well, they said Rift was about "rifts" (but really dungeons) and they had server closures but not server closures ("trial servers") so, it fits with the company it seems.

For 10 dollars, the portable bank is worth it alone lol. The other two items are nice though! I hope they do more of this!

the Gamebreaker TV panel says it's unanimous, 4votes to none: ayup, it's a microtransaction. Welcome Rift.. we await your FTP mode in the Fall (we already know you have the cash shop) :P

Awaiting Ren54 to come defend this one. Rift now officially has more microtransactions in it's game than SWTOR. Talk about funny.. the yuks with this one is priceless.

@real65rcncom EA's holding back on the cash shop until subs drop off after a couple of months. It'll come soon enough, don't worry.

@real65rcncom they also have more game in their game, seeing as how ToR isn't out yet.

@Lucidus

let's not deny Rift it's moment in the publicity sun by talking about what SWTOR might do. that's still a few months off. :)

Lets' just sit back and watch Rift fans say this is no big deal and it's not a microtransaction.

I'm sure Ren will be here any second. Puremallace has long abandoned defending this game.

@real65rcncom yes, it's a MT....

sorry, am I missing something? This is a big deal how again? Cripes on a cracker, how many mmos are there out there that DON'T have an MT of some kind or another? (collector editions, item shops, pet shops, vanity items etc...)

@fallwind didn't say it was a "big deal" lol. personally fluff doesn't bother me actually

It's just that people like Ren have been going on and on for months about how ToR, Gw2 and other games will have micros. People said "so what" and Rift fanbois pumped their chest saying we wont' ever have them like they were special snowflakes

It's funny to watch the scrambling and the retractions about how 'evil' cash shops/micros are not really all that bad now that they are in Rift from those folks is all

@real65rcncom AHH, ok. Ya, I agree, what is the big deal? Rift has had MTs since the CE.

hell, I can't remember a big name MMO that didn't have a collectors edition in the last few years.

MT's are not exactly the spawn of regulos...

That's because they're the same person. Gotta remember, just because a troll gets their account banned doesn't mean they can't just make/use another one.

Milk it while you can, Trion. It won't last.

Oh he'll be here. Spouting his hatred of SWTOR, which has no cash shop, microtransactions, or anything of the sort planned for launch or post-launch. Im sure he'll drop his "The OverRated" comment or some other such useless drivel. Enjoy Rift while you can Ren, in 2+ months, Subs will be dropping by 50%.

I could refute almost all of your points, but since you're just going to keep making stuff up and assuming it's true I'm not even going to bother. Did SWTOR bang your girlfriend or something?

Hate to admit it, but Ren54 is right on most points. After hands on time I cancelled my TOR pre-order. Too many other great games this year to buy.
