Furious Francis from Playeressence.com takes a look at how Xenoblade Chronicles sales numbers point to X on Wii U being a runaway success.
I really hope to see more of "X" during the E3 direct. It's one of my most anticipated games. Absolutely loved Xenoblade Chronicles, put over 140 hours into that game.
Yeah, The wife of one of the directors of the game said there would be some information on the game so I hope so as well. I would also like to see the first in game footage for Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
I know Soraya Saga tweeted the link to the Japanese Direct and the only other time she has done that is when "X" was first shown. So yeah, my hype levels are through the roof right now. And I'm also hoping for some SMT x FE news. I wanna see what the gameplay is gonna be like.
Sales would be a hell of a lot higher if they'd press some more copies. It's ridiculous that you can't find the game anywhere, and when you do it's insane expensive.
Xenogears is my all time favorite game (along with FFVII) so when Xenoblade appear in stores I instantly buy the CE I spent around 75€ but I didn't have a classic controller anyway I buy a Wii just to play this game. So I start playing with the red classic controller from the CE & my journey took around 200 hours until I see the end credits & from start to finish I was always thinking one thing, "man that was money well spent" yep I didnt bored or regret buying it even for a second, the time I spent playing Xenoblade was one of the best experience I have with a JRPG of the last 10+ years. I haven't thought to buy a Wii U till now but I always thought "what if Takahashi release a new Xeno game?" & yes this will be enough reason for me to buy one although I know I will probably never touch it again after I finish this game but still I would do it when the time comes I know it.
I love the fact that you enjoy Xenogears so much, but alongside FFVII. You might be just a couple of years younger than me since FFVI and Chrono Trigger should be up there:P I talked my girlfriend into playing Xenogears with me this winter (she`s not even a casual player) and she loved it. The story that is, fighting and exploring and the graphics were not her cup of tea. After we finished I read another analysis which I highly recommend: http://xenoverse.xenotensei... Support Takahashi, one of few that makes gaming wiser.
If Nintendo releases it worldwide. Doesn't have to be screamed at. Again.
Uh it coming worldwide. It was announced in Wii U USA Direct
Believe Xenoblade was announced for worldwide release, then Nintendo changed their mind until it was changed again.
the first game sold better in North America than anywhere else. We're getting the sequel for sure.
X is certainly the game i am the most excited about across all platforms.
Cant wait, I have to beat Xenoblade first, this game is massive, Im still on the Leg section I think haha
Lol, holy shit. Then you definitely have a LOOOONG way to go. Bionis' Leg is barely the beginning, dude, you need to make it all the way to the Mechonis! :P
haha damn, ill try to marathon it before the last of us comes out
I hope Nintendo makes the game available for the Wii U either as an HD port or just simply start manufacturing the Wii version again. I can't find it at fair price. I got Last Story for $39.99 months ago but people are trying to sell this game for $100 and up.
This game always got my attention and already in the 'must have' list if i buy WiiU. But i applause what nintendo 1st party did with JRPG genre for WiiU. They sure don't forget JRPG fans who hungry for more amazing JRPG title on console. Hopefully, sony will follow nintendo footsteps by reviving their classic JRPG such as wild arms, legend of dragoon, dark cloud, alundra, or arc the lad for PS4 ^^
That's not really a massive number. They can't rely on the sequel as a system seller. Any Pokemon or Mario game easily outsells it, and their development costs are far less.
Either you didn't read the article or you didn't understand the point of the article.
X will likely prompt me to get a Wii U. That being said, the article assumes that the "sequel" to a well-received title late in the life of one console will garner similar sales early in the life of that console's successor. A successor which is currently struggling, I should add. For what was sent West, the numbers are good. Pretty close to 100% were sold. But we can't be certain how many would have sold if there were more copies to sell. Maybe it would have topped out at right around a million. Maybe it would have sold more. But it can be argued that the high demand it sees now is due in no small part to the low supply. Not trying to knock the game at all. I just don't know how much we can glean as far as what X will do on Wii U.
