This. Square spend way too much time on Versus XIII. Just released it already, so they can start working on KH III.

Which isn't really fair, because the game isn't that bad.
Sure, it's not close to being as good as Uncharted. But it's still enjoyable.

That article states, "These figures do not account for digital sales."
I'd like to believe that more than just a few PC gamers purchased the game through Steam. And that there are more than just a few PC gamers.

They starting living off the FF legacy and now it's bit them in the ***, aside from their gaming endeavours. If they focused like they should have and got Versus out in the current generation, they'd be doing a bit better. SE (Or should I just say Squaresoft) used to put out quality games that were worth the money. Not anymore.

It's a shame that games that sell 3.4 million copies and 3.6 million copies are considered underperformers. I can see sleeping dogs at 1.7 million copies being considered an underperformer but would thought that 3+ million copies each for tomb raider and hitman would be considered decent and those numbers don't include digital sales.

Time for remakes of FFV, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, FVIX, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Legend of Mana, Xenogears, Saga Frontier, Bahamut Lagoon, FF Tactics, Chrono Cross, Vagrant Story, Parasite Eve, Brave Fencer Musashi. Ok well, just FFV through VIII, the Manas, Xenogears and Chrono's will be fine.

I've heard the last Hitman was pretty good...though I haven't played it yet.

Just Cause 2 was one of the more liked games to come out in recent years. It is proof that video games are bad for you because now every time I see an industrial tower I have this insatiable urge to put C4 on it. biggrin.gif Though the story wasn't all that great...I think that is where newer games are failing.

In the past even the worst story lines some how had you caring about the characters. I mean, even if FF7 had been a book I would have been reading it til the early morning hours just to find out what happened next and that story was horrible by most literary standards. However, then you throw in the gems like Xenogears...man, that was one amazing plot line with so many twists, turns, and surprises, but yet some how it all worked amazingly. I am still just shocked there hasn't been a movie made out of it...though it would probably have to be a trilogy. Vagrant Story? The plot was a work of art that starts out simple and snow balls into bigger and better things. So many games that Square(Enix) made in the past would probably of sold quite well had they just been released as book and never made into a game. What happened? Stories seem to start declining as soon as Wada stepped up to the plate. It could be completely unrelated and really it should be unrelated, but it will be interesting to see if story lines start getting better now.

Just don't expect people to pay much more than $20 for it and I know it will profit.

I completely agree with this. Since FF6, I haven't gotten that feeling back and I would be willing to pay big for another game of this type, with a little higher pixel count.
