VC was never expected to sell very well anyway so no suprise there. SRPGs are very niche. The last SRPG to sell 1 million copies was release over 10 years ago.
Sony fanboys expected it to sell, lol.
No. Everyone expected it to be fantastic (it is) and no one expected it to sell.
Not from the conversations i've been involved in here.
Were you high? Even the most hardcore fan of this series didn't expect this to do well. Only a couple of less informed poeple brought this up and even they were just asking if we think if the game will reach a million LTD (which it won't) and were quickly brought to their senses by solid argument against it.
*Release at the prime time of the holiday and face stiff competition from a mammoth release list.
This game simply had no chance.
