What does everyone think about Inazuma? With the sales of both versions of Ninokuni taken into consideration, I can't help thinking that the 7th gen Level-5 honeymoon is over...

Crap numbers... FFXIII destroyed the FF reputation in Japan... and FFXIII-2 is a good game.


you played it?



I'm not really here!

Its this kind of thing that makes me wonder why this site even bothers with the Japanese preview, they predicted over 700,000 for XIII-2 and it did 520,000.

Why dont they just have the sense to wait for the media create numbers then embarrass themselves with such inaccuracy?

Because it's a preview. It's samples from one store to give a guide on how early numbers will roughly pan out.

I think this topic comes up a lot, the preview is just so a rough (very rough) understanding of how the week might be.

Its pointless, not only is it very inaccurate you have the proper numbers just a couple days later. I could be more accurate than the numbers in that preview.

It's not just FFXIII. It's FF XIV as well.

I really have a feeling that a lot of peope are starting to lose confidence with SE this days. It's really sad what have SE become.



COMG redeemed since FFXIII-2 actually opened below ToX...

New Inazuma 11 is doing ok I guess. With movie (or anime) coming out this week and the normal seasonal lift, it should do well this week.



MikeB predicts that the PS3 will sell about 140 million units by the end of 2016 and triple the amount of 360s in the long run.
