It is listed at being $39.99 NEW.

So my statement that the latest Expansion of WoW costs $40 is true, and the "+" that I said next to it is because of the Collector's Edition

http://www.gamestop.com/pc/games/wor...edition/103752

Which is listed at $79.99

So regardless, $10/$20 for TOR's 1st Expansion is a LOT less then that of WoW's latest Expansion. Given it could be because TOR's is Digital while WoW's had a Store Copy that one could buy from an actual Store, it is still a lot less.

Good god, honestly.
It's $20 NEW. Twenty. Just because you can find ONE PLACE overcharging people for it doesn't make that the case. It's like saying "well this one guy on my block wants $10k for his 1987 ford 150 with no engine or transmission, must be what it's worth." Lol. Get real dude. Even if you buy it on Blizzard's own website is it cheaper.

So how does paying any money whatsoever for additional content make any sense?
So to be clear, WoW's MoP dropping in price is clear sign of value rising... SWTOR dropping in price is the opposite?

Yes, MoP at a release price of 39.99 had more content than the upcoming SWTOR expansion.... at 19.99..... you may as well proclaim that a house that costs twice as much as another is going to be larger.....

What does a house value have todo with a game expansion value exactly ?. is one of the expansion in a really rough area where its libel to be broken into or something.

Products don't drop in price because people are buying more of it.

That you think an expansion who's price has nose-dived after three months means it is "doing better" is so silly that you are even having a real discussion anymore.
Makebs price has "nose dived" the moment it appeared for pre order by 50% by your logic. Nice one.

Pre-ordered today! Looking forwards to the new planet, levels, world event and more. Keep it up Bioware, you still got lots of loyal fans left even though the forums are full of gripers.

In my case its not WoW so its better by default =) I would rather play AngryBirds - the MMO then revisting azeroth.

Oh you're a SWtoR Developer that you can say what is in the Expansion? The only thing we now right now about features in MoP that aren't in RotHC is a new race (cathar will be cartellshop exclusive) and 5 zones. But we do not know how large makeb is exaktly. So it could be worth one, two or three zones not?

We also know that it was planned that all FPs without HM would get one for makeb (but there is no official announcment to that, yet its just a romur from the gamescom).

Whatt we also now that on releasedate MoP was 4 times the price of RotHC to subscribers.
