    Hm, nothing for me this week. It’s cool though, I’ve got plenty to catch up on.

  • Power Pros is not coming out. Pro Yakyyu Spirits (the realistic of the two konami baseball games) is the one coming out. Power Pros is in a few weeks.

  • It’s not Power Pros, it’s Pro Yaakyu Spirits. Power Pros comes out in May.

    While saying that OP:PW2 will sell like hotcakes (or whatever JPN’s equivalent is) is redundant, I’m interested in seeing how close (or very far apart) the numbers are between the PS3 and Vita versions.

  • sunK1D

    And the 1 and only X360 game will sell more copies than all the other games combined. Kinda sad that shooters do so well.

  • DesmaX

    DOA5 is only being released now in japan?
    I would assume that it was released before being released in the west

    • Guy Wesley

      Japan already had DOA5 as long as we did. I think you’re mistaken the cross-buy pack with the original. Everyone’s releasing DOA5+ for Vita, though, so that version’s just being released.

  • ShadowDivz

    Does anyone know if the one piece game will be an original story or if it will follow the anime. Like the naruto games.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      It will have some kind of original story there. For example, Luffy going to Skypiea after time skip.
