I agree with th 600K estimate but how many of those players, played because of the sandbox element and how many played because of the MMORPG element. I would argue the majority of the 600K did not enjoy open world PvP. You may only have about 100K veteran diehards, the rest went to WOW

The problem is that the original audience may only have been a 100K

One can argue that if you build a world that people want to live in, the money will come as a direct result of the games popularity. Currently more people want to raid and instance PvP then play in a Sandbox.
The good news is, if you like single facet open PvP Ultima Online or even SWG, there are excellent emulation communities that are bringing these games to life, with 500 players logging in every night and even GM PvP events. You can still get your sandbox fix.

Jan 3rd 2012 1:03PM I spent a few weeks playing Dark Orbit, here is the problem, it has a open world PVP, you leave your starting area you get killed by someone that spent a few hundred dollars on ship and equipment. If you don't also sped a few hunder dollars on ship and equipment you can never leave your starting are without getting killed. And once you level past your starting area you have to leave it to earn more experience and fight harder mobs. So the game gets really annoying really fast. Also it costs real money to repair your ship so once you get blown to bits by some elitist it actually costs you money, unless you just fly one of the free ships (which suck)
