$160 a year!?

I'm going back to do my masters next year so at that price I basically have to commit to this being the ONLY game I buy the whole year.... and then the next year...

I'm sure it's going to be awesome but I don't want to only play ONE game for the for the next couple of years. I think I'll pass :p

Damn that's going to be an expensive bill, but I'll still pay it. It's friggin' Eldar Scrolls....

It don't care how much the subscription is.. It could have been $20 a year.. I'm not paying a subscription to play a game.

Too pricy, I mean sure there will be many more features and a bit more moderation but still, too pricey.

Hi I like your post a lot. I used to pay for EVE for a while then just gave up on pay2play for the sake of saving myself money.

I sure hope that the monthly subscription idea fails and Bethesda is forced to rethink their strategy here. I refuse to pay for online access to a game (especially $160 a year).

$160 is really quite an absurd figure in my opinion. Anyone willing to pay for that is either an addict or they're rich.

There are a lot of much better things I could do with $160 (not to mention that's a yearly fee and you'd have to buy the game on top of that)

This is a terrible idea. How much is this subscription in comparison to World of Warcraft?

World of Warcraft is $155 per year if you buy 6 months (maximum) at a time.

Hey, just realized that's why I don't play WoW either! :lol:

These companies have to realize that these subscription based games really turn off a lot of gamers. They're making a lot of money with it, sure, but I think they're really missing what gaming is all about. It's ok to make money (even a lot of it), but they should have some respect for some of the other gamers out there that can't afford to pay a ridiculous $160 per year.

For the Horde!
Even with WoW being succesful sub-based game reaching 12mill in like..08? It's slowly losing numbers now being at 7 million players. TESO has no chance of getting through this.
