    How well did Ace Combat 6 do? Anyone have the sales numbers? I'm a bit curious. Thanks.

    Any EU listings? Why isn't the game selling too well? It was much bigger during its PS2 days, wasn't it?

    I just read in my new copy of game informer that a few weeks ago the 360 outsold the PS3 in Japan during the week that AC6 came out. Sadly, the 360 was $#@! slapped to the face when the Ps3's price cut was announced the following week and sold 3 times the amount of consoles than they did in the previous week.

    AC6 sold over 150,000 in North America, I don't remember the exact NPD number though.

    AC6 is a great game.
    Just not enough exposure you know?

    Its one of those LTTP games that you wish you had played earlier

    I just read that the game didn't have local multiplayer. I know this sounds stupid, but I actually enjoyed creating airshows in Ace Combat 4 using the 2-player splitscreen. I'd align the planes together and do some crazy stunts, and watch the replay. Yeah, it's lame, but as a military brat I've always enjoyed airshows and wanted to be a fighter pilot.

    The game has dropped down a few places in my most wanted list.

    since AC is a pretty popular franchise in japan i'm 99,9% sure that they will port it to ps3, as they did with eternal sonata. 6 months exclusivity period, but 200k+ sales are maybe not enough to recoup dev costs. didn't namco said they would have to sell 500k copies to recoup the dev costs of hd game (ps3 actually) ?

    Still, the sales are not bad for a niche game.

    I really enjoy it, though multiplayer requires a heck of a lot of skill

    This has always been a PlayStation game so it's natural that it should do better on PlayStation than Xbox360. Just my 2.

    I would say there is enough, I have seen a TON of commercials for it. I'm surprised it is this low with the number of times I've seen the commercial.

    Thanks VENGEFUL_BLUR for the avatar and spyrde for the sig!

    Well it did ship during the insane AAA time of the year. Too many games, this will sell great at $40 i'm sure
