I think it is, but I'm more interested in getting sales figures for the game. If it doesn't get over a million copies sold by the end of the year, I'm going to be pissed.

This type of game is pretty niche. Its not gonna sell boatloads. 500k is enough to impress me.(and probably be profitable) With Japan alone its already more than half-way there.

1million would make it an extremely successful new IP.

TheGrimOfDeath1181d ago

The developers have already stated that they might want to make a sequel to the game already, I think this is because the sales of the game in Japan surpassed initial figures. So yeah the IP is gonna be really successful with a possible sequel.

Don't know about killer App since all the Game stores in Leicester knew nothing about the game, on release day, they didn't even bother to put it out on shelves and there was zero advertising for it.

When I went to get my pre-order, I had to double check if it was released today and the clerk had to check if they had it.

I hope it sells well. I've never played a game in this genre. I'm new to this type of game but I've already fallen in love with it.

I was in EB Games Tuesday morning(1130) and the game was sold out, even the other EB Games in the area were as well. So I didn't even get my copy, I have to wait until this Tuesday when they get more stock.

I'm not saying my store had a lot of stock but at least it is doing better in some areas

Hanso1181d ago

same for me
I hate MH but i love SS

fei-hung1181d ago

I bought my copy around 1:45pm on Friday. Idiots didn't give me my pre order code so I have to go back to get it.

Game is awesome. I've put about 5-6 hors into it and there is tons mire to do. I haven't even tried the online yet as I'm so into the sp.

I can see one other person in my friend list playing the game. Need to check near and see if there is anyone else in Leicester playing it so I can join them online :)

memots1181d ago

why would you be pissed? How does how many copy sells lessen your enjoyment of the game?
Do you have stock in the developer or made this game?

hkgamer1181d ago

its a multiplayer game. The more people that buy it, the more lively the community will be.

However, 1 mil is asking for a bit too much. I think there is only 5 million vita sold so far right? 20% of vita owners will not buy this game.

knifefight1181d ago

If they sell more copies, the company is more likely to make a sequel.

Is that, like, hard to understand?

Tultras1181d ago

Dude 1mil is considered very successful when it comes to Home CONSOLES, you know? the one with 70+ million userbase.

JeepGamer1181d ago

Feel free to be pissed. Avid Dark Souls player, avid JRPG player, I have access to a Vita. The demo bored me and I never looked back. I'd be surprised if it reaches your lofty goal.

Aceman181181d ago

it is for me, plus any game i deem worthy of spending my own money on is a killer app for me.

to some people it is, just like me ^_^
though this is the type of genre that considered niche in the west...

Myst1182d ago

I think it's a good game and got my friends to get it. So far it's been really enjoyable. If it isn't a killer then it's still worth a play at least.

jwk941181d ago

IGN says no and I have to agree with them. It's a fun game, but it's not a MUST HAVE title right now. I'd sooner re-purchase Gravity Rush. Now there's a great Vita game.

Hicken1181d ago

IGN says no about everything. They're only slightly better than Kotaku, in my eyes, who are only slightly better than quartertothree. Can't figure out how either of the last two haven't been banned yet. And I dunno how IGN gets away with the crap that they pull off, either.

timemuffin1181d ago

Why would you compare QuartertoThree to ign or kotaku? Q23 is basically a blog ran by one person. And banned by what? The N4G community? Thats a dumb idea. Oh and guess what? I know its cool to hate kotaku but I find it pretty entertaining. You know what i would do if I didn't? Not visit the site.

SirBradders1181d ago

Ign didnt even finish the game and didnt even go in depth on multiplayer and dont be a sheep and try and judge something for yourself.

jwk941180d ago

I'm not being a sheep. I AM judging the game for myself since I own it.
