There was an infamous twitter leak - where it was posted $200 million but quickly got removed - however as most things on twitter it got read and screenshot by lots of people.

http://camelotpost.com/2014/01/02/the-elder-scrolls-online-budget-200-million-do-more-damage-than-good/

Also with 6 month console delay - the new rumor is that the final dev cost will exceed 250 million.

 

So that article is literally 'there are rumors that it's 200m' and it's substantiated by 'more rumors'.

No offense, I don't like ESO, but I don't think they spent 200million on it, they even said it wasn't 'close to 200 million' before when teased.

Also, your article was posted Jan 2. 

Interestingly enough on Jan 1st this article was published.  http://www.p4rgaming.com/zenimax-debunks-elder-scrolls-online-200m-budget-rumor-we-couldnt-have-wasted-that-much-money/

Did you just really post a P4Rgaming link?

LOL - did you even READ that ????

Priceless!

(hint - P4Rgaming is a SATIRE site)

 

The twitter leak was real - it cost over 200mil - ZOS damage control failed.

Yeah, I know it's satire, the link they used was real, exactly.

Matt DID say that there was no way that they spent 200m ON TWITTER.

 /facepalm

Edit:  My point is there is NO NUMBERS!  EITHER WAY!  You are literally linking a rumor based off a rumor based off what some guy over heard his room mate say while on video chat with his nephew who knows a guy at ZoS.  I.E. Bullshit.

My point in linking the first article was to point out to you that both of them, are equally stupid.  /sigh

The twitter message was not posted by a ZOS employee iirc but a game journalist (form Kotaku).  Which was then picked up by even more and spread like wildfire without any evidence given (possibly why it was removed).

ZOS never released any information on it's budget, over than it's not $200 million (implied less, though not stated).

9 Bucks for a new released mmo in less than 3 months is bad news for this game. It doesn't matter what fanboys say. This is not a good thing and Zenimax most be going to say something soon about the game. Some shake up must be coming and they are waiting to get as much money as they can first. I have never seen a price drop this fast for any mmo. If you can get it for 9 bucks somewhere than its pretty much over for making huge money on this game. And didn't they do some huge layoffs at the mmo branch of the company too? Not looking to good i think.

The earlier you get into a game, the more you pay for it.  With subscription games especially, the box price tends to drop or even go away entirely after a while just to get people into the game so they can start paying the subscription fee.

Most stores like Walmart are allowed to set their own price, so I would not be surprised if you found a copy for 2$ if they wanted to get rid of old stock. In gaming 'old stock' means last months release.

 

Let's be fair and compare it to an 11 year old P2P Fantasy MMO with only 500k subscribers.

Final Fantasy XI still sells for $30 on amazon.

they should have launched as a Buy 2 Play game with a cash shop instead of a Pay To Play game with a cash shop. 

 

who knows maybe it will be a huge success on console.

Final Fantasy XI is actually an example of what happens to a lot of products as they become "scare" - namely the price goes up somewhat as the product nears the end of its life cycle. You want some old RAM for example - good look finding any of that cheap.

The price drop is actually a great idea...This is what I was waiting for with ESO...didnt think it deserved 60 bucks, but when dropped ot 30.00 and even 10.00 in select Wal-Marts, I was more than excited to get it.  It's a really good game, just not great.

P.S. - Wildstar sucks

FFXI is not scarce or rare. It's the newest edition with all expansions. It's also not near the end of its life-cycle it just released a new expansion and is going strong on subscribers.

It's one of the longest running successful MMOS.

rumors come and go, but a reliable source has pointed at this game going f2p 2-3 months before console launch, and will launch on consoles as an f2p game.

 Crusades, can you stick to WS which clearly you are a fanboy of having checked your previous posts:

"(Wildstar) The game is actually a beautifully orchestrated masterpiece of an mmorpg. It's going to go down as one of the greatest in history."

In your signature you mount a diatribe against ESO and clearly want it to fail so WS does well, if the games that good, why are you posting on the ESO forums and not playing WS?

