I would have liked more control over the characters, like giving commands individually rather than group commands and you should be able to choose each characters weapons and accessory's but you can't. Otherwise this is a fine game.

They really tried to over-complicate the battle system, but it's still as simple (if not more) as older jRPGs. Voice acting is solid, graphics are just good. It could have used a bit more polish, but the design is great. The only thing that bothers me is the character animations outside of cut-scenes. They're terrible.

just read through the comment SE shipped 490 in 08 than i dont think SE shipped any more in 09. 70k is such a crap shipment... you really cant get much lower than that in 2 markets.... but still that means if they havent shipped any in 09 there are still some sitting on shelves.

480k LT tops.

"A retailer this week price cut Square Enix Co.'s The Last Remnant to under $40 in the latest round of video game price cuts. The retailer is selling advanced orders for the title at $39.99, 33 percent off the $59.99 MSRP."

TLR was price slashed alot. and no retailer has a 20 dollar margin. that money came from out of the retailers pocket. basically the retailer lost money selling the game. No way would retailers restock a game they had to sell for a loss.

The 360 shipped 490k MINIMUM. I think this is selling way faster than IU, as that was overstuffed and then HEAVILY discounted. I dont think the PC version couldve done that well.

As i said before, this is overtracked but people are always so quick to assume more has been shipped, given SEs track record and the time frame, i doubt it

@ egghead

So, they shipped 490k in 08, and, we are already 4 months into 09 and you are trying to tell us it's overtracked. That SE couldn't have shipped more games in 09, and that it couldn't have reached 550k?

I think the sales are pretty accurate.
Message | Report
Egghead posted 18/04/2009, 11:37
Because SE only shipped 490k in 08, and given how they overstuff, it still seems to high.

Yeah this has sold better and WAY faster too, but i just dont see the shipments being sold out THAT quick.

I can't stress this game can be really tough.. expect a lot of level grinding and some of those battles.. you may have to fight several battles before you fight a main boss and you won't get a chance to save until you defeat the boss and those battles can go on for a long time. Party formation and tactics really do play a role in how the fight will end up.

supposidly npd as this title at 118k at the end of jan... sorry but if tlr cant sell well for 2 months with launch and christmas sales i doubt its nearly doubled its sales for the month and a half afterwards.

dont worry though looks like it happened to a bunch of titles, but this was the only one i was claiming was overtracked.

imo it probably sold 1/3 of sales in the second half than it did the first putting it at about 180k for the americas

Well its selling on par with LO in EU, but is WELL below in NA

Offcourse then you factor in VGC adjustments, but still, its not hard to see this game selling 650k-700k, and offcourse the PS3 and PC versions will also help.

Can LO hit a million, i guess the race is back on, but its going to take another year or so

Firstly, this is a UE game so the cost of it isnt going to be that high.

Secondly, the 360 was in a bad state when it released, just fixing that would take another few months, but to then finish off the PC and PS3 game?

Not worth it considering MS were willing to step in and help them promote it. The game has sold well, its likely to hit AT LEAST 600k, and will go onto 700k, as ive said, thats good for any JRPG.

damandan05, im sure they will break even with the lifetime sales of the 360 version, the PC and PS3 sales..........plusn the fat cheque MS wrote SE for getting timed exclusivity.

You people make me laugh, none of us will ever know if it broke even. SE never said so, we don't know the budget. With any game we never know unless they tell us which square hasn't.

This games price was down to 40 bucks within two weeks of release.

Just saying, it will sell like crap on the other systems after the overall impressions given by reviews, and word of mouth.

Shot themselves in the foot, if they waited and released for all three systems they would've made a lot more money.

It broke even a while ago given its use of UE3. Even if they made a loss, the PS3 and PC versions will be the ones that pick up some extra revenue and so profit (not that theyll sell as well though)
