Sure as hell it would cost MORE than fifty dollars (or 25 dollars).


Long story short: YES, it's expensive but NO, it's not "overpriced".
You leave out some important data, such as?
Record number of sales when the game launched.

Record number of conversions into LTS within 30 days/

And the simple fact, this game was a sub based model for almost 2 years.

Bottom line is the IP has been handled poorly, and would be thriving if Cryptic actually did what they claim in every interview, "Listen to the Playerbase", not reacting to uproars after they ignore the playerbase.


Just my 2cents
