A New Hope (For PC Games) 16 Dec, 2002, 07:42 / 0 comments

Star Wars Galaxies may help rejuvenate the sluggish PC market, according to an article published in USA Today. The story recognizes both The Sims Online and Galaxies as being highly anticipated products that may be a shot in the arm the neglected PC market needs to get back on track. Here's a quote:
Still, The Sims Online ($49.95 for the software; $9.99 a month for Net play), along with Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, due this spring, "have been deemed the great hope for PC gaming," says Rob Smith of PC Gamer magazine. "The hope is that The Sims Online will introduce an audience that's been unaware of or uninterested in other PC games to the rest of the market."
Ah, the PC game market... we hardly knew ye.
