oh yeah the "conspiracy"
you see whenever a 360 JRPG got bad reviews (all of them) from western publications everyone shouted FOUL n said Western reviewers don't know how to review JRPG's & that western reviewers only give high marks to FF.
but then Valkyria Chronicles got brilliant reviews n then Persona 4 (a weak franchise sales wise) got great reviews too.
Well, other than LO and ToV the 360 jrpgs are shit, and VC is good and p4 seems good (I'm not a big persona fan atm, i have not played them so i can't really judge). There is no conspiracy on that. Plus I think most of the paying off comes from big publishers (usually western).
