however when most stores have about 5 and are pre-ordering 10, it's not quite as impressive.

although the ps3 will sellout for the first few months anway, just like the 360.

TheMART6200d ago

With little to sell, it's sold out fast yeah.

That's rather a weakness from Sony production then a strenght from PS3 in sales.

...not to mention this story was posted between 1 and 2 days ago. I had the first heads-up, and there were a few articles yesterday.

Hardly surprising givin the measly amount of consoles for launch

Darth Gamer6199d ago

No Kidding, we're only getting 400k. This isn't even news. If they didn't sell out in minutes, Now that would be news.

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake19h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga13h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx16h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga9h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H912h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

What about that Forspoken Tw*t

MrChow66614h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens5213h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

Christopher11h ago(Edited 11h ago)

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens5210h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner8h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

Nerdmaster22h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot16h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster4h ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.

BrainSyphoned14h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H912h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold

BlaqMagiq114h ago

Except Squall has actual character development.

gold_drake12h ago(Edited 12h ago)

the "watever" is only present in the english localisation.
so your argument doesnt rly ... stand imo.

Nerdmaster4h ago

Good for you that you could enjoy the japanese version. That's not the case for me and the majority of people here, though.
