The announcement managed to upset the EverQuest II players but they’ll surely get used to this pretty soon, especially because you can now purchase lots of potions which improve for a few hours your character’s stats. Also, Sony promise that they have chosen the items “carefully in an effort to avoid a disruption in gameplay balance”. Also, “Station Cash (and items purchased with SC) are intended to allow for convenience and added customisation. Such items provide players with a unique gameplay experience for nominal fees.”
One hundred SC costs 1 buck or 1 EUR, but it’s not known yet how much you’ll have to spend on new potions, armor, pets and so on – if you want to purchase them, of course. But now there’s another thing that bugs us even more: what will Sony do next? Weekly DLC?
