Now that Comic-Con is over and the big BioWare news has been released, we can now get to the nitty-gritty of things and discuss the most important aspect of any gamer’s life, their wallet.
Like many people, once I heard that the SWTOR pre-order sales went live, I was one of the first to Amazon. Ok, maybe not the first, but definitely up there in the top one million. I was also kind of shocked at myself when I pushed the little button to complete my sale for $150…I’m not sure yet, and only time will tell, I may have had a slight stroke the moment I did it, which of course leads to my question of the day.
How much is too much to pay for a collector’s edition MMORPG?
Past games have capped at roughly $80 (US) and SWTOR is arguably the most expensive of them all. SWTOR hasn’t released yet and history proves that the first few months after going live, there are a numbers of bug fixes and server problems to maintain. Is BioWare risking their customers feeling ripped off?
