My thoughts: LR will sells more than 13-2.

Personally I think it'll sell around FFXIII-2 or marginally better. This looks to be far better than XIII-2 but XIII-2 would have naturally dissuaded more of the fanbase. I don't believe word of mouth alone would be able to bring them back and then some.

XIII-2 x 3.1 million = OTP

Considering that Lightning is an extremely popular character and that, differently from FFXIII-2 this game will REALY cenetered around her.......

Considering that LR has a few action elements that could attract people generally more oriented on action oriented games (or at least not jrpgs only menu-based)........

Yes, i'm quite sure that LR could easily sell more than FFXIII-2, unless it will be a very bad game obviously.

Around here, to satisfy bruised egos, shipped = sold.

If it sells better FF is doomed, and more Lightning sequels will be made.

If it sells like S*** FF will be saved and we get FFXV.

Bottom line LR must bomb, luckily general perception and the hate for the XIII number will do the job.

just like XIII-2 sold better than XIII?

XIII was terrible, it being so terrible left a bad taste in everyone's mouth, and thus, LR will sell between 1 and 2 million copies, probably less if this game is as obscure as it seems to be(never heard of it outside of Gfaqs)

face it TC, the lightning saga will end, this game will bomb, and we'll have that garbage XIII to blame for it
