I'm a One Piece fan. A big fan infact. If it is out I plan to pick up the new One Piece: Pirate Warriors, a GREAT game of the Warriors series, and a AMAZING anime series combined I had to have it, HOWEVER, I found myself BAFFLED, by the out right STUPIDITY of the customers and fans.

Let me explain what I mean.

Ok, so there people out there, who are refusing to buy a game which may be around or under 50 bucks, even though it is tied to them as long as they know how to access their account with sony, they can download it again with no extra charge on any new system if their system dies.

Then these SAME people are going to go and pay upwards of 100+ bucks for the EU version, for the SAME EXACT GAME, Neither is getting a dub, both release within the same week, like 4 days apart.

JUST so they can have a box, which isn't needed in the since you now have your game playable at ANY time, and no need to mess with. A book which will be digital on the US version, and a physical disc, (Which is only HAPPENING IN EU, because OP sales alot better, BECAUSE they are smart enough to realize supporting it will make the company WANT to do this, unlike us obviously who have yet to figure this concept out) and which will have practically NO resale value due to the fact of of it being a different region TV display, as not only will most general game stores won't and can't take it because of that, and special stores won't accept it because of said tv region differences.

JUST so they can have some false sense of ownership which means little when just about everything regarding ownership is practically lose due to the difference in region, and which they will barely be to do the one thing that ownership really involves which is selling that game when done with it for barely anything.

Also people who refuse to buy because of lack of a crappy done dubbed JUST so they DON'T have to read 5 or more words, which they have read numerous times online looking up the comic.

Who yet again both sides fail to realize the lack of said support in said region is what making companies take these half ass measurements, and that by SUPPORTING and proving you want the series here, will get said company to take the extra time and money to provide side physical copy and dubbed voices?

Am.. Am I getting this correctly?

Because, you know.. that's just amazingly ignorant, I'm talking even Goku and Luffy are not THAT airheaded,... Ok... MAYBE they are, HOWEVER, my point still stands.

Now, yes I know this is MY opinion, and this won't change those doing it, and it may seem rude to some, but I think it's important to point out EXACTLY what it is you are truly doing in my thoughts.

I really want this series to shine and become more popular here, I will support it here, even without a physical copy, because with more support, they will be more willing to do the things that would normally cost them money to do.

I've said my piece, I'm going to go shake my head in disgust of my fellow gamer now. Have a nice day.

I'm sorry if I offend anyone with this, I had to get this off my chest, I truly believe this kind of thing right here is WHY One Piece fans are truly look down upon at times, and why the series is not as well received, along with how poorly it has been and is being handled to, I dislike the dubs as much as the next person who does, but even I would deal with them to support this series, and a GREAT game.

Agreed, however. @Chaos Master: .... some NEW information has come to my attention and I have to atleast say I agree on some of what they mean, but I'll explain this later in my One Piece review later, but to point out for now that have some vaild reasons to complain now...

I totaly agree. One Piece is a great anime full of wit and charm. The only reason it's not as popular is because of some minor set backs, namely the 4kids dub. So who cares if there's a physical disk? Who cares if it comes with a booklet? The fact is we should be happy to be getting the game at all. I mean, the last One Piece game they released for the Wii only had a limited number of copies made for the US and is now one of the hardest physical disks to find! To those people who want a physical copy, all I can say is quit your complaining and be greatful to even get the game at all.
