It's also interesting that our beautiful bayonetta has more pre orders than FF15 on ps4. and does anyone else agree that a wii u version of FF15 would be above the Xone version?

mm no

what a silly thing to say, FF15 doesnt have a solid release date and most likely will not come out this year. Come back if B2 has more preorders than ff15 before release

whatever (on 27 February 2014)

I don't buy for a second that the XBone preorders for thief are ahead of the PS4 version.
