More on Entropia UniverseJune 12, 2007
The MMO Gamer has some more interesting news on Entropia Universe including an interview with the CIO of MindArk, Marco Berhmann, who comes across as a little cagey to say the least. I’d heard that they planned to have massive concurrence, but 7 million seems incredibly optimistic!!
The interesting thing for me is that if playing Entropia Universe is so expensive in terms of real money I can’t forsee it ever having the need to hold that many players as I wouldn’t expect that many people to stick with it once they’d spent their first $100. Also I’m not sure how appealing paying real money for repairs to equipment is; will their be an option to learn a repair trade to offset some of these costs?
Well, I remain open-minded as there are lots of features that sound very interesting about this virtual world. And no, I haven’t tried it yet.
