I can't see myself ever purchasing one, but they will sell regardless of my vote.

well, i got my female friends playing game with super smash bros, after 4 or 5 weeks, they were my best training partners on the game, today they are as good as the rest of my group and even win the tournaments we make...

heck only after i showed them super smash that they started to like games, one of them even dug up a old PSone and it's playing all the RPGs i had for it...

it's a matter of showing the girls something that they will like...

just like i made with my parents, i can't not even win one race in mario kart if i play with my dad...
