With so many people saying item like HK and such will be in the cash shop for people to buy and such- that is a ingame advantage item and as soon as bioware go down that path- then this games is not Free to Play but Pay to win model which is a complete scam!
I wont be playing this game if that's the case!
Huh?

Your post is bad and you should feel bad.

First HK will NOT be in the cash shop, now it might require the to be subbed to the game to get the quest to unlock him, but they do plan to make it VERY hard to get HK, you can see posts of them stressing this almost every post they make that talks about HK.
Want to post feed back of why you're quitting? For the love of all that is good, post here http://www.swtor.com/community/forumdisplay.php?f=349

Unless HK turns out to not be one of the 5 existing companion archetypes, and is far more effective than other companions of whatever archetype he is ($100 says he's a ranged DPS), then this is exactly the kind of thing you can expect to pay for in the cash shop.

You know what else you can expect to pay for in the cash shop? New story content, since story doesn't make your character any more powerful than anybody else.

The thing that makes the game unique is what they ought to and probably will be monetizing. You want the new storyline? You pay for it.

People are just making stuff up. There is nothing to say that you can buy HK-51 itself only in the shop, its more probable that non-subscribers will have to buy the story line that lets them get HK-51 while subscribers will get that story line free.
