.hack sells like mad in Japan
The Playstation 2 RPG .hack has reportedly sold out in just four days of release in Japan, an estimated 120,000 copie. The game is the first title in Bandai's planned four-part series. With the selected tastes overseas, experts believe this to be a very solid sign and expect the game to be a success in the United States as well. Bandai hopes for total worldwide sales of the .hack PS2 games to exceed 1,000,000 units once the US release comes into play. Hopefully, the lack of hype on .hack won't stop people from buying this very promising looking title.
.hack is expected for release in October for North America.
