So you can hardly gauge the quality of it when it's not out yet.
Ever seen a trailer for a movie, before it came out, and thought, "Geez that's gonna suck."?

Same s***, different smell


Yes

No, because I only judge things based on the whole product, as opposed to a small selection from it, and I intend to do that here as well.

Not once in your life? I find that hard to believe, but nonetheless, I believe you.

Meh, I've seen trailers for movies that I said it'll suck. One trailer I said that for was Spiderman. I was wrong.

That was a horrible movie, the only one in that series to be good was the second one, the first one was horribly overrated, and just plain awful.

It didn't suck. It wasn't phenominal, but it didn't suck. The first Star Wars trailer made it look like it would suck too.

Oh and the trailer for the Crystal Skull made it look like it was going to be a great movie....

If you're talking about the first SW movie as in PM, then the trailer was correct, if ANH, then it was dead wrong.
But back then, the quality was pretty poor...


Yes

I was talking about ANH. The point is, trailers do not guarantee either a good or bad movie. Nor do pre-alpha shots indicate a good or bad game.

I never actually said that it did. Maybe I should've worded that differently

But do you believe that an MMO will be good on a console?


Yes

If it is designed specifically for the console, and only the console, it can be. If it is designed for the PC and ported to the console, doubtful it would be good. It would have to make too many compromises to be workable on both PC and console. Rather than saying it will suck though I would say chances are high that it will suck based on other attempts, but who knows, it might be good.

I think consoles will eventually become the major source of MMOs.

Oh God, I hope not, MMO's and console just don't mix, it's a law of nature.

Hopefully they want degrade in quality like they have over the last 10 years, making games simply and unintuitive enough for the console kiddos to play.
