“I believe the performance of Aion in the US and European markets will be very successful. … We are guessing that Aion will be — could be — the second [most] successful MMO in the US market next to World of Warcraft”.
A thought: at what point, exactly, did the whole MMO community — devs, players, what have you — stop trying for #1? This whole “it’s just too big it’s impossible to do so we might as well be in second place” mentality is the hallmark of exactly zero great achievements in human history. Oh, but I guess WoW defies even the weight of all history. My bad.
