viper592 found an interesting link.See here

Hence the question


So where is our fancy UO branded Gaming Laptop with KR pre-installed?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Claudia was highly amused by the discovery.



ROFL ... PWNED

PS they also got other online games packages such as Tabula Rasa

While Galen's player says

I wonder who at EA-Mythic, what hapless marketing guy, is gonna get fired just for not thinking of that first?

Prince Caspian thinks he has UO's model all sussed out.


Erm, given the level of EA's interest in this game, I think that would be one of these:

Jeremy's response was

I suspect that would come from EA itself, not our little studio.

(Besides, how would y'all feel about XPS-branded crystal balls popping up all over?)

Hrm... EA would probably come out with a Madden NFL computer. It would have every Madden game ever made (even the SNES & Genesis ones) emulated and also have up to the current generation of console/ PC technology.

Indeed,I rememnber reading a similar thread 3/4 years back,where it was suggested ,company logos such as Nike etc,were incorporated into the game.

Lets hope it never goes down that road.

Although of course it is a part of many games already

I could almost see it in games that are set in modern day, but there's something wrong somehow with the thought of a warrior throwing on a new pair of nikes to go slay a dragon :)

What if he just used a sword that looked like a Nike "swoosh" to slay the dragon?

Thanks again Maddux!

If Nike or any other major Company sponsering UO through ingame advertisements could get UO's problems fixed, then I am all for it.

It would be like the Nascar uniforms with all the endorsements..

"Boots of Nike"
"Arms of Ralph Lauren"
"American Airline Leggings"
etc..

and like the Valor suit, when you have all 8 pieces you get the special Commercial Suit.

I read this on slashdot, and they ended their story with this line, which I found quite funny:

Unfortunately for purchasers, the laptop won't boot on tuesday mornings until early afternoon, and some days you just won't be able to log in.
