As for teh sub numbers in the Massively article - there th only numbers out there compiled by any firm and don't you think if EA could rekiably claim 1 million or 2 million active subscriptions (and not just "registered accounts") they would have done a major press release like they have with every other SWToR milestone to date?
As for "Skipping STO going F2P" - please, were ON teh STO F2P boards; so andyone reading this knows STO went F2P.
Your links in that post doesn't support you actually.
EA CEO said the game needs 500,000 to be profitable. The 1 million number in the LA Times was what the reporter added not even in quotes or saying who said that. The 500,000 to be profitable was a quote by the EA CEO.
So to show an example:
CEO of Ford in an interview says, "We need to sell 500,000 cars next quarter to make a profit."
A reporter in the LA Times writes "They need to sell 1 million cars next quarter to make a profit at Ford."
And that Massively article was contradicted the following day. Massively the day before reported doom and gloom.
