Hahaha, SOE bought out + shipped off to India

Postby Xisiqomelir » Sun Dec 23, 2007 5:16 am

But TorilMUD lives on!

[quote]NEW DELHI: Zapak Digital entertainment, the online gaming company promoted by Anil Ambani-led ADAG group, is all set to buy out Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) for around $300 million (Rs 1,200 crore).

According to sources close to the development, the deal will be finalised within the next few days. Sony Online was on the block for the past two weeks and Zapak, which has been looking for acquiring international studios, is finally said to have reached a consensus over the valuation of Sony Online.

“The deal is almost through. It is in the final stages of negotiations and by next week, Zapak will have a full right to all content, owned and published by Sony Online,â€

I wonder if all the GM's will be named "Bob" "Steve" Zack", etc.

I guess quantity over quality isn't a valid business strategy.

Quality has never been a big part of online gaming from a CS perspective. It's nigh on impossible to get a GM in EQ or other large games as it is unless you send an email and wait several days. Probably won't change anything at all in the long run.

Apparently it's also a hoax according to SOE.
