From CCP Smedley:

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!

Sure hoping the news item is troll and absolute fiction. But in the light of Dust exclussiveness for PS3, CCP's recent actions and the quoted piece of interview... I am cautious to dismiss it straight away. Best course of action - wait and see. Ofc with regards to Sony takeover gossip, the recent crysis with MT should be totally revised by CCP.

EDIT: Read about the Twit denying the buy-out... will do for now ;)

SHUT THE FCK UP WHINING AT EVERTHING YOU TWISTED BITTER VETS.

This could actually be a good thing. Devs will no longer be put in precarious positions of being in the middle of player vs producer wars like we are seeing now.

EVE and its dev teams will be better funded meaning YOU wont get screwed for every penny. With sony being asian, you might even see the subscriptions dissapear entirely in favour of a better micro-transaction system.. who knows ?.

It could be a good thing so I endorse the take-over.

But the question remains: Will you buy out Sony to develop Dust 514 in peace without Sony interference?

At least we got an answer on that, so what's taking so long about answering if there's going to be any non-vanity items in the MT shop?

^ CCP Fallout Sticky Comment on this issue.

Interesting how fast they did react this time.

With Fallout obviously having full authority to speak on behalf of CCP.

This is at least something good news.

Any chance of getting a decent comment about our other concerns?

100% False like the 100% we will not be changing our business model and the 100% we will not be pursuing MT in Eve? Laughing

A Puplisher (Sony) spents money on one of their Developer (CCP - Dust514), to fund the developing of a game.
Ohnoes ... how can this be possible?

YES, also get unnerf Tuxford so the server goes down. We need quiet time to iron out the issues.

At least a quick response form CCP is Comforting about the SOE stuff..

Which does not bode well for our original question....

I must applaud how fast CCP came with an answer. People are still in a state of panic due to resent revelations and can easily assume the worst.

You went about it all wrong, you guys should have lied and said Sony was the reason for the MT changes in EVE. I'm sure you would have regained a lot of trust that way. Then again that would be too easy. Razz

CCP is not an independent company though, there are many, many shareholders and the founders only have 4% of the company. Who all has the rest, and does Sony own any CCP shares. Please provide proof. (Sorry, but we honestly can't believe anything that you guys say anymore...)

All of this has happen before, all of this will happen again.
I hate to use a BSG line, but it fits!

Wouldent suprise me at all if its true. CCP has bitten off more than they can chew trying to develop too many games. MT is not going over like they had hoped, now they are facing money problems. In steps SOE to save the day!

If SOE takes over EVE, be prepared for half azzed content and buggy patches pushed out in pre-beta condition, MT for ships twice as good as can be in-game crafted, Ships that re-spawn after being destroyed, No more penalty to dieing, Slow painful death of the in-game crafting system, EVE devs fired for resisting changes, Deleting of all topics that say anything negitive towards EVE, lots of folks banned.

Ive seen it happen and so far, this past week has been all too familar.

Now this is what CCP do when something is false!

So the refusal to comment on non-vanity MT items speaks louder and louder!

Might be because that one could be solved pretty quick by picking up the batphone, and business decisions that are not yet decided upon take a little longer.
