It's a remake.




FF I and II are also technically 'remakes' on the PSP but they might as well be ports.



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

FF1 and 2 on PSP are basically the same graphics and mainly the same content. Persona PSP has revamped graphics and new content. But I don't see what that has to do with anything? A remake of a niche game outsold a new game in a popular series. That's all.




PSWii undertracked, 360 spot on.

Adjustments? It seems there are adjustments after every NPD. Gah, this is going to require re-making my sig of pwnage.

A new coat of paint and new cutscenes aren't much of a remake but ok. This has nothing to do with anything except you said it was justice for a 'remake' to outsell a new game and I was wondering why.

lol @ soriku

lol!  Damn, gansito...



I'm surprised by the average retail price that NPD is reporting for Wii last month. At $ 218 it indicates close to 300k units would have sold at the new price, which means it sold only around 160k units in the first 4 weeks and then another 300k in the last week. So it seems NPD has Wii dropping a lot lower in the weeks leading up to the price cut and then a much larger spike afterwards, at least compared to Vgchartz. I guess it is possible taking all the rumors of a price cut into account.
