Star Wars The Old Republic Xbox 360 Version

Star Wars The Old Republic Xbox 360 EditionStar Wars The Old Republic Coming To Xbox 360?
Will the star wars the old republic MMO be coming out for the xbox 360 in the near future? Im very interested in this game but I’m not a fan of paying for a game online with a subscription model. So my question is can i get this game for the 360 eventually and if i can will i be able to get around all the game fees that they charge for it? Also they have proven that a game like this will be great with the previous entries in the series.

Best answer:
Well you have a few parts to your question so let me try to answer them all. For starters there is no information on this game being released for the xbox 360. While bioware has released some amazing games over their time line and a majority of them have been released for the 360 nothing has been said about making this game available to people that want it in the 360. They may announce it at a later time but nothing as it stands has been posted yet. Also something that will hold them back for it is xbox live.

Microsoft feels that if someone wants to use their online network they need to join xbox live. However mmo developers want a piece of that pie which Microsoft is not going to give anyone any time soon. So a lot of mmos will not come out on the 360 just because developers think if they have to charge people to play the game it will hurt them. Also there is a rumor that Microsoft wants some of the online subscription fees that are being charged to developers for this game.

As for a subscription price you will always have that no matter where the game goes. Look at final fantasy 11 that game has been released on multiple consoles and all of them charge a monthly fee. The fee is charged to maintain the servers, add new content, and supply the game with updated patches. While they might be charging a high price for monthly they do so because it costs many million of dollars in order to get a mmo released that is quality.

Also you hate paying monthly fees but if you want to play the game on the 360 dont you pay for xbox live which is in either monthly quarterly, or annually (yearly). Its the same thing just they charge it a different way to you.

Well i hope that answers your question on star wars the old republic coming to the xbox 360.
