A bit sad knowing it was one of the most anticipated this year, but at the same time, it is a game hugely centered around a big internet community. Probably won't have much gain with the casual crowd like some might have hoped for.

Thats extremely sad for both Kingdom Hearts and Resident Evil. Both are great long awaited games that deserve exceptional lifetime sales. Maybe US and Japan sales will be much better?

If the COMG thread is anything to go by, I wouldn’t get my hopes up too much on Japan.

A great game, but sadly it's not very mainstream. Hope the strong youtube community for the game can help it in the long run.
