Honestly feel like I wouldn't be able to laugh hard enough if y'all dropped $55 on something that got immediately thrown to the bargain bin even if I put the bullhorn right to your head.

Ugh. They were renamed, too.

So basically they don't want us to buy anything so they can say that they won't localize mainline iM@S, because the franchise doesn't sell in the west.

That's the impression I got. I'm going to make sure to complain a lot on their forums later.

That's because there's nothing to justify here. It's literally the worse-case scenario.

Made a topic on the community forum. Feel free to throw some further comments at it. After a few posts, I'll probably tweet it to the community director.

HOOBIES: All Sports, Plushies

Anyways, this is okay with me. I'm not going to buy this simply in hopes that it will convince Namco that THE iDOLM@STER can succeed here because I already own the game, but had I not already owned a PSP copy I'd probably buy it in a heartbeat. As it is, I kind of want Harmonic Score... but I'd really just like Harmonic Score for listening to the song's off my PSP, and Rhythmic Record to actually play on the iPod touch.

Really- it's a lot more convenient to play on iOS than on the old PSP. I just can't justify that much money for a game I already own and I don't care for the rhythm portion with anyone other than the loli rangers.

Trapped.

Buy -> "Yay!  We can finally charge Japanese prices in America!"

Don't buy -> "Why didn't they buy?  They said they would buy it if we localized it!"  And whoever stuck their neck out for the localization gets in serious trouble.


For what it's worth, I don't have a smartphone.  I've been holding off on getting one... I prefer a desktop computer for my computing needs.  Not specifically planning to get an iPhone either.

E-mail is a fun hoobie.

I'm wondering who will purchase this, because I would assume everyone who is into IM@S would have already purchased the PSP versions already.  It was such an import friendly game to begin with, but I guess if you don't have a PSP, this version will probably be appealing.

As much as I like im@s, 55 dollars for a mobile game is just ridiculous in my opinion. Plus not everyone has an iOS device. But that's just my opinion at least.
