Whoah! Do you really think Pandora's Tower will sell 200-300k lifetime? The Last Story only sold 190k lifetime and it ended with 40k pre-orders (33% more). Also Pandora's Tower only managed 80k in Europe and Japan.


ktay95 (on 19 April 2013)

this is just how there system works. they dont take into account how old the system is or how obviously front loaded it is. they just take preorder numbers and times it by a magical number (which is the same for all games)

Hmm... looking at the preorder numbers, I reckon Soul Sacrifice will end up at around 40-50k preorders, I wonder what the lifetime sales will be...


ktay95 (on 19 April 2013)

im hoping lifetime it sells 250-350k everywhere excluding Japan, hopefully it warrants a sequel
