Here are the people you'll have to become familiar with in Sony Online's upcoming MMO, The Agency. You'll see characters from The United Nations Intelligence and Tactical Experts (U.N.I.T.E) and The Paramilitary Global Operations Network (ParaGON). For the most part, MMOs don't appeal to us - or to many console gamers - but think about the concept for a second- you've got a spy/espionage style of game with an action gameplay interface, and you set it online for an unlimited number of players. It's like becoming a real-life Bond and living in a world of elite agents and formidable foes! The foundation of the idea is excellent...let's just hope it plays out nicely on the Internet.
