Dang, that's pretty damn cheap. So can the subscription time be bought directly from inside the game, or does someone have to buy it with actual money ($) first, then can trade it in-game? Seems like if it's too easy to buy in-game, they'd lose out on monies, but who knows! I'm sure there's someone who has thought about that stuff more than I!

Yay4sean Have you played Guild Wars 2? It's a bit like their gems-to-gold conversion, from what it sounds like. Basically, you'll earn gold or whatever they call gold in WildStar. You're then able to exchange your gold for CREDD in-game, which will be the premium currency. Then you exchange CREDD for game time. All of this in-game, assumedly. In order to keep things balanced, I'm sure there will be a conversion rate of gold-to-CREDD that fluctuates based on the market.

Ah I see, well I'm looking forward to it. A shame I'll already be playing Destiny 100% by the time it is out! Oh well! And $60 sounds much more appropriate. Still perfectly fine since it is possible to buy subscription time in-game!

Sooo, basically I had the whole thing wrong due to some sketch reporting by our sources. Which led to sketch reporting by myself! That's what I deserve writing something without an official source, I suppose.

WildStar will retail for $59.99 when it launches, which comes with a month free subscription. It will have a $14.99 subscription after that initial month wears out.

Instead of paying for the subscription, players can spend CREDD. Like in EVE Online, CREDD can be bought from Carbine Studios directly. CREDD will cost $19.99 and can also be traded in-game with other players for gold.

The gold-to-CREDD exchange rate will fluctuate with the market, based upon both how much gold currently exists in addition to how many people have bought the $19.99 CREDD and are selling it on the market.

Yay4sean Sorry for the mixup.
