Do you know whether it's digital only or retail/digital btw? I know Famitsu (website) have (or had) it as digital.
What, the game itself?

Looks like something ambitious (aka: not just a port), so it's most likely retail/DL game. Maybe we'll get more details about that in Famitsu this week.

Also, sliiiightly better pic of the Famitsu magazine, still from the stream (went and checked the timeshift):

Next week's Famitsu is also going to have some sort of announcement for Granblue Fantasy. Wonder if we'll get yet another mobile to consumer soft announcement.

Well, in case it happens, here's some context: Granblue Fantasy's grossing performance since launch (on iOS)

The game launched on May 1st, 2014, and it started a bit slowly, between 30th to 60th, with 16th as highest result in the first month. It left top 100 briefily around mid-July, then it went back around the 30th to 60th zone (even around 80th). But, as you can see, the game's grossing improved with time, with far more appearances in top 20, if not near the top 10, and even in the top 10 itself. In the past few months, it appeared between 10th and 30th, except some sporadic periods outside of that zone.

Famitsu scans are now allowed again on neogaf ?

I clearly remember they weren't... or at least something recent, if you post a 1999 scan page don't think it's against their policy
The ones L-A showed were from Famitsu's own livestream, so they were willingly showing a page of their magazine. Also direct-feed ones you see with Famitsu's logo come directly from their website.

The Battle Cats has now sold more digital than MH4G. Do we have numbers for MH4G? And Cube Creator has been #1 for like 2-3 weeks now fighting off Happy Home Designer and Battle Cats.

Impressive Animal Crossing numbers. That's not surprising.

Don't start digging old posts when you don't understand what they mean. Especially with what you have predicted for PS4 at past threads.
Seriously, haha. Consoles-war fanboysm is a bad bug :p

Anyway, how successful (or not) do you guys consider Rythmn Tengoku The Best to be at this point (and Obon will give it another push of course) all things considering? Was the game marketed as a full-fledged sequel or more as a compilation of sorts like its title suggest (iirc new stuff is comparable in numbers to the inclusion of songs from the past 3 titles)?
