It can’t all be doom, gloom, and the PSN being hacked. Sometimes it’s tiny, cheerful (and occasionally stupid) nuggets of news.

According to this, Dave Perry – long-standing developer of dozens of games, including the Matrix titles – was more than a little shocked that Microsoft recently decided to bin Cryptic’s Marvel MMO.
“That is stunning to me, absolutely stunning to me,” he said. “Marvel, as a property, is more mass-market than World of Warcraft.”
He continued: “World of Warcraft sells because Blizzard made it, and Blizzard is a fantastic company, right? The talent at Blizzard is just phenomenal. If you can get a team that’s got the same quality and you have that licence, I’ll take the Marvel licence every time over Warcraft.”
Perry is currently working on free-to-play MMOs at Acclaim, among other projects.

While its Marvel MMO has been canned, City of Heroes developer Cryptic obviously isn’t taking the matter to heart. The next issue of Game Informer has first details of the company’s new super-hero MMO, Champions Online.
“We have the first look at Cryptic Studios’ latest superhero MMO, Champions Online,” it says here. “The City of Heroes developers are taking on PCs and consoles, too, letting us all unleash our inner heroes — or villains.”
The Marvel MMO was being planned for Xbox 360, so it’s not a giant surprise Cryptic would still want to get into the console space with a hero game. Expect more on this from GDC next week, where Cryptic is going proper tonto with the amount of sessions it’s serving.
