Analysis: Has the definition of MMO changed?

Traditionally, MMOs featured thousands of players. Sean Knight wonders whether the definition needs redefining now that EA is calling SimCity an MMO. (Activision Blizzard Inc., Blizzard, Diablo III, EA, PC, SimCity)

I think the term "mmo" has changed and as online in games becomes more dominate we will see more and more games that blur the line of what we once defined as an MMO. Bungi's next game I think will be a good example of this.
