    Hello World.

    You act like it's your first time out of the basement. You went to a big box retailer... and stuff cost MSRP. Don't be surprised when the sun comes out tomorrow.

    The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

    What!

    Umm what about dec. 21 2012? Or has my attempt at sarcasm also been lost in the void?

    Wal-mart today has it for 14.99 - the price of first month subscription. Best Buy is outdated LOL. They must missed announcement that prices went down to 14.99 in August.

    I saw Star Wars Jump to Light Speed with a cost. . that is right. . the expansion. . 

    I also just saw AoC collectors Edition.

     

    This is nothing new for sure.  I thought about telling a manager and seeing what I could get for a price. . some people will buy them for the "extras".

    At least SWTOR is not free to play yet. . when I bought it I got it for $20.  just before they announced free to play.

     

    I also know where to get a WOW Cata collectors edition if anyone is interested :)

    Wa min God! Se æx on min heafod is!

  • I remember Games selling a game that had already gone F2P or maybe the game had shut down..

    I can´t remember exactly what game it was, I think it was RF online or maybe LOTRO. 

    Well either way,  at least it was together with the other cheap pc games.

    You can probably sell JTL for a profit.

    I recall after Tabula Rasa shutdown, there were still copies on the shelves at the local gamestop.

    lol, mentioning SWG....I saw the original SWG: an empire divided retail box in the shop for 39.95...with a note: "this game requires a subscription to play".....yesterday.

    Luckily I still have my original box from 03 ....I would have bought it just for the memories lolololol.

    Well you conveniently left out the location of the Best Buy.  This franchise would be ripping you off since Best Buy's near me sells it dirt cheap, they even had the Collectors Edition for $20 ..(sold out now)

     

    Here is Best Buy Online:

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Star+Wars%3A+The+Old+Republic+-+Windows/3031171.p;?id=1218373620959&skuId=3031171&st=star%20wars%20old%20republic&lp=1&cp=1

    $14.99

     

    The franchise is ripping you off, or you are pulling our chain :P ... either way it's unclear it the box game is worthless since in the first interview (or one of them), when F2P was described, you would need the box to go 51+.  If there is interest in this, I can dig it up .. but it was months ago and things change .. EA doesn't know what they're doing anyways. They are, for the most part, an incompetant company, imo.

     

    All the people that knew gamers have mostly been fired, or they resigned or outright quit EA / BioWare.  The folks left, and, (especially) the new replacements are more intersted in making the most money for EA with the smallest investment, just like what we've seen in the past 9 months.

     

    Maybe the box counts, or it doesn't.  If someone wants to play now, I'd say $14.99, no more because that is kind of the standard.

    You could probably make a profit from the SWG ones, as it is not a rip off to people who know what to do with them ;)
