Okay. I own a PS3. And while it certainly has the power to run a good mmo game, there just isn't anything out there. DC Universe Online is a pathetic excuse for an mmo, as is the kid version from Sony "Free Realms".
Even the PS2 had a pretty good MMO in Everquest Adventures and if only they made a game like that but with the beefed up graphics and power that the PS3 could certainly give it, many console owners would be happy and gobble up that game like a horde of hungry zombies on a fallen horse.
* So, we've heard this way back in the middle of 2008:
"Turbine will announce console MMO projects "early next year"
( http://www.vgreleases.com/News-227519.aspx )
* In September of 2009, Turbine supposedly announced that this mmo game had already been in production for over 18 months and had exceeded 20 millions in costs. - That would mean that they started work on this game in early 2008.
( http://gamersyndrome.com/2009/video-games/turbine-announces-new-console-mmo/ )
* In June of 2010, We heard rumblings that Turbine had contracted the hot publisher Twisted Pixels for their mmo, but that this mmo was still "top secret".

* And in June of 2011, supposedly well over 3 years into production Turbine is hiring for a console game engineer. The project has also been named "Project Hendrix" but still nobody seems to know even the basic theme of what this mmo is, much less a screenshot or video glimpse.

So about once a year since 2008, we've heard some tiny little tidbit or tease about this console mmorpg in production from Turbine. Is it just me, or does it seem like that might want to speed this up just a little with almost four years now into the project and rumblings of the new consoles (Xbox 720/PS4) coming out?
Trust me on a console like the PS3 and Xbox 360 where a good mmorpg just doesn't exist, there are plenty of fans starving for a good mmo. If you doubt that RPG fans exist on the consoles, wait until Skyrim launches soon and take a peek at it's console sales numbers for that game alone, hehe. So it would be expected that a good, or even decent fantasy MMO would be like a goldmine on today's consoles which are currently way over-flooded with online shooters and barren of any good online mmo sword wielding virtual realms.
Taking that into consideration, that Turbine could have a goldmine on its hands with the release of this "still top secret mmo"... Why are they dragging their feet on this and taking so long to at least give us all a hint or teaser of what we might expect? And the bigger question is.. Will this game ever even see the light of day considering how long it's been in production and how little they've given to the public?
