The Matrix *Will* Exist

The Wachowski Brothers are intent on the Matrix becoming a reality. They are creating The Matrix Online, a MMORPG where in a sense, you will live a life inside of the Matrix. If you aren't sure what a MMORPG is, think Everquest, Asheron's Call, or The Sims Online. It's a game where you create a digital character that will live within an on-line digital environment simultaneously with thousands of other players, where you can interact and explore. You have to purchase the game, and then usually pay a per month fee for the service of playing the game (game must be played on-line connected to servers maintained by the game company). In most MMORPG's you are forced to join forces with other player to accomplish some objectives that cannot do done by one player alone.
Everquest has a reputation of breaking up families because players usually put so much time into the game they neglect their real life responsibilities. People will sell their high-level character and game items on eBay for cash (this might have been banned by eBay).
This isn't the first MMORPG base off a movie franchise, there is Star Wars Galaxies. This game was released sometime around June, and within 2 months had 250,000 registered users, and from what I heard recently, no one has yet to achieve "Jedi" status in the game.
