EVE Online Subscription Fees and Payment Options

PG has gotta ask "Why no bank transfer options for Eve-Online - at least in the EU?" And why is it taking CCP so long to get a prepaid option launched? If I wanted to play Eve, I would be very motivated to "pretend I was from the US" and pay in $ rather than euros. A 12 mo subscription of euro 131.40 is t today's exchange rate $191.850 USD or almost 50% more. Vice versa, that annual fee is about 90 euro! WOW http://www.eve-online.com/pnp/pricing.asp

"The original purchase price for EVE includes thirty days of free game time. A credit card is required to establish your account. MasterCard, Visa and American Express are accepted, as well as a variety of payment options offered through PayByCash™.
