Japanese Famitsu, which also happened to give Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII a score of 35/40, took some time to chronicle the release of the highly-anticipated Final Fantasy VII prequel. According to its reports, a line of 250 had formed in front of Bic Camera's main store in Ikebukuro thirty minutes before opening and another had 200 gamers standing in wait at Yodobashi Camera's Shinjuku West store just south of that, where managers opened early only to have the line to expand to 300. Now that the line had adequately prepared for glory, Square Enix executive director Shinji Hashimoto made an appearance to guffaw mightily while piles of yen flew into his pockets compelled by sheer force of greed. In truth, Hashimoto pointed out his concerns about sales with the very recent release of the updated PSP hardware and, noting mothers in line with their children, commented that he had felt the flow of time since Final Fantasy VII's release. It's okay, Hashimoto-san, no need to cry. It looks like Crisis Core is going to give the PSP's reigning sales champion, Monster Hunter 2, a run for its money.

Forums / News / Crisis Core shipment met by large lines and Shinji Hashimoto

WOW. so crisis core actually did good? I mean, I was excited for it, but I was also excited for Dirge of Cerberus, and well, that wasn't at all what I expected, that game wasn't exactly Final Fantasy standards. Hmmmm maybe I will give Crisis a shot....
No, it just got a lot of hype. Sort of like a new Halo game over here!
ooohh... I see, well damn the spin offs! Your point is made clear on the forum topic "Sony tell Wada to get his shit straight..." or something like that. =)
I'd say that topic is unrelated. There, I argue that the PS3 is sucking butt over in Japan, which is fact and something some people refuse to comprehend; here, I am pointing out that a seperate company, Square Enix, is selling underwhelming but overhyped polymorphist excretions to an audience of zealous Cloud/Sephiroth yaoi buttmunches in a feeble attempt to wring more money out of the delapidated corpse of a once-successful franchise. The two could not be more dissimilar!
