Mobius Launches EVE Online in Southeast Asia

2007 will be a year of big-name games for the Philippines: AMDG with Lineage II and Level Up with Ragnarok 2. For a while, I thought Mobius was out of the gaming game, what with the opening of their online music store and the loss of their gaming guru blogger. Then, out of the blue, Mobius President Jojo Anonuevo tells me they’re launching EVE Online in Southeast Asia.

Dime-a-dozen no-name token-effort games have flooded the Philippines over the last three years. Good to see tide turn this year. Where the big boys go, the little boys will follow: expect even smaller game publishers to start offering bigger titles. With bigger games will come the maturation of the Philippine game market, perhaps to the point where it could support World of Warcraft.

On a side note, EVE Online holds the record for the biggest in-game heist in MMORPG history, to the tune of $16,500 in virtual goods — and it’s all legal within game rules, too. I bet Filipino creativity can top that.

    @Chris!
    I think mobius only takes care of the payment part. They don’t host the game, so you can still use your international account. You only need to use mobiusonline to pay for your game time.

    Hey Mike… how could you brand yourself ice-President for Online Services of the Philippine Internet Commerce Society. You can’t even straight up facts? Duh! Or your just balasting Mobius with your lame inconsistent untrue facts? a BIG ROFL for you man… Dude, Mobius didnt buy the liscense. It just provide the opportunity for players locally to purchase the Eve Time Codes… go sit down and research more!!! duh!!!

    I never said they got a “liscense” for anything, Lawl. Learn to read. After that, maybe you can learn to spell.

    will this Eve on SEA be free to play or pay to play? or will it be a premium load – free to play, like RF online?
