CCP are doing something right here and actually talking about the charge early. So, it will not be some massive, negative surprise.

Whether charging like this will wash with console gamers is another question. I guess console gamers pay for subs like xBox live so it's conceivable they will go for some form of MT too.

I believe CCP should combine the initial credits with the game. Just take the hit and give them out for 'free' instead of making gamers take that initial hit. I think it might put more people off in the first instance than attract them. After they start playing they will be more likely to buy more than being put off by being forced to buy.

Actually several of my friends have ps3 over xbox precisely because PSN is free.

Lets not beat around the bush here shall we? Name me a LEGIT AAA grade shooter using a 10 year old engine. Please. And spare me the Gears of War crap, anyone who has played that POS knows exactly it is neither a AAA game nor good.
By that token, there are no AAA grade shooters, so the age of the engine doesn't really matter, now does it? Oh, and if you want to consider UE3 10 years old, then pretty much all shooters user 10-year-old engines, so in that case, the grade doesn't really matter…

wow didnt realize it had the 90s cartoony jumping gun effect and flat look with no depth.
its feels very dated for being a shooter and thats not good for a game not even launched yet.

fps is not eve.
fps is fashion *****s of games if eyecandy dont work game is dead fast.

They use the same newspeak to say you get the Eve client for free then have to pay an extra $5 to "activate" it (although you can use gtc/plex to get around it).
