Final Fantasy XIII Import Pre-Orders Tops This Generation
US gamers have less than three months to wait after Final Fantasy XIII launches in Japan on December 17. However, for the truly hardcore, that's just too long.
According to the Unofficial Final Fantasy Site citing Play-Asia, pre-order numbers for FFXIII are through the roof. They're "the best this generation thus far" and the hotly anticipated RPG "has far outdone any other big Japanese releases this year." It's not surprising to learn that Bayonetta is up there (it seems great), but it's also no big shock to hear that the biggest import of the generation thus far is arguably the biggest title Japan has produced in some time. Remember, the Japanese iteration of FFXIII is region-free, so this is likely to generate much bigger pre-order numbers; you don't have to worry about anything...provided you understand Japanese. So if you absolutely can't wait until March and you're willing to pay extra to snag what is destined to be another classic in the legendary franchise, feel free to pre-order the import now. It'll cost you $95 plus shipping and while that may seem a little steep to some, there's just no stopping the insatiable desire of the die-hard fan. And there ain't nothin' wrong with wanting to play the game as soon as humanly possible; I'd do it myself if I wasn't so swamped with games...and besides, at my age, time moves at a ridiculous speed. As far as I'm concerned, March is tomorrow.
But anyway, just thought you'd like to know, and hey, maybe you want to add to that ever-rising pre-order import statistic...
