The lights are on
EA executives dropped the news that BioWare's Star Wars MMORPG is expected to ship in fiscal 2011 in a conference call with investors. This puts the release in April at the earliest, and clarifies the original "Spring 2011" launch window.CEO John Riccitiello noted that while the game will hopefully be a profitable venture, EA's cash flow is running slow right now. "MMOs can cost as much as two to six, seven times as much as a front-line title, if they’re done right.... It is a major investment for us."The trailer that EA showed at last year's E3, while impressive, had a higher budget than many full-fledged games (no, I'm not exaggerating). Are all those truckloads of money going to result in the kind of game that we've been hoping for? Are you going to drop your current MMO, or take your first dip into the genre, when The Old Republic finally comes out?
I can't believe they are only releasing this Game on "Window Based PC's"? That sucks B@LL$! What about us XBOX 360, PlayStation 3 & iMac owners? Whatever I hope this game flops on PC so they release it on a console!
Maybe by then I'll have a way of playing it...
If all goes according to plan, this will definitely be my first MMO. I can wait a little longer than expected...I still need to figure out my computer situation anyway.
Dumbness, I played KOTOR 2 and thought it was a good concept but had lots of problems. If this is on the 360 ill get it but I would have prefered it as a single player game.
Grumble grumble...and to think we were pushing reserves on it just at the end of last year...
tips don't look at calender
i just hope that its a good game(epic)
