thats basically the route im taking for all the europe releases. i really dont know what to believe when it comes to nintendo so im just gonna import now instead of waiting on them to make a decision with the american releases.

Yes, because throwing lots of cash for the marketing of this game in a region where it'll probably sell less if not the same as in America is your idea of a business oportunity, right? Please don't you ever insult our intelligence again Mr. Fils-Aime.

Whenever I read anything about this game I think:
"What a waste..."

Its on the Wii, where not that many users are interested in it, Nintendo could care less (and this one confirms it...)...and so on....thats my opinion about this would/could do much better on X360 or the PS3 or both.

It's a new Nintendo IP.... that's like saying Mario should be on the 360 or PS3. It ain't and wouldn't ever happen. "Nintendo should make new IP's" "Nintendo doesn't make any new game series and just rely on Zelda and Mario" etc etc and then when they do, it's a waste and your not gunna buy it because it is on the Wii.
People are so confusing >.<

Last time I've read, it was published by Nintendo, not owned (but if it is, IT IS STILL A WASTE IMO) and developed by Monolith if I misinterpret it and it is a new Nintendo IP (wich would be one of the few in last DECADE) I stand corrected. If it is Monolith IP (wich made the Xeno series - Xenosaga and all that...well those were the main devs of the first game but got off from SE for whatever the reason they left...), then its even a BIGGER WASTE.

And its such a waste because Nintendo went casual with the Wii and the one RPG who has a hardcore appeal isnt being pushed how it should be, trying to be what it COULD be. If that isnt a waste of a good game, I dont know what it is....

Lets see here in North America there is a slow down of Jrpg's me giving them cash is a business transaction whats so hard about that.
Stealth2k  +   1646d ago
slow down?

I dont have enough money for them all. They come in like a flood.

The British dubbing is pretty funny. I wonder if they will re-dub it for American release.
Deadman_Senji  +   1646d ago
So Europe is their testing ground? It's funny that Reggie's being such a retard about an actual GAME which is what Nintendo should care about anyway...yet he had absolutely no problem promoting and pushing Wiifit.

What a fucking tool

I have no faith in this guy's words. Xenoblade (and The Last Story) will be critically acclaimed, but regardless of the sales, which I predict will be low, they just giving false hope.

Nintendo of America. They always give ya that "i dont know what the hell is going on" feeling dont they?
Its truly sad, if not for Skyward Sword there would be zero quality titles due out for the Wii this year. Nintendo of America wont even throw a few imports our way to satisfy us until the WiiU comes out.

I want Xenoblade in North America

Don't want to hear this bullshit. They lost my business with the stunt they already pulled in regards to this game.
