I'd try it out, but if it's a pay-to-play MMO I doubt I'll bother really. I like TES, but mainly because it's such a good single player experience. Add in multiplayer and I dunno if that will go over well.

That said, it would be nice to play the single player game with a friend. There is a mod in the works for that, actually.

I prefer single player myself but it would be fun to play Ad-Hoc with a friend. I'm not up for an MMO however.

Whenever I think of an Elder Scrolls MMO,I always picture someone complaining about another player stealing their things......I guess they could prevent that by only allowing players to steal from NPC's though.

I really do not like the MMO business model, be it free to play, or pay to play. I feel that as a consumer, I get ripped off either way. Paying monthly decreases the overall value of the item you purchased as you do not actually own the product. Instead, you are monthly renting the product for without paying monthly, you have a disc (or a digital download) that can not be played and is therefore useless (without the exception of free servers on the pc). As for the free to play model, you own a limited version of the product unless micro-transactions are made for better gear, access to enhanced features, ect.

Agreed. This is surely more preferable. More bang for your buck.

Not all MMO's run those options, Guild Wars 2 for instance is the usual $60 up front and done.

True. I've played Guild Wars 1, in fact. Nevertheless, it certainly isn't a popular business model for MMO's and most likely will not be used if there is an Elder Scrolls MMO.

Unless the world is expanded and all of the continants are avalible to travel to (Skyrim, Hammerfell, etc etc) it wouldnt be big enough for an MMO. And i soubt they'd open everything up because it wouls really spoil the magic of entering a new and unexplored reigon in, if there is one, the next Elder Scrolls game.

Bethesda isnt stupid ans they know what there fans want.
If anything, im hoping to see a Boderlands drop in, drop out co-op style that buffs the enimies. And maybe a few extra tough co-op dungeons.

As far as I know, it hasn't been said whether or not there's other continents or the like. So there's there's that possibility. Could also be that the MMO would set itself up in an alternate timeline or time period, in which the world is vastly altered by some giant doomsday. Making it a non-issue for the "mainline" TES games, provided there are more of those incoming.
Then again, haven't really looked much into the lore.

Yeah it's very unpopular, if somebody subs to WoW for a year, they have already spent more than they would have on the fancy-expensive version of GW2, or two of the regular copies. While it would be very unlikely just by looking at past examples from the genre that a TES MMO would be pay up front, it's possible. No way to really grade the game (if it exists) on that until we know for sure really.

Bethesda making an MMO? We'll all be trapped under the gameworld for 3 months after launch.
