I will say this. I cannot say too much, but I will hint towards the truth. The reason for the change of heart is not the outcry of lack of release in other countries. Rather, the world wide launch would mean more people would buy it before they hear the reviews that will come out shortly after release (or the NDA is lifted). That is all what I am going to say. Oo
Peeps like labels... so ya, some sales will suffer, because every single massive that comes out is just a wow clone...
Not to me though... I didn't start gaming with WoW, and I know what the word genre means... so no biggie : )
As for SWTOR, it wasn't on my radar... I had very little interest (not a SW fan; watched each movie once), but I am enjoying this weekend's beta...
It definitely feels like a merging of MMORPG and Bioware... Which for some will be great, and others shite... Just like every other game : )
I'm not totally sold on getting it yet, but if a few friends/co-workers get started in there, I'll like pick it up, and some of them are raving about it, so that seems likely : )
For some background, I love massives... but I haven't played any for about 6 months... Just nothing out I felt like putting the time into... And I have never played SWG, nor even seen a gameplay clip (that's how little SW games have pulled me in : ).
I will likely post some specifics when the NDA is lifted...
