is there room for smaller shooters?

I was wondering;  Do smaller shooters (i.e. blacklight, cellfactor, etc.) have a place, next to halo, call of duty, battlefield, etc?  
blacklight came out last week,  i don't see a lot of players playing it.  which is too bad because i think it's a pretty good COD clone.  
is it price? is 1200msp too much? too little? 
anyway, if your looking for a competent  shooter that's has some depth and is fairly cheap,  give this a shot.   you maybe surprised.
