again. . . the new version of Jet Set Radio bombed. something like #31 in its first week. which is around a few thousand sales. The same can be said for japan.


once again. Its a shame a game like this can't sell. If you have an Xbox, give it a rent. I'll post the actual figures soon, if they 're still where I saw them.

From The Magic Box:

It was clarified that Microsoft has sold 123,334 units of XBox for the first weekend of the launch in Japan (Feb 22 - 24).

Jet Set Radio Future - 9,800 units



Wooooo! I think the country of Tajikistan is more "hardcore" than Japan.



that is all.

ive only played the first one on the dc, and I, too, think this game is amazing. The cel-shading is very stylish, the learning curve is very easy, and the music, of course, is great

Well believe it or not I'm glad this game bombed. I've been incredibly dissapointed with the way that Sega has basically allowed themselves to become Microsoft's bitch. Maybe this will knock some sense into them and they won't be so incredibly friendly with the Xbox anymore.

I dunno, I mean JSR is great and all, but if Sega keeps up this MS love they can roll over and die for all I care. I mean, I'm really, really bitter towards anything MS or Xbox, and I don't plan on ever owning an Xbox, so if they want to make all their best games Xbox-exclusive screw 'em. O_o

I got the first one for DC and I think it's pretty fun. Not my favorite DC game, but still fun. If I ever pick up an Xbox I'll probably get JSRF.

As for the Microsoft's bitch thing, it does piss me off in some ways, but at least they'll have all the power they could possibly ever want to make more great games. Hey, if it's an original Sega game I don't care what system it's on.
