    Well, it's in better shape than what can be said for some of their previous releases. Galaxies was an absolute cluster of a release, as was Gates of Discord. This game is at least stable, if not a bit laggy at times, and the early content is done. But I guess they feel like they need to beat WoW to the market, despite being behind them in developement. Was at least hoping Sony was going to change for this game, and release a "finished"(used subjectively with MMORPGs) product, since EQ2 is shaping up to be a decent game. Oh well...maybe next time...

    Actualy, Vivendi has supposedly said something about WoW being out the 22nd. Although I don't think that's 100% official, since there hasn't been an official annoucement. But who knows.

    [EDIT]
    Of course, Blizzard would be smart to start open beta before the 8th. Try to draw a few people away who would buy EQ2 just because it's coming out first.

    Yeah, that's the link I was reading earlier, but couldn't find it again. Be interesting to see if it comes out true.

    Sobs taking their time. The "open beta sign ups coming soon" has ben up for several weeks now? If Vivendi is pressuring them to an early release they better get cracking on open beta soon.


    I love gaming, mmmmmmmm

    Well, open beta is usually just for stressing the servers. Which they did fairly well with the Stress Test. So they could probably get away with a very short open beta. Although they will still probably start it before EQ2 just to draw attention away.

    maybe you all just missed the open beta memo...

    hahah, wouldnt that be funny.

    there is hope for some rushed MMOs, eve online was rushed but they patched it weekly at the beginning, and now with its newest expanion supposed to come out on the 2nd, they pushed it back to the 17th b/c they didnt want to rush it... i guess some peopel learn from their mistakes.

    once WoW goes retail, no other game will exist for me for..I'd say about 4-6 months, maybe longer.
