Not loads to tell you this week in the MMO update. Most news surrounding the genre was big enough for its very own post on the site.
However, to keep things the same, we have thrown all the rest into your usual Saturday post.
Final Fantasy XI players will have jobs adjusted, Runes of Magic has new playable classes, the EVE Online thief speaks out, and Funcom has no plans right now for an Anarchy Online 2.
All this and more through the jump.

CrimeCraft will release on August 25, and Best Buy has the exclusive rights to sell it.
That’s right, you can’t buy it anywhere else thanks to the hand shaking between the retail giant, Vogster, and THQ.
The good news, though, is that you can get it online instead of walking into the store if you like, and you will be rewarded with two months of free play and some in-game shirts.
If you pre-order, your in-game character will also get to sport a pair of Eckos (shoes), a spot in the beta and the full game three days earlier than folks who didn’t pre-order.
You can find out more through the link above.

Press release is below.

Leading up to E3, there is not a megaton of news with anything, let alone MMOs. The week was basically all about screens, delving into crafting systems and character sheets, and general stuff that you can view on any online game’s website. It’s called pre-E3 malaise, and today it’s pretty thick.
However, we have dug through the mire once more to bring you something in the way of MMO news that didn’t hit the front page.
You can catch up on it all after the break.

Rumours were rife last night that Crimecraft developer Vogster was set to can a 360 version of the company’s GTA-style, free-to-play MMO.
However, a Vogster rep got in touch with various media outlets this morning to clarify the situation:
“To be clear a console or 360 version has not been ‘canned’,” said the rep.
“The 360 SKU was toyed with in early development but the team has been focusing on the PC SKU and has always planned on it being PC only at initial launch, with the potential for additional platforms down the road. Xbox 360 included.”
Update: Vogster has also released a new trailer for the game which you can see after the break.
