Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) recently announced a new multi-year partnership with ProSiebenSat.1 Games Group to license eight of its online games in Europe, including DC Universe™ Online, EverQuest® II, Star Wars®: Clone Wars Adventures™, Free Realms®, Magic: The Gathering – Tactics®, Pox Nora®, the upcoming PlanetSide® 2, and the next installment of the EverQuest® franchise.

This new partnership will enhance players’ gaming experiences by attracting new audiences into our online worlds (more players = more fun!), plus will deliver additional dedicated Community and Marketing support, and resources for providing an even more localized experience.

What this means for players is cutting of the communities from each other. Many euro players play on the us servers and vice versa to be able to connect with family and friends. We even have member of our armed forces who play to to connect with friendds and family at home, this change will end that. Not to mention ProSiebens reputation is horrid rampent with privacy violations and destroying the games we love. PLEASE stand together show SOE we do NOT want this change and it will bring the end of the games.

      The companies decide for us, we need to show them that we as the consumers will not stand for it.

      This is a load of crap. I'm paying for all my games on Sony Online's service. I've got Station Cash accumulating month-by-month... and now they're saying I lose it all due to something I didn't agree to.

      This is worse than the privacy concerns Sony itself went through. I do not approve of this, and never would have in the first place. Atlus are consolidating their games licenses... Sony, I don't have a clue what they're doing right now.

      SOE really pulled the trigger here.

      It saddens me to see this once great game go down like this. This is most inaceptable thing SOE has ever done, really EVER done. Please SOE click on brain.exe fire Smed and make this game good again.

      It is beyond the pale that an organisation can have so little disregard for those who made its products the success that they are - at a not insignificant COST! ProSieben has a well-deserved bad reputation. I'm kicking myself for having out so much MONEY into Everquest 2 that I can never back! Lord of the Rings Online doesn't have this problem. Funny that.
