Oh gosh I hope gaming doesn't go religious on us. I mean what is an Arabian MMO going to consist of? I hope not anything prejudice. I'm not sure about this project.

I'm sure it'll be fine. The Arabian business world seems to be quite modern, hence why it is open to the idea of generating games aimed at Arabian players.

Well there was some games made for a middle east country not to long ago that was extremely offensive and pretty much consisted of killing every race other then themselves.

However I hope this deal wouldn't result in such and I doubt it would seeing as they have the involvement of a US company on board.

Well, it also has governmental involvement in that the company are backed by the Abu Dhabi government.

Who cares, I know I never play MMO's. Especially Arabic MMO's.

Yea plus it'll be costly I'm sure, oh well at least it's only staying in that region so we don't have much to worry about.

It could lead to some significant steps in the Arab world though for gaming. I can imagine that the money would be very appealing for developers. We may see some new studios crop up if this is successful.

will they make a game out of eveything. I want a game aimed at white english people now, the same thing when you think about it

Most of the current MMOs are aimed towards Western and Eastern markets. I think it's fair.

Good to know there are a lot of Arabs out there playing video games. Hopefully this'll halt the stigma of Arabs not being big video game players.

I hope Arabs get more involved at gaming & more skilled at developing as years go by, as well as other countries. It's a good thing to share the love of video games with every part of the world, games might bring the world together :D

Hehe, that's a good point! Bubble for your optimism.
