I mean I honestly wouldn't have a problem with it if had the same cost as MMO's, about 10-15$ a month, I could live with something like that. But 40$ upfront with only a year and 3 year options? Thats asking a bit much in my opinion. Since when you think about it, how often are you really gonna need trainers for games? I only get maybe 1-2 games a year max, if there were a monthly subscription availible I could basically subscribe for a month to mess around with those games, then unsubscribe when I get tired of them at the end of the month, and with the only option of a year subscription, it just doesn't really feel that flexible to me.
I don't mean to be presumptuous of your business practices and I don't mean to sound rude or whiny, if I do sound that way I am sorry, but I just think having a monthly subscription, along with the others options for the hardcore gamers, would probably entice more casual gamers to subscribe to the site for the trainers and such and therefore earn you a greater profit.
We do not plan to create a monthly subscription for CH at this time. With most games getting 20-50 patches over the course of 6-12 months (each of which requires a new trainer), it just doesn't make sense.
It isn't really that much. $40.00 for a year is a damn good price. I plan on getting a three year membership when my one year expires.
Whenever I get a new game I always download the trainer for it. As of right now I have 33 trainers.
Well I guess that more or less answers my question, I appreciate the prompt response as well.
