The whole trueth
Hello all, and I would like to thank this site for posting this information on SWG. Myself and others have started a facebook cause and a ipetion that is the start of stopping Lucas Arts, not Sony from shutting down the game.
First of all Lucas Arts has lied to all of us and you can read this lie at: http://www.shacknews.com/article/55548/star-wars-galaxies-wont-die
Secondly, both Sony and Lucas Arts have made a bad decision and a mistake that will cost them. They sold items. The consumer will not be able to access their paid items if they shut down the game. You cannot charge someone something for an item and then take it away.
Thirdly, I am not sure who made this decision, a very poor one, but it would make more sense to do some or all of the following:
1. Offer SWG as a life time purchase just as Star Trek has done.
2. Offer free SWG to those who sign up for The Old Republic.
3. Just make it a free game and continue selling the cards.
4. Release the source so that we can keep what is ours.
Though your site and others seem to think this is fruitless effort then I say only this: Freedom is not Free! Lucas Arts cannot high jack us and force us to play The Old Republic in fear that SWG will take away from it.
Please go to these 2 links so that we can stop the madness of Lucas Arts. Please tell all your friends!
