I bought this quickly once i saw this bargain bin in walmart.

Sales in JP are ovetracked, Famitsu say it topped out at 185k, still combined with the 360 sales, its done well for a new IP thats not from SE.
Iveyboi (on 10 October 2011)
I admit that this was too difficult for me; sad. Nice to see a HARDCORE RPG made
DitchPlaya (on 28 July 2011)
Wow sold really well in Japan, especially since its a new IP thats not by SE.

I enjoyed this game, it had some funny dialogue. And I was having fun just screwing around and upgrading. The battle system was great. However, scenery matters and it's boring looking enemies and environments so it gets stale. Because they don't really add things. Also I liked dressing up my characters.

from reading reviews i thought that i would have to spend 15 hours learning the game before i could start enjoying it, but its not overly complicated, they just added extra things onto a regular rpg-type battle system, it was pretty easy to learn, pretty enjoyable game

I hope it will help tri-ace to make a new good game : D

@akuseru got it 2 except i borrowed it, though its acutally worth the price I wish the game acutally had a forced tutoral, because it all optional, but all i can say bosses are OP!
st_muscat0 (on 28 May 2010)
Basically no copies of this to be found in Others, non in AUS shops and non online (no PAL region copies). Good sign, its selling they just need more stock, as proven by the game having good legs here.
NSS7 (on 27 May 2010)
nice legs in Others
GupX19A (on 06 May 2010)
Pretty cool game with excellent battle animation, but way too complicated for the average gamer. I play RPGs to the grave and learning the battle system was a headache.
akuseru (on 30 April 2010)
got this yesterday.. i love it so far. complicated tutorial, that's for sure ^^ hahahaha. I can see a lot of people getting scared by this game. me and my buddy was laughing our asses off because of all the info surrounding the battlesystem, etc ^^
Remnant (on 28 April 2010)
Good game. A lot of humor. Hope it does well, I'd like a sequel.
palitococo (on 27 April 2010)
maybe 400K-500K LTD
Rawnchie14 (on 25 April 2010)
Wow, this game's too good to be doing so pedestrian.
Mr Puggsly (on 24 April 2010)
@ italo244
I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a million seller with combined sales. It just might take a couple years and a $20 price tag.
awsmjayloser (on 20 April 2010)
Just got it today. Great opening sequence. Great gameplay, although it's complicated in the beginning. You can basically do EVERYTHING in the beginning in regards to game mechanics, so it can be a lot to handle. Otherwise, it's fabulous!
pariz (on 16 April 2010)
I haven't played this game yet, but if it is really good, many of those who choose Final Fantasy XIII over it might get it later. So I guess sales should be over 500 k one day.
italo244 (on 15 April 2010)
0.30m lifetime?
charbelmkarkour (on 12 April 2010)
Could have been better but a good solid RPG and the action reminds you of Matrix, Shoot Em Up and Wanted
Mubtee (on 09 April 2010)
Wow, this game is in bad shape. Poor tri-ace.
Ravage27 (on 08 April 2010)
they really should have made this a ps3 exclusive. The additional buzz and marketing push would have helped.
jeffrey9999 (on 07 April 2010)
Im sure this is that game I was talking about...........
jeffrey9999 (on 07 April 2010)
I want to mock games for flopping but I seen a review on this game and it didnt score a 8.2 like vgchartz scored it, it got like a 5/10 so I can't bash this game for flopping because it was suppose to, it was originally a psp game but for some crazy reason they decide to put it on the ps3 AS IT WAS when it was finished so it actually graphically look like a psp game cause they left it like that............
jneul (on 07 April 2010)
darth i'm back lol, and i bring ROF with me lol
darthdevidem01 (on 06 April 2010)

Ghazi4 (on 02 April 2010)

StockoPS3 (on 02 April 2010)

darthdevidem01 (on 01 April 2010)
@ghazi

no ROF was 49.99 here

WKC is 44.99
Ghazi4 (on 01 April 2010)
@darthdevidem01 wat u talkin bout!! the HMV i went to had it for 39.99 and so was FF13 except the special editionwas 49.99 but wat i found wierd was white knight chronicles was 49.99
nen-suer (on 01 April 2010)
I still don't understand why they have to release it in crazy march
and very close to FFXIII :(

Am hoping for good legs
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 01 April 2010)
Lol Sega did this with Valkyria Chronicles and now there doing it with RoF...

