Commitment is something difficult for me.
10 years?

I can't help but feel that having it on the Wii will hamper that plan somewhat. If it had been developed from the up as a Wii U game, it would have been a different story, but like the PS2 holds back Final Fantasy XI, the Wii will end up holding back DQX.

A whole decade is really long for a console nevermind a single game, i'd love to see a game actually pull it off and still remain strong but games change so much over the years there usually replaced by much higher quality games, even WOW is not doing nearly as much damage as it once did and i don't think thats hut ten years yet, another 3 to go?

I've played many MMO's over the years, starting off with an 8 bit mmo called mystic worlds (props to anyone who played that game back in 2002) which is long gone now :( but i've seen a good few other mmo's go through time with updates and new features, but i wonder if they did have a ten year plan, could someone actually play the game often for ten years without getting really bored? doesn't matter how good a game it is i feel if you play and complete it enough it just drys out until you go back to it a few years later and have forgotten half the story, saying that though, i've had counter strike for years and i keep going back to that often, 14k worth of maps to download and play in that game which is why i've never once paid for a few crappy map packs on COD but back to the subject, i'll probably be more interested once i see the Wii u version in action, right now all i've seen is Wii screenies and to be honest if i had powers like bobby has i'd only have a 1or 2 year plan for that, the Wii is really past its time now to make any decent type of money from it.

Are we sure this isn't a mistake in the translation? 10 weeks/10 years... Seems ludicrous that even a bragging dev would claim they were going to support a product with 10 years of DLC.

So they fully intend to provide a skeleton game and flesh it out with (no doubt paid for) DLC. When did this become acceptable?
I'm kind of a big deal...

Well that's the Wii out the window. I'm guessing they're planning on releasing it on the Wii-U 2 as well? No Nintendo console gets support for that long
