I know people wanna go wah wah with the $15/month sub, but I will be there at the midnight launch for this game. $180 a year is next to nothing if you have even a minimum wage job at McDonald's or Target. I'm going to play it, and I'm going to love every second of it.

The only things that concern me: #1. The development cycle for this Elder Scrolls game. It took Bethesda 4.5-5 years to go from Oblivion to Skyrim. Now from Skyrim to this it will only have been 3 years. But that is what the sub is for I guess. Continuous new content and fix any bugs (which, even as a fan of the series, there will be PLENTY of). And #2. That it was decided at last second to port to consoles. So it will only have had like a year and a half, 2 at most, of development specifically for these new consoles. Which again, is what the sub will be for, to fix any bugs.

I'm just counting down the days though.

You realize this isn't the core Elder Scrolls team right?

Bethesda Game Studios is a developer.
Bethesda Softworks is a publisher.
Zenimax Online is the developer making ESO.
Zenimax is the main company that owns all of the above.

You also forgot the part where MMOs suck in general.

Meaning TES Online will be a bad game with some TES paint slapped on it.
