logic and guessing?

You have a game that makes money and has a solid group of faithful players who really like it. Its being ran by a company with 80 employees in the west... You are in the east where stuff is way cheaper and you own the ip...

Seems like if I was a bean counter and it was me that is what I would do. 99% of people just want the game.. they don't care about paragon. 6 months from now you relaunch with a Korean developer with 20 people and pam you go from 3% profit to 10% profit or more.

just read somewhere that Paragon had 80 employees.. yeah that will make a dent in that 7-8 million a year.

the game doesn't need 80 employees.

I suspect that NCSoft is going to reopen the game again with a smaller studio located in the east.

AO has been running for 11 years now. for the last 5 years or so they have had a small dedicated dev team of 10. now they are down to 8. which is more than enough to run a well established MMO with a decent player base. you can outsource for art assets, models etc these days pretty cost effective.

COH could easily have been run the same way and been fine for several more years. 8 million a year is more than enough to fund an established game, pay a small dev team, and pay for outsourced assets.

as for the comment below that says salaries were the issue? REALLY? one quarter could have easily paid for the salaries paid at prevailing wages in the industry and benefits.

I really don't get it. I like the metro and I like the modern yet classic lines of the new look windows 8 has. reminds me of my old Amiga days. Mixing old and new is not a bad thing. Navigation under metro is far better and it does not feel like a phone or console.

The task manager is FAR superior to windows 7 as are all the progress indicators I have seen so far. I also like the pointer and navigation layout in file explorer. wireless seems quicker to connect and more stable.. not to mention easier to use.

And did I fail to mention again that this thing is FAST. Everything is much faster with windows 8 on the same hardware I was using with windows 7. memory management, screen management, application switching, file copying.. there is literally not a single negative or weak point I have seen yet.

I'm using windows 8 right now. I think its awesome. Its really and updated windows 7 with a new user interface and its faster that greased lighting.

I'm surprised people hate it so much. I like it more and more every day. in fact going back to windows 7 and the older style start menu and controls seems dated and old to me now.

I don't have a single bad thing to say about it.

The Pi doesn't need this. I'd rather my kids learnt how to program the thing rather than how to play games. Open the source and let us learn how Minecraft runs instead. Far more educational.

oook... i dont know if its just me.... buuut... it looks like you didn't read the article at all. like.. not even one word of it. because the main point of the article is that this will help people learn to program.

people.. kids.. generally learn better when they are engaged in something that is visual and fun.

jdreyer,

Demonstrate why single payer is better?

Demonstrate that "Global warming" has anything significant to do with man.

Man could shut down every factory on earth today and never drive a single car again and the earth would continue to warm for the foreseeable future. Why? because it is being driven by solar cycles and magnetism both local and interstellar.

Anyone who takes the time to read the actual history of the warming and cooling cycles of the earth and compare with the known data will see instantly that the man made global warming claim is hogwash. Clearly we are having some effect, but its only a minor influence on the Natural cycles.

The USA will be just like Brittan and perhaps even worse within 10 years. so enjoy what freedom you have while you can. Or didn't you notice they have installed cameras on every corner of every major street even in very rural areas.

also i think the android version of minecraft that costs 6.99 has sold well over a million copies. i think it is something like 3 million or there about. the IOS version is probably at least that if not more.

That is some serious bling for minecraft.

this makes no sense at all and is not a game nor is curiosity a game.

its just plain weird.

it doesn't take a team of developers to make a cube that you tap at or a tug of war game. its totally silly. this guy has lost his mind.

yeah, Tumbler i can kind of see your point. It is strange. anyone who helps them make the game, even at a 10$ price point should get the game period. since they are clearly looking at releasing this thing later via Steam and probably retail and making even more money.

pretty shaky stuff imo.

leave it to blues posters to make idiotic comments like some in this thread have... with a game description like this from the article?

"What is clear, however, is that this is a project of considerable ambition, which brings together the principles of player-creation, multiplayer and resource-gathering that established Minecraft’s success, and pitches that into an Elite-style space-game. "

simple workable graphics are going to be perfect for this game. I think this game will make many more millions of dollars for Notch.

one hit wonder my ass.

Its completely obvious why this probably is TRUE.

Valve is thinking of getting into the console business. Merging with a company like Nexon would open the floodgates to the asian markets and give them a huge in on Korean/Chinese style games and content.

It is possible a move like this would catapult them past Sony/Microsoft in the console/game market by bypassing japan completely.
