Additional costs:

But Nick Yee[3] , a PhD student at Stanford studying "immersive virtual reality," cites that many players are "vehemently against the sale of virtual goods for real life money."
  • Strategy guides such as "Star Wars Galaxies: The Complete Guide" by Prima, can assist you with game playing and strategies. The guide can be purchased for $14.39[4] .

  • Gameplay requires high-speed internet access.
  • The base game and the expansion packs can be purchased in a package, which is a better deal than purchasing each game individually.
