Uru Not Live Yet

The Uru: Ages Beyond Myst Website has word that although the new Myst game is now available in stores, the online "live" component of the game will not go live today as planned, but rather is delayed until sometime next week (thanks Kawartha). Here's the deal:
The Uru Live Prologue has been changed to begin early next week, instead of today. The change was made to allow more Uru preorders to reach the fans, and to give people a chance to enjoy Uru: Ages Beyond Myst. The Uru Live team will take advantage of the time to ensure caverns are ready for groups of new explorers. Explorers are encouraged to do as much as they can this weekend to get their systems working well, in preparation for next week's entrance into D'ni. Be sure to watch your email for the invitation from Zandi! Hope to see you all there!

Just to clarify:

Uru: Ages Beyond Myst is 2 games. One, Uru, is a single player experience, no online required. Doesn't even require you to use the enclosed CD-Key.

The second, Uru Live, is a MMO game, with a primarily exploration / social focus. Uru Live is what has been delayed. It DOES require the CD-Key to create a unique account, which at some future time will be a billed service, though from their own descriptions that won't be until sometime early next year. THIS is what has been delayed. The game shipped to stores on time, the single player works exactly as described, but you can't access the massively multiplayer section of the game yet.

Hope this helps
