Aug 27th 2009 4:45AM They talked alot about the new MMO on DirectTV where Mike + Chris I think (or that Art Director guy can't remember his name...) confirmed the rumors about the MMO beeing a new universe. They also said that they didn't want the WoW-players to "join" the new MMO, they're not making it for WoW-players and so on.
So you got that one right, imo. ;)
Aug 18th 2009 4:59AM It's a new brand called "Maelstrom Phonetics", a type of head-set designed to fit World of Warcrafts upcoming expansion (which still is unknown) that Creative has done hand-in-hand with Blizzard employees.
It has nothing to do with the new expansion, there will be two sets of the head-sets, one Horde and one Alliance. If you're going to BlizzCON you might be lucky enough to win one/buy one at a reduced price... And with lucky I mean there will be a limited copy of them, I think it was 50 000 only worldwide.
How do I know all this? Well, I can tell you as much as my dear friend is lucky enough to work at Creative and he mentioned this yesterday. :-)
Oh, and about the head-set not beeing part of the new expansion? I lied.
Cataclysm is not the new expansion, Maelstrom is.
