NCsoft release of Lineage II, sequel to its popular Lineage title, snares a record-setting number of subscribers in game's first days.
Korean sources tell GameSpot that in the game's first five days in release, publisher NCsoft has tallied more than 130,000 paid users. The game was released on October 1, 2003.
This level of success is unheard of in the highly competitive online marketplace in Korea. One industry analyst told GameSpot recently that even the most popular online products in that market take an average of six months to secure subscriber numbers that top 100,000.