Sad, Valkyria is by far one of the top 5 overall best games for me this gen, along with Folklore and DW6: Empires, and it looks like RoF will make the list to... pfft whatever my taste in games rules anyway.
Son1x (on 01 April 2010)
@sexc_abbas
Wow, really? I find the Japanese title (End of Eternity) and boxart much better than the US/Eu one.
sexc_abbas (on 31 March 2010)
BTW, i just love the name of this game, i swear to god im goingto go out and buy the game today just for the name, and this is not a joke !!
sexc_abbas (on 31 March 2010)
i gues this is no time for any devs to release games for the ps3, the power and games it currently has are unstoppable !!!!!!
darthdevidem01 (on 31 March 2010)
WTF it is for 49.99 at my HMV

WTF! The max price games went to was 42.99 here (MW2, uncharted 2, WKC).....FFXIII was 39.99

whats going on
Ghazi4 (on 31 March 2010)
ok soo i bought this game here in UK gonna try it when i get home from this vacation
Wagram (on 31 March 2010)
How many times do devs have to not get this right? Hello, if your game sells like crap, wouldn't your ADVERTISE the next games?
darthdevidem01 (on 31 March 2010)
Ouch, terrible sales :(

I thought SEGA wanted this to be their "Final Fantasy".....wy did they drop the ball on marketing
Marco (on 31 March 2010)
God of War 3, Final Fantasy 13, Yakuza 3, Heavy Rain >>> Resonance of Fate. The sales are okay for Resonance, i think. The konkurrenz are sooo strong. Ps3 have very good games
Hero_time88 (on 30 March 2010)
commercial "big" games should always be multiplatform, but I think that exclusivity works fine for some of the smaller games, especially if they are Japanese.

Look at Cross Edge, bad game, but it sold pretty well for what it was.
palitococo (on 30 March 2010)
@hero_time
Totally agree, i buy it if were exclusive, i dont know why, but i preffer exclusive games.

EU dont like rpgs if not called final fantasy.
Hero_time88 (on 30 March 2010)
Should have been PS3 exclusive like Yakuza 3. Niche games ussually sell better on the PS3 if they are exclusive, probably because the fanbase gives it more attention if that's the case.
Son1x (on 30 March 2010)
Wow, 8.4k on PS3 and 2.4k on 360? Damn this game bombed in Europe.
Zlejedi (on 29 March 2010)
It might have flopped badly in Europe I already see it discounted to 30 pounds and it was released on 26th
zgamer5 (on 28 March 2010)
@Boutros

It's my opinion i expected more from this game. Well expectations are decieving.
zgamer5 (on 28 March 2010)
was hoping for sales like wkc in japan for this game.
Mr Puggsly (on 28 March 2010)
@ Boutros
Also, at the rate its going it should become the 4th best selling Sega game on the PS3 in Japan. Just behind the popular Yakuza series.
ShadowSoldier (on 28 March 2010)
The date to which it was released has hurt it's sales for sure.
Boutros (on 27 March 2010)
@zgamer5

No it's not...
It's currently at 240k (PS360).
It sold more than Demon's Souls and Valkyria Chronicles in Japan.

