Aion released Q4 2009??

Apparently if this is true, then Aion won't be released until Q4 2009. I most likely won't play if it is... I might lose interest in the game... as I already am starting too. Let's hope it's not true and we get Aion by April/May...

    All of it is simply speculation, no release date has been announced yet.

    It's really hard to say what the release date is as NCsoft is being very hush hush about it. It's hard to believe it actually takes a full year to localize a game that has been already planned for the US/EU when it was still in development,

    Translating korean to correct Uk english and American english can take a while, plus reorganisation of Nc west (customer service, billing etc).  if it does take any longer,some of the pple that are waiting,will indeed loose interest and move on to something else. I just hope that  they ditch out some more news, so pple are not left in the dark about what's actually going on.

    they are gonna loose alot of players to starwars and the other games coming out later this year if they dont release around may... they are still gonna loose some but not as many i think.

    "I'm not gonna play dis game if it doezn' com out noa!"

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. But then come 2010 you've played all the other ones you're bored you rediscover Aion and post in the forums:

    "I dun no whies I wazn't playing b4, lolzzzz!111"

    >.>

    What makes you think TOR is coming out this year? It probably won't. Patience. All in good time and that counts for any game. If you can't wait go ahead and play something else, if you honestly think that this will affect Aion in any way, please, if the game is solid and fun people will buy it and start playing no matter how many new games they've just bought.

    Sorry for making fun, when you follow many games you notice a certain pattern over and over and over. It's both funny and aggravating.

    I never understood that "If this game doesn't release soon i'm shunning it and disregarding it from my memory for it will never get played by ME" mentality. Then again i've never agreed with the "I hate EA/Sony/Blizzard i'll never play a game by them because they hurt my feelings" crowd either.

    The game will come out. And i'll play it like every other game that comes out. But i'm looking forward to this one and it can take as long as it likes to be awsome... just kinda getting ancy!

    That thread was moved to the graveyard section for the reason. Its just speculation.

    The reality of the situation is the Western release date is not linked to the JP release, CN or TW releases. NCWest is working to its own schedule which it is still on. Nothing has changed, but people insist on believing it has. Truth of the matter is there is a possibility it may have changed but we didnt have an initial release date anyways!

    Theres nothing to be done/said really. Just wait for an official release date.

    Currently waiting for the MMO industry to put out something good.

    I guess I'm not sure how you lose interest because it takes X months for a language translation.

    I mean don't take what I said the wrong way... its just that the MMO market space is pretty lackluster atm.  So beyond not wanting to wait (because it interests you).  I just don't see what exactly could make you lose interest..

    Then again I have a pretty ugly view of the current MMO market.. so maybe its just me.  I might lose interest after I can buy it...  Hopefully not.

    NcSoft is not worried about releasing AIon to the NA/EU anytime soon. They will release it all to the east before they even consider launching in the NA/EU areas. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for it.

    THANK YOU! I've never understood that either.

    When it comes out it comes out. If I play it (which I will) and like it then good. If not then I don't and do something else.

    What the heck has happened to people?

    i blame wow   sorry couldn't resist.

  • Falcon2KFalcon2K MönchengladbachPosts: 52Member

    I can tell you, why I will loose interest in the game if the Q4 rumors are true.

    Everything about the game will be known until this time. Each dungeon, boss tactic, best gear, farmspots etc, etc, etc will be lengthly described and translated by fansites.

    Even if you try to avoid this informations, someone else in your party or guild will have read it. And as it is a pvp game you will have to follow that info in order to stay competitive.

    No more sense of exploring, nothing to discover.

    just my 2 cents

     

  • CyntheCynthe Peace River, AlbertaPosts: 1,412Member Uncommon

    Falcon you could say this about many MMOs. Some western games if not all are first released here and then in Asia, Australia ect... Are those people having less fun?

    If you want to play 'first' make sure to follow a game made in your region.

    I have to admit that, even with language as a hurdle, it's the same for asian players. But I am sure they don't like it either and many of them will stay away from western games that are to 'old' like I will from Aion.

    It's just a great part of my gaming fun that is taken away if there is nothing to find or find out about a game anymore. I'm for sure the explorer type of a player. Others, more focused on other aspects won't probably have same problems with such delays.

    Asian players generally don't like the UGLINESS of  european/north american appearance, Vanguard for example. However if it has a "niche style" like wow, or "hello kitty" or something, its not really a bother. But to have your character look like an ugly chimp or gorilla chick doesn't fly to well...

    I share this sentiment. ;)

    NC has already demod a full English Client back before the KOR release. More than likely NC is holding on a NA/EU release to make sure they don't screw the pooch like a lot of companies have been lately.

    This game has the basic ability to be a cash cow for NC, so they're workin the bugs out fast in KOR and working pretty fast for balance.

    I see that this game still has no hope of releasing before the summertime. lol Everytime I come here to look at Aion, which is like every month or two, it's being pushed back by at least a few months. :P Oh well I'll still patiently wait for it. :)

  • skeaserskeaser Wichita Falls, TXPosts: 3,901Member Uncommon

    As long as it is polished, I'll play it, whenever it does arrive.

    I too am upset by a potential extra year of waiting, but whining will do me no good.

      . . . and you are pulling this from where?  I certainly hope not from an online store, they tend to make up their own dates until one has officially been announced.

    It's a Jeep thing. . .
