assuming CCP did sell to sony, it wouldnt be an insta-fail of eve. i recently bought a PS3, im liking it very much, some good arcade titles, exclusives are amazing, and the free "playstation home" thing is also pretty nice...
yea its more confusing then xbox, and some things i think to myself"wtf too expensive" but its nothing more then any other company

Yes. A one-time loss (which wasn't all that big on the scale of things) won't really stop them from buying something if they really want to buy it and can convince enough stake holders that it'll be worth it…

"...The attack on Sony's PlayStation Network and Qriocity music-streaming service compromised the personal information of 77 million customers accounts. On Sunday, the company suspended service for Sony Online Entertainment, best known for creating online multi-player games such as EverQuest and The Matrix Online, after an intrusion exposed personal data for about 24.6 million subscribers...."

You mean THAT Sony?

Thanks go to Mintchip for finding this little gem.

EVE is the new SOE.


Next time mintchip tells you some new and exciting "news", maybe you should ask your mom if the other kids are going to make fun of you for posting it on internet.

Plus isn't there a stickied thread and several ccp posts that say SOE is not buying ccp and nor will they ever sell.



yeah there is there was also a thread saying they would never ever introduce MT's, and lets not forget the "we'll solve lag but it will take :18 months:" thread. CCP has proven time and time again all they want is MON$Y, if Sony waves enough Benjamin's in Hilmar's face he'll sign anything.


It's not often I see so many incorrect statements in such a concise post.

You really should actually make an attempt to understand the threads you are attempting to misquote.

It's an interesting article, but just speculation.

Thinking about it just makes me think of those bizarro land comics, with crazy vikings making Sony experience "non-consensual PVP" Twisted Evil.

Well how on earth would CCP know what SONY is considering? Sure, maybe Zymurgist is lying to you, but that's unlikely compared to the chance that the two companies simply haven't brought it up.

The key aspect of "non-consensual PVP" is of course the "sensual" part, the release of which we are still waiting for.

Hate to burst your bubble Fix Lag...

...but this came and went during Incarna launch with all the NEX fiasco, 'Watch what they do, not what they say', and failure to respond etc etc etc

Not news to the forum - so no worries on stirring the community over this one.

I'd just stick with monoclegate, the fact no announcement has been made on the timeframe for the next Incarna content patch, the rumors that racial CQ's aren't landing until winter, the total abandonment of Faction Warfare (no devs at fanfest for their own event, no devblog as promised, nothing in winter xpac), the nullsec-driven CSM that wants to nerf WHs to save their bots, the curbing of subscription growth making Incarna the worst expansion ever (thus far, could turn around), the loss of subscriptions over Monoclegate, the fact scarriers aren't being balanced until winter, Incarna being used as development for WoD (even though CCP says its the other way around), the fact you're paying for two games that don't exist to be developed instead of your game, the lack of station spinning, the door, missions not being upgraded (still) but agents were simplified, the introduction of more lag and more time-wasting at the station (FREE SCOTTY - he was faster), and the general lack of communication from, faith in, and intelligence of the parent company of EVE Online, formally known as CCP, now primarily known by other names forbidden by the forum rules of the OLD forums because the new forums are still not up due to almost compromising account security.

That ought to give you lots of material to work with...Fix Lag, I mean. CCP already has their hands full with other more important developments.

I made it a wall intentionally - makes it easier to be ignored, wouldn't want players to get upset or anything and devs can just double-click it and backspace, rather than read. every. single. failure. of. their. game. they. continue. to. destroy.

They say you can't destroy through creation - yet God supposedly made a whole lot of water and successfully wiped the planet clean but for a few bits of creation. Game Developers would do well to remember "Less is More".

If you follow my twitter account, read my posts here, or read my posts on that-site-that-shall-not-be-named-but-starts-with-kugu-and-ends-with-sumen you will realize I have already touched on the majority of those subjects.

Basically, it boils down to this: Sony will never buy CCP, because CCP (while driven by the best idea game developers have had in the last century) is utterly incompetent.

Yes, but speculation is a good thing. See, alot of us have a lot of time invested in the game and it also takes a lot of time to do anything substantial in the game. So, if CCP is to be sold to the Empire many of us would like to know now so we don't waste any more time.

With that said...

CCP's 180 on MT could be seen as a clear indicator of exactly that. Adding a mechanism for MT in game certainly does make the product appear more attractive to a potential purchaser especially when said purchaser is specifically interested in games with MT. It also adds a certain amount of additional profitability to the game making it appear more attractive.

Considering the relative value of a benjamin these days, they might have to go with pounds before he gives in.

Swiss Franc actually. But they're decreasing its value because it's strength is harming their economy now from lack of exports. As for the value of benjamins, at the rate EVE Online is going benjamins might be the only thing it's worth.
