Aggro Me: Bad Price Point
Bad Price Point
I was actually going to give them my hard earned dollars.
I was going to ignore the pre-EQI graphics and the miasma of outright despair surrounding the forums (worth browsing for entertainment value).
I was going to pretend I never saw "glowing" commentary like this (worth clicking).
I even, somehow, managed to con someone else into possibly trying it too.
Yes, I was going to play Dark & Light.
I figured it had to be good for a laugh and there would be fun to be had amongst the ruins and mayhem. I wanted to be a part of what might be one of the worst MMO's ever released.
But $54.99 to download? Um, no thanks. That's just bordering on offensive.
Sure, there's a choice between a $14.99 a month subscription and some kind of free plan involving credits ($14.99 for 15 credits). But that initial $54.99 is asking a lot.
We all know this game is going to be free or a lot less expensive down the road. There's no way it's going to survive at $54.99. From every impression I can get it would have a hard time surviving if they paid you to play. So why punish the early adopters when you're trying to build a population? Go with a low price now, get some subscribers and hopefully improve your game.
I'm not paying $54.99 to play Dark and Light, even though I really really want to. Must resist overpaying for comedy gaming...must resist...
