Daybreak’s $300 all-in-one package is halfway sold out

But we're evil.

It looks like Daybreak has hit upon a winning formula to make a quick buck: sell everything at a high price and make it exclusive. We predicted that its $300 lifetime subscription packages would probably sell out, and days later, we’re over halfway there.

The MMO studio announced that 2000 of the 4000 sub packages are now gone after having gone on sale all of two days ago. This lifetime all-access membership grants a continual subscription for EverQuest, EverQuest II, DC Universe Online, and PlanetSide 2 (but not, as it’s been noted, Z1 Battle Royale or the upcoming PlanetSide Arena). The studio is also running a $200 promotion that gives players a year of membership to its stable along with a “special set” of bonus items in each game.

Should you buy one before they’re gone? Get MJ’s take in her latest EverQuesting column this atfernoon.

Daybreak must be desperate for money right now. I know it’s crazy to say, but I kind of miss the John Smedley days. At least things weren’t as bad as they are now.

Updated again…. Now the Lifetime Sub is available through Dec 31, unlimited buy’s.

I think I called that one.

Any bets it gets extended yet again?

The fact it is a great deal for those who might only play one of those games means I wonder how this will effect Daybreak in the long run.
Short-term gain for long-term loss.

Why does the industry need a new super hero mmorpg when people are willing to throw this much money away at a much older game.

Will these games even be alive in the next 3 years? I mean, $300 is a tall order for these old games.

I wonder though, can you transfer or sell these lifetime subs to somebody else like EVE PLEX?

$99 gets the yearly sub… add another $80/yr to get in game P2W items, but if you sub for $99, then get a lifetime they will give you a refund for the $99 in Daybreak Cash!!!@
Total death spiral cash grab.

well there are suckers born every minute lol.

according to my faith in humanity, I have to believe that most of those 2000 were “holiday gifts” to employees and their extended families – and their mailmen.

or Daybreak is blatantly lying. which i wouldnt put past such a shady shit russian scam company

Daybreak’s links to Russian oligarchs are the reason I will never support their games again. Wish I could play EQ2 but I cant with a good conscious. I imagine the money from these life time subscriptions went to some shady place to be used for purposes we probably don’t want to know about.

Kind of sad that this doesn’t include a BattlePass for the new PS:A game. They’re basically boasting a deal that doesn’t include their latest title so for me that’s a no go.

I’m sure it will sell out regardless.

The “new” PS2 game is just an add-on to the existing PS2 game.

This smells just like when Funcom was selling all of the content and episodes to the The Secret World for $20 & then announced Secret World Legends 6 months later.
