"The way we look at these things is, 'What's the standard at the time?' Obviously we're not quite done yet. We've got a lot of work left to do. But we'll be very conscious of how the market looks," BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk told Videogaming247 (http://www.vg247.com/2009/04/20/old-republic-pricing-will-depend-on-mmo-standard-says-bioware/) at GDC.

So if they mean "standard," you can probably expect to pay around what the World of WarCraft is charging. Seem like a fair price to pay for you?

yes, I will most likely play over 4 hours a day, which works out at like 12 pence an hour... Which aint bad IMO

depends on succes. If it becomes as big as WoW i think they could afford to lower the prices a bit....
Am i willing to pay it... no... will i... probably....::

So, they're shooting for a $20 monthly fee?

Might as well be flushing $20 down a toilet.

Your toilet can run MMO's too? Cool.

Hmmm... Let's just wait and see if the content and gameplay of the game justifies the price. I'm willing to think about it.

You'll have to explain that conclusion to me because every MMO I've ever played has been free to $15.

I would personally like to pay what I pay for my subscription to Guild Wars...
