I'm glad we are getting Pirate Warriors 1/2.

So I'll take what we can get, and put my hand over my heart for the ones we can't.

This is exactly the reason why region locking is wrong. Namco Bandai make a dumbass move to not get more money, Nintendo region lock absolutely everything with their name on it, gamers lose out.

Looked like crap anyway. Hardly any one piece fans in murrica, too.

Hardly any One Piece fans? Are you serious? The ratings that show drags in makes American television look like child's play, it has fans all over the world. One Piece aside, anime in itself has MILLIONS of fans in the US, and Canada. Millions more all around the world. Region locking is stupid. Japanese developers have no idea how much they would make with PS3, and 360 releases in the rest of the world. Especially with big names like One Piece. I personally am waiting for a Hunter x Hunter video game, or a Shingeki No Kyojin game. Then again they'll probably have the region locking slapped on without one single thought about the millions of fans around the world that would love to play them. Rant aside don't be stupid, One Piece has fans everywhere, and probably has the largest manga/anime fanbase ever, do not underestimate that series.

EDIT. Probably because it wasn't advertised, I didn't know it was coming out until the day it was out. If people advertised the game properly it would have sold well, and it was advertised horrendously.

Don't market your games, don't expect revenue. Simple as that. Take a look at Alan Wake. Fantastic game, cult classic for sure, and not near enough sales to show it. Granted it sold enough to make it's profit, but you get my point. Advertise wrong, and the sales will suffer.

Pirate warriors didnt sell very well here, so why would this?

Sad because your avatar is an Ussop cosplayer.

krontaar1980d ago

SonyPS41980d ago
