TL:DR

"Thank you for all your money to date, but we no longer care about any of you PC users as this isn't making us enough money. In addition to this, myself and everyone else who thinks that making Blue Mars solely for iPad / iPhone is a stupid idea have been fired."

That's a great way to ensure failure of your product considering it already was in a half-dead market niche to begin with.

This may answer the question: "Is there life on Mars?" once and for all.

@Sonoran
But the more important question - "Is there INTELLIGENT life on Mars?" remains as ambiguous as ever :)

Hurray! An MMO for Apple Fanbois and vacuous mall brats to play on their iThingys. Once more its demonstrated that you don't have to have a brain on your head to sell something to the sycophantic public.

Thanks, I suppose. While I own an iPhone 4, I greatly dislike anything else Apple makes. And I don't go to the mall unless absolutely necessary, and it's filled with skanky teenaged girls looking for a boyfriend and creepy gothic kids. I'm also 24, almost 25, if that helps.

Anyway, I'm going to go enjoy my phone and it's nice platform filled with excellent applications and games, now. Oh, and if I wanted an online game on my phone, I'd fire up Pocket Legends, although the beta of Blue Mars I partook in a while back was interesting to say the least.

I won't miss it. I've seen Blue Mars during several stages of its development and it just had nothing to offer. It was just a prettier, featureless, Second Life.

Blue Mars has never been good enough to compete even with the dreadfully out of date and ugly Second Life.

rejoice applites! now not only can you sit at the coffee shop pretending to write your latest script, you can play this trash also.

I hope the pc market can recover from this blow.

After trying BlueMars a few months ago and being creeped out y the animations of my avatar... No thanks, I will stick with a certain opensim grid that is actually booming.
