Gamer has a QNA with Turbine about the soon to be released title Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach.
Don't you think that we're on the verge of entering another MMO games overflow? How many more games do you think that the market can sustain before it implodes?
Not really. The only major subscription MMO released since the since the end of 2004 was City of Villains, and it's not even a fantasy game.
I think some players will always feel that there's a game overflow, but that's just because they're good games out there these days. No one, not even the unemployed college student, can play them all. At the same time, no entertainment industry ever lost its way by providing good choices to the customer. As new games continue to grow the MMO marketplace, it will have room for more games, not fewer.
And folks... You can also read it in Hebrew. It just doesn't get any better than this.
