I have to agree that 2,700 signatures is not going to hold a lot of sway over a multi million dollar project. They can try, but I doubt you can sue a company to force them to lose money.

Lovin all the Star Wars references in the article though.

"anger – which led to hate, which led to suffering, which led to the dark side"

"A New hope" etc.

lmao.

I wonder if someone is willing to give it the P99 treatment?

Let SWG die.  Bring on Old Republic already.

I've always said the worst part about being a Star Wars fan is other Star Wars fans. I guess that maxim needs to be extended doubly to the MMO Star Wars dweebs.

 

What part of "the contract would be running out in 2012 anyway" are they not understanding?

There are no grounds for a lawsuit.  I can't imagine they'd find a lawfirm willing to even bother with the case.  If you read the EULA, it says they can shut down game services at any time with a 30 days notice.  They gave half a year's notice which is well above the 30 day minimum.  You also don't have free speech rights on Sony's forums.  Free speech doesn't apply to private property.  If you are a guest in my home and you start swearing or breaking my rules, I have the right to tell you to leave.  This is no different.

Really? When enough money is involved I'm sure they'll take on anything.

I'm with you about there being no grounds, but I'll point out that IF this turns out to be true and they have actually filed a class-action lawsuit, then they would obviously have found a firm greedy enough to take the case.  Notice I said "greedy" and not "dumb."  It's the states dude, lawyers these days would totally eat a cock meat sandwich with a smile if they thought there would be a chance they'd make a couple mil by sueing for food poisoning after.

Ever since SOE unceremoniously killed Galaxies with the CU and the further abomination they called the NGE, Galaxies has been living on borrowed time.  Server consolidations were SOE rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.  The only question at this point is how John Smedley is still employable.
