EVE to be released (again) in retail next year - Box Cover

During today's World Domination presentation, Hilmar explained that CCP Games had partnered with Atari to release EVE Online in retail again. The photo of the cover box (as of today) is shown below. They decided to do this because they've noticed that a lot of players new to MMORPGs are introduced to these games through retail. With the recent retail success of Age of Conan and War Hammer, who can blame them for trying.

As such, and looking to bring in more players to the game, a retail DVD box will be released next year. The two pirates sitting behind me during the presentation kept giggling at the thought of all these newbies they'd have a chance to rip through!

There's a perverted thought currently being debated within the confine of my brain to get that new retail version, or not.

I know, that's so fanboy, but eh, I can't help it! :p

oh man I tried to add something to my coment and it just deleted but did not go away, oh well

I wonder why they did not put someone walking in a station on the box.

Then I wanted to add that the picture of someone walking in a station and the explanation will probably be on the back of the box.

but whatever maybe the box will come out before ambulation but I would think they would do it along with ambulation?

Looks really nice artwork though, much better then the 1st one I guess.

Hmmm, I wonder if my 2003 original CD package, including manual, is worth anything? :P

I'd by one. I doubt I'll ever see one over here, but if I do, I'll let you know when I pick it up!

hehe now I don't know if Erbo and I will, but all we can say is we'll see when it comes out.

Like a few of you out there, don't really need it, but it would be just down right awesome I think :).

Ugh... the banner at the top... Why, when there are clients for all of the Big Three operating systems? Surely a "Runs on Windows, Mac and Linux" would pull in more customers?

Its Granny bait. The game is unplayable with the current number of players. More players just means more lag.

This is a game that will make you cry.

@Aramis - Well there's quarter million players that would disagree with you on that mate. But eh, it's a free world and you're entitled to your opinion. Cheers and thanks for dropping by! CK
