its an Mmo not a style of game its a whole genre there must be a audience for Mmos in NA

A MMO can work in any region with any genre.

Two things are essential.
-Price Point
-Replay Value

Many MMOs lack both of those with little replay value, bad economies, and terribly high subscription rates for anyone to take interest in it.

One big note about Asia its well over a billion people there. It will be successful there no matter what, and it gives alot of room for changes to increase popularity to consumers. So its more like the Beta test of any MMO games before they could be implemented anywhere else they can perfect them in the Asian market. Tweaks from MMOs of series that are in Asia have migrated to titles in the US/EU regions in many occasions.
