SWTOR beta signup and microtransactions
Two short bits of news about Star Wars: The Old Republic: You can now sign up for the beta. And if you read the fine print of the Terms of Service of the beta application, it appears as if SWTOR will have microtransactions as part of its business model. Which I find somewhat curious, as I'm pretty certain that SWTOR will also have a monthly fee. Instead of monthly fee games on one side and Free2Play with microtransactions on the other side, we get double dipping. Now that should be profitable for EA!
