Quote of the Day

"If you look at Star Wars from EA and BioWare, they estimated a development budget of over $100m. This is an online game for many millions of subscribers, so the publisher does not understand that a subscription model is not the future. With micro-transactions maybe I see the game having a chance but I don't think that EA or BioWare will ever be profitable with this game." Bigpoint CEO Heiko Hubertz on Star Wars: The Old Republic at the London Games Conference (via MCV).

I'm sure there are still legions of fans that will buy this game, however.. the overall sentiment I am seeing on various game sites and in talking with friends is.. "meh... pass"

Of course, that's only based on what we know thus far.

I've seen that too, but honestly I think most people are going to be surprised at how awesome this game ACTUALLY is.

I see big profits, and millions of subscribers.

I was in the beta. Its pretty meh. Its very much like Star Trek online. I will state though that my beta session only lasted 3 days and there were only 2 classes and you could only play to level 10. The best part of the game that is different from any MMO I've played so far is the dialog wheel, so depending on your dialog choices, the quests can change. I'm not sure if that's enough though to set the game apart from the other 100 MMO's out there.

Also we haven't seen any of the flying part of the game, but from what I've read, its on rails, so...yeah...whatever...

I wonder if I just violated my NDA lol...
