    Well done, them.

    I wonder what the next ‘jumbo’ Japanese PS3 game is going to be? Is there anything on the horizon?

    This year probably not, but next year maybe we can play Final Fantasy XIII Versus.

    Maybe Final Fantasy 14 will sell in Japan or Sony have something up their sleeves at TGS or E3.
