Long term I agree. Short term, I can see an opportunity and since the cost isn't significant assuming the technology glitches are minimal then I don't think you need a slew of players first. Content and a viable platform will attract players. It is a chicken and egg kind of thing and those that get in early will benefit. The "lets wait and see" type won't see the same returns.
What I see happening is the creators forgetting about the stores they have there and not updating them if they don't have active buyers - kind of like the satellite shops they have on shopping sims etc. OR what always seems to kill it for the fashionistas is some sort drama - event drama, so and so hurt my feelings drama and a group leaves that way.
