Excellent! Thanks for the heads up!  The other emu project I'm
following is COAD but I'm starting to think these guys lack the
werewithal to really come through.

If Sony is wise they'll react with the same attitude of watchful but
benign neglect.  People are buying UO boxes simply to play the
emus... some revenue is still better than none, and there are an
interesting number of people who go on to pay the subscribership to
see what it's like to have a community of a few thousand with
professional support/events.

Central MOG publishers have badly interpreted this trend and are
missing a fantastic opportunity to widen the headwaters of their
revenue stream.
