The uncle owen comment was by Lucas Arts, certainly not SoE.  I dont think SoE wanted to dump the sand out of the box at all, and even NGE still had a large amount of sandbox gameplay left in it.

LOL EQ.

 

EQ gave rise to themepark games, I'll believe it when I see it.

I know, right! Apparently "research" has shown thereare more uncle owens out there than they previously thought.

Hey Devs, just so you know. The more you give us to play with, the more we play.

7 years worth of constant criticism from ex-customers about the fact that you made a mistake tends to get people's attention.

I'd say its more like 7 years of mediocre success in the MMO market has had more to do with it.

But either way lets hope they put forth 100% effort into makeing it great, instead of half-assing it.

The company did EQ.  after that it did:

a console MMO (EQOA)

an MMOFPS (PS)

a themepark (EQ2)

a sandbox (SWG)

a kid oriented MMO (FreeRealms)

an action oriented cross platform super hero MMO (DCUO)

 

The only pure themepark SoE ever did was EQ2.  EQ and EQOA were pre-themepark games.  Level based, but not quest hub based at all and MUCH more open ended in nature.

 

Most diverse developer out there

that quote was from LucasArts - not SOE

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/10/arts/10star.html?_r=0

"We really just needed to make the game a lot more accessible to a much broader player base," said Nancy MacIntyre, the game's senior director at LucasArts. "There was lots of reading, much too much, in the game. There was a lot of wandering around learning about different abilities. We really needed to give people the experience of being Han Solo or Luke Skywalker rather than being Uncle Owen, the moisture farmer. We wanted more instant gratification: kill, get treasure, repeat. We needed to give people more of an opportunity to be a part of what they have seen in the movies rather than something they had created themselves."

Yeah guys, I know it was Nancy "Oh look, I make Leapfrogs now!" Mcintyre.

But up until very recently, that outlook has been supported by SOE in everything they've done.

 

EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

Maybe we are coming full circle...or something. Even though Meridian59 and UO were first, EQ was the mmo that put the genre on the map, and held the largest population in the west until WoW. It would be interesting if it was SoE that brought the genre in a completely new direction.

Proof will be in the pudding though, so it's a completely wait and see situation.

Reading, learning, creating something yourself... 

Well, I'm glad they got it right with SWTOR at least, none of that needless junk in there!

 

BOOM!   Headshot.

They have made ONE pure themepark.  ONE.  And that theme park was made when they already had the #1 sandbox on the market.  The only big budget game theyve done since EQ2 was DCUO, which is a ps3 game at heart.

This is awesome news.  While I am really enjoying GW2 and look forward to play it as it develops and expands. Norrath will always hold sway over my imagination. BRING ON SOME EQNEXT!!!

How many eggs do we place in Smed's Basket?

I get a funny feeling SOE had a master plan ever since they went into that NGE phase.....

SOE overtaking blizzard?..... could happen....

Starting over from scratch doesn't bode well.  This game had better be 5 years away from fruition.

 oh i wouldnt say that. A great portion of developer time is spent creating art assets and content, and of course the forgelight engine is already complete or you couldnt be in the planetside beta, and they have almost 2 years since they changed modes. Not to mention you have no idea what art assets they might of lifted from their other games and reskinned them, and features like soe emote  and entire systems from swg might be useful in creating the game.

And none believed me when I made a thread of EQ next tackling sandbox & possibly PvP to the Rumor room.

 

In your face, doubters.

 

And I ain't getting on the wagon, I'll be riding with the vanguard on a... Horse?

I might not ever play 'EQ Next' when it comes out, but I am glad to see more sandbox mmo's in the industry being developed for sure.
