Aion The Most Pre-ordered MMO In 2009

September 19, 2009 at 14:49 Leave a comment

In a piece of news that we’re betting surprises precisely nobody at all, Aion has just broken the 400,000 pre-order mark. What’s notable about this number is that it’s enough to make Aion the largest number of pre-orders on an MMO for 2009. As Aion is also holding strong in the Steam and Direct2Drive sales charts, we wonder how many more we’ll see added to that number before the official launch next Tuesday.

With highly polished graphics, over two million words of quest text, and a series of tweaks to make Aion more Western-friendly, NCsoft seems to have finally hit the right stride with Western MMO gamers. That said, as we’ve learned from all the other games that have come before it, the real numbers that count are the retention numbers after the initial launch. Whether or not Aion is the goose that lays the golden egg – at least in terms of the Western markets – we’ll have to wait and see.
