LEGO Universe to Close

LEGO Universe will close its blocky plastic doors as of January 31, 2012, reports Gamasutra, which is just 15 months after launch (though it seems this is not yet note on the website of the toy-based MMORPG). They have a statement form the LEGO Group explaining: "In spite of very positive player feedback and a large number of players in the free play zone, it has not been possible to convert a satisfactory number of players to paying subscribers." Oddly, a welcome back weekend is now underway for former players of the game.

Well the idea of the Lego MMO is fine. One of the main problems is everybody who would actually want a Lego MMO, are playing on Minecraft, solo or servers.

Granted it lacks the polish of the Lego MMO. But you pay the entry fee to Minecraft and you unlock all the server's and you can download a whole bunch of interesting mods.

I think the Lego MMO missed the idea of KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid. Which is where Minecraft and the couple games like it, excel.
