Watched it but don't get any sort of sting of bitter envy. A zombie MMO just doesn't appeal. Hope it works out for them though.

An online zombie survival simulation would be amazing if done properly, but I'm all set with L4D+WoW = ZombieMMO.

Hopefully it's more simulation than game, but the fact that it's console only doesn't bode well for my personal tastes.

Every article I read about this game pisses me off, because I would love to try it, if only it wasn't console only. Even if I thought the game was good enough to buy a console for, I wouldn't because I wouldn't want to, in any way, encourage developers to do more console-only MMO's. So I find myself in the sucky position of hoping that a game that sounds very interesting to me goes down in flames. Like I hope it make APB look like a raging success story.

Isnt this kind of putting the horse before the cart or counting your chickens before they hatch?Don't videos of the place they made the magic happen usually happen after it is proven that magic did happen to begin with and it was good magic?

@alucard3000 - It proves they're actually working on a console MMO. Something that several companies have claimed over the last few years yet never proved.

Plenty of people said "I'll believe it when I see it" when they heard about this one because of so many companies claimed the same thing in the past.

Believe it.

@HokieKC My point had really nothing to do with whether or not a mmo for console was being made.APB did alot of this same stuff with videos of them walking around the office showing so and so working on such and such and we all saw what happened with RTW.
And as far as console MMO's there are a couple out there DCUO being one and I think FFXI and PSO.
But hey I guess now that we saw them working that means the game will be awesome or good =p

@alucard3000 - Just off the top of my head...Epic, Bethesda, Trion Worlds, Platinum, Hi Rez, and DICE have similar videos. All very successful studios.

The MMOs you listed also are on PCs. This will be the very first console only MMO. Something many thought was never going to happen.

@HokieKC Well it will be interesting to see how they work around microsoft/xbox's policy that doesnt allow 3rd party fees/charges which from my understanding is what has held back mmo's from the console.At least that is what I read about why Champions Online stopped their xbox development and what has Kingdom Under Fire 2's xbox version swamped-of which all previous KUF's where on xbox but the developers are making the console version of it a mmo this time around and is going into beta on pc&ps3 later this year.
Maybe they plan on making it B2P like GuildWars who knows.

@alucard3000 - The payment structure issues are interesting. However, MS is the publisher so if any exceptions to rules will be made they will be made here.

@HokieKC

Wrong, Everquest Online Adventures on PS2 is the first console-only mmo. And still going today.

@(Unverified) - I forgot about that one. I suppose it's because SOE did a poor job supporting it (like many of their games).

This Undead Labs MMO will be their only game and all of their focus will go towards it.

@darkogele Better to peruse your dream and fail than to never try.

I am interested in this game.

They look like they have fun at work, and that should translate well into a good game. I hope.
