Skills are sort of a personal thing in EVE Online, where they've been bound to characters since the dawn of time and probably before I even first logged online (well, technically a few years after, as EVE launched in 2003), but now you'll be able to trade skill points. Meaning that you can sell your excess skill points for fun and profit, but in order to do so you'll need to pay the price first.
Prices are as follows, for skill extractors:
1 - 1,000 AUR or $5.49
5 - 4,500 AUR or $24.99
10 - 8,000 AUR or $44.00
As you can see, it's in your absolute best interest to always buy packs of 10. For those who don't know what AUR is, it's 3,500 AUR for one PLEX. One PLEX is $19.95. You can buy the skill extractors with both USD (or your countries currency I'm sure), or in AUR. Skill extractors will also come in the promotional subscription packages they're currently offering.
You can read it all here. It's pretty complex for my simple mind, but I'm sure fans of EVE Online have it together. EVE is a pretty cool space MMO and this update should help new players more than anyone else, as it'll let you skill up much faster.
