Prey Sequel Plans

Game Matters, Scott Miller's blog (thanks Voodoo Extreme), in addition to the latest history lesson about how Apogee Software pioneered the shareware model, offers word that Prey has sold over a million copies, and that plans are already in place for a follow-up, saying: "There will be a sequel, and we think we have a interesting follow-up story to tell and some all-new innovations to bring new excitement to the table."

The sequel will come around end of 2008 or maybe sometime in 2009.

...with PREY taking nearly 10 years, and Duke Nukem Forever...well, FOREVER (likely never), 3D Realms IS NOT a company you can count on to deliver a game within a reasonable timeframe.

Until 300kps+ download becomes a broadband standard, gamers will ALWAYS have to contend with that.
You've got millions of people out there, who only have BASIC broadband, like 150k DSL. On the download side, they're just barely strong enough to qualify for LIVE. I've played with people whose ping was well over 800ms, which is basically a full second ; that's waaaay too long for packet delivery, for online gaming.

Up to 1.5 Mbps(downstream)
256 Kbps(upstream) thats bellsouth DSL Ultra, is that good?...everytime im in a lobby or something i have the top amount of bars, so i must have a good connection.

This was good but not great. Multiplayer sucked laged bad for only 8 players and what is with 8 player multiplayer? I pay 50 a year I want the choice of 16, 30, 60 or more.
