I have yet to see that quality matched by western mmo's. Black Desert is a game that seems to be positioning itself to be a real contender in the NA market. This looks like a monster of a game, with customization and features that already are very good. Just to note, In general I abhor asian games, the grindfest is just terrible, along with the childlike proportions of the art itself. Yet with a 3-5 year development cycle to remake the game for western audiences we could be looking at a very real competitor to the North American game industry. If you haven't checked out the level of quality this game has, take a look at it.
Definitely factor this into your long term strategy.
