Famitsu hands out near-perfect score to Sony Japan's new title in first review. Konami's new Suikoden game gets its first score as well.
great score. let's hope that the sales reflect that quality. it may even help to shift units (just a 'may' though)
bubble up. anyway, this game is amazing and im buying it first day
@GribbleGrunger There isn't much faith in this game coming from SCE, SCEE will make it available as DD only, killing like what 50% chances of people to know it or even buy it? in Japan no one cares about it, but that's because it's not called Monster Hunter :P and SCEA will give a s*** about anything Vita related as they did with PSP, so buy it if you want it but don't expect anything else...
I really hope so.. Suikoden if a tough game to challenge in terms of selling a copy of the game despite the score because of the fan base and it's coming out in a much cheaper system. I hope Sumioni and Gravity Daze do well on the sales chart.
If I were getting a vita, I'd get this game first (yes over even Uncharted) cause this is the only game that truly caught my eye in the E3 vita trailer. Good to know I have good taste I guess.
i was excited for gravity rush since seeing it at E3. it looks unique and and it looks like it using most of the systems features pretty well.
Not saying the game's good or bad, but does anybody take Famitsu review scores seriously ?
I think it's like the ign of Japan. Where a hardcore gamer won't take much credit to its review score but for the average not so serious gamer a good review could swing their interest. I could be wrong though
It's pretty much regarded as "a magazine for children" here. They're famous for not giving anything a low score.
Here's a Japanese forum post about it, translated into English: http://aya.shii.org/2011/11... "Exactly, which makes me wonder why they check Famitsu, too." ("They" meaning foreigners, i.e., you) "Of course it’s fine, Famitsu reviewed it." (Meaning "of course the game got a high score") "These are all advertisements disguised as reviews." Etc.
LOL! sound EXACTLY how the west gamers talk about IGN,GS, Edge, GT... "If you take the “com” (soul) and “shin” (honesty) from “Famicom Tsushin”, you get “Famitsu”"(like saying you cant spell ignorant without IGN) "These are all advertisements disguised as reviews" "I’m shocked that they gave high scores to Culdcept despite the game-breaking bugs"(change Culdcept to Skyrim) "But isn’t CoD:MW3 absolute garbage?That’s supposed to be the pinnacle of western gaming? rofl" "That argument sounds about right to me. Anyone who goes by their reviews are morons" "I wonder how long they actually play each game they review"
Well you re not forced to trust a publication whatever it is. and just make your own opinion with the demo.. Its better than to cry about review scores "just because " without a proper reason .. Don't like famitsu ? don't follow it ..don't read it .. just grab the demo and make your own opinion.. No matter what you guys think , it's still a great place for infos.
Gravity Daze is a new IP.. so I think what they felt about the game was "legit".. no bias..
great score for a launch game! im so excited
Sweet,I'm really looking forward to this game. My most anticipated Vita title by far.
May end up being the best handle game of the year.
Sweet nectar. This is my most anticipated game for the Vita. Still though...screw Kotaku.
Can't wait for Gravity Daze. Please launch already!
the big sleeper hit for Vita? I hope so!
i knew gravity daze was going to be good, ever since i saw the first gameplay/trailer for it :D cant wait to play this game from one my favorite studios >:D
The Cursed Crusade (PS3) – 6/7/6/7 [26/40] Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki (PSP) – 7/8/7/8 [30/40] Gravity Rush – 10/9/9/10 [38/40] Sumioni (PSV) – 7/7/7/8 [29/40] VitaminX Detective B6 (PSP) – 7/8/7/6 [28/40] Ouch, the new Suikoden scores a full point below average. There goes NA's chances of getting this one.
this game looks good.. getting it for sure when i get my vita (sadly thats going to be on july.. since im going usa in my winter vacations, but ima have summer vacations xd). Im waiting till jully cause no chances that im paying over 500/600$ to get it here :x
Forget Suikoden handheld I want Suikoden VI on console.
Any news on the uk release date guys? Looks sooo unique! Want!
The Vita launches with a killer App then 2 months later it launches with another one. So far I am very impressed with the Vitas library and line up. XperiaRay
But an almost perfect score is promising none-the-less. It always did look to me like the Vita's killer-app.
. Let Gravity Rush be an English launch game too...
It is!!!! :) At least English American.
Its dated for a May release in the US. Sadly, the English version won't be available at launch. Man... I can't wait for Gravity Rush myself. Unless Sony comes out with an English/Chinese (R3) version like they did with Uncharted: Golden Abyss in Asia, that was available at the same time as the Japanese version.
i heard it is for EU, but PSN download only!
Has sony actually confirmed the date for eu launch? Some places say 22nd of feb which is very unlikely and now comments above state a date way off of that! I assumed it would be in the launch window of the console atleast
im gonna wait for other reviews than famitsu after what they score FF XII-2 and what the western critic review the game ill wait too see. still gonna get d game nonetheless but im juss making a point here.
I'm not a fan Playstations, I'm not a fan of handhelds either, and I'm certainly not a fan of the PSP. But I have to admit, when I saw the trailer for Gravity daze/Rush, I couldn't help but think "I want to play this game." I actually want to buy a Vita just for this game now...providing it lives up to the hype :)
I think it's nice to see a game like that again: a true killer app that looks so good, you buy the system just for that one game. That's how the game industry took off(Mario, Sonic, Street Fighter, Streets of Rage, e.t.c.) not from consumer loyality and high specs.
I'm getting a Vita as soon as this releases in the US. The game looks brilliant and is gorgeous.
One of the main reasons I'm getting a Vita, this game can't come soon enough.
unfortunately they lost all credibility with the ffxiii-2 review. still will be picking this up tho (from psn), if the demo doesn't suck.
