No one is up in arms. My initial point was it isn't a good value. I pointed out two games that were of better value. You got night vision goggles for a bit less for the first Modern Warfare and a rc vehicle for the second. If someone likes what the $150 price break for star wars offers then they will get it. It just seems pretty steep for me. I will get the regular version and be happy.

I'm sure the game will be fun. I really like RPGs, so this is right up my alley.

Everyone is all up in arms because charging twice the usual price of the average MMO CE is a sleazy thing to do.

Seriously, the most I've ever seen for a MMO CE edition is around $90. The fact that EA is charging $150 just goes to show that they don't mind taking advantage of their customers. Hell, when the digital CE version is as much as most boxed versions that come with a bunch of stuff, you know they don't mind ripping them off.

Can they do it?...sure. Will people buy it?...no doubt. Is it a dick move on their part?...absolutely!

Yeah the $150 is a bit crazy. Granted you don't have to buy it, but there should be some kind of intermediate offering.

ElL33t to respond to your earlier post you did make a great point that you can get your money's worth from the first free month. I say go for it if you're looking forward to it. Good chance I'll be doing the same despite my hesitation.

I pre-ordered the game. As mentioned, I too play most games less than a month and spend $60 on those games. I don't see how you can go wrong. This is a Star Wars game after all.

I'm a pretty hardcore Star Wars fan and I almost spit tea out of my nose because of your last two lines. Star does not guarantee a good game, in fact it generally means just the opposite. For every decent Star Wars game out there, there are a dozen horrible ones.

I pre-ordered the game, and I'm hoping it's good, but I can see a million ways it could go wrong and thinking it will be good based on IP alone isn't something I would do.

How early do you guys think the early access would be? I just want to experience the game for its Star Wars theme but not have to shell out 60 bucks for it. I really liked that WOW had that 10 day trail, and of course LOTRO is now f2p. Thats the only 2 I have played so far.

Unless I missed it they have not said how early you will get the early access. For all I know the early access will be 1 day before everyone else.

I used to be really opposed to the monthly subscription games. One day I realized, this is just about the cheapest form of entertainment I have. I take the wife to a movie and with drinks and popcorn we spent $30. That only lasts 2 - 3 hours. I can play WoW unlimited hours a month for $15. Free is better, but $15 is really not a bad deal at all.

My guess is 1-2 days for early access. Don't see them having it be more than that.

How is it? I heard it was WoW with a star wars theme and bioware-style conversation trees...
