    That’s it?

      That actually isn’t a bad start. This is a subscription-based game, so the real question is how many of these players they’ll be able to retain over the next year or so.

        One that’s been readily available on other platforms for years, at that.

          Weeell… when those other platforms are 360/PC, one could argue there’s room for MHFG to grow. :P

          • Solomon_Kano

            Heh. Fair enough.

            Though I’d expect the time since would also be enough for those who couldn’t play it to figure out if they’d even want to.

            That’s true. I would imagine there are also a few people that put their Xboxes (and by extension, the game) away at some point, and are coming back to it with the PS3 version.

            I could see that coming.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      It’s a notoriously awful pay to play MMO that’s been available on PC, and 360 for years. 200,000 users is too much.

    Is Frontier “G” available on older platfroms or those aren’t “G”?

    i feel sorry for any one who bought this without researching it

  • FlyingPony

    Localized it, release it on PC and make it possible playing offline and I’d buy in instant.
