Magic: The Gathering - Tactics Announced

Hmm. The title's so long that there's no room for bad punning ("Hi Card" is what I was going to go for, which is a bit of a stretch, but it's late). Anyway - Mananation broke the story even before the actual website was up (it is now). Basically, Sony are taking Wizards of the Coast's famous collectible-card-game-thingy and doing an MMO with it. They're promising single player scenarios and PvP action (with a "robust tournament environment"), but specific details are thin on the ground. Read the press-release if you fancy decoding them. My reading is very much "Magic: The Gathering... online" rather than a complete translation, but that's just a reading. We'll know soon enough though - it's due for an early 2010 release. You'll find the teaser beneath the cut...

In other Wizards-related matters... does anyone know when on earth the actual virtual board for D&D 4th edition is actually going to be released? Surely it's getting a bit silly now.
