More KOTOR MMO Hints

Gamasutra has word on plans for "the official unveiling of the game that's been rumored about for years" at the San Francisco offices of LucasArts on October 21, saying the invitation to the event sports the logos of both BioWare and LucasArts. This is another indicating the time is finally nigh to officially unveil the KOTOR-themed MMOG, as this report fits right in with a similar article last week in UK newspaper The Daily Star (story). They do also point out while a KOTOR MMOG is "one of the industry's worst-kept secrets," and there is some futuristic artwork on the invite, there are no Star Wars logos, so you'll still have to use the Force and trust your feelings on this one.

Why should they spend EXTRA money on the LEAST SELLING platform? What business sense does that make? NONE!

I like to believe in a balance between art and business. If publishers are only concerned with profit, they should just make MMOs and casual games, as those have the greatest potential for profit. Big single-player games cost much more to make than casual games and don't have the long-term profits of MMOs. From a purely business standpoint, it doesn't make much sense to make AAA single-player games.

If all games became MMOs and casual games, would you be irritated? Or would you simply scream "IT'S GOOD BUSINESS SENSE!!" whenever anyone shares their feelings about the depressing state of the industry?
