In Response To: Re: Bungie Article I Found (old) (mnemesis)

: I got to have a chat with Max Hoberman at E3 this year, and he had some
: interesting things to say about a couple of the old, unsolved acronyms.

: For instance, SPMLOAS: The conventional wisdom is that "Single-Player
: Myth, Loads (or Lots) Of Additional Shit (or Stuff)" is the answer.
: Every part of that guess is completely wrong. The correct solution has a
: name in it, and that name pertains to a failed business venture back in
: Bungie's history.

Hmm... I guess this depends on a person's interpretation of 'failure'. For a short period of time in Bungie's history they tried to do everything. Publish other people's games, port their own games to other platforms, port other people's games, and license their technologies to other game developers. I suppose some of these could be described as not being very successfully (yes, I'm being polite). Indeed, we might not even have heard of the one Max is referring to. Companies tend not to disclose their 'failures' for obvious reasons.

Cheers
Hamish
