Heh, I always buy 4 Snickers Bars every morning from the 7 Elven; it used to cost under 3 bux.Now it costs me almost 5 bucks.
Hey i bought a $2.00 24 oz. bottle of Coke the other day and the machine didn't even have a slot for coins;it just had a slot  for singles...

Yes, prices go up, what you are missing is the value of those items. Has the added cost to the stamp added any value to the mail being sent out? Has the price increase on the Snickers caused them to taste any better? Did that bottle of Coke quench your thirsty more effectively? Chances are, the answer is no. Which is the main reason why I use e-mail now, why I don't eat Candy bars, and when I purchase a soda, I get a fountain drink or the "generic" version of whatever it is I am drinking.

  ...... it will be worth a price hike.
hey i prefer to call it pop and i drink from a bubbler okay? i live in the real world
im not trying to argue with you guys,i was just making a suggestion and hopefully,
IF Funcom decides to charge 19.95 a month
by that time you should be okay with it.
Cause it will be well worth it just like you said.

Please do not quote me out of context like you did, that is very frustrating.

As far as if funcom chooses to charge 19.95 a month, I will not pay it, I can not afford 80 bucks a month on a game. If anything, the market is dropping, for 50 bucks a year I can play all of my xbox live games online. Yes the price will go up, eventually, now is not that time. You have shown your ignorance of economics, fortunately for us, most game companies understand the flow and ebb of the economy and will wait until the economy rises before they raise subscription costs.

I know that a few of my friends switched to LOTRO because with the preorder they could get the monthly sub to just under $10.
I don't think the monthly price will go up any time soon.

Sorry, but if AOC is higher than US $15/month, I'll skip it.

I think your logic is a bit scewed though. More and more Mmorpgs are coming out every year, MMorpg.com is a testiment to that.  In most economic models, including 1 for a MMo,  more competition = lower prices.

I agree that AoC looks fantastic, but so do a few other upcomming games.  Around the time of release of AoC we could have other highly anticipated MMos due out, like Warhammer or Pobts or several others. Imagin what it would do to AoC if they were at $20 and the others were at $15. People would be more apt to try out the less expensive game 1st and AoC would lose the opportunaity to get them hooked 1st.

I also look at demographics.  The 1st demographic to get weeded out with a raise in prices would be the younger demographics. Being an adult, I wouldnt mind this at all. I would love it in fact. But, most companies rely heavily on younger kids, despite whatever the game may be rated. If they didnt depend heavily on kids, they wouldnt always be releasing games just b4 Christmas or just after school gets out, by FAR the 2 most popular times to release games.

When you do something right, no one will have known that you''ve done anything at all.

AOL NWN FTW! Man, that was expensive as hell. Luckily, my dad was such a computer nerd he got a kick out of the idea of his son playing a game online. I was much better than most of my friends, I only spent around $100 a month.

ZOMG! $100 a month? You are teh stupid, foo'!

No, I was young and didn't think of the financial concners, and my father paid for it and didn't care. But yeah, that was a completely different story. No one had any pay-to-play MMORPGs at the time, so AOL set the business model. That and they were charging everyone the same price to get on AOL, not just a special fee for NWN. Imagine if they had thought of that?

Anyway, I fail to see why this kid is "championing" the idea of a price hike. If he were saying that AoC was gonna be halted all together without more money, that's one thing. But just saying, "Hey, let's give them more money because I really like the idea behind this game," sounds more like a rant inspired by the sugar-high of eating too many Snickers.

Competition? Crap vs crap .....the market is over saturated if anything.
Remember guys, it's  still less than a buck a day. And Sinkael im sorry about misquoting you but we want good games,better games,we have to be willing to pay for them.
Let's send that message and be ok with this.

It''s one thing to have a opinion, but enforcing one is unconstitutional.

Cause it will be well worth it just like you said.

either way it goes let the mmo world charge me 19.95 a month. (can you say canceled supscriptions)  thats 239.40 cents i can use on games that dont have a subscription fee. Internet 50dollars then this 20 dollars 70 dollars a month to play this game HA it will never see my 50dollars when it comes availible. Im still angry that they changed EQ, AC from 9.95 to 12.95 then to 14.95.. There gettin ridiculous with these games charging so much money to maintain somthing that doesnt cost a 1/4 of what we pay. Each mmo good or bad has a base close to 20k players. And that at 14.95 is equal to 299,000 then that times a 12months is 3.588 million. You can not tell me it costs that much money to maintain servers and the few personal u keep on board and thats if the game only has 20k players. WoW has 8million so they make BILLIONS each year now. So i say F a dang monthly fee increase it needs to be decreased. So you stay eating your snickers and leave everyone else out of your fantasy to pay more

After re-reading the original posters comments, I have come to the conclusion that he is a troll and is trying to stir up some trouble and flames. He has played all the proper cards and failed to get the response he desired, he has failed as a troll.

I reluctantly have to agree with the OP on this one.
Reluctantly because I also would not pay more than $15/month to play an online game.
But the truth is they have stated they are targeting this game to an mature (adult) population.
In addition to the sexuality and violence, blood, etc.
Therefore, mature may mean higher monthly fees too.

19.95 is frickin rediculous!  I don't care what the game is, that's too much.  I'm gonna laugh my ass off when people start playing AoC paying 20 bucks and then realizing that it sucks.  I'm not saying it will suck, but all these other "awesome" MMO's that came out, ended up sucking.

So...if AoC really will be 20 bucks a month, count me out.  There are other just as good games coming out, that will be cheaper.

A premium game.
Age of Conan will be the Lexus,BMW, the Cadilac of mmorpgs.All other mmorpgs will have to bow down and future mmorpgs will only hope to obtain the same quality.
A premium game with a premium subscription.

Yes ,someone here really gets it. i am glad.
A mature game for mature players would only naturally cost a tiny bit more per month.

if you can't afford a Premium/Mature game....like has been mentioned already -
there's plenty of crappy games that cost less per month and/or are free.

Guys don't you see i am suggesting this for OUR own good .
It will help us in the long run,just go with the flow guys,this is a good idea.


This is for our own good.... it's a good idea.... right.  Go ahead and stop looking out for us. 

This guy's the Jim Jones of MMOs apparently.

So rendering tits or some red blood equates to 5 more dollars a month? That's not mature

You missed the point. The developers themselves are building this game with adults in mind.
It's only natural that a targeted adult audience will have more funds in the bank = higher monthly fees
Put yourself in the developers or publishers shoes.

The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them.

Where are your facts that it will retail for this much per month?

Link pLz

Otherwise stop blantantly shit stirring.

 

Just to avoid any unnecessary confusion...from the FAQ on the Offical Website

1.6 Will we have to pay a subscription fee to play?
Yes, there will be a monthly subscription fee. The price is yet to be determined, but will most likely follow the norm of the genre. The first 30 days of gameplay will be included when you purchase the retail box.

 

Also most people believe that this game's subscription will be $14.95USD per month with the first month free.

$19 a month is not consistant with the same prices of the majority of other online mmorpg's :)

Mature adults usually have bills to pay.. car payments, house loans, health insurance policies, life insurance policies, taxes, possibly even kids. I don't think that they really just want to throw away so much money on a game because it has tits and blood, those small additions are basically only visual changes to the exact same experience.. once you've seen it once it becomes old hat.

This isn't every other mmorpg.
This is Age of Conan.

True.
I'm not supporting the $19.95 a month notion, I'm just saying it's a possibility.
Anyway we will find out for sure in the coming months.
