Eve Online is kinda big, but it will EXPLODE when Dust 514 is released. so i'm gonna say Dust/Eve since they will go together.

and your mom

a whole lot of friends and I are planning on playing SW:TOR when the summer ends...

If it's done right, SW:TOR will give WoW a run for their money.

Honestly, the field is so crowded, it really isn't a matter of being "big", it's a matter of being profitable. EVE is big, yes, but their success comes from a long term investment in being a niche title. Dust 514 isn't going to make anyone who isn't already vaguely interested in it suddenly convert over from say, playing WoW. People like what they like. SW:TOR may have better efforts swaying people from the 'big names' but at that point (and already), WoW's age catches up with it. Simple fatigue often sways people, not because it is necessarily better/more awesome mechanics wise, etc.

@inkycatz: i dunno, you could be right, but i think it really depends on how good Dust is, and how they integrate it into Eve. it could go either way but i wouldn't be surprised if you were right.

@gatzby: yeah, i know. i've had 360 and Ps3 for a while. I honestly don't prefer one to the other but always played the PS because online play was free. but after the hack, i've started leaning towards the 360. However, i have no issue with the PS and if a PS exclusive game comes out that i want i'll definitely buy it. either way, i'm excited enough about Dust to not care what its released on.

@rockytrh: How many times have we heard that though? It's going to happen eventually I suppose...

@promyst: Sorry it just isn't I bought it and played for 2 months. At this point a new MMO should launch with the standard features of the current MMOs.

battlestar galactica is very much like eve, and has been doing really wel recently...

@wootfast: Thank you for using "massive multiplayer online" game in your answer. I was stopped at the block by MMO, even though I knew what WoW meant. I am a retired Runescape player. My kids made me stop after I pulled to the side of the road to pick up some road kill bones. Thin line between reality and make-belive when your life is on a computer.
