    Lol, yep. I remember those. In Ultima IX: Ascension, the computer in the Avatar's Earth house had an advertisement for UO 2 on it. I remember everyone asking if they could copy their UO characters over to UO 2, and being told no, because they had two totally different character systems.
    Funny thing is, UO 2 probably would've murdered EQ in it's cradle, allowing EA to shape the future of the MMORPG genre. Imagine how much different MMOs would be today then. Probably alot different.

    I agree but that would have required a visionary leader and EA has none of those.

    Couple other nice finds up there by Lorddog and Rico.. anyone else have any?

    I wonder if EA feels like the salesgirl in "Pretty Woman"?

    Big mistake.. Huge. oh well hindsight is 20/20.

    Yep. EA already had a pretty horrid reputation, so the future of MMOs wouldn't exactly be better off if EA had released UO 2 and influenced the development of further 3D MMOs.
