May I just point out that you guys should really read the fine print in all this
Cryptic just gave us a possible release date for this game.
And from what I am looking at its a August 2009 release!
What's a little depressing is that if they DO do a lifetime subscription for buyers that want to buy one...it's looking like they're implying that it'll be $500, which is way too much for me at least, (Assuming $50 for the game)
TOTAL estimated Value... thats 5 Lifetime Subscriptions! totaling $550! not just 1 Sub.
as i expected with a few other MMO's it's about $80-$100 for a lifetime sub. i would suspect though that the game will cost about $29.99-$39.99 MMO's rarely sell above 39.99 unlike standard games which go $49.99-$69.99.
