Holy crap! 200,000 sales lifetime? Not
too bad for a game of this caliber. MS
should really invest a bit more in low
budget Japanese games. As in, they
should bring more of their Japanese
developed games to NA, they seem to
outprofit their Japanese counter part

liked 2X, but the art direction was much
better in this one I thought.
