Koihime musou has reached 1/3 of the way to voices.

http://twitter.com/MangaGamer/status/49858569725689857

1/3 of 2000 = 667

But its yet to reach 3/8

http://twitter.com/MangaGamer/status/49868141152575488

3/8 of 2000 = 750

So Koihime Musou has sold between 667 and 750 copies

^And I thought they were going to keep silence until it reached 2000 :( I was hoping they were creeping up to the high 1900's

Wow... Unless a LOT of people were waiting for preliminary stats to buy this game (which I doubt very much), I don't think they're gonna hit the goal anytime soon. ~_~ Ah well, at least this gives some tiny insight in actual sales. The more you know.

The game maker Yeti announced that it will refrain from publicizing Root Double, the latest adventure game from Never7 -the end of infinity- director Takumi Nakazawa, due to the earthquake. The story of the game deals with the meltdown of a nuclear reactor.

That's fuckin' horrible. Yet why am I not surprised? Proof once again to never bet on English PC bishoujoge.

Assuming this is Kara no Shoujo, what exactly could the situation be? Did Innocent Grey license out some of their work to another studio or did they borrow from another company's work and now have to renegotiate for the English release?

No, it's not. I think it exceeded the expectations. Koihime Musou is selling better than Shuffle that has been by far the bestselling Mangagamer title so far. To expect even higher numbers would be really unrealistic.

I'm pretty sure you'd find out later if it really is.

Yet they're expecting 2000 in order to release the voices patch.

They're not. They just told to fans: "We sell 2000, you get the voices." It's as easy as that. If some people expected Koihime would sell 2000 in one month, it's their problem. But it was totally unreasonable to expect that.

Are you serious? You believe they expect to sell 2000 over the lifetime of the game? "Hey guyz, whenever Koihime Musou gets 2000, just let us know, we'll give you the voices. We'll check again in a year or two?"

They were gunning for strong sales from the start, and were hoping that Koihime Musou would be the title that would bring it for them. No way is sitting at 667 copies making them satisfied, especially with how frontloaded these games are, it's probably going to hover around there for a long time, if not forever.
