On October 25 it only had 36,345 players online.
It's a Final Fantasy! How many of us were suckered into buying Final Fantasy 13? (RAGE!) Was that the last straw for us or is it REALLY the P2P aspect?
I saw the game itself when I was game shopping. I looked at the back of the case and fell in love again with a fanboyism that almost made me run to the till. Until I remembered that it was P2P. I still do truly want to give it a try at least.
So are subscription based games that much of a turn-off for us? For me, once I pay for a game I expect to be able to play it without any hidden clauses or ties. I'm still a huge Final Fantasy fanboy and if this game ever became F2P, I'd jump at it like a dog jumps at a butcher.
