Guess It's safe to say they aren't cutting much. Maybe they found out a way to consume less resources on the umd. There's also a note saying it'll be on psn towards the bottom.

^Are you kidding? The character count actually went down, we went from 457 characters to approximately 400. The unit count looks good since we have approximately 250 more, but it looks like they're gonna cut about 100 characters to make room for those and the new characters.

The PSN availability is awesome though, that's a good price.

I see. Looks like I may have to create a Japanese PSN account and get some PSN money for that if I were to decide on a PSN route, which I never did before.

Too bad I'll have to look at Play Asia for starters.

This site is cheaper:

But it'll still be less expensive to just import the UMD, unless you were gonna use expensive shipping in which case it'll be of similar price.

How many characters did you actually use in world? There were so many characters that were useless for anything other than enemies for the story. I'd rather them trim down the characters that the minority would use and bring in fresh material than the opposite. Also it said more than 400 characters rather than approx. We don't know how many will actually make the cut.

Dang, that's a real overload of units. Hopefully the selection of ones that are added get good animations (I already see the Hydra is using an animation from the Mass-Produced Nu Gundam, and a particular favorite animation of mine), and if there are any units getting shot down from World, there aren't many.

According to the article, the number of unit is about 950. We have much more unit but less character to pilot them. Maybe some of those new series will only have MS, not a single character.

Says over 950 units and over 400 characters, actually

I don't really need more than 400 characters. I usually only have like a few dozen pilots I use and forget the rest =\ I guess variety is nice?
