Popular MMOs In Japan?

Was re-watching Lucky Star and it suddenly came to me - what MMOs do Japanese play the most?

What are the most popular MMOs in Japan? FFXI? WoW?

Yea I watched that episode today and thought that too haha
Found an article on gamespot from 2006, and the tops were Ragnarok Online and Sukatto Golf Pangya (which I have no idea what is), and as a third FF XI. No WoW.

the link (http://www.gamespot.com/news/6147395.html)

EDIT: OMG is this? Only video I found on youtube.

Pangya would be Albatross 18 to western audiences.

That's a great game which I used to play, I had no idea it was that popular in Japan. Cool.

I work in the MMO industry and I can tell you that the MMO industry in Japan, while promising very high returns if done right, don't have that many players..

I think Final Fantasy XI is one of the biggest.
