Note: This is my first post, but I have been lurking on the forums for awhile now and I finally figured I'd add something to talk about ;). I haven't been a big gamer for awhile (see: "casual") and have never owned a Playstation *GASP!*. I recently made the move to a 360 ($235 CDN Pro Holiday Bundle on Boxing Day, w00t!) and it has really made me more hooked on video games than I have been in quite some time. With that out of the way, onto the topic at hand!
KZ2 sales will be huge, but do you think this game will be a console mover for the "unconverted"? What I mean is, it is pretty much a given that it will be a huge hit amongst the faithful who already own a PS3 much like MGS4 was, but I'm curious how it will fair in actually making people take notice and spend $500 to play it (from a Canadian point of view: $400 PS3 + $70 game + tax = over $500 (unless you live in Alberta)). I think if MGS4 had no legs and barely made a ripple in the PS3 sales stats, I'm not sure a less established franchise like KZ2 will fare much better. Thoughts?
