Might play EQN + new secret SWG-type game Sony is working on! In the meantime, ESO is looking good!

Right, the EQ2 community isn't as activist as the Eve community. Partly because Sony probably wouldn't tolerate as much protest as CCP does, and partly because it hasn't registed with EQ2 players that they could be using Twitter and the outside game media to help make a point about virtual goods price gouging. Lots of MMO players are still toddlers in the virtual goods space.

If realworld value doesn't factor into virtual goods pricing, future MMO's might feel encouraged enough to do stuff like create super-expensive "millionaire mounts" for their most wealthy players etc. Who knows what they're thinking behind closed doors. Raising player tolerance for price gouging might be part of the plan.
