Very good point, and highlights the shift in the industry towards blurring the lines between single and (online) multiplayer aspects of games.

Maybe it is not very wise as the industry will lose revenue that might come from their legacy games - but probably they overcome this by re-inventing the wheel every now and charge increased price preying on the old and new gamers. It is always a win-win situation for them!
