    GW2 going to China

    http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news...34_115061.html

    Note that the projected sales number by Daewoo Securities was published a couple months back and did not include any plans for China. Really curious what the projections would look like now.

    I read somewhere else that the other title they were talking about, Blade & Soul, went huge in Korea beating out Diablo there.

    It's good to know another MMO is doing well. The genre needs fresh blood.

    Milk for the corn flakes. Antiseptic for the cuts. Noose for the neck. Suicide letter for the family.

    THQ has to get their stuff together first, the smallest mistake for them right now may cause bankruptcy.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that article said Blade & Soul was going to China, not GW2.

    I know it prob will never happen, but would love to see Arena-net or Blizz get the rights to Warhammer.

    I think this is the case. The article seems to be written pretty badly.

    First sentence in the article?

    Game developer NCsoft is seeking a greater global presence by making forays into the United States and China with its latest games, including Guild Wars 2 and Blade & Soul.

    Have to admit though, Space Marine's gunplay was everything Gears of War should have been. GoW turned me off so quick in the first 10 minutes. All you do is sit behind a fucking rock most of the time, and the chainsaw is useless!

    OT - This is a good move by them and hopefully it pays off. It would be very good for the game and the company if the game became a hit in China!

    Okey, quoting out of the text;

    “Since April, the company has received 1 million pre-orders.”
    Sup, we got our number here?

    (Here in it's full text;
    “I expect Guild Wars 2 to sell 3.1 million copies after commercialization in August,” Daewoo Securities analyst Kim Chang-kwean said by telephone. “Since April, the company has received 1 million pre-orders.” He compared the numbers favorably with Aion, of which
    NCsoft had 900,000 pre-orders when it was launched four years ago)

    I am, and after BWE3 it will rise a lot more probably.
    And I won't even start talking about post-release
    Damn I'm happy for ArenaNet!
