If Dark and Light can pull off what they are attempting there will be a lot of happy gamers. Matthew Rorie of GameSpot gives his impressions of Dark and Light as seen at E3. Here is brief snippet from the article: "First off, the theme behind Dark and Light seems to be one of scale: the cluster technology used by Dark and Light supposedly allows for up to 500,000 players playing concurrently on the same server; the gameworld is 15,000 square kilometers in size; and the view distance lets you see up to 30 miles away. We only managed to see a small portion of this during our demo, obviously because of its huge size, although it does appear that some of these zones are already well-populated, presumably with beta testers. There are 12 realms in total, with two of those being starter areas, and the other 10 being PvP oriented." The article (about seven paragraphs long) can be read here.
