  • Wow, im willing to bet there will be alot of buyers remorse on those Aion purchases. One of the better "me too" MMORPG's but that in itself is the problem. Its just a copy (but what isnt nowdays, a zillion FPS still sell like hotcakes, HALO didnt even try to hide that ODST was just a addon for full price). Aion is fun for awhile, because it looks good and it seems new. But a few days playing shows its just what every other one is. fun for a short while then ... Willing ot bet money its not a top 10 game after its been out for over a month in any sales chart.
