Well it seems monthly subscriptions are confirmed. Now we just need to know if they really include everything (except maybe services like character transfers and stuff) or if some things like vanity items will be sold separately.

Yeah, knockin on wood here (move your head a little closer, Schwen Laughing ). Hopefuly if it's anything it will only be vanity items. I can't imagine why they would put an entire store into play when it's P2P.

Found this over on darth hater

Quote :
Electronic Arts CFO Eric Brown's presentation at the UBS 38th Annual Media and Communications Conference reaffirmed CY2011 for Star Wars: The Old Republic. It was also mentioned that SWTOR "...will generate revenue through monthly subscriptions" while speaking on the subscription model. Speaking on availability of options on purchasing, Eric Brown stated that the game's PC client will be available in both a retail packaged format and digital download format.

Eric Brown's presentation lasted about 40 minutes and is now over. As of this moment this appears to be all of the new information relating to The Old Republic that came out of the presentation.

Not that it says anything specific, but I guess it's the most we've gotten about how you'll be able to pay to play.

Yep.It will depend greatly if SWTOR can MAINTAIN a player base like WoW has.The suits at WoW have said they would not rule out an item mall but when youve got 60% of the MMO market they arent too worried about it.

I despise MTs with a passion, lol.

Who knows, I can live with minor novelty items, though I still disagree with them, but the second you can buy a top end weapon or set of armour I am off. When peoples wallets matter more than effort or actually PLAYING the game, the game ends for me, I can afford to buy what ever items, I just refuse to do so, especially if I am already paying them over £120 a year for the privilage.

Greed is beginning to ruin MMO's and I really hope MTs do not impact this game too much. Every time I see a message about it, it makes my skin crawl.

I didn't know I had a twin brother Razz

I agree 100%... it's disgruntling, really, all of it.
