EverQuest PS2 out next month in US
And Sony wants $10 a month
Sony will ship the US version of EverQuest Online Adventures (or EQOA if you like) for PlayStation 2 in February, the publisher's online entertainment division has announced. And as expected, players will have to cough up a monthly subscription fee in order to tour the virtual lands, known as Tunaria. However, we hadn't expected it to be $9.99. Sony will reportedly develop a variety of payment options to accommodate demand.
So, um, are we the only ones who can't see $9.99 per month working in the long run? That's $120 per year for one game, plus the cost of the network adapter - how is that going to attract a new breed of EverQuest player?
