Whats with the MMOs craze these days ? :wtf:
Earlier today, Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick attended The Bank of America SmidCap Conference, where he went into more detail about the rejection of EA's buyout offer. During his presentation, making use of various slides (http://www.veracast.com/bas/smidcap08/main/print_slides.cfm), it came to light that the publisher under siege is considering making MMOs out of the Bioshock and Civilization franchises, as well as a possible Hollywood movie based on the former.

Ugh, hell no. Bioshock's strength was its story and presentation. No way would it translate well to the MMORPG formula.

MMORPGs make TONS of money. That's why everyone and their dog wants to make one. What everyone wants now is to make the MMORPG that will dethrone WoW. Just like all that came before it, (Ultima Online, Everquest) WoW will fall to another game and that game will become the cash cow for the next decade.

I don't see a "Bioshock" mmorpg having any more impact against WoW than any other haphazard MMO out right now. The intellectual property of an MMO plays a huge factor in it's potential success in the mainstream; gl Bioshock.

Tell that to Everquest. EQ blew Ultima Online out of the water and they made it all up from scratch.