You cannot compare any old MMO with a new one in the area of price. SWTOR, RIft, TSW (was it P2P?); they are the only comparable MMOS I can think of. TESO is 30$ on Amazon atm.

Also still no proof of all these 10$ copies from Walmart that are supposedly on sale when the game is ~40$ on Walmart online.

I should have been more explicit. The retail box copy - and this thread is about retail boxes - of FFXI is no longer being made. A mixed bag of retailers still sell it at a mixed bag of prices. "High" prices in several cases. What you can buy at amazon .com for $29.99 is the digital download.

We can expect the same to happen for TESO. Currently the price has dropped because retailers have more stock than they want. They make no profit on unsold stock; infact it costs them money: insurance, warehouse space, making sure it doesn't get damp, staff etc. So they reduce the price, pulp it, sell it on to TKMaxx - whatever - clearing space for the next "big thing".

When the retail box copies of TESO are "mostly sold or pulped" the retail box copies will become harder to find and the prices will probably go up. Just like FFXI. You will still be able to buy the digital download however - currently $59.99.

You cannot compare any old MMO with a new one in the area of price. SWTOR, RIft, TSW (was it P2P?); they are the only comparable MMOS I can think of. TESO is 30$ on Amazon atm.

Also still no proof of all these 10$ copies from Walmart that are supposedly on sale when the game is ~40$ on Walmart online.

More than likely they are just selling old stock that they need moving, its kind of telling that Amazon UK is selling the game for £20 now, which is well below the original price, even Wildstar is selling for £27, but i think one of the most telling features is that Amazon UK is not offering customers the option of buying the digital download version. Of course the other problem is that even at the reduced price, the game doesn't seem to be shifting any boxes, maybe Amazon will eventually do the Walmart thing and reduce the price yet again, their only other option is probably going to be to get their money back from Zenimax for unsold boxes.

Unlike a B2P where you can keep the box price high a P2P will drop of quickly. If someone wants to present evidence that TESO is dropping of faster or slower than average then fine. If not I think it is fare to say its dropping at an average rate.

Most stores like Walmart are allowed to set their own price, so I would not be surprised if you found a copy for 2$ if they wanted to get rid of old stock. In gaming 'old stock' means last months release.

 

Let's be fair and compare it to an 11 year old P2P Fantasy MMO with only 500k subscribers.

Final Fantasy XI still sells for $30 on amazon.

TESO is like that half dead mouse your cat drops on your doorstep because it got tired playing with it.

Final Fantasy XI is actually an example of what happens to a lot of products as they become "scare" - namely the price goes up somewhat as the product nears the end of its life cycle. You want some old RAM for example - good look finding any of that cheap.

FFXI is not scarce or rare. It's the newest edition with all expansions. It's also not near the end of its life-cycle it just released a new expansion and is going strong on subscribers.

Wildstar is now only £24.55 on Amazon in fact, OMG the price is falling, the game must be crap! In the four hours since Phry posted it dropped £2.05. Obviously I have no proof there was a price drop, but you don't need proof to post anything on here!

Will we do that sort of post on the WS forums? I should hope not, but they deserve some of the same nonsense we are getting.

Wanting to shift stock is always going to make the price go down, when are our gaming pundits going to realise this? Well they think of themselves as pundits anyway. :)

The reason for the price drop is the same reason for the lawsuits, for double charging customers for their second month & not giving it to them, for locking the horse and imperial race behind a paywall, launching the game when it should still be in beta, etc. They are desperate to make back the money they have invested in this game. Millions were invested in this game because it was a rather safe investment with all the TES fans out there, they figured it would be easy to make their money back. Unfortunately though they decided to make DAoC2 with TES lore, instead of a TES game, and many TES fans either beta tested the game, or knew someone who did. The TES fans weren't fooled into buying this garbage as easily as the investors had hoped, so now they're pulling out all the stops to make their money back on this game before they decide to pull the plug.

I actually pity anyone who bought this game thinking they would get a TES game. You've been had.
