Electronic Arts to release CD version of ‘Majestic’

Cyberbiz Brief

Due to lackluster demand among Netizens to play its much hyped online game “Majestic,” Electronic Arts said Wednesday that it will ship a CD version of the title to retailers later this year in an effort to energize sales. The software for the game will be packaged and sold at retail outlets in coming weeks for between $30 and $50. The current download on the Internet is free, but players pay $9.95 a month to play Majestic through EA.com‘s subscription service.

Online subs have stalled at about 13,500, well below the number that registered to play the game prior to its launch in August.

Majestic has been hailed by critics and fans because of the way it draws players into unraveling a mystery through e-mails, calls and faxes to their homes and offices. However, Electronic Arts halted play for a week after the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, saying the game’s violent content could disturb people.
