Yeah, if only Bioware was selling Collector's Edition spider mounts for a mere REAL $10 like Rift does.

Trion pre-launch: "We won't be doing micros or opening cash shops."Microtransaction months after launch to the rescue!

Trion post-launch: "Come get your spider mount. Only $10. But we promise.. no cash shop later!"

Bioware should do micros too so they can make one million dollars off of 100K people like Trion's subs who will pay their money to ride this:

Yeah, that's the ticket.

Oh no!! You did not just say that.

 

Oh you DID. Better put on your flame suit :)

first of all, no it isnt... second of all... no, it isnt....

great idea. you want access? buy the CE. you arent entitled to anything, stop being so conceited. all they owe you is access to the game for your monthly sub. want more? pay for it.

it is a bonus for fans that show their support for the company and the game by paying an extreme premium. they SHOULD get something special that nobody else can get for 150 freaking dollars.

We want to make sure this is very clear: only Collector’s Edition owners will have access to the Collector’s Edition Store, which is listed officially as one of the benefits of the Collector’s Edition. There will be other ways to obtain access to the VIP lounge on the Fleets (one of which is spending a large amount of credits), but those players will NOT be granted access to the Collector’s Edition Store. We have not changed the offerings in the Collector’s Edition – they remain as they have been listed. We apologize for any confusion there may be regarding the topic, but we have not altered the official offerings in the Collector’s Edition in any way.

Several people have said that digital deluxe players will be able to access the VIP lounge. I have not seen that stated anywhere. Does anyone have a link?

 Well, I can tell you it isn't from the CE vendor, beyond that, I don't know.

Cool and thanks. Let's hope they won't add really amazing end game rides like that in the CE store. While I would understand CE buyers having access to certain gimmicks and appearance thingies,  I'd hate to see amazing level 50 mounts and speeders or other advantages that normal edition buyers can never get their hands on.

A prepaid cash shop is a cash shop just the same and I don't play cash shop games. Period.

If they do add stuff like that to the CE store I might not even buy the game anyway.

I'm going to sit and wait and play some more Skyrim to see what happens to the CE store.

None of the NPC vendors were working in the VIP lounge during beta, so i'm guessing thats one of the two unique speeders you can buy from the NPC out in Outlaw's Den on Tatooine.

it says it in the tool tip for the wristband you can buy

 

http://www.blisteredthumbs.net/2011/12/swtor-vip-lounge-revealed/

kinda hard to make out but you can see it at about 1min into the vid

 

now they dont get access to the ce store just free access to the vip area and any vip vendors up there except the ce one

i see nothing wrong with micros as long as the devs are providing loads of content choices for your sub as well.... which it appears SWTOR is. so far i have seen atleast a dozen mounts. honestly, how many do you really need?

Hehe, I know Pure. He's not serious he's just pulling chains right now.


Go ahead, ask him if he spent the $10 to get Rift's spider mount CE, even though he already purchased a CE at launch. He did. :)

He doesn't think someone paying extra for CE items is all bad or else he would't have done it in Rift. He's just being slightly hypocritical because ToR didn't make it a microtransation but an actual CE.

Just the one that I think is the coolest one .... and through ingame means; i.e. earned by investing time and effort and possibly having a little luck. Not through a prepaid cashshop, thankyouverymuchly.

Actually when it comes to mounts it is never enough.... my left eye starts twitching every time i see a new mount.

How many servers SWTOR will launch with on release?

ShredderSE - Umm how many do they need? Maybe 6.
US, EU, Asian, France, German and Russian.
Subs will be so low there is no need for more
Snoocky-How many servers?
The first 3 months a lot...after that 2 i guess, one for PVE and 1 for PVP...

Thorbrand - SWTOR doesn't have longevity at all. Might be one of the shortest lived MMOs.

I don't expect anything to be on the CE vendor that gives an advantage. They have no reason to do that, it is most likely all purely cosmetic stuff, whether it is a companion skin, an item or a mount, it should just be a look, not a stat.

I have no issue with that since I got CE as gift anyway. Not that I would care if I only have standard editions. It is not game breaking item so it doesnt affect how I play the game. Even if its game breaking, I am not competing with anyone in game. The only goal in game for me is to have fun. So, Bioware can release some uber game breaking item for all I care. As long as I am having fun, who cares what others do/could do.

The VIP area is not exclusive to CE.

1million credits can buy you a membership, from guy near by.

beta or release version?

nice mount, but we all know the mounts they release in future content patches will be much cooler, no reason to rage over CE capitalism by Bioware

The CE vendor is an Ithorian.

So a normal edition player can get an access pass to the VIP area and can buy stuff from vendors there apart from the special CE vendor, is this right?

 

From what I understand they only made the VIP lounge visitable for 1 million credits during the beta. Normal players won't have access after launch.

MMO sandbox games are as exciting as watching paint dry.

So I take it you dont like plus size women. ERR NM you were talking about in game items.

 

I didnt order the CE simply because I spend enough on gaming each year as it is. If TOR was the only game I intended to purchase, then I would of paid the extra.

 

Between new releases, DLC, and grabbing the SW flavored 360 bundle, I will be donating plenty to the hobby this next year.

Asking Devs to make AAA sandbox titles is like trying to get fine dining on a McDonalds dollar menu budget.
