I must admit, I had ZERO interest in this game until I saw it at PAX. Its just FUN. I am now excited about this.

I am pretty frustrated I didn't make it into the beta. A little bummed its third person instead of first-person, but it still interests me a little.

This game is NOT an MMO! How can it be? It's fun, for chrissakes!

Played the beta... it is essentially GTA, with horrendously bad vehicle controls and wonky combat. With tweaks and fixes it could be better, but why pay a monthly fee for a blatant copy of GTA. As for the "Highly Anticipated MMO of 2010" mention... I seriously DOUBT that.

What sucks about this post is that NeuroMan42 didn't like the game, so when they take him out of the beta program he won't care, but people who did like the game can't refute the comment because they don't want to break the NDA.

At any rate, what game can't do with a few tweaks and fixes? As for why someone would pay for a blatant copy of GTA, how about why wouldn't someone? You could do worse than turning GTA into an MMO.

"APB won't require a subscription commitment, nor will it rely on traditional micro-transaction offerings."

How can it be a GTA ripoff, when GTA was created by the owner of Realtime Worlds and Creative Director of APB?

Ripoff? Hardly. Extension of a previous creation? Perhaps.

I got into the beta and then it didn't work on my computer, so annoyed as it looks like a fantastic game, hope all these different systems work well and it isn't just a game for supercomputer systems

I have loads of interest in this game. This hands on only makes me want it more. Im very interested in what the business model could be.

Good read, Schuster. =)
