Just viewed a commercial where it said that online Games were also going to be available on Dish TV.
Online Games would although only be limited to the Dish TV subscribers (of course) and the could play it on a special DishTV channel called PlayJam. Reportedly, people would have the ability to make their own Screen names for playing the DishTV games and they would be teamed up with other players in team games as well. Therefore, there would be no NPC (Non Player controlled) characters at all! Which is actually good.
Teams would be rotated on per month basis and will be sorted randomly. I don’t know the name of the games yet, but most likely, one is Soccer, there are three others I don’t know much about.
This is really very revolutionary seeing that gaming on TV has never been the same before literally, and I have never heard of anything like this. Really an awesome thing to happen, now waiting for MMORPGs to happen so that our dear old Dish networks can race ahead of popular games like RO, GW, WoW, RS etc. Although it is a thing of the future but for the while you can just be happy with MOG’s (Multiplayer Online Games).
Yay for DishTV!
