That's one reason why it should be played on PC. Another is the addon system and the fact that it's easier with K/M. You can use a gamepad with it but it's slightly clunky.

 

If there are any ESO PC gamers, hit me up and we'll party some time.

I can understand someone not viewing $180/year as worth it. But from my perspective, it's absolutely worth it. For me MMOs prevent me from buying new games as frequently since I'm investing more time into the MMO and not plowing through a game like AC4 or Watch Dogs every month. Also, I adore ESO; I have since October when I received my beta invite. I feel that it's a nice middle ground between being an Elder Scrolls title and mixing in the MMO aspect.

Well, that's pretty subjective when we're on an audio enthusiast forum where people will spend A LOT more money to get that 1% improvement in sound. When I played WoW pretty actively a few years back, I didn't have a ton of money and needed something to keep me entertained most of the time. For ~$12 a month, I got a lot of time and enjoyment out of the game. I didn't buy many other games because that one kept me busy. It was a great bargain IMO. When I look back on that and UO, I know I will probably never get that kind of enjoyment out of a game again. It makes me a bit sad. So even without the cost, the experiences I had are more or less priceless to me. 

 

I can't speak for ESO (and I'm pretty burned out on MMOs regardless), but I've read some good things about it, so it's not out of the realm of possibility of it being worth it for some people.

This has been pretty standard pricing for mmo's since EQ and UO and WoW vanilla. Not sure why it would come as a surprise to anyone at this point unless you're like 14. Based on your multi-thousand dollar gaming system, in guessing not...

Oh I gotcha, I keep forgetting that a lot of non-mmo players are interested in ESO. IMO its a just okay MMO and a just okay elder scrolls game. As a veteran of both, I find ESO kind of disappointing and not worth the money. But that's not because I think the pricing policy is bad... Just the game.

Edit: Also found the Beyerdynamic MMX300 and not sure about those either.

Hello mate. I've got the ATH-ADG1s and more than happy with them. I haven't tried the MMX300s but I have tried A40s and I much prefer the Audio Technicas. I'm a console gamer (PS4) playing Call of Duty and having tried them with Turtle Beach's ACU and Astro's  Mixamp, I would definitely go with the Mixamp.

The headset itself is comfortable and provides excellent audio cues to the extent you can tell not only the direction but also relative distance.

For other uses, you're probably better reading up from other people's reviews as I only use them for gaming.
