I think it's not as easy to do in iM@S2 XD I don't think there's a "delete producer data" option anywhere, you just have to delete it from your harddrive or something. I could be wrong, but I haven't found one anywhere.

Also, it's not like you save your idols' data for office mode or anything, so you don't have to worry about overwriting your beautifully crafted S-rank idol, either \o/ I'd always get so confused after finishing an SP playthrough.

Sort of.

It's always sort of. Basically, upon completing a tour of duty (of 55 weeks) to save a ranking score (Which in turn determines what level producer you end up being) your idol team disappears.

Now, here's the problem. There is NO WAY of saving that data. *

To boot, save files in im@s 2 are singular per run. You can't make for example two files in tandem of the same group in the same run.

Now, failing to do this means that you can't producer rank up (It won't commit the rank you earnt for that run until you save the file, which means you lose the savefile of the idol group. It's a trade in.)

All S4U and any im@s2 storymode performances can be saved seperately. It'll even tell you stats of what you earnt in terms of fans, sales and where you did the performance.

You could, in theory make up to 5 (I think?) runs which stop at week 54 (But you wouldn't be able to gain any producer ranks until after you started clearing them.)

If you're worried about the 360 bug where sometimes it won't detect the save file, and assume it's a new installation... When you see a prompt to input your name (as if you started the game for the first time), just quit the game, or reset it. It'll find it again when given a chance. You could always back it up I guess.

*Well, not quite. You could in theory pull off the save file to copy to a PSP or perhaps a USB, but that has issues of sorts, namely you're stuck with the ranking at that point. Certain items won't be accessible until you have a certain rank, but they're usually DLC item related.

might be me but i think they also changed a few things in term of storyline.

Im only going by this wiki at the storyline.

It say that Hell training and the audition happens during week 39- 40. However when i got to that point it happened between 38-39 and a free week after that.

I dont own a 360 so i cant realyl say anything about that.

Normal is almost easy mode actually - You don't suffer morale loss on any losses, but you can't S rank any catergory.

More likely though is that if you make a top 20 before the end of week 40, you qualify for the IA, and don't have to audition for the wildcard spot.

Wait, so Normal is a new easy mode, and Hyper is the default 360 difficulty? I had no idea! The names are not indicative of that at all. Guess I will start over; at least I wasn't far at all.

Sort of. I imagine that since the unlocks for Ritsuko are different, you might have to play through normal once anyway to unlock Smokey Thrill and the Dragon Palace Extend costume. I might be wrong on that count.

I stand corrected - The costume and song unlocks are done via the extra episodes. It IS a lot harder though, and doing them off the bat is considered a bad, bad idea...

The official math for someone who's got to drop all the money adds up to this. (I've got a 10000 yen card in transit.)

For all item related DLC (Namely, no mail, no pictures, no DLC money) you will need... 9060 yen. (A lot of MADs use the horn, so I'm locked in.)

If you dock Miku and the special extend (at 1600 yen) you end up with 7460 yen, which should alow a direct comparison with the X360 version, which has the exact same setup. (It's about 6000 points, but I haven't checked.)

I hope the Asian version does better for you on the conversion.

It did sell 63000 or so copies in its first week. Not quite as much as L4U, but pretty close. It's expanded the market some. I'm not sure of anywhere that still stocks any.

Well, it's available on Amazon's Marketplace, but you'll be paying $150 instead of $100 (if you want it new, anyway).

Also, G4U perfected!

I wish you could actually do this in G4U orz

In silly im@s news, in the extra episodes, there's a little easter egg.

Normally if you clock on someone to select them, you get the feathery introduction to the game.

Now, you'll get a completely DIFFERENT one if you pick a certain part of their body. No feathers. Lots of embarrassment, and uh, some silly, silly comments.

I did it entirely by accident when I tried to speed through Azusa's scenario. I uh, wasn't expecting it.

Aww. That really sucks, especially since you pre-ordered. :(
I see a few copies floating around on Ebay.
Here's an Asian version: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Idolmaster-2-Japanese-Language-Brand-New-PS3-/250921379288?pt=UK_PC_Video_Games_Video_Games_JS&hash=item3a6c1465d8

Quick question.
If I started a game on Normal, can I switch difficulties later on? Or does it promt you to select a difficulty whenever u start a new cycle?

Also, I have an extra copy of the game that I'm selling if someone wants it.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005PS30CW
Im selling it for $100, so if anyone wants it just buy it off of there.

so I got a message from my parents saying my copy is sitting in my room waiting for me next weekend.
I'm still in awe of this glorious shipping speed. xD

but I suppose I'll be posting comments next weekend then, since I'll start playing then~ :>
