    This looks might awesome. I can't wait to play as a cop and taze criminals.

    I refuse to get excited about this.
    There will be screenshots, announcements, trailers and then the game will get canned.

    MMO games in development for the 360 are cursed!

    I'm still waiting for Huxley to hit the shelves...


    But I think this one will be fer realz. It's made by the same people who did Crackdown, and if that game came out then this surely will too.

    Hopefully you can get a cop car, and use that as your epic mount.

    Sounds cool. Still play the hell out of Crackdown, so I'd be up for this as well.

    This looks awesome, with the dynamic matchmaking going on all the time it has the potential to almost never get boring.
    And the cars look great, I'm hoping to get a Jag to use as my justice mobile. :D

    I'd give it a shot. Depending on the monthly fee on top of the XBL fee.

    Ew, I hope there isn't. Isn't Microsoft making enough from Live fee's that they can cut slack on this game?

    Doubtful. If the game itself is going to be running dedicated servers for this, the company is going to need some income to support that.

    Most XBL games are hosted by the players, this one won't be.

    Realtime Worlds already used in game advertising in Crackdown, perhaps that alone could be enough.

    And I'm surprised that Microsoft isn't publishing, I had thought that RTW was part of the new EU Microsoft Games Studios.
