Genre: Fighting

I had to come back with another blog post about heat the soul 6 because we're receiving a generous amount of pre-orders and I'm sure everybody is wondering when we're going to bring this one in. I should be able to bring this in a day before the official release date, but I'm not quite sure just yet. My suppliers give me a firm thumbs up on early shipment, but as always, I want to wait until a week or so beforehand to really give everyone the true heads up. I strongly encourage everyone to pre-order as soon as possible, this one will pretty much have everybody. No Choice.

X-Men Origins Wolverine - Can't Even Put It On The Website Right Now

I'm going to take it for the team right now and say that this game will not sell past the street date. As bad as it is, movie games haven't sold stellar numbers. Mass distributors and retailers will be pushing this game to the limit next week.

I'm not going to list the game on the website until the price drops to $14.99, because it's too much of a hassle to list it at $59.99, then change it, and then get a bad wrap for price gouging because we forgot to change the price.

Activision is the only one that will profit from this game, you definitely don't want to get stuck with a few thousand copies of this game at your store, could be savagely deadly.

Weekly Recap - April 09 - Week 4

A very quick week has gone by once again. Nothing too crazy this week, except for Death Smiles 360. The limited editions garnered much demand. We speculate that supply will be short the next few weeks as many of our suppliers have informed us once again that the limited edition death smiles will only be available through retail outlets.

We finally had a chance to watch the final fantasy 7 advent children blu-ray last night, followed by the two previews of Final Fantasy Agito and Versus 13. I was surprised, after selling out for weeks on end, the graphics are amazing. I watched street fighter 4 monster Andy play the demo, and the introduction to the game looks stunningly real-life.

Honestly, I'm surprised that the blu-ray plus demo is only selling for $69.99. After watching the extended version of the omni-slash against sephiroth, you'd expect the blu-ray to gain some value, but afterall, we must be competitive. The only downside is not having japanese language with english subtitles, because as we all know, japanese voices for anime always sound much crazier.
