Would like to try this, but I can't get the first one on the PS, and I can't start with the second game in the series.

Its like saying you cant play ff6 because you didnt play ff5. + OT2 is by far superior, i would rather start with him, i wish this one was the first of the franchise.

Solid sales, I haven't played it yet but really enjoyed the first one. When Phil opens up the checkbook to get it on gamepass, it will bring in some more revenue as well.

the second game is much much better, the only thing I don't like is that I have the perfect team up with the cleric and mage at night time, and I feel like any other combo is way weaker (you can start each fight with augmented stats)

what i mean is the game is actually quite easy with those two spell casters in your party, and quite hard without them, I didn't feel that way in the first game

Really great sales, but somewhat disappointed because the first one sold 3 million, and over 1 million on Switch only after few weeks. Maybe we are not getting a sequel for Octopath

Octopath 1 had a very staggered release.
Switch only, then windows a year later, then stadia a year later, THEN xbox a year later.

As opposed to PS5/switch/pc all at once.
