PC Sales Charts: Apologies Are In Order

Aion: I'm sorry. I've been ignoring you just like I ignore practically every MMO, but despite your silly name and bland art you are proving surprisingly popular. So, from here on in, I'll try and ignore you... less.

    So there is a reason for it being relatively popular.
