I say this again
PS3 has many more people online than PS2 did......MMO's have become even larger since FF11
FF11 xbox 360 sales were disappointing as it was a rehashed PS2 game
this will be a new MMO, hyped to hell released ina market that games online MUCH MUCH MORE....
please don't tell me PS2 had more people playing online games that PS3 does.....because it didn't
thats the main difference
The graph Mr. Stickball has is for pc users and he actually marked it wrong, maximum subscribers for ffxi only reached slightly above 500,000. Are you saying people didn't know how to go online with their pc's back then?
I don't think this is a big announcment because it's an mmo with a monthly subscription, a turn off for many people and because it is also being released on the pc hence negating it as a hardware pusher. It will probably do decently but defintely not a massive announcement.
