It's exactly what you expect: pre-paid subscription time for SWTOR
on November 17, 2012
Listen, the people giving this item poor reviews are morons. Here is why you should ignore them:
Reason one: Many people are leaving reviews based on their feelings about the game as a whole. This is irrelevant. Good or bad reviews about the game should be submitted for the game itself, not for this item which is merely a prepaid 60-day subscription card. It is the exactly the same as what you could buy from any other retailer.
Reason two: Many people leaving reviews are complaining about the price, the service of the seller, or the actual validity of the item received. This item is sold by many different sellers on the Amazon website. Not every seller is going to offer the product at the same price, the same shipping expense, or even necessarily be as trustworthy as Amazon themselves. None of the criticisms about the price of the time card being too high actually apply to the product being sold directly from Amazon. Amazon has always sold this product AT or BELOW the retail cost, which is $29.99.
Chances are if you are reading this review, you are already familiar with the game. By the time this review is live, the game will have introduced a restricted Free-To-Play option. Anyone considering the game can try it out for nothing, then purchase a subscription if and only if they feel they want to enjoy the game without the restrictions placed on free players.
Do the smart thing - put this item in your cart and watch the price for a while. Make sure you've chosen to purchase it from Amazon and not a 3rd party. You will notice the price can fluctuate, but will never go above $29.99. If you see it drop down to the $26-27 range, then pull the trigger and select free shipping, and you have gotten a bargain.
