Personally I would like 2... a PVE and a PVP... I do not like areas that PVP is not allowed... two servers allow players who don't want pvp to stay away from those who enjoy pvp and the added element of gameplay.
Isn't that the same reasoning the "Zoned" PVP uses?

"different zones allow players who don't want to PVP to stay away from those who do"

I bet they will release it next year.

If they have some sense of bussiness they will do an open beta test appx. 2 months. It good for us and good for them. The players can explore the gameplay, and Cryptex has a chance to test the system under pressure, and fix the errors, bugs, etc.
Open beta test usually means it's about to go gold....

The open beta test would be cluttered with kiddies who want nothing but a free game to play... you're talking about regular beta testing, that day will come.

Open beta usually is based around stress testing the servers, login servers, etc.

At this rate, we could have an official wiki by the end of the week! :p

I have been waiting for a star trek MMO to come out for many years (since ultima online debute) since I have always been a big star trek fan. I was disapointed to hear in the podcast that it would be up to three years before release. I hope you are right that it may be next year sometime but i doubt it.

You're not being serious about a open beta in two months... Are you???

Nevermind, I won't even bother... lol

If I am playing on a PC, then I had better be able to have full hotkey support and all of the in-depth interface options of a full-blown PC-only MMO, even if the console players must make do without such features.

The way technology is advancing, within the next three years, there will likely be keyboard and mouse add-ons for all of the mainstream consoles, which will allow those player to experience the full input features.

All though it was never officially confirmed or denied, supposedly, the dumbing down of Star Wars Galaxies that occurred with the NGE was a precursor to the launching of that game on the console. The interface was simplified way down and no longer could be customized. I think that what threw a wet blanket on their plans was the fact that so many people left the game because they hated the changes. The outlook couldn't have been good for the investors whose money would have been rding on a PC-to-console port deal.

Oh SWG is much better these days, but it took them three years to get it that way, and still they have a lot of work to do.

So again... As long as the PC version of the game is not dumbed down to accomodate console players who do not have a keyboard and mouse, I'll be fine. But if it IS dumbed down in that way, I promise that I will not waste my money on it. Not to buy it and certainly not to subscribe to it.
