I posted this in a TESO thread but was curios to what others thought in the general area
you know, someone needs to come up with a new sub model.
History lessons of MMORPGS show that games once started as pay by the HOUR. I believe Shadows of Yserbius was something like $3 an hour, which would be ridiculous now, but back then we also used to run from store to store getting aol.com hours.
A Subscription model following something like this would be great
$4.99- 50 hrs monthly (12 hrs a week approx) intended for the casual, fulltime student/worker/family person
$9.99- 120 hrs monthly (30 hrs a week approx) for some with a little more time on their hands, you get more then double the previous scale
14.99- Unlimited hours.
seems like this would be a pretty popular idea imo. Every subscriber is automatically charged 4.99 a month, and when you hit 48 hrs it notifies you you're monthly time is about to run out, click yes to automatically goto the next level, hit 120 hrs bam same thing
Its a win for gaming companies, cause I would keep a 4.99 sub to 3 different games if this was an option and I wouldnt feel like I have to log in
