final fantasy + xbox 360 games?
I wouldn't be surprised if most (or all, who knows?) of you are familiar with Final Fantasy 13. Is anyone buying it on release? I'm just curious, as I've never seen a series that attracts so many people, even with little information about it.
For example, a friend of mine has had both the 360 and ps3 version on preorder since it was possible to put an order in, which was months ago. Have they bothered with previews? No, they don't believe they're accurate. Good reviews from someone whose played the Japanese release? Nope! Are they buying the game (twice) based on the fact it's Final Fantasy? You bet! Bear in mind that buying both copies of the game will set them back £80. Even then, that's assuming they didn't buy the collector's edition...which they may have done, because it's Final Fantasy and the collector's edition is worth it! Interestingly, my friend isn't a fanboy of the series in the slightest.
This series blows my mind - I can only imagine how much profit they're gonna make from people insta-ordering, considering they (allegedly) sold a million copies on release day. Considering each cost around Y5000 (I believe), that's a lot.
...As a kind of aside, any recommendations for 360 rpgs of any origin? I'm...mildly worried I may have exhausted the rpg library for it. ): I've played the big-name ones (basically, everything Squeenix released, the Bethesda games, Tales, Fable...), but are there some hidden gems I'm not aware of? Finding older games at my local store is kind of awkward, considering it's about 9 parts Gears of War/Halo to anything else. :L
