I'd imagine there was plenty of space for a social networking site that was fully translated into various character based languages.

It seems strange that they'd talk about this so soon after acquiring CoH/CoV from the developers - can't imagine that they'd be willing to dump that investment so soon. It'd be a shame, CoH is one of my all time favouritest online games of all time.

They arn't dumping anything Flibblebot - that is why this news is so overblown... Just adding other services to their games portfolio, they've got Aion still coming out next year an update for CoH/CoV next week I think and Guild Wars 2 is coming out in the future. I'm sure there are lots of other stuff happening too. Anyone who things they are just going to go into Web 2.0 social networking and dump everything else is an idiot who believes all the 2.0 bullshit
