Square Enix fucked up big time on this one, hopefully sales aren't too badly damaged by the shortage.
I don't know, things could go either way. All the news about it selling out and shortages could also make it a more wanted item, boosting its appeal, and sales potential. Trust me, Nintendo does it all the time :p
Seriously though, I am super glad this is doing well. I have played over 40 hours (which is a feat for my limited time) and I cannot seem to be able to put it down. More games like this, SE, or even better give us that FFVI remake.
