    I think many Americans would have no problem paying $110 for a standard game if they made nearly $24 per hour. This is where some people, (not really talking about you but more so post #2) need a little bit better of an understanding of economics before they criticize entire countries. When one county's currency is inflated higher than anothers, things will cost more.

    Fuck you and your bigotry. Mad at the world because a digo ate your baby, or perhaps you ran out of shrimp to throw on the barbie. Asshole.

    Ever think it wasn't written to be applied on a global level? You can't equate just one price of an item in two completely different economies, as there are so many other factors not accounted for.

    hmmm well it says 50 dollars to play online per year right? so the single player games like skyrim will be remaining at 60 then? if im correct so far, i guess a lot of MP will have to be avoided for myself. personally, even the PC mmo subscriptions are a lot, but paying 50 a year to probably play a sub par game, with sub par MP, id have to pass. on another note, like some1 posted earlier, if this does go through, i can see other developers taking advantage of claiming no subscription fee to play their game to increase sales.

    see this just proves how stupid some of you can be, you do know that both of the things you said is false and no1 does that, because i said fuck america you jump to its defence so quickly and say whatever you can think of to try and insult that person but you fail to realize you actually know NOTHING about me or my country so it makes you look like an even bigger idiot.

    To clarily to every1 else, I get annoyed at certain stupid americans and how they talk/what they say. this article might try and be for 'everone' but its clearly only for americans by how they write it, even the title picture is american money and how he says games are $60

    think about it he does not really care about any of the other countries and only america because he dnt live in any other country so its fair i guess but he should be more considerate for other people

    I think all everyone needs to chill out Americans can be pompous its called patriotism Auzzies can be rude its called being an Australian every country has their good & bad points the person who said about the dingo & the baby they were lying assholes who killed their own kid & Prawns are best served on ice we throw steak & sausages on the BBQ I have lived in both America & Australia so I speak from experience when I say even though things are cheaper in America in Australia $$$$ lasts longer there might not be much of a difference in our dollar but the difference in a weekly pay as I explained in a post^ is a big difference but still dont turn this thread into hate thread we live where we live & have to pay the prices we pay so live with it cause its the companies who are laughing not the consumer

    I'm actually fairly well educated on Australia, and I find it to be a beautiful country (at least where I visited). Perhaps you didn't realize I relayed a baseless stereotype as inane as your anti-American views.

    Articles are generally always written for people with a common relation to the writer, usually their location. This writer gearing his article for Americans is no different than any of your local news channels reporting stories as they pertain to your community and/or just Australia as a whole.

    Judging by your style of typing with the shortcuts and lack of capitalization, I'm going to assume you are probably a kid, so I should just pass it off as you not knowing any better. I hope you realize as you grow up that you shouldn't judge a nation of peoples based on a select few.

    Ignoring the completely unjustified patriotism on all sides (or lack thereof), the day console games try adding subscription requirements to online is the day I stop buying games with any form of online, period. I don't care about your shitty game mode that took development time away from the campaign/story, which is what I'm paying to enjoy. If I wanted to go online and kill other idiots, I'd buy a game intended for that, like CoD or BF. I would not buy Dragon Age, Mass Effect or Assassin's Creed for that purpose.

    Then stop buying games with online already, for CoD already did it.

    I would never pay a yearly fee to play a game. Point blank period. Online passes make sense to me but this seems to take things a step to far. It'll end badly for the companies i imagine and gamers will move onto other games. Perhaps this (if enacted) will kick start the move to the next genre and get away from all the games geared toward FPS.

    As far as the AUS/America fighting. Its stupid.

    Ok so in AUS there 110 already, imagine them being 160 now. Bam there now everyone get mad at the same thing.

    I remember when games were about $40 or $50. I know that other countries pay around 100+ dollars for their games and it really must suck so much, but if I ever have to pay $110 for a standard version of a game in my lifetime, I will seriously flip some MAJOR dick.

    Ok,the title is quite misleading. For future readers, this article is about games that require you to pay the price for the game and then a subscription to actually play it. So NA pricing, that's a $60 base and then a $50 subscription fee totaling $110.

    Now, I don't think this will work at all. Having to pay a sub fee just to play a game is not cool. I'm sure if the game companies tried to do that, they would report massive losses. It's just common sense.

    Yeah, you’re going to miss getting shot in the face by an 8 year old in Modern Warfare 17, “Return to Gettysburg” but you’re also going to be telling these greedy, money mongering publishers which end of the stick they can suck on.

    This is gonna end badly for all games that aren't Call of Duty. I don't think many other game franchises have the support of the consumers to make this subscription fee thing profitable.
