People are missing one big point. People won't play it just because Sony is now involved. Their reputation is THAT bad that they only need to put their logo on it and people bail :P
Ditto, SOE has a bad rep from word of mouth and media focus over the past few years. I know POTB won't have strong subscription numbers, let alone how long it'll last. I feel this way about POTB and Tabula Rasa, both games wouldn't keep me interested for any longer than 2-3 months.
About the NGE comments, I bet you if WoW went to twitch based pseudo-FPS overnight they'd lose about 6 mil subscribers or more. When I played the old SWG, I was paying for the game I wanted to play but when the NGE was shoved into my SWG folder one day, I said "I'm not paying for this".
