In the UK, it dropped to £20 a lot of places then sold out everywhere instantly (this was around the 20th Dec), not been in stock at any of the 'big' retailers except Amazon since, though they didn't drop the price.


I got my copy from Wilkinsons of all places, last place it was in stock, for £15.

I see. It's still full price everywhere in the USA. I haven't even seen a sale anywhere.

I'm up to chapter 8 right now on my first play through. It's so different than anything else I've ever played. And quite excellent. Probably my 2nd favorite PS3 game next to MGS4 (if it holds up the quality till the end).

I really hope they consider the sales good enough to make a sequel (assuming the storyline doesn't rule out the possibility, since I haven't finished it yet). Are they really below expectations?

We don't know SEGA's expectations, so we don't know if they are above/below them.

Personally, I think it sold very well in Japan, and very poorly in NA and Others. However, if it manages to hold onto selling 5-10k/week for quite some time, it will eventually pull decent numbers in NA.

As for sequals, I think there is a good chance for one especially if the DLC that is supposedly going to be released outside of Japan does well.




If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

sales are not that bad, but if you take into consideration how many people say it rules.... it sure deserves more!!

i've seen a lot of times in shops here, maybe i get it when it becomes slightly cheaper

*don't throw me tomatoes, but it think a reason it's not selling as it should are the anime-style graphics, people see games with almost-real graphics on Ps3 and buy those instead



This was outsold in Finland and is still hard to find...
Well now after Dead Space,R2,Gh4 and others,I will get this game next.
Then Soul calibur 4,LBP.
Then its time to get new games like Killzone2,Prototype and others.

What is the DLC people are talking about? Where has Sega released info on it? Just don't want to get my hopes up if its not really coming...

here is proof that the DLC exsists.

If I read other sources right, it comes out early 09 outside of Japan, and contains the extra hard mode, and you get to play the game on the side of the empire.

It has already been released in Japan, so if you look you could find what is actually included.

The DLC contents consists of :

- An extra-hard skirmish mode, where maps are revisited, foes are stronger (imagine a lancer with the range and precision of a sniper, or a sniper rifle which can destroy a tank), etc.

- A set of new missions where Edy Nelson is in the lead of a comical commando unit composed of Jann, Homer, Marina, and two other girls... don't remember.

- The possibility to play some of the story-mode battles in the shoes of the Imperial army, and incidentally Selvaria, but you will also get to equip yours shocktroopers with Selvaria's Ruhm (her deadly submachine gun).



The sales are quite disappointing for this game since how good it is. Bought it 2 weeks ago and it hasnt left my PS3 since. Its amazing and addicting. Will probably not be buying F.E.A.R. 2 because of it.



Great, thanks for the info. It'll give me a good reason to re-visit the game (assuming its not out before I get done with it...).

I've never bought DLC for a game...this'll be the first!
