Star Wars Galaxies Details

Last night (here in the UK anyway) Lucas Arts issued a press release revealing the launch date and pricing plan for their highly anticipated MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided. After missing several launch dates already the game should now be available to buy in shops as of June 26th with the pricing plan ranging from $14 per month down to $12 per month as part of a years subscription to the service. However, the press release issued by Lucas Arts fails to mention to which territories it applies, hopefully us Europeans won?t be left waiting.

$15 a month? That's not immense, but damn. That's $180 a year, unless you buy the year at $144.

Im looking forward to the release jsut so I can take a peek at the SGW forum and watch all the pedant fanboys bicker over trite, meaningless details. Kinda like its done on a daily basis on the EQ boards, or the AO boards. Only jsut about 10 times worse. :D

I really don't see why people are complaing about the price of subscriptions to MMORPGs.... I mean thats one trip to the movies with a date or yourself plus popcorn and a drink.... and those will only last you 2 hours at the most.. where as SWG, EQ, and AO can give you how every much entertainment you want.... plus they give you a month free. I think that the 14 dollar price tag is more than worth it for a game like Star Wars Galaxies... there just so much to do and get involved, plus theres so much potental there.

Also, I agree with Alucard that right now the game is just a shadow of what it will be.... but really... it's a good thing that those things aren't in the final version of the game, as goes land based vechicles and becoming a Jedi... trust me when I say it's going to be a few months before anybody is going to have the credits to buy a simple jumpheap of a speeder and even more so it's going to be much longer before you see a jedi running around. If SWG is only a shadow of what it's going to be right now then honestly... the shadow is a lot better than a bunch of MMORPGs right now.

Duh, folks.... it's the launch of a game.... not everything is going to be availible to go right out of the box.... I was a Beta 3 tester and it's going to take some time getting your faction standing up enough, for that matter weapons skills are going to need to be boosted up.... folks it's a MMORPG, this is NOT a instant gratifcation type of game... like with anything that evetually is a great experence, your going to have to put some time and money into it.

I'm talking about the red HAND mark on youer CHEEK man, and i'm not talking about a arse cheek either, shesh... get you mind out of the gutta boya! Still thats over priced for me, I mean I can buy a DVD for the price of two movie tickets, I can buy a 2 liter for about maybe 2, I can make popcorn 10 times better than that at the movies at my house for 3 dollars AND I would be only a outfit away from the priceless moment ::grins:: and more comfortable too.

Average price for a new DVD where I live is about 15 bucks... give or take... and no... but it's nice to know you have somebody to watch a movie with Atari (Just kidding, take nothing serious about the last part man)
