EVE: A Sandbox Space MMORPG Based in Part on Traveller

The game has been out for a while, but I just heard of it. Has anyone played this? Check these links out....looks awesome as hell.

Unlike most MMO's, it seems to have one server, meaning anyone who plays the game interact with each other. That's 300,000 people. Even more interesting, there appears to have been a huge secret infiltration over the course of a year from one massive guild to another, resulting in switching sides in the middle of an enormous battle, resulting in major gamechanging events, as the formerly larger guild fell.

A game that allows for such sandboxyness to take place gets a thumbs up without me even having to play it.
