What, you expect a current dev to tell you anything other than the company line?

Estimates... Guesstimates...they are both the same...is there a "official" source from Bioware or EA?

Anyway, I really enjoyed some of the reviews. Very well written and honest. I like it when editors add their pros and cons. It gives the reader a better outlook on the game.
Nothing to see here....move along...

I'll trust the devs as much as I trust EA.

I trust the news reporter to have unnamed sources that will tell them the truth instead of the company line. It's a pretty common practice and good reporters usually have multiple sources verifying information.

The only rating that matters is the one you give it.

6/10. Having a combat log and UI customization would have made it a 7 easy.

EA/Bioware won't tell anyone how much they spent. That would make investors nervous.

So basically they just spent 300M on KTOR3 online a single player MMO at least call it what it is. This game is super MMO lite.
