Someone Out There Loves Love Plus

Konami’s virtual girlfriend game, Love Plus, went on sale this past Thursday. And one 2ch user snapped up eleven copies of Love Plus. (Thanks for the tip Gino!!)

 

Why? Seems like he or she wanted to get all of the pre-order bonuses. Softmap bundled copies of Love Plus with postcards while Wondergoo tacked on a cushy mat. Each copy of Love Plus has a MSRP of 5,800 yen ($62) which brings the total up to 63,800 yen or $685. That’s a lot of love for Love Plus!

    I can’t wait to see the media creates/famitsu numbers.

      First day at retail it saw a 47% sellthrough with 22,000 units. I think it’s safe to say word of mouth will help give this decent legs. We’ll see.

    He/she doesn’t even have the “letters” from the girls, pins and all the phone cards, so I hope this individual has an extra 20,000 yen laying around.
    You know, he/she could have probably saved about half the cost if they just went on Yahoo Japan Auctions. They’re selling these Love Plus swags by the bundles and would have gotten a great deal on all of this. His/her loss can be your gain!
    Now you can’t say you can’t buy love! Or get a girlfriend, for that matter…

    And we thought we have it bad w/ our Gamestop exclusive pre-order bonus (I know these are mostly just telephone cards w/ different designs and all).. Reviews seem to be really good (temporarily sold out on Amazon), like it makes you feel all lovey dovey, like the old TokiMemo experience, except requiring a little high maintenance. These are the bittersweet anime high school days that we all envy.. I can’t wait to get this game once I get my $5 coupon from PA.

    Looks like (s)he’s been doing the same thing with various DS editions? a DS, 7 DSLites and a DSi? How many does one individual need?

      I’m going to chalk this off to Japanese people not knowing what to do with their money. They can’t really invest in property. I guess that leaves luxury items.

    Retailer-exclusive preorder bonuses need to die.

    So when can we expect the Siliconera review telling us the path to true love? : P
