Richard Mitchell of Joystiq on the prices for Star Wars: The Old Republic:
After the free month that comes with the game, plans start at $15 for a single month, $42 for three months or $78 for six months.
I was always curious whether or not another MMORPG1 would be able to charge and get away with it. So many games since World of Warcraft have tried and failed, but if there is any type of game that can do it, it’s a Star Wars game. I have resisted MMORPGs because they are addicting, partially because the monthly fee encourages you to play to “get your money’s worth”. Nothing is going to change for me this time around, but I will admit I am intrigued.
