They might as well not even make it for the xbox one because no one would buy it and keep the subscription running.

That's microsoft for ya.

PS+ Not ruled out either

Maybe they should just drop their sub fee now and avoid the embarrassment of having to make it a free to play pay to win game later.

Oh an ps4 requires ps+ for multiplayer, so is there a response from sony?

Might as well make it a PC exclusive if neither of them budge. No would pay for that either.

I think they should get rid of that 15 a month subscription fee first.

Also shouldn't they be pushing that for PSN since the PSN players are also going to have to pay to play the game?

Seriously why buy this game when you get get 3 RPGs coming out next year for the price you will be paying for this ONE game a year?

They didn't make an exception for SquareEnix when they released Final Fantasy 11 for the X360. Gamers who played it payed both Microsoft and SE for access to that. Not sure why Bethesda would think it would be any different.

Did anyone not expect this?

I'm more worried about paying $15 a month.

Perhaps because Microsoft cares more about Bethesda than SquareEnix?

I could have sworn that PS+ was not required for subscription-based MMOs.
People were even saying so last time I was on the PS4 ESO board.
