This game looks to be undervalued, while it is a valid point that previous MMOFPSs have failed or not met expectations, there is usually a time when a particular genre matures, and this game (especially when looking at the gameplay videos), and along with Webzen's other game, All Points Bulletin, look to be a solid offerings that will push the MMOFPS genre forward.
If their server technology is implemented well, it is possible that this will be a hit both home and abroad, leading me to believe that sales of 500k minimum are possible if they allow this game to mature beyond just being a large scale shooter with hubs for towns. The character customization and various things that can be done outside of the FPS portion of the game lead me to believe that this will happen, if so it could lead to long legs as this game becomes more than just a shooter, becoming more of an MMORPG that builds a dedicated community that can slowly convince their friends and others to join.
With recent PC games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl selling 1.65 Million, surprising many people (SE prediction was only 37DKP), I think the same thing will happen here, especially if Webzen can get the hype machine rolling at the right time. Plus, compare this game to Hellgate: London, which we have at 58DKP, even though that game was buggy when released and received negative press. A price point greater than 50DKP seems reasonable to me.