Xenoblade is my choice for best game of this generation my choice
And mine, buddy. And mine. :3
Boy, am I glad that I bought a copy of Xenoblade in Walmart (don't ask me why in the hell was that game in a Walmart, but it was... but I'm not in the U.S). Yes, it's absurdly impressive that Xenoblade sold ALL of the copies that were out. Now it's literally impossible to find it new in any store in the world. There just aren't any. 800,000 copies sold for a game that was so limited in its availability is quite a big feat. I LOVE Xenoblade. So much, in fact, that when I got my Wii stolen (along with my Wii U, PS3, Xbox and PC and a lot of controllers and games), I bought another Wii U and re-started Xenoblade (which luckily for me, wasn't stolen). I'm now 55 hours in on the game (first time I was 45 hours in), and damn... THIS GAME ROCKS. Rocks so much, in fact, that it has become my absolute favorite game of all time. Having been a gamer for about 25 years now, that's no small feat for me. And because of Xenoblade, Monolith Soft's Project X is now the game I'm the most excited about. Yes, even more than the next Mario 3D, or Grand Theft Auto V, or Mario Kart U, or the next Zelda, or any other game out there. I WANT PROJECT X SO BAD! I really, really hope Monolith Soft manages to make this new game as good as Xenoblade, if not better. I hope I don't get disappointed, my expectatives for X are absurdly high now. ;_;
Hey, do you mind if i ask some question? You said recently you started playing Xenoblade again on WiiU. So how's the graphic, is there any different / change when you play it on WiiU? Cause i'm planning to buy a WiiU, well maybe next year after the price drops, and hopefully with a copy of Xenoblade too ^^
Wii version looks the same. Wii U gives you option change the resolution to 480p too.
When I was playing it the first time, I started it on the Wii, but a while later I transferred everything to my first Wii U and continued playing on that console. I honestly didn't notice any difference at all, on the Wii U it looked identical as it did when running on the Wii. However, there's quite a lot of people stating that they've appreciated a big difference between running Wii games on Wii U vs. Wii. My theory for these discrepancies is that the experience may vary depending on the TV set of each owner. Here's the thing: basically, all HDTVs have a upscaler that allows SD content to be artificially upscaled to run properly on the HD sets. Some HDTVs have damn good upscalers, whereas others are bad or terrible at it. So maybe my (now stolen) HDTV had a pretty good upscaler, and maybe that's why I didn't notice any difference. Whereas, for the people that DID see a vast improvement, it could be because their TVs weren't so good at upscaling, but the Wii U did the upscale that the TV couldn't. I hope what I said makes sense. Of course, it's just my theory. The only absolutely sure thing I can tell you is that, no, I didn't notice any graphical difference when playing Xenoblade on neither of my 2 Wii U consoles. :P
Holy crap dude you had all your stuff taken? It pains me as a gamer to hear this. You have my sympathy man.
my friend I think just like you, but don´t worry theres 90% chance that monolith give us again the best game of the next gen. I´m buying a wii U just for this.
The Wii had a huge install base. Does the WiiU?
Before you guys cryed the wii only had casual players and now your saying xenoblade sold well because of the base. I hate to tell you this but xenoblade wasn't a game for grandma. You have one bubble why did i just feed the troll....someone slap me.
@ Canary........ Really!! because maybe we should look at older post?
Xenoblade Chronicles sales numbers had nothing to do with the install base of the Wii. Not to mention we don't know where the Wii U's install base will be by the time this game comes out next year.
I don't own a WiiU yet but that X game is preety high on my list to play. I get a wiiu to play it after i see some more of it.
I will buy X on day 1.. Monolith soft has my support 100%.. Most of nintendos exclusives are awesome
o-o ...DivineAssault...? ...You feelin ok buddy?
im fine.. I support good nintendo games.. I just hate nintendos hardware & philosophies
