Torillian - Because everything else got a massive boost far exceeding LBP?
I mean, LBP could, and should get a boost come December. Problem is, that boost may get it to 250-300k for December. That'd put LBP at a very sad total for the EOY, and well under 1m sold through in the US.
That also means that VGC overtracked Valkyria by quite a large sum, and VC sold less than what ToV did in one week in August...For the US.
I guess the Playstation 3 really can't sell JRPGs. Even less so than the X360.
I don't think it's fair to compare a new IP SRPG to the latest entry in the Tales series by Team Symphonia.
