUGH. SOE will probably be paying $50,000 a month just for ISP connection charges to their servers. That doesn't include paying employees, electricity, insurance, space, equipment, equipment upgrades, software, software upgrades, property taxes, water, food, etc, etc, etc. Once all the overhead is covered, they still need to make money (that is the whole idea here, if you didn't know).

ive only been playing these type games ..for hmmm 20 years
I can say with some authority that you were not playing a first person shooter in 1983. Blatant exageration does not help your already weak arguement.
