    i always wonder why japan uses “the best” labels instead of just lowering the price.

    i don’t like the cover arts to be honest. :(

      Same reason games go to the greatest hits in the west. The price is lowered, but they reprint the game in the new greatest hits box.

      I agree though, I have always found that kinda silly too.

        actually some of the greatest hits of PS3(at least in the US) they had a “tape” on the top and once you remove the plastic it comes off with the tape as well.

        now you get a normal edition without the ugly art :D

        wish more companies do that.

          I’m not a big fan of the red labels/cases either.

    Let’s see how time travellers fares this week. I’m expecting a small hit, about 70k copies sold on the 3ds, with some 20k-ish copies sold on the vita. The PSP sales for this game will surely take a hit, since it’s actually being released next day, so I’d say….15k copies or so for the PSP?

    We’ll see in a couple o’ days :P

    EDIT: Perhaps 70k copies is a tad too much…I really don’t know, I’ll lower that to 50k copies on it’s opening week.

    Time Traveler probably do decent.
