Today we've dug up three reader response sections to Gamespot questions of the weeks that each highlight Wing Commander. If you know of any we've missed here (and don't have in the old news archives), please let us know. The first is in regards to Gamespot's Massively Multiplayer editorial. There was a proper WC plug in the full feature, but people still wrote in to ask why there wasn't an actual Privateer Online game yet. You can find it here.
Why hasn't Origin started making an online Wing Commander: Privateer-like game? It seems like it would make sense and have plenty of people interested. Or would the speed of the Internet affect gameplay? Regardless, why haven't they at least tried?There's a Gamespot editor's note that mentions Freelancer.. too bad they neglect to mention it's not a WC-like space sim nor that Origin did try and EA pulled the plug.
