@pedro Recognisable character additions leads to increased interest, increased interest leads to more purchases of the game, more purchases of the game leads to increased word of mouth and popularity of the game, which essentially leads to further increase in sales.

@barker It doesn't take into account digital sales, so the actual overall number would be higher.

Isn't chainsaw lollipop a big hit in Japan? She'd be an interesting character, so perhaps Juliet?

You want to boost sales in japan?

 

A Final Fantasy rep is essential. (Best selling in 2011)

A Persona rep (Bestselling this year)

 

According to those stats maybe even a AC rep would help.

Unfortunately a Final Fantasy rep probably won't happen. Despite the fact that it would help a lot.

I love that Japanese Stephen Fry just sounds like he's reading the news, like every time Sackboy throws out a lvl 2 or 3, he somehow tunes into a Japanese news broadcast in the process :smileytongue:

Those are pretty good numbers then. I'd even go as far as to say that the game is a success.

It's by no means a bad figure, but it's on the low side for some third party studios who consider allowing reps of their franchises in.

True, it's a shame because they need that 3rd party support for the game to become a success.

It's a real Catch-22 situation, since 3rd party devs won't include their characters unless the game is more successful, but the game won't be more successful until it has those 3rd party characters D:
