    Entropia not a game, who said that?

    Where do ppl get the idea that entropia universe has been classed as not a game? Now MA has said "It's more then a game". That statment does not say that its not a game just that it also something else in addition to being a game.
    Now if someone has an other statment that I haven't heard please post it here so I know where you get this idea.

    from EULA

    2. Description
    MindArk provides the Entropia Universe as a service, described as a virtual universe. The Entropia Universe is not a "game".

    Both those dont exclude it from being a game. Providing a game that has a running VR with communication and safe monatary transactions is a service. But its still also a game. And a way of life could be a game too.

    Quebecer that means that the EULA define Entropia Universe as the actual VR not the game that most ppl play in that VR. Still dont exclude it from being a game yust that the EULA tells you that the game is not the service you are accepting from MA its the VR.

    I think the answer is, originally, MA in fact, didn't want to market the game we play as such... they wanted to separate EU as something different... when people say EU isn't a game, theyre just quoting the tone which MA staff has used in the past.

    I think that now, the tone has changed since first planet company started...

    Planet calypso IS being marketed as a game, while MA markets the EU "platform as something different

    I think you are right. MA wanted to from the beginning to to sell Entropia as the platform which its becoming now. So yea the platform isent a game its a VR thats true, and not all planets are going to be games that has been explaned to me.
    I hereby accept that Entropia Universe is not a game its a VR platform in which at the moment the only VR worlds that are part of it are games.

    Thanks for the input, helped me define what is Entropia Universe and i shall stop calling it a game and start calling Planet Calypso a game in the Entropia Universe VR platform.

    Entropia has gamelike aspects but it`s not a game. It`s a virtual universe with real money involved and some are making a living out of it. I know a few such people. Jena Mercury is one of them I believe.

    Now some might say it`s a game for them as they play it as any other subscription based MMO 1-2h/day after work, depositing regular amount every month(10-20$) on average, teaming up , chatting basically doing same thing they would do in a regular online game. For them this could be a game in the normal sense of the word. Have no doubt about that. To many others however it`s much more than that.
