im new here so dont kill me if this question is out of place but what is the possibility of ea realeasing mco in the future when the game is extremely obsolete i would think you could get the code and rights for chicken feed but i know nothing and maby one of you would what good is the game to them the code sits on a disc on a shelf somewhere if there were so few users whats the competitive risk to ea

um second question my favorite part of mco was the auctions both parts and cars thats how i made my money on that game :lol: whats the possibility of that format being introduced into another game

For the first question, it has been hashed out many times in the past two years that EA had a HUGE amount of money into MCO, and an equally large sum was offered right before close to buy the rights/servers, by trouble and a few private investors. We're talking in the $2M range. EA said no. As far as I know, they have not changed their stance, and it's their property.

As for the second question, take a gander at this thread:

You'll see we've done a lot more hashing on that as well :mrgreen:


Oh yea, welcome to the 'bus :D

Actually, I believe it was Yikes that made that offer.

Yup, that's it. Trouble popped into my head first.
