If you guys have any questions, shoot them out and I'll do my best to answer. Here's some of the obvious ones:

- No subscription.
- Cooperative, competitive and social gameplay.
- Bungie insisted on consoles only. No PC.
- Always online.
- Time traveling robots.

Really interested to see how a console-centered MMO is going to turn out. I'm going to be looking forward to E3 so I can get my jollies on.

Is the gallery working? I tried to look at the pics from home and from the office, but it just keeps telling me it can't find the webpage.

uxnhoj123 Hm. Working here, but it's been known to have some problems in the past. Here's another source: http://bit.ly/12W4ACv

So this game isn't really for people who prefer single player experiences?

So it's basically Bungie's version of Planetside 2?

By the looks of it, this is 100% accurate.

No PC? I'm going to have to pass. MMOs on consoles, and especially Shooter-RPGs feel so limited. Phantasy Star Online was about the only one I cared for, and that was mostly because of when it came out and the fact that it didn't use aiming as a mechanic.
There's a possibility I'd try it for PS3 if it received good feedback, but it's unlikely. They are missing out on a pretty large market excluding PC, home of the MMO genre =/

Existence LOD-squa Hmm. They didn't really go into single-player this time in the same way they didn't go into competitive multiplayer. Considering we know the scale of their competitive multiplayer will likely be huge, it's difficult to tell if the single-player omission means there is none, or they just haven't talked about it yet.

We do know, however, that they are heavily pushing the idea of "personal story". What I believe is being conveyed by this is sort of how the original Guild Wars was designed. Where sure, the hub worlds and cities were "multiplayer" but a majority of the content was entirely playable alone.

Of course, the way they mention "drop-in co-op" where you can be doing a mission and some random dude can then join who is in the same part of the mission your are might change that.

bluexy, Yikes how can they say with a straight face that keyboard & mouse is something on the way out? I get that consoles are super popular these days so the majority of games are made with a controller in mind, but they still work well with a keyboard & mouse and gamers still use that method. It sounds to me that they are looking for excuses not to put this game on PC. What they should do is come out with it and say "we don't believe we'll sell enough copies on PC to warrant a PC port", I'd rather honesty than PR bullshit that just makes Jason Jones of Bungie look like a twat.

BlackLabel I will always prefer keyboard and mouse, but at the same time I can see how modern shooters are made for controllers and when you force them to use keyboard and mouse, they feel much worse. I wouldn't want them to port it to PC if it's meant to be played with controller.
