Star Wars: The Old Republic Codex

An update to the Star Wars: The Old Republic Developer Blog introduces the Codex in the upcoming MMORPG, which will allow the player an overview of the game's story, similar to other BioWare games like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Here's word on the Codex, which is already 20% larger than a typical Star Wars novel: "For The Old Republic, we took the best of both systems, using our codex to not only elaborate on the settings you fight in and the creatures you kill, but also to plant seeds of knowledge relating to key personages and concepts from your class story and long-lost lore meant to give more feedback at large. We sketched out what we wanted, and told the writers to get to work. "

I've heard the 300 Million number before too... and for as big as the game is supposed to be... and fully voiced... I tend to believe the 300 Million more than the 80 Million number. But then again... that 80 Million doesn't include what Lucas Arts may have contributed.

Nor what was invested prior to EA purchasing BioWare. The earliest development on TOR began in 2005, with the engine being licensed in '06 I believe. Though those early years probably weren't too costly.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
