Let's not forget, on consoles you are paying internet access, PS+ or XBox Live for multiplayer, and then ESO sub fees. Yeah, that'll go over well.

Exactly dude. What I've been saying. They can get away with that pricing model on PC's maybe (although I think a hybrid model at $10/month is more realistic), but it's not going to work on consoles. People are too trendy with their games in that format and the dual ecosystems bring a different dynamic. Makes much more sense to ditch subs for consoles and go a different route, which is why I suggested different payment methods for consoles. GW2 model for consoles, cheaper sub/future WoW model for PC. Like I said, though, publishers seem reluctant to try anything new when it comes to pricing...seems they'd rather fail.
