Motor City Offline

The Motor City Online Website has news that this massively multiplayer car collecting and racing game is gearing down their service, and will cease operations as of August 29. There is a Team Comment on this topic that explains how the game's wrap-up will unfold, how billing will operate, and the reasons for this move, saying basically the game was "losing steam" (missing the obvious gas analogy). Electronic Arts is offering subscribers a free copy of either The Sims Online or Ultima Online, provided they accept the offer prior to the end of MCO billing.

....Majesty. Does anyone remember that one? It sounded so cool and ambitious when it was announced until I read the EA part..then it was obvious it was going to hell. Hope another, accomplished developed (Microsoft or Sony) pick up on the idea, its a really original concept. The whole idea of a game that involves the user into a world with them recieving faxes and phone calls and the like.

Oh well, I bet the EA execs are wondering what happened to the MILLIONS they invested into online gaming ("the next big thing") and have now lost.
