iDOLM@STER 2!!
« on: April 11, 2010, 12:55:09 PM »
Looks like someone at Namco Bandai let slip some good news.

Wonder when they'll officially announce it? TGS?

lol Sankaku jin's blog.

But if we are to talk about a confirmation date, TGS does seem to be a good time (believing that it will come out in 2011).

I believe they're going to release info on July 3rd-4th, along with the live show that they're having around that time.

...My boyfriend reads GoNintendo, and that's what it said on that site. If it's wrong, don't shoot me please XD

and no PS3 Version? *dies* Bandai-Namco, whyyyy ; ;

Marketing strategy. Or at least that's what I believe. Who knows, and to be honest, it's probably better that way.

I unno, it seems to me more people would buy the game if they had more ways to get it...

This showed up on a list of games that'll come to xbox 360. This does not mean iDOLM@STER 2 will be xbox 360 exclusive based on the info so far. So if I were you, I'd wait till TGS. All this means is that iM@S 2 is aiming towards an early 2011 release.

1) Part of marketing strategy. You'll be forced to get a console just to play the game. And to make sure your choice wasn't a waste, there'd be other games for you to buy for the 360 (notice the number of exclusive of the 360 compared to the PS3).
2) Checking the list of all current PS3 games, this game will probably be lost along the titles currently for the PS3.

Either way, I'm not doubting its PS3 release, but I said that it's probably better if it didn't come there.

Even so, it's not like Bandai-Namco gets money from the purchase of an Xbox 360 console. They just get money for the game, yeah?

Ahh, well. Still got my fingers crossed for TGS.

I forgot to add the symbiotic relationship that strategy forms, but yeah. >.<

Anyway, we can hope. Right now, we can only wait for the truth.

PS: The source from that Sankaku article was from Jin's blog, the same place where YARUO comments, (XD) so let's not take that too seriously, guys.

Enjoy your beta test, the PS3 will get the real thing... (This coming from a 360-only user)

Verily.

I have full confidence in Namco Bandai's latest beta testing strategies and will wait for the superior, complete version.

Better if it was 360 only? Please, don't make me laugh.

Ah, finally something to work forward to. ;D I hope to hear an official announcement at TGS, too.

Just putting this out there, but it would be a smart business move of Namco to bring the game to PS3, whether exclusive or not, seeing as it's much more popular in Japan than the 360. Or they can pull off the ultimate trolling technique: Idolmaster 2for the Wii.

Release on both consoles, providing each of them exclusive contents and unique limited version privileges,  then no matter what all of us will have no choice but to take out our wallet and pay for both  ;D
