Micro transactions is not: Shell over only 15$$$ for this ingame item.
Micro transactions are:
Oh, look: 1$ for a new farm, 10c for a weapon upgrade. dumdidum,

[00:04:15] CCP Zinfandel > Hello Kyle - we have been talking about the prices regularly in here. There are expensive items in the shop. Noble Appliances Corporation opened these shops particularly to target the wealthy capsuleer community.


So yeah, there we go.

What an asinine, dumbass, ignorant way to justify your outrages prices. You're telling me some fake item is worth 45 euros because of some bull**** roleplay reason?

5+ years of complete and utter BS to have you show how shortsighted and truly greedy people at the top can debase and ruin any company. I've been with you since beta, and I can honestly say I wont mind as this crap burns down around you.

Getting in on this just to call CCP and whoever worked on the Store plain greedy and just totally utterly ****ing stupid. Buy a shirt for my ken in space doll, or use that plex to buy a battleship and a couple battlecruisers?

I eagerly await the back peddling from CCP over this downright horrible expansion. I thought doing stagged releases was suppose to help you all figure this **** out before hand. Obviously its not working or you seriously just don't care.

edit: But hey its not like we didn't try to warn you about this months ago. Way to listen to your player base.

Seems to me like someone in CCP put an extra 0 at the end of each price...

This is hilarious. CCP has been ****ing away customer goodwill like nothing I've ever seen before this past month. First the hubbub about the $99 "commercial" application dev fee ("commercial" as in "you can't actually charge money for your application", Rolling Eyes), and now - after barely agreeing to only sell vanity items - they charge so hilariously high prices for them you could actually buy a computer capable of playing EVE for less than a couple full outfits. Hell, I'm sure you could find something for the price of a goddamned monocle. Great job, CCP!

Did your agreement with Sony require you to sink to their depths after the hacking fiasco, so they wouldn't feel so alone? Because everyone apart from the guys in the programming department seem to be off their rocker, management most of all.

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




First people cry there will be a store. Now they cry about prices...Sell your plex if you do not want vanity stuff. I think this is all hilarious.

even if CCP lower the prices they have already proved us how greedy and disconnected from the playerbase they have become

You'd think people would be more positive about the pricing; at this rate, microtransactions will be a short-lived experiment.

One can only wonder how much they were going to change for the Ishukone Watch Scorpion Shocked

if it's 12000 for the monocle think about how much it will be when they release the long coat that are on sisi.

Yeah, considering that clothing costs more than real-life physical objects, and far more than internet spaceships. This is almost as bad as the damage control in the last few dev blogs. Come on guys, stop failing us.

It's a bit offensive, we don't all come from rich countries and seing these prices for virtual goods is shocking, how many people will waste money others could spend hours earning ? I now understand the "noble exchange" name but in my country we killed all the nobles 2 centuries ago, hope it will be this way in eve too :D

bump :( The dev blog should have been titled "Give me $15 to $45 for 1 piece of clothing or give me bankruptcy."

Its a shame that they didn't set expectations for pricing. The clothing prices are shocking, and shameful.

Incarna = pet project to test new engine for future games and to get funding from nVidia. Engine that is extremely inefficient and doesn't work on a larger scale with the technology available today.

If Incarna was meant for EVE we could walk in stations today and talk to hundreds of people face to face.

But I guess having realistic and physically correct hair and cloth movement is more important, right CCP?

Hey i never cried about the store. In fact i approve the store 100% but the prices are really out of "mmo standard" as they are atm, just go and see Champions Online or Star Tre Online C-store, the prices are well done for micro transactions as for clothes and so on.
