    I hope Suikoden sells greatly domestically, so to boost up chances of a slim, almost nonexistant western localization.

    The game is awesome and it’s a shame it’s slipping under so many radars. Suikoden is one of the greatest rpg series ever created, a true mammoth rpg from the ps1/ps2 era, and I really hope it makes a big return with this PSP game.

    Great to see Gravity Rush do so well. Hope it helps boost Vita’s sales.

      @Sal Romano: Oh it totally well man. But, what I don’t get is, why is it going to be called Gravity Rush here in the states, but not Gravity Daze?

      • Sal Romano

        @Finalshoryuken: Not sure. Liked Gravity Daze a lot better. Oh well, at least the game is the same!

      @Sal Romano: Yup! Really glad it got awesome scores. Hopefully it’ll sell just as well. I’d hate to see the developer of such a wonderful game get closed down.

    Im hoping we get some info on the review. Specially game length and if the game mechanics change enough not to get old.

    Ouch. Too bad for Sumioni….the concept was interesting. Guess it wasn’t enough to carry the game in the end

    Sigh what’s up with all the interesting jap game coming out for portable? They could at least put those on PSN and wii network. And no the lack of touchscreen/gyro sensor/spawning portal of hatred or w/e wouldn’t affect the game, I have yet to play a single portable game where that couldn’t be replicated with an analogue stick.

  • punkmike

    Damn! I forgot about Sumioni. The scores aren’t bad at all, but I can only guess that the amount of content it packed was a little insubstantial. I don’t know much about much about number ratings, but a 29/40 doesn’t sound bad.
