  • Hoshi星

    Got three japanese game pre-ordered
    Project Diva f
    Senran Kagura Burst
    Neptunia V

    My wallet was ready.

    • Barbarian3671

      I have pre-ordered:
      Senran Kagura Burst
      Devil Summoner Soul Hackers
      Sengoku Basara HD Collection
      Kami-jigen Game Neptune V

      While my wallet was ready, and I made the pre-orders not on the same day,
      he still was near death. Though, since I did it a pretty long time ago, he’s fine already. Oh, my dearest friend in this life – Wallet.

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    1 PSV game vs 9 PSP games, goodness, it sucks when a system has to compete against its predecessor~.

  • SirRichard

    Tales of Graces f at last, just exactly when I do not have money. There’s that Day One edition out of my reach.

  • DesmaX

    Can’t wait to hear that Neptunia V Soundtrack

  • Altritter

    It’s a pretty big week in every region, looks like. GW2 is already great, although the Japan release I’m most hype for is the AGE game.

  • Eddie

    Has anyone heard any news on Soul Hackers getting a release stateside? 

    • Grenalie

      No news but it has a huge chance of coming over.

      • Eddie

        Hopefully we get it, I was hoping we got Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, but that never happened. Here’s to hoping!

        • Grenalie

          We’ll likely get that also, since we got the first and it’s named Persona.

        • DBevtz

          I was happy with innocent sin but I really do hope they send over SMT 4 & Soul Hackers to the US. I will be overly happy. Praying

  • AnimeRemix

    GO GO Neptunia V and Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers! =D

  • Katamari Toys

    Aquapazza FTW!

  • MrKappa

    Neptune V, Soul Hackers, Senran Kagura, Aquapazza and Hatsune Miku? My wallet is going to die of starvation.

  • PoweredByHentai



  • LynxAmali

    Gundam AGE has my money.

    MS Saga 2.0?

  • amagidyne

     Spec Ops was awesome. I wonder how it will be received in Japan.

    Now, to wait for Soul Hackers. If it comes out sometime in the next decade it could convince me to finally buy a 3DS. Import one, even, since we’ll probably never see a PAL release. So that would be nice, Atlus USA.

  • Herok♞

    I want the age game but am poor( and used that money for arena). also I didn’t think Neptunia V would be out already. One last thing, is I believe PSone classics on Vita are major enough to get a spot here.

  • Lightthrower

    16 new Playstation games in 1 week in Japan, madness! Look at the PSP still going super strong!

  • Still crossing my fingers for a demo for Project Diva…

  • Can’t wait to see how some of those Japan titles perform in the charts next week. Hopefully here confirmation of localizations for Neptunia V and Soul Hackers; maybe a sneaky confirmation for Hatsune, too. Otherwise, I just import it.

    Tales of Graces will soon be here! Can’t wait! That Day One Edition… I wonder if we will see other companies provide that deal with other games?

  • KingGunblader

    So today we get Infamous Collection, Ratchet & Clank Collection, God of War Saga AND Journey Collection?!

    Definitely getting R&C and probably the Journey collection. I’ll eventually get God of War too, but that’s not really priority. I already have Infamous 1 & 2, so the DLC plus extra bits isn’t really enough for me to buy them again. :/
