At the price for the virtual goods here I can go to the next store and buy myself a new shirt and trousers FOR REAL. Not overly good ones, but hey, have you checked how the items in the Not-Exploiting-Our-Customers-At-All store look?


And they've still got tons of fun graphical bugs to work out. My favorite is the "OH MY GOD MY ARM IS GOING THROUGH MY STOMACH" one when I'm sitting. Apparently, they didn't think ANYONE would want to create a character that didn't have 6-pack abs.

I mean who is gonna buy a vanity item for 12.000 Aurum - 4 plex - 80$ dollars in real life money ?

Seriously... How bad is CCP for money ? This NEX prices are ridiculous...




Point is .. its clever move from CCP .. now all the whining threads about insane prices... will actually prove that people wants it.

Hardly. It is the shock and hilarity experienced at the RL currency cost of those items which makes the AUR market a theater of the absurd.

Furthermore, one of the signature elements of the Incarna "expansion" turns out to be this crazy clothing and accessories market with extremely expensive items and little value added to the game.

You're a ****ing moron that doesn't realize PLEX has IRL monetary value and can be converted back and forth. Go **** yourself.

I would like the join the choir of folks that these Aurum prices are ridiculous, beyond ridiculous really. I suppose its okay though as it means I don't have to waste money on buying new outfits.....what another nice feature that'll never be used....

Ok, let me see if I can follow the thought process here...

Pre-Incarna:

Players: Clothing is ******ed.. nobody will ever buy it, nobody wants it.. eff you CCP.

Incarna:

Players: OMFG this clothing is too expensive and too elitist. I wouldn't ever buy it.. but if I wanted to, which I don't.. really.. I want it to be affordable.. so I can show everybody how much better I am than they are inexpensively. But I don't want it.. but I'm upset that I can't afford it.

Post-Incarna:

Players: WTF CCP... the world is being overpopulated because you cured cancer. This is bull. I'm going to unsub my 47 accounts until you take your cancer cure off the market.

That's not the issue. The issue is laughing at CCP thinking this was a good idea, would be warmly received by the player-base and would generate meaningful revenue.

Oh and that it's your 15$ a month funding them adding it.

I don't mind the existence of vanity items. I'd even likely buy some, at some point. Once we've got big common areas in the station and things to do there that are actually worth doing, yeah, I'll let you guys ding me for a pair of good-looking boots. I love the hell out of this game, I think that common areas in the major stations will add to the social aspect of the experience, and I'm willing to pay a little premium to look good while I do it.

But those prices are off by about an order of magnitude. Knock a zero off of all those and we've maybe got a deal one of these days.

I don't believe I need to lecture CCP on economics, since they have at least one economist on their staff. But maybe this will be educational for some other people in the forum: You will actually make *less* money charging 1.0 plex for a vanity widget (such as a jacket) than you would charging 0.1 for the same widget, because less than 1/10th of the number of people who would pay 0.1 will pay 1.0.

You are pricing yourself out of a market that you have a monopoly on. Think on that.

No. It only proves that people understand how and why microtransactions work and that they're surprise and dismayed that CCP don't know this…

This whole expansion was about the roll out of "walking in stations", something a lot of people have been waiting for years to do. A seemingly large part of this expansion is vanity items which cost more than real-life clothes.

The people who didn't care about walking in stations are ****ed off that this expansion has absolutely nothing to offer them. Oh wait, we have turrets that go in and out now.

But yeah CCP, way to much ****ing money.

So, if a friend starts smashing his head against a wall, and I tell him that's ******ed, I am proving I want to bash my head against a wall?

That is some wonderful logic you got there.

What's going to be great about this too is that we won't actually be able to show off these "premium" goods to others until more of Incarna gets released.

Hmm..let's see. 1.6 billion isk for a monocle or a carrier/dreadnought. That's a really tough decision.

well two different things are .. two different things.

Forums are allways full of whiners whining about everything, anytime.

How come the females boots are 2400 aur and the mens are 1000 aur.

When I first loaded up the NEX, I saw the boots and liked them and was willing to get them. Then I checked to see how much aur 1 plex was and my mouth just dropped open as I starred at the screen making sure I was reading it all correctly.

I have a half dozen plex's sitting around and was more then willing to use one if I saw some neat stuff at fair prices. I looked at the items offered and found them all almost to be pretty ugly, expect the female boots I wanted. Then I saw the price and found out the plex/aur ratio and couldn't believe it.

I'm more then willing to buy stuff, but it needs to be fairly price.

Oh, and last thing to top it off, you go to sell us this overpriced stuff yet we can't even see it on our own character to make sure that it looks good, that is freaking lazy.

Lets be honest.. you'll get more use out of a monocle than a dreadnought.

I have it on a good source that the Ishukone Watch Scorpion is gonna be the reasonable reasonable price of 200 PLEX.

NO, the final prices of this stuff was NOT discussed with the CSM. When we asked, they were "still researching that" and "no final decisions" had been made. Razz


Like anyone believes anything the CSM says. You guys have been bought and paid for already.
