Am I the only one who never gave the original announcement more than a passing glance?

What Bungie's doing in the MMO scene really doesn't effect me, since I'm not sure I particularly want to play an MMOFPS with a community that will, most likely, be full of unbearable FPS players.

What I am *far more* interested in is Reach for my PC.

I love me some Halo.

Hmm your post is highly confusing, you say you dont want to play a game that's community will most likely be full of unbearable FPS players but go on and say you love playing a game that's community is full of unbearable FPS players.Interesting...:)

I wasn't aware that Halo Reach was a fully online, subscription-based game where I was constantly interacting with FPS fans.

My apologies.

@Dril well you might see a bit more chat in a MMO than say a FPS lobby based game but not much IMO unless you spend more time sitting in the lobby than actually playing the games( but if its a game like Combat Arms the lobby even has a chat channel so..).And in all the "fully online, subscription-based games" that I haveplayed I was only constantly interacting with other players when I chose too.
And I find it funny how you say "FPS fans" like its a bad thing yet say you "love" one of the biggest FPS games on the market, that would make you a "FPS fan" in my book. =P

@alucard3000 unless you are saying the only part of Halo you like and play are the single player campaigns then I do apologize and disregard all of my comments. :)

Am I the only person who remembers how Bungie denied working on Halo 3 even after Microsoft announced it?

And what are the chances that this outing of the "joke" as a "joke" is in fact a desperate attempt at salvaging the secret for the eventual unveiling of a Bungie sci-fi mmo which may or may not be happening, at which point this "joke hoax clear up" will itself be referred to as a "joke"?

@Revolting

That was exactly my impression as well: that admitting it was all a hoax is *in itself* a hoax. Now lets see if anyone believes the admission of the hoax is true, because if they believe it then they just got hoaxed for real this time!

(looks around) Yep! Everyone believes it was just a hoax. Boy are they going to feel stupid when Bungie actually DOES release the mmo they're working on but were trying to keep under wraps.

Or it could always be the old "Hoax-within-a-Hoax-wrapped-up-in-a-Hoax-with-Hoax-Sauce-on-top-and-a-side-of-Tiger-Woods-Adonis-DNA-blood".

I've never cared for this any of these announcements and have always thought "simple FPS in MMO lobby" at most.

Different people have different definitions of a MMoRPG. There are even people who think Minecraft is somehow massive.

Maybe the new title Bungie is working on do not fit their definition of a MMo. Or maybe Bungie is not yet ready to reveal specifics of their new title, so they're just denying everything now.

Bungie is like the third developer that has done something like this...just makes them seem less credible to me for some reason.

They're really getting the media into a frenzy, and they probably love it.
