    I don’t want to be “that” guy, but it’s not “mean’t”, but “meant”. I’ve seen “mean’t” on this blog a lot of times as of now. I’m not saying this to be rude, just so you can improve your writing on the next time.

    27k? I would think most would think that is hardly burning up the charts, but it is a brand new entry and it made the top 10, just narrowly beaten by Square’s remake of their SNES classic Secret of Mana, by only 9 copies.
    What Sega needs is more than just one title at a time occupying the top 10, Nintendo usually has two or three at a time often enough, even Namco’s got more than just one.

    Is 27k decent? What would successful sales look like for this game, I wonder.
