Starship Troopers is the most hilarious movie i've ever seen in my life.

back to topic.

it's great that NCsoft signed a few deals with Sony. City of Heroes, City of Villains, Guild Wars, etc. they make great MMO's and if there is indeed a Starship Troopers style MMO coming to PS3 from them, i'd buy it and pay monthly to play it.

Yeah you right. Even though only artworks have been released at this point:

They do really looking interesting. It is somewhat similar to the upcoming Star Wars game. Well hope we get to hear more about this at GDC

not hard to believe really M$ shafted Xbox owners and forced them to buy a 360 and now they're forcing even more people to buy a 720 which means, just like they did with the Xbox, they'll drop support on 360. Sony consoles are future proof. look at the PS2. launched before the GameCube and the Xbox and it's still living on.

ps2 is very profitable i doubt sony would have continued support if it wasnt profitable xbox and game cube werent so profitable. I still strongly believe that not only does sony have everything it takes to win the generation of consoles(wii included) i believe it will. They just need to get their act to gether with all the delays with games, and quality of games being worse on ps3 e.t.c. They have the best line up in 2008 and it looks like nc soft might be trying to add something to that line up. Home needs to get released asap i believe it can draw potential customers not necessarily a system seller on its own but all these things added together will show ps3 as the dominant platform. Essentially everyone now says its xbox live that keeps them with xbox i stopped paying for gold membership a while back but i have to admit in this regard the 360 is significantly superior to the ps3. In fact software wise it was just a better designed console the live blades and the windows media extender as well as the ability to stream music and all is all done so much better on the xbox however with the release of home they can topple xbox live and all they need is an update for some kind of media player to arrange music and videos nicely and obviously and in game xmb update and they are good to go.

for NCsoft`s titles to start coming out.

FREE MMOs are a GREAT idea for consoles.

meh.... rumours never seem to come true.

It seems that Microsoft wants to release a 720 before they are miserably beaten everywhere. I bet the 360 sheep will buy it immediately and buy even more games than before since that is all they have to spend their money in.
