Hmmm, well I haven't read that anywhere online or in GI. I keep hearing developers are having a hard time making the ports. I can't see why there would be a subscription issue, since you pay for Xbox Live anyway. Why people would pay both Xbox Live and a subscription for a game doesn't make much sense.

Edit - Looks like they do have an MMO for the 360, right now it's in Japan only (a Monster Hunter game). They are forcing people to pay 1400 yen on top of the Xbox Live service to play the game. Didn't see anything that says the game won't or will make it stateside anytime soon. Seems as though they're using Japan as a test market.

Quoted from OXM #106, Feb. 2010, pg.89.

..."The 360 has the hardware punch and the online infrastructure. The problem, as the stories continue to go, is political. Specifically, Microsoft is rumored to want a slice of each game's monthly service fee- in addition to the cut of every boxed copy sold that they already get..."


Yeah, i don't really understand the whole "monthly service fee" thing either. If they're gonna charge a subscription fee ON TOP OF what you already pay for XBL, never mind...

You play a lot of NBA 2K10, a timed game. I think you're getting senile in your old age.

Oh yeah? Haven't read anywhere that said they were going to Vietnam for the game officially. Of course the rumors have been flying, but if it was true public knowledge, it would have been on wikipedia months ago. I also think it's funny how you always try to knock what I do.

fair point. but there's a different to me when it's simply timed quarters in a game, opposed to having 30 seconds to get from point A to point B when I prefer to take my time and enjoy the environment in a game, opposed to rushing through it.

I didn't know it wasn't officially announced? I remember reading it on IGN months ago. I thought it was official.

The "rumors" around the next CoD being set in Nam have been there since a few days after the release of MW2. And I say "rumors" because the info was legit and cofirmed but Activision hadnt made an "official" release yet. WaW completely redeemed Treyarch as far as single player goes and theyve alwayd had solid multiplayer, so Im fucking pumped for what Treyarch can deliver next.

Anyone playing the new AvP and have any thoughts? Ive heard nothing but bad news. The multiplayer is supposed to be where this game is at yet since the three campaigns are the same repetitive nonsense for about 4 hours each. Ive heard the controls for multiplayer (mainly Aliens) are simply horrible.
