Correct me if I'm wrong, but...
FFXI sold under 2m units globally, correct? Why is this in the same territory as the other announced exclusives from Nintendo and MS that are far larger?
mrstickball I hope your not basing that on incompletle Vgchartz numbers . I hope your keeping in mind the difficulty , no the impossibility that the average person faced when trying to get online and the mandatory need for a PS2 hard drive yet it still sold , I hope your keeping in mind the size of the MMO market then in relation to it's size now. But you already know that don't you ?
Actually, I was basing it off subscriptions to FFXI. FFXI was on PC. You know that, right?
FFXI is below WoW, Lineage 1 & 2, RuneScape, and most likely Dofus. Heck, if you throw other MMOs in the mix, FFXI is most likely below Mob Wars and Elven Blood, too.
Because of that, I don't think that an online RPG from Square quantifies as a spectacular must-have game, given the sales and subscriptions despite the game being on the PS2, 360, and PC.
