    All right,i know that this might get most of you guys angry and will probably disagree after reading the thread's name,I really appreciate the generosity of MadMunki and them willing to give us such a quality product for free,But honestly,i'd rather pay to get a polished Game earlier than waiting for a couple of years,Atom are doing this and it honestly seems like they are succeeding with their idea,because for the honesty Neotopia right now seems like it's something that will take ages,Let me know what you think about that : /

      Hey there rorschach, Neotopia may seem that long but it wont be that long, that i promise they are taking there time on it with much effort, and hope to have a small version out as, soon as possible but id rather them take there time, than rush into things, bc thats how bugs and complaints start, i think the latest is a year but will see

    Yea I think paying is good too, but we would have pay in game stuff as well which would be a downer. So I would leave it the way it is because people would ask why someone would pay money just to spend more money on the clothing it would look like they are tryin to steal from us etc... Maybe madmunkid will add is subscriptions in game per month get extra stuff, everyday earn more neobits than regular. Members etc... :)

    Appreciate your replies guys but i think it's taking more than a year,and since money is the only barricade i am still convinced that a payed version is for good,it's only an opinion tho.

    Hey, I am all for a paid subscription model myself, but what we have to remember is that a lot of people are really bitter towards Sony at the moment because they bought all this stuff on Home and now will lose the lot. So, making them pay initially probably won't exactly attract people to neotopia. An alternative would be to have the option to pay (like Playstation Plus) but then that might create a hierarchy or elitist system, which goes against the community idea of neotopia where everyone is equal and has an equal say in what happens. It's a difficult decision to make, but I think making it free, at least in the beginning has to be the way ahead. Once that happens, people will be able to buy spaces or items depending on how neotopia is developed. Anyway, if another kickstarter is launched in addition to other funding, then people like me can pay towards the development of neotopia with a one-off lump sum.

    Well,what can i say,you convinced me haha,although what i meant was just buying neotopia as a normal game with no other subscriptions except for plus,But you are right,some people are still complaining about their Home-Spent money : /

    Hmm, interesting idea Rorschach! I never thought of it like a game that you could purchase, like a ps4 game. It's an idea I suppose! I thought of it more like a virtual reality. I suppose on the most basic level, it would be like social media that is free to use, but obviously we are all following the Home model because that's what we have been used to. Maybe buying it as a product, rather than having a free service, might be a good idea. I just never thought of it in that way. I am still not sure how many would buy it though, but maybe once Home is gone, people might not mind buying it like a game. Also, if they buy access to it like a game, how much would they be prepared to buy on top of that for items. Hmmm, will think on this now...

    I'd prefer a paid format as long as we get to choose a few free packs.

    The majority of users will prefer a payment up front if this cuts down the amount of trolling, The idea that atom universe has of a demo in feburay and a one off payment at start suits me

    Same here,as i said again paying for the product to get it faster and better seems good,and apparently the demo will be available next month in store,can't wait for all of these goodies!

    Free, paid, excusive perks for paying members, As long as we get Neotopia opened I think many will come. It's got the best team possible. :cool:

    Greetings:)
    this is a hard topic I don't really have that much good idea just that I like to pay in PSN if that possible, now I know there might be tax so added that as well, or if u decide on purchase items maybe a live digital animal but I so want a TV and Crackle oww I still watch the anime there :)

    Plus if the game will contain in-game purchasable clothing it would be wrong... It'd make people think madmunki is trying to take advantage of us and make us pay for the game, clothing, and locomotion's...

    I think keeping the game free, and making us pay for clothing with in-game currency + buying currency with our money it would be good I'd be spending ALOT of money in there :p

    A payment which contains a starter pack clothing etc or different levels of starter packs , For instance £4.99 for app and clothing,basic appartment or £8.99 for app clothing, Special/Basic appartment ,These starter packs to be one user only. This would help those who are there to socialise and have fun,And kill a lot of trolling accounts.. I understand a lot of people want to start free and if the internet was a better place i would agree,

    Personally i would prefer to pay for a version that goes beyond the basic free version,similar to how PS Plus is. We can have a choice..There could be a free version open to anyone, and if certain people dont mind paying extra,,,a deluxe type version or the free version with added exclusive areas and products for those who wish to pay for additional content.

    Oh you mean a subscription type of payments.
    Example:
    [​IMG]

    I think it would be great to pay monthly, but maybe just have it for the PS plus payers because i wouldn't want to pay extra with a monthly/yearly ps plus i would be paying now lol.

    I strongly disagree....i think that "and i repeat" we don't need any subscription ,just buy the frigging product as a paid 'game,etc' that's for people ,who want to have the game like,This year??bc,a subscription is gonna be a pain in the butt^
