Hellgate: London Lifetime Subscription Fee Revealed

The Hellgate: London Pre-order Benefits Page drops the other shoe on news that preorders would include a "Founder's Club" lifetime subscription offer (story), and it's a pretty expensive shoe, at that. The update reveals a $149.99 price tag for this lifetime subscription, adding codicils that clarify that the online game's lifetime is the span of the offer, rather than the user's lifetime, and that this span is completely undetermined, as "the online subscription component may be cancelled at any time, without any refunds or other compensation to the user." Word is:

Eligibility for the Hellgate: London Founders Offer
This limited-time offer allows you to make a one-time purchase of $149.99 USD to upgrade your Live online account to a lifetime subscription*. Please note that this offer expires after November 30, 2007. The Founders Offer will be available to you on your Account Management page once the retail game ships and you log into your Live account.

* "Lifetime Subscription" refers to the lifetime of the online subscription component for Hellgate: London, not the user's lifetime. Lifetime Subscription memberships are only available until November 30, 2007 for pre-order purchasers of Hellgate: London from participating retailers. Prior to purchasing a Lifetime Subscription, the purchasers of the Hellgate: London must complete their purchase of the Hellgate: London software and create a Hellgate: London online subscription account. The user acknowledges and agrees that: (a) the Hellgate: London online component, including, but not limited to the online subscription component may be cancelled at any time, without any refunds or other compensation to the user; (b) the Lifetime Subscription does not automatically grant access to expansions of Hellgate: London which are sold as individual products, as such products must be purchased separately; (c) the user must accept and abide by the End User License Agreement for Hellgate: London and the Terms of Service, Code of Conduct and Privacy Policy for the Hellgate: London online component, as each are modified from time to time, at all times prior to the purchase of a Lifetime Subscription; and (d) in addition to the foregoing, Ping0, LLC retains the right to cancel a Lifetime Subscription as set forth in the Terms of Service to the Hellgate: London online component.

Holy crap. This sounds like a terrible idea. Either I don't have a clue about how much the gaming community is willing to put up with, or Flagship doesn't.

Who in their right minds would spend so much money up front on a product that could end up being a huge flop and be abandoned within a few months?
