Under the heading "Mark Your Calendar", the latest gametap email is listing 02-08 as the official migration date for Uru from beta to....whatever...gamma--the real deal. :D

Gametap has jumped the gun in the past. Is everyone on the same page for this February 8th thing?

That's exactly what a conspirator would say. I'm on to you...

The actual quote from the Gametap e-mail is:

Quote:
MARK YOUR CALENDAR
2/08
There's cause for celebration as GameTap Original, Myst Online: Uru Live, emerges from its beta state to finished product.


May the celebration begin :)

Marten asked me to provide links when I posted this on the DRC site, so here's the whole post over again, with links and a couple extra tidbits:

Yet another well-timed event:

Interesting bit of trivia:

MOUL's launch date is almost exactly 3 years from the day that the original Prologue beta test under Ubisoft was shut down. (That occured on Feb. 9th, 2004. The new launch date is Feb. 8th, 2007.)

That's right! I noted other little coincidences just like this which are dates that conclude a full year (year(s) minus one day):

1. Laxman's reemergence with a DRCsite post in 2005 (12/21/05) to GameTap introduction of Preview (open beta, 12/20/06).
http://www.drcsite.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=99 (Laxman post)

2. Explorer request for DRC representatives (1/18/06) to resignation of remaining Liaisons (1/17/07).
http://www.drcsite.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=184 (request)
http://www.drcsite.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1683 (resignation)

3. Ubisoft cancels Uru Live (2/9/2004) to GameTap reopening Uru Live (2/8/2007). (It's very difficult to not interpret this as a /taunt at Ubisoft, but I reluctantly suppose it could just be pure sentiment).

Does RAWA also collect (or, dare we think it, manipulate) these stats?

What's next?

12-21 to 12-20...? 2-9 to 2-8...?

Then explain if you will...

:shock:

A day isn't missing...isn't it 365 days...wouldn't the 21st be the first day of the third year...2-9 the first day of 4 years?? I'm confused :shock:

Right. The year is concluded at the end of the day prior to its anniversary. It you actually have a time of day, it concludes at the moment before the anniversary time. ;)

I'm excited about going Live, :D but also sad if that means we'll lose some of our International friends. :cry:

Speaking of Gametap and their marketing department - I saw a Gametap ad on TV the other night and it mentioned Uru Live. I smiled.

Actually they made a correction

Regrettably we published an incorrect date in the "Mark Your Calendar" section. The correct date for launch of Myst Online: Uru Live is 2/15

I just got a correction email from GameTap saying that the Mark your calendar date was wrong, it is in fact now going to launch on the 15th of Feb.
