While one PS3 exclusive ( inFAMOUS 2 ) managed to secure a postion in the UK’s top 5 selling games last week, sadly, Level-5's mmorpg failed to break the top 40.
hands up anyone that is suprised by this. WKC series is a dud
The series is a good series Its not there fault the only thing people buy are shooters and racing games there or shooters and action games here RPGs,fighters, puzzle, platformers, action-adventure,vns have always been under appreciated.
I didn't even know it was out, I'm going to go and buy this now.
Ha, same here, Zootang. Me go buy now.
I'll put my hand up, but at the same time it's only been out 4 days in the UK.
I'll be picking it up when it releases here in the states. I liked the first one and im sure i'll enjoy part 2. Again I don't let others decide for me what games I should buy, and I sure as hell ain't going to allow them to dictate which games I should enjoy and like. This is another problem I have with this gen its all about sales, sales, sales. Im glad there are some devs out there who don't let that get in the way of what they want make.
You're a dud
what do you expect? jrpgs don't have mass appeal like racers and shooters do all over the world.
White Knight Chronicles came out at the wrong time. We'd already had Final Fantasy XII which was extremely similar (and better) to it/ than it. Either way, I have no desire to play the second one at least until I've beaten the first which I kind of got about half way through and got stuck on a poorly explained quest.
It's the UK...who cares? They don't even play jrpgs.
They also happen to be the largest gaming market in Europe. So there's that.
-sighs- They really dont. Europe is pretty much PC gaming. A vast minority actually play and enjoy JRPGs.
Europe may be PC gaming but the UK is almost all console gaming, so to say that "A vast minority actually play and enjoy JRPGs" then you would be pretty wrong.
Its been marked UP at retail because its going to be a niche title, that means few ppl pick it up at full price.
Yes I'm guilty of that, I'm gonna pay 38pounds for it.
Is 38 pounds OVER paying? I thought all games came out around that price. :/
Exactly why I'm waiting Jack. I loved the first and will likely love the second, but even though I wanted it day one I have always thought that it will get a price drop rather quickly.
Since when WKC2 is a MMORPG? I think i missed something.... i know about the multi online, but... MMORPG?
It's not an mmo, its a jrpg that lets you do quest and meet up in player-made towns online
I may be picking this up considering it comes with an enhanced version of the first game. I'll need to see some reviews, but with a slow summer...it may be a good time filler.
Not surprised. Looking forward to WKC2's release over here.. it can't come sooner. I've started seen alot of my friends popping on w/ their WKC2 copies D:
