[Editorial] The Secret World: Musing on Funcom
News & Features Discussion « General Discussion

I played in the last weekend of The Secret World beta, and I have to say that while I enjoyed the game, I wasn't really blown away by it. At least, not enough to justify spending $50+ to buy the game AND $15/month on a subscription.
I hate to say it, but the days of buy and subscribe are coming to an end. RIFT may be hanging in there, but the list of successful titles using that business model are getting smaller and smaller. Factor in that WoW can now be picked up, with expansions, for only $20 (limited time, sure, but it's still there), and I really can't see anyone paying that much money for TSW.
I really feel like this is a free-to-play game, and I don't see myself ever paying to play it. And I suspect I'm not alone in feeling that way.
