I bought this game last week, and I must say I LOVE it! It's different, it's stylish, and it's a damn awesome RPG. Square Enix stole my heart 8D.

I hope it keeps selling because I want to seek more of this game. I haven't finished it yet, but it seems like this game is desinged to have one storyline. Oh well.

If you were to add its Japan sales, this game is at 380k with US & JAP. combined. The Europe sales should have it at 500k already.

The only reason the Japan sales aren't here is because it's called It's A Wonderful Life over there.

The Source may not have said those words exactly, I may have read them wrong.

However, someone here posted that the Japan sales of TWEWY is at around 200k, and the US sales is 140k. To be extremely conservative, I'll say the others sales is 60k. So the game is probably at 400k. T

The legs will definitely carry it past 500k.

If combined this should be at 350k.

Your loss. Best game Square Enix has made in a long time. Better then any Console game they've made in a long time in my opinion.

Reminds me of the days of the SNES when they couldnt release a bad game.

Also its $30 at Circuit City this week so any people who want a deal go get it. Or price match I guess.
