Will Star Trek Online trump WoW?

Latest race-creating demo from Comic Con prompts Klingon hype...

The latest news on the Star Trek Online MMO due from Atari-owned Cryptic Studios later this year is that players will be able to create an entire race, going by the latest demos of the game given at Comic Con in New York.

The hype surrounding the game and the excitement of Trekkies worldwide about being able to finally live their Klingon dreams is to be expected. But might Star Trek Online finally be the online game to knock Blizzard's mighty World of Warcraft off its MMO-throne?

"The crossover between Star Trek fans and MMO gamers is obvious, but the same could be said about Star Wars and Lord of the Rings - two massive licenses whose MMOs failed to knock World of Warcraft from the top spot," opines PC Zone's Deputy Editor, Steve Hogarty.

"Star Trek's certainly a huge name, and it'll make for an interesting MMO at the very least, but the fanbase is massively discerning and just as likely to crucify the game as adore it," adds Hogarty.

Who cares. If it's a good game with a stable fan base it doesn't have to be a wow killer. I hope this game lasts though, because there would literally be no limit to what they could do.

You're going to see any pay MMOs dropping in subscriptions / users as people are less able to afford it. Not a good time to be releasing a $60 dollar game with additional costs added on.

I'm not a WoW fan myself, but I know how popular the game is, and I doubt that many WoW gamers will switch games anytime soon.

as if world of warcraft leaves no room for any other MMO games.
my first thought is: It might. but thier last sentence was its already dead in the water. oh okay then why ask?

fckn retards, if its good it will keep its fans happy. but dam, give it a chance. my god, does every weak website have thier model of a perfect game or do they only go by what sells best? why am i here? oh yeah im taking a pen & paper and scrathing names of websites that do not relate off my list.
