but 5$ a month sub model is the thing of the future.
Developers still get a constant sub, but not as intimidating as 15 dollar sub model is.
And with growing number of MMORPG game list, consumers would be better off being able to sub to multiple MMOs rather than commit to a single 15$ a month AAA MMO.
By lowering it down to 5$ a month, consumers can squeeze 3 AAA MMOs out of a single month with that same traditional 15$ a month.
With more MMORPG on the game list, more will be played at a time for the avg MMO consumer in theory. (and even more for those that already comfortable with coughing over 60+$ a month to play multiple MMOs)
keep in mind this is about sub model alternative then doing the risky F2P and B2P models.
