Im guessing the last 5 days have either torpedoed the deal or made they have made the asking price much lower.

speculations, and hope they r wrong
thou, since i heard DUST was gonna be PS3 exclusive , given i'm a paranoid androd, i feared that might be an option, and could actually explain some stuff, like:
CCP is tryin to trim the fat (in sony's opinon) off EVE, to make it more jucy for the big japanese borther

I do not mind when a company is "un-professional" well it has it's charm in ways what CCP had...

When the bean-counters come around to help you.... hide and cover...

This is the end

Was just re-reading the interview John Smedley gave to Massively regarding the closing down of Star Wars galaxies and this paragraph suddenly made a lot so sense.

Massively - "So you don't think that sandboxes (and sandbox systems) are dead for SOE? Will you ever make a new sandbox with SWG's pioneering features?"

John Smedley - "The answer is... stay tuned on the subject of sandboxes. We're super excited about the future of sandbox gaming. Let me just leave it at that!"

Oh for ****'s sake, Sony. You ruin MMO's, don't you understand that? Stay the **** away from my precious EVE. Anybody wanna join me in carpet bombing Sony's HQ?

If you want to pop on the tinfoil hat, perhaps this MT and P2W guff has really all just been about trying to make themselves attractive to a Sony or other big player? Also, if they're in negotiations, might explain why they've done **** all to address their community's concerns over the last few days because:

a) they're otherwise occupied
b) they don't know the future of the game under Sony
c) they actually have no control of the future of the game anymore

/tinfoil hat.

We’ve recieved the following inside information by a CCP source who has asked to remain anonymous:

SONY and CCP are in talks of having SONY become a major partner, or even a controlling partner, in CCP, via stock acquisition. There is mounting evidence of various operations of the companies becoming closer in nature, function and style. With the recnt closure (24/6) of Star Wars Galaxies, the failed SOE SCI-FI flagship MMO, it may be the case that SOE is looking to acquire a stake in a leading Sci-Fi MMO.

EVE News is closely monitoring the matter and will update as more details emerge. Stay tuned…

While CCP continues to keep players in the dark and ignore their questions other players announce their department from EVE Online.

“This, along with some real life factors, are causing my ship’s drives to power down. Triathlon race season is upon me and my major race, a Half Ironman, is coming up in 4 weeks; it is time for the last major push before race day. Additionally the recent CCP revelations and departure from their original mission statement (seriously CCP, re-read your mission statement), are pushing me into a timeout.” – Blake

So you don't think that sandboxes (and sandbox systems) are dead for SOE? Will you ever make a new sandbox with SWG's pioneering features?

The answer is... stay tuned on the subject of sandboxes. We're super excited about the future of sandbox gaming. Let me just leave it at that!

Quote:
The result is that the company is suffering because we cannot sustain the development of EVE, DUST and WOD. EVE is not creating enough revenue which means that solutions are sought, solutions that CCP was vehemently against a few years ago.


The quote above explains all.

Actually, they are attempting to scuttle the ship while still independent and moving before it gets drydocked and becomes a senior citizen casino and buffet with SONY stamped on the side.

Q: Hearing reports of Sony/CCP merger, any truth to that?

CCP Fallouts response:To the best of my knowledge, no, but i am not at all qualified to adequately answer this question tbh.
