No seriously, what if?

 

 

If you think about it...it would be one hell of a marketing strategy.

Anyone who follows MMORPGS will likely watch the reveal on the 2nd of August and if at this reveal they announce that it will be in stores the 6th they will likely have a very HUGE turnout in box sales because of this hype they've been building for months and months.

I think if they indeed release the game on Aug 6th it would be probably the most brilliant marketing strategy ever. People will impulse buy on the hype alone.

Also, SOE did say in the black box video "The Black Box Opens August 6th" Maybe the EQN box is black, and they're making a reference to it being OPENED by us on the 6th! The 6th is after all a Tuesday and most new releases come out then.

 

Wrong or Right, The anticipation for this game is killing me!!! Is it just me or is this last week going by so insanely slow!

Its possible but, box sales?

Do we not know for certain that this is going to be a free game?

Either way, if it releases on the 6th i'll be playing it then or as soon as i can.  I'll be there to ride the hype train all the way to its destination, whether that is wow-killer ultimate success savior of the genre town or just a brick wall that it splatters into.

I thought it won't be subscription based, and thus free. But like GW2 you've gotta buy the box.

 

 

maybe i'm wrong?

If it does release on the 6th, there will be some heavy traffic on those servers.

There's a PAX East interview with Dave (also Brasse) and he said that it would be F2P like the other SoE games.  I'll also be a crash test dummy if it releases on the 6th and will be ecstatic.

Well, in the sense of server stress, it'd be a smart move.  Less people would be slamming the servers with such short notice.  But, in the marketing department, it'd be a big snafu.  And, I am sure it would enrage alot of people who missed the release/launch date because they had no warning.

Pros and Cons-wise it'd be downright foolish(from my point of view).  I wouldn't be surprised to see an instant beta storm right after SOE Live though.

I wouldn´t buy the game without testing it.

We haven´t even seen the game yet...

They are not going to make me buy vaporwear in 2 trailers...not in a MMO.

If they are launching August 6th they better start their marketing machine NOW!

:D

What if?

I can tell you what will happen...

A lot of people will call in sick to work, camp the download page and hang out on the forums complaining about the download site crashing every 10 seconds. Then there will be panic on the forums as the servers dump every 5 minutes, with each post getting more aggressive as the day drags on and people caffeine levels start to reach critical. Across the globe several hundred keyboards will be smashed in fits of rage, children will go hungry because mommy/daddy is unwilling to move from the desk because the second they do, the login page will come back up for a several second window before crashing again. People will be lining up in emergency rooms across the US with head trauma due to slamming their heads on their keyboards out of aggravation. Others will be there with concussions due to gaming mice being turned into projectiles as loved ones went into fits of rage due to the server dropping them in the middle of a fight...

Economies will collapse...

Wars will break out...

Millions will perish...

Civilization as we know it will cease to be.

 

 

In all seriousness though, It would be pretty cool if they launched on the 6th. Seeing as they are doing F2P, they wouldn't have to actually sell any boxes and could theoretically do it. Hopefully they give us a launch date on 8/2. And hopefully they are prepared as best as they can be for their launch.

There are 3 types of people in the world.
1.) Those who make things happen
2.) Those who watch things happen
3.) And those who wonder "What the %#*& just happened?!"

It would be great. That way you PC gamers can beta test the game for me before the polished game launches on PS4 day one. =)

Wow that would be awesome to see the game available on the 6th, but no way in hell.

There is so much hype left in the tank, collectors editions to bait in front of us.  Don't expect anything before Nov./Dec.

No way could it be Aug 6th, lets not forget that all the hype has been blind speculation, who knows how many hyped right now will not like the actual game when it is revealed on the 2nd, and of those how many will need months of trailers, screenshots, gameplay footage, dev diaries and feature lists before they are sold, look how long it is taking to win people over to ESO or W*.

 

SOE know they have a risky product, saying its sandbox could mean many different things, certain definitions do not match what a lot of fans clearly want, and outside of old-school-ers a lot of themeparkers will need to be convinced.

 

Launching with limited warning is not a guarantee of a low pop at launch that they can comfortably build up, word gets around fast and they cannot predict how many will try to log on as there is no price barrier.

I have a large box of straws beside me.  Would you like to grab for another handful?

 

I'm pretty sure the reference is to Beta.  It has been talked about before.

It won't be in August, I can guarantee that. If anything, it will closer to the holidays. I know we all are excited about it, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves with speculations. The Black box might tell us an actual planned date or planned beta. Why don't we just wait and see what surprises they have in store? :)

"Players will have to wait a bit longer to try it themselves, but maybe not as long as you'd expect. 'Players will get their hands on an actual release version of what we're doing late [this] year - and I don't mean a beta,' says Smedley."

This has been discussed ad nauseum in multiple threads.  Again, speculation based on cryptic messages.

You think the idea that players will get their hands on a release version this year is cryptic? What about that is cryptic?

The biased, hype-driving person saying it ;)

Well, it may not sound "cryptic" but it certainly isn't a confirmation, either.  And, he said that quite a while back, and we all know how often MMOs get delayed and pushed back, in addition.

So, it's suspect in several ways.  The guy is clearly passionate about getting it out there, but his excitement and in-mind goal date don't mean it'll actually happen.

So what's "confirmation" to you if not the president of the company saying it's going to happen?
