This pleases me. Such a fantastic game and now we might see some more localisation of excellent Japanese games in the future

Pat on the back for everyone that did their part and good luck finding a copy to those that want one.

Amazon, Zavvi & Shopto are sold out, my HMV didn't have any on friday, Tesco & Play also couldn't get enough to fulfill pre-orders.

Got my copy from GAME in-store.

A non-Final Fantasy JRPG at the top of the charts? Is this the start of that JRPG renaissance I've been hoping for?

At the very least, since it's Namco publishing it gives a bit of hope that they'll bring over some of their other RPGs, ie, the Tales series!

I'm so glad that this has done well. I really feared it would sell poorly, but I'm glad to see I've been proven wrong.

I'm deep inside his mum now and it's pretty hard.

That reads back wrong but it's still true!

Stunning game which is worthy of its top spot, it has completely exceeded my expectations. Can't wait to go home and try to metamorphose my Lubber Club into an Adamantiger. My only gripe, it's far too addictive!
It's just a ride.

Somebody saw me on playing it and sent messages calling it a cartoon kids game, then after telling him how good it was he went to buy it only to find out it had sold out everywhere.

I laughed at him. Still am a little bit.

This is an outrage, I must inform EA about this game so they can turn it into a gritty FPS

Still need to grab myself a copy, glad to see it doing so well. The response from you guys looks like I won't be disappointed either.

It's a shame that there aren't more JRPGs that top the charts here. There are quite a few of them and they're very good.
