What about a box/DL price? I would think it will have this aswell. 

 

So what else is new?  I don't hink you will see another mmorpg launch with out a minmum of two of the three, if not all three. I have no problems with it, for the most part, as long as there are way more items in game than the CS.

 

Now a 40-60 box price can be ifffy though.

ArcheAge Monthly Rumored Prices

3 Hours : 3000 won = 3.00$
30 hours : 9900 won = 9.00$
30 days : 19800 won = 19.00$
90 days: 47600 won = 44.00$

 

 I would think this has to change.

As long as it's not pay to win, it's fine.  I just hope they utilize the shop properly. 

 

GW2 for instance has good store in terms of ease of use, but the items they are selling is very lacking, especially the clothing options. If a company is going to have a shop, they should utilize it more fully.  More appearance options like clothes, hair, armor, etc.  Every day I log in I look and am disappointed.  I finally bought some more inventory space, though I didn't really need it, just wanted it.

Ah well...

Another game I won't ever be playing. It's a shame, really. It looked promising.

For people wondering why the subscription price is slightly higher, it's because p2p games in Korea have no "box" to buy, you just sign up for a subscription.

This model isn't going to work. When will these people learn? it is very strange to see  an already niche title to take road of monthly sub and cash shop. Guess someone is too over confident of their game.

if it's really going to be sub + CS... there's no way in hell I'd buy the game, no matter how good it would be.

Me and my friends are so looking forward to this game. Like I said before I dont care if theres a sub+cash shop, as long as its not pay to win.

 

Cosmetic stuff does not bother me. The game is shaping up pretty nicely from what i see so far. I only hope I dont have to wait too many months to play this!

This model may not be to players in the west liking but be in no doubt that in Asia it will not be an issue. I think many here are forgetting that we in the west wont be seeing AA for at least a year and a half with Russia being the first outside Asia.

 The MMO world does not start and finish in the west, AA will be the biggest MMO in Korea and have a vast following in Asia.

Damn right they are confident of they're game.

Yeah but this is not going to work in west. That is what i am trying to say. When even themepark MMOS can not pull it off i highly doubt a niche sandbox title is going to pull it off in west. So yeah they are way too over confident if they released AA in west with this model. They are going to fall flat on their face.

Oh, the irony.  

I agree.  A lot of people seemed to have hyped this game in their own heads but I doubt this news will deter those super fans.

Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

Life - the one and only MMO. All the rest will FAIL!!!!

That s the main problem of western gamers. You want to put price on everything.

Anyway West will be lucky to get AA in 2014.

Russian got it first and i hope they will put ip block.

Tripple dipping's the best. There is this saying about a fool and money and another one with time... So, watch this game become extremely succesful intially and die a quick death after.

I highly doubt any western publisher/developer has enough strength these days to even think about releasing a subscription based MMO, except of course for Blizzard, but how many companies have the resources, experience and recognition even comparable to that?

Wouldn't really worry about it at this point anyway. First on eastern market cash shops are norm. Second it's long time before AA gets to west, and third, a lot can happen in that time.

Well, now, wait a minute...

Themepark games can't pull it off because they can't keep up with the content or, if you are thinking of some of the latest offers, not enough content and bugs and such.

People will pay for a sub if there is value to be had and people will pay for cosmetic items if they are "neat".
