[QUOTE] I was tempted to get the JP download but I thought I'd wait for the US release and get it at retail, mainly because I know ASW will probably put a bunch of DLC for it. And generally, JP PSN cards are rather expensive to get for me. [/QUOTE] I have enough other games to keep me busy, but yeah, with this and a lot of games, DLC is a major obstacle to importing. I need a site that does digital delivery based on current yen exchange rates. Hmmm...actually, japan-codes.com isn't looking too bad right now. I still don't understand why the company with the region lock (Nintendo) is the only one that lets you use non-Japanese credit cards. [QUOTE]Sales[/QUOTE] The Blazblue thing is mostly just confusing to me, because, even having purchased every iteration of Blazblue, I can't remember which is which by name. It seems like this would be an obstacle to uneducated consumers. I've stopped looking at sales figures on Japanese console releases, because it's too depressing. There doesn't seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel and I can't cook up an optimistic scenario whatsoever anymore. Internationally, it isn't quite as bleak, though, and I think Xrd might pull decent numbers outside of Japan. It's reached the point where "niche Japanese games" can sell much more in America than they do in their home country. Xrd has good press over here, so I'm hoping Japanese numbers can be typically irrelevant. [QUOTE]Maybe consumers are like me and really torn between getting it for PS3 or getting it for the PS4 collecting dust but forcing me to purchase yet another stick... Unless you can use the Virtua Stick HG on PS4? [/QUOTE] When I asked my friends if they were getting Destiny, they all said "Well, I don't have a PS4, so no...", so that sort of confusion might contribute a little as well. As for sticks working or not working, well, I don't know if you were being sincere or not, but it's on the developers' end. The Skullgirls team said it's possible to program for PS3 joysticks on PS4 (which they are doing), but no one else has bothered. As I was sort of mentioning before, your only hope is to use a convertor/PC setup, like with a [URL=http://controllermax.com/]Cronusmax[/URL]. It's frustratingly complicated, but people with laptops don't seem to mind and it works splendidly on [i]other[/i] consoles. If I hadn't nabbed that HRAP, I would've been dangerously close to being frozen with indecision myself, unwilling to play on an inferior console [i]or[/i] with an inferior controller.
