Eve Online fans literally cheer Microsoft Excel features at annual Fanfest | Ars Technica
There aren’t many games for which built-in integration with Microsoft Excel would be a major feature whose announcement would draw literal cheers from fans. But Eve Online showed itself to be the exception when developer CCP announced coming Excel integration during its Eve Fanfest keynote this morning.
“It’s not April fools; this is real,” Eve Online Creative Director Bergur Finnbogason said on the Fanfest stage, receiving bemused laughter in response. “I’m not lying—we actually reached out to [Microsoft] and they were like, ’Oh my god, We love Eve!’”
