So I got an email from Lego today letting me in on a little secret. As of today they are pre-selling their soon to be online Lego game, and to get people to sign up they're offering a little incentive. A "mini" incentive really, lol. Here's a piece of the email info:
"We are very pleased to announce that the much anticipated, LEGO Universe, is now available for pre-order! By pre-ordering the game consumers are not only guaranteed to be among the first to play the game but will also receive an Exclusive LEGO Universe Minifigure and In-Game Accessories (while supplies last)."
So for those of you with boys, this seems like a really cool fun thing. My son is up in arms begging me to get this. He loves Legos! He has a HUGE 55 gallon bucket full of all kind of kits, he's got the Lego Xbox 360 games, and this seems like the next step in his Lego obsession, lol. He's never played a Mulitiplayer online game before, and I would say this would be a fun safe way to let him be like dad (who is a huge fan of MMOG's). The exclusive minifigure is a pretty nice incentive too.........just think how much that will be worth to Lego collectors in the future. Hmmmmm, I'm starting to talk myself into it......
Here's what the website says about the game:
