@coldreactive said in Sell a permanent premium pass for 25000 AC.:
I'd accept it from a marketing perspective if it was 600-1000 USD or more. Allow me to elaborate...
It costs 3900 AC per 90 Days. If we take that and divide it by 90, we get about 43.3333333 AC per day.
Using that (Rounding down to 43 per day) we can times that by about 365.25 days per year to get 15827.5 AC per year.
We can further calculate the average person's expected play time... let's say at least 8 years... so we take 15827.5 and times that by 8, to get about 126620 AC needed to equate that.
Maybe the average hardcore player, it should still be accessible and cheap enough that it tempts some other people to buy it. The people who buy this pass are still likely going to keep buying AC tickets/SG/etc and it may promote even more revenue for SEGA. As this isn't an actual 'subscription based MMO' I think them getting that much money up front is a good amount of support. Although with NGS coming out I could see it being pushed to maybe 33000~ if such a thing like this were to exist.
(Unless by play time you don't mean time played, but figure it this way, if you're someone who's on/off then when you might be off 6 months, come back buy 1 month, leave again, etc. And many players go without ever using Premium. so I think overall anything around the 25000~ range would be profit and get more people who otherwise wouldn't pay a monthly fee.)
