I haven't played an ES before and unfortunately I had watched the ESO trailer before I found out they were going to charge for it. I love my games as much as the next guy but like I have said, if they want to charge me a monthly fee then they better give
me the game for free lol.
Vote brings up a really good point. Consoles haven't really seen much of the MMO scene. How will users react to having to share the universe. Personally I've played very little of MMORPGs on PC. I sometimes find them overwhelming. Like there are so many
people and so much to do that I don't know what to tackle first.
Phantasy Star Universe is probably the closest thing to an MMO the Xbox (360) in this case has seen prior to ESO. That had a required guardian license (subscription) of if I remember $10/mo and lasted about 4 years if I remember correctly. With the following
this franchise has and the increased player base xbox live has now I can see it doing well. They also did proximity voice chat so you could hear other players you were near but not all of them in the area you were in. Party chat works best when grouped with
others you want to chat with.
I never got round to playing PSU. PSO I loved back on the D'Cast and I would bite someones hand off if I thought if it got ported over as a free to play/w microtransactions but that's just wishful thinking. I have 'just' posted this in another thread but
the whole MMO genre seems to have some sort of paywall in one form or another. I hope they shy away from it soon and follow the path of happy wars / Ascend.
