One Million Play Aion In China


Chinese MMO distributor Shanda have reported that one million people logged on to the Chinese-language version of NCSoft's Aion in the first four days of play. It's worth remembering that the Chinese model means that gamers play by the hour, so this could easily go on to become a gigantic success, or just disappear overnight - a distinct possibility when financial type sources (via GI.biz) suggest that many gamers came away from their hours of Aion with some rather negative feedback. Aion is scheduled for release in Europe and North American in the autumn. (At which time I expect we'll have to pay by the month.)
