    Is “copies shipped” the new pr bs publishers have come up with?

      People are easily moved by fact and number.

      No “BS” here. My copy shipped out yesterday morning and will arrive tomorrow~

        I think “shipped” means they shipped the copies to retailers and etailers, what effectively means nothing because it doesn’t say how many copies those actually sold.

          I wouldn’t say it means nothing, but it is a bit of a spin yes. Retailers generally order a number of estimated units they expect to sell. Obviously it doesn’t always end up being accurate as you can see by news of games selling through X% it’s available stock. We’ll really only know true sales when the Media Create sales charts go up next week, but it’s still a point of reference as to what it “may” sell.

            Dammit, beat me to it :p

            Yeah, just wait until the Media Crate sales figures come out before jumping the gun, Patchy.

      Publishers are paid based off the metric

      New? They’ve been doing it for as long as I’ve been following this industry (and that’s been a while…).

      It’s not just BS either. It’s much easier to measure shipped numbers than to go around to every store and figure out how many were sold.

    Most of my friends on Twitter have it, mine will be here tomorrow

    Lovely now we hope for a US release! If not I’ll jump on importing this gorgeous piece of work. To those of you who are already importing/received your copy have fun!

  • Kevadu

    I’ve really curious what the Vita/PSP split is going to be like on this one.

  • PrinceHeir
