    sigh look like I’m not getting my old ace combat game back.

    Would have wanted a bit more for dark soul too, but still pretty good

      @mye89: Nope, probably will not see another good Ace Combat game. They sold out their fans just like Zipper did when they made SOCOM 4 into that hideous… thing. Zipper paid the price for pissing off their core audience.

    They didn’t release the Tales of Graces F numbers…

    That’s concerning :\

      @RedWolfe: I don’t think it was within the time period. Naruto and Armored Core V aren’t there either.

      • RedWolfe

        @Sal Romano: Oh ok. That makes me feel a better.

        I really hope it did well. I was finally able to pick up my copy but its still sealed because I haven’t had time to play it.

    I’m curious to see what the split is between PS3 and 360 on Dark Souls. I’m sure they’ll never tell us though.

      @FearMonkey:
      the PS3 version sold approx 1m copies and the 360 sold 450k. Japan played a huge part in the PS3 sales (about 350k).

    Congrats to From! Dark Souls was probably my favourite game I played last year!
