Hmm, I actually thought the new translation in FFIV Advance was great. Way better than the original, in any case. But yeah, too many remakes, too soon. I just played this game two years ago, dagnabbit!

The article is definitely a bit misleading. They're comparing apples to oranges by putting Guild Wars' total sales up against WoW's active subscribers. WoW is currently in a league of its own when it comes to tallying up the active subscription base across the world. However, you cannot deny that 5 million sales is a very impressive number by any standard, MMO or not.

Wow! I thought I was getting a good deal with the Daxter pack, but this will blow it away. I envy those who don't have a PSP yet!

Heh, not surprised my initial comment got rated down. Nope, I'm not kidding. I don't mean to be inflammatory or System Wars-like. I honestly want to see PC gaming succeed. I want to play good games, regardless of platform. But these numbers aren't encouraging, at all. According to VG Chartz' estimates, in 2007, in America alone: - Halo 3 sold 4.9 million - CoD4 sold 3.7 million across two platforms - Mario Galazy sold 2.6 million - Guitar Hero 3 sold 5.1 million across several platforms And the list goes on. Hence my initial surprise that the PC has only one million seller, and an expansion pack at that. To a publisher looking at these figures, they would observe (quite correctly) that the console market is where they should spend their time and money. Crysis isn't on here because of its crazy system requirements. Yes, many of us folk posting here on GS might be hardcore enough to keep our PCs up-to-date, but the average gamer won't have the horsepower to run it.

Wow! Only one million seller the whole year? The PC gaming industry is in worse trouble than I had guessed.

I love Burnout 3. I played that game to death when it came out, and wound up with over 95% completion - the only things left were the races in F1 cars. I've played Burnout Revenge, too, though it didn't strike my fancy nearly as much. I prefer the bright, Sega-inspired environments of 3.

Having said that, is Burnout Legends worth getting? It looks very similar to 3, with some aspects of Burnout 2 added in. But by and large 3 seems to be the main source of material for Legends. I wouldn't mind re-experiencing that game on a portable, but it'd be nice to have new content to look forward to.
