Earlier this morning, MCV reported that MMO All Points Bulletin was slated to hit store shelves in March. Interestingly, the report stated the game was to be distributed through EA Partners for both the PC and the Xbox 360. The latter platform we hadn’t the slightest clue about. And it looks like there’s a reason.

Speaking with me via e-mail, Realtime Worlds community manager Chris Collins didn’t confirm the reported date. Instead, I received the boilerplate response EA sent out to outlets that inquired about the rumored release date.

“Realtime Worlds have only ever announced a Q1 2010 launch window. Any other dates you may see are either assumptions or speculations based on this.”

That leaves the Xbox 360 version. Joystiq spoke with an EA representative this afternoon and was told, “there are currently no plans for a 360 version.”

The lack of an Xbox 360 version makes sense. The pricing model for MMOs over Xbox LIVE must still be a sore spot with studios. Notice that we haven’t heard about Turbine’s console MMO (psst: it’s LOTRO) or even seen the confirmed Xbox 360 version of Champion’s Online. Final Fantasy XI looks like a freak within this frame.

We’ll keep digging. Realtime Worlds has been mum on many things APB, but we’re still excited about the prospects of rolling GTA-style with our homies in an MMO.Word.

As a casual MMO player, I've always liked the Guild Wars series -- no monthly subscription fits my lifestyle, you know? I don't have to feel guilty about wasting money by not playing "enough," whatever that is. If you're of a...more

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.5)

Final Fantasy XIV has come a long way. Although there wasn't any real endgame content to speak of when A Realm Reborn launched in its 2.0 incarnation, Square Enix worked hard to deliver in 2.1, and has continued to deliv...more

Surprise! Elder Scrolls Online is dropping the fee for existing subscribers, console version dated

When I reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online back at launch I thought it had potential, but not enough to keep people paying for subscription time. Plenty of MMOs have enjoyed a subscription-based model, and games like ...more