And it's not like the game was awesomely received.
zgamer5 (on 25 March 2010)
190k for a jrpg by sega in japan is bad.
Drage (on 24 March 2010)
Can't find this game anywhere!
Boutros (on 24 March 2010)
@zgamer5

Why?
The sales are great.
zgamer5 (on 24 March 2010)
pathetic sales in japan
ssj12 (on 21 March 2010)
walmart seems to have delayed placing this on store shelves till tuesday.
iLLmaticV3 (on 15 March 2010)
Picking this up with God of War 3 today!!! can't wait!
divwilson50 (on 14 March 2010)
why is it theres hardly any rpg's. then they all come out at the once.
NSS7 (on 25 February 2010)
Way too low sales. I expect this to become 2nd best JRPG in Japan or at least match WKC sales.
Hoffmole (on 20 February 2010)
I prefer the character design and general artistic direction of this to FF13, even though the latter is technically graphically superior.
Mubtee (on 17 February 2010)
I can't believe they would release it on top of FFXIII
Nik24 (on 13 February 2010)
@g-value

off-topic: Please it's thAN not then.
If you compare stuff, you use "than"!
g-value (on 12 February 2010)
@ outlawauron

Like I've said before, the 2 people who said that Resonance of Fate is better then FFXIII ACTUALLY PLAYED both games where else you and Riot haven't.
taq1109 (on 12 February 2010)
finally finished in 65hrs..i bet that sequel comes out surely....
anyway i recommend this to you if u like strategical battles
outlawauron (on 11 February 2010)
@ Ratix

Having towns makes this the perfect alternative to FF13? wtf?

Also, I agree with Riot on this one. It's crazy to think that Tri-Ace will come close to a mainline Final Fantasy game.
Aprisaiden (on 11 February 2010)
:( its a shame it had such a big drop in sales for week 2. Hopefully it will have some form of legs...
Ratix240sx (on 10 February 2010)
This game is the perfect alt to FFXIII. It has towns.
g-value (on 09 February 2010)
@ Riot Of The Blood

The people who are saying that Resonance of Fate is better then FFXIII is people who have actaully played those games. Taq1109 actually lives in Japan.
taq1109 (on 09 February 2010)
played 50hrs....i think this game is near the SRPG rather than normal RPG
lowkeyoh (on 08 February 2010)
From the standpoint of how it's billed, it seems like it could be more fun than FFXIII. Tri-Ace has always made games with pretty interesting gameplay and combat that I feel has been lacking in Final Fantasy, and while the games aren't as pretty, they are more fun.

TL;DR we'll see when they both come out.
Riot Of The Blood (on 07 February 2010)
From what I've seen FFXIII makes this game look shit. I don't know why you people are claiming it's better than FFXIII when it clearly, clearly isn't. I doubt this game even cracks 80%.
chris1_16 (on 06 February 2010)
I'd order this from play asia.....but, me speak english
Wagram (on 06 February 2010)
How can it be your new final fantasy if you haven't even played the game yet? or even XIII for that matter. >.>
TheConduit (on 06 February 2010)
This is what Final Fantasy should have become (bar some series traits that make if FF)
RareglovE (on 05 February 2010)
just import it over at play asia, this game i far better than ff13
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 05 February 2010)
My new final fantasy.
Wagram (on 05 February 2010)
Final Fantasy games have good story lines now as well. Anyways can't wait for this game!
Hoffmole (on 05 February 2010)
Reminds me of PS1 Squaresoft - Vagrant Story etc. You know, back when Final Fantasy games had good story lines.
TheConduit (on 05 February 2010)
Being released the same day as Final Fantasy 13 in America.
Is that really a good idea for an unknown (probable very good) RPG to release
Ridley (on 05 February 2010)
@fazz, no it is also released on 360.
fazz (on 04 February 2010)
Is this for PS3 only? It looks SO DAMN interesting...
taq1109 (on 03 February 2010)
played 30hrs.......better than FF13 IMO....im serious
taq1109 (on 28 January 2010)
plyed 3hrs....so far so good
Reanbell....kawaii かわいい
nen-suer (on 20 July 2009)
This game could be what i was looking for this gen
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 15 June 2009)
Well now, looks really good, it may very well be on my top 5 fave RPGs this gen with Versus XIII, Valkyria Chronicles, SO4 and the like.

We'll have to wait and see on this one, ... but Sega and Tri-Ace... thats a combo that Cannot be beaten this gen so far.
