A New MMOG? From Your PC to Your TV
Spending so much time at your computer, playing your favorite MMOG, that you're missing a favorite TV show? Why not combine your two hobbies? The Sci Fi Channel is working to do just that: create a television show and MMOG that work together. The perfect storm of geek-dom.
"A television show that is on once a week isn't enough. The fans today want the experience to go beyond that," Howe said. "For example, we can tell them that there will be an alien invasion at a certain place in the game, at a certain time, and to be there with all their friends and be ready. The outcome depends on them. And then that battle will be part of the universe in the show."
