LucasArts doing somenothing on mobile phones 10 Feb, 2009, 21:35 / 12 comments

I have no idea what this even means;
The mid-20s growth rate… projected for our direct digital business… Really what it is, it is Pogo, it is Mobile, it is MMOs, it is a series of MSGs, it is ultimately a new MMO that we are going to be launching in joint partnership with LucasArts. And so it is a series of businesses that feel like they have gotten good tailwinds that are growing, Pogo and Mobile in particular.
It's from here.

Update: Ahh, neon_git in the comments has waded through all the gobbledygook and figured that the LucasArts thing being mentioned is just the PC version of The Old Republic.

However, in actual LucasArts news, they won a Writer's Guild Award for the writing in STFU.

    The WGA award is pretty meaningless - it's for WGA members only.

    As opposed to all those meaningful industry awards out there?

    OK, so reading the transcript the quotes are pulled from it's clear this is just the star wars MMO

    "I would tell you that a major contributor to that will be our BioWare, LucasArts joint venture MMO."

    I'm interested to see what they have in mind for Pogo. Casual games can be fun, and if the game has badges it's all the more interesting to me. :)

    Aww, I guess I should have read the link first before posting. It's just EA talking about Pogo, I thought LucasArts was making a game for Pogo.

    Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures would have made a fun Pogo game.

    The increase of abbreviations used today is ridiculous. And yes, that grouping of sentences makes no sense whatsoever.

    Massively Single-player Game.

    It's like an MMO but there's nobody else there.
