Well, here we are again folks with another story on the buisness of online gaming as given to us by CCP. After the EvE cash shop we now have details on Dust 514 game price sturucture. Initially the PSN download will be free, but there will then be a $10-20 buy-in.
"In the beginning you have to pre-buy credits, so you pay something like $10-$20 to enter the game and you get the equivalent number of credits in the game once you do that. We call this the 'cover charge'," CCP's CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson explained toGamesIndustry.biz.
There is talk of free-2-play at some point after that which makes me think that an online cash shop may become a major factor for the game too.
The game will still tie into EvE itself (Golden goose) and vice versa.
Coming to y'all early 2012...
