  • Wow Sengoku Basara sales on the PS3 crush the sales on the Wii, that game needs to hurry, I want to see how truly awesome it is.

    • Kris

      I think there’s a demo out on the US PSN, actually!

    • It’ll continue to crush the Wii version probably too… I’ll probably import the PS3 version because lame Capcom took out the Japanese audio in the U.S. version… silly Capcom.
