Star Wars: The Old Republic PTR Patch

The Star Wars: The Old Republic website has word that a new version 2.3 game update is now available on the Play Test Server for the Star Wars MMORPG, though word is you will already need a high-level character copied over to participate: "Game Update 2.3 is now live on our Public Test Server! For those of you that already have high level, copied characters on our Public Test Server, we encourage you to explore the CZ-198 moon and two new Czerka Flashpoints. Get on, check everything out, and give us your feedback by posting on the Public Test Server forum. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to offer the ability to copy characters for this test nor will there be any rewards offered for testing. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause."

You guys haven't included marketing costs for the game. And no ongoing costs for the first 11 months? Development costs are only part of the equation. Your link is for development costs only.

Here's a full all-in estimate...

500 million

Not to mention the sub revenue estimates I gave you we're the most they could possibly have gotten.

None of us know for sure, but I'm sure if the game was profitable they would have not gone to F2P and stayed with their subscription model. Or got rid of most of the senior guys involved with this fiasco.
