Well, many people thought it was coming, since IS bought out DMB and never actually advertised or promoted DMB. They are moving to an all on-line model. They say they will still release season disks for DMB V9 for the foreseeable future, but only as long as it makes sense.
This isn’t really baseball news, but a lot of Primates are DMB players/owners/lovers, so it’s relevant.
I understand that many DMB owners will want nothing to do with the new incarnations of DMB, as they hate IS for killing it, and don’t want to give them another cent. That’s a fair viewpoint. That said, there are certainly some positives with moving to an on-line game:
That said, it will come down to the ability to customize a league’s format and the cost of playing in leagues (I’ve long said that one cool thing about playing DMB is that I just buy one season disk each year, but play three leagues with it). And the afore-mentioned attitude towards IS.
(more commentary and quoting, including an offer for free play, if you click the Comments link)
I do think it’s worth pointing out that IS is trying to do do right by DMB owners (or, depending on how you see things, trying to take advantage of their brain power):
I will try out the new on-line game, and am open to moving to it. Like I said, there are some definite positives with a game that is managed on-line. I understand the people that feel they’ve been sold out and don’t want to even give it a chance, though.
