Wow, relax man. I'm not ignoring anything. I was just saying why I was expecting them to be more glowing. I didn't, nor am I going to. nor do I care to, read any of them because none of it matters. I will at most skim some highlights. My mind has been made up about this game for a long time. People are just taking lighthearted free shots at IGN. Calm down.
The only one I'm ignoring (and apparently so are MC and opencritic at least so far) is that 6/10 from that french site because I always throw out the biggest outliers on both sides, and because that site has a history of rating things 14 points lower than average to begin with, making them serial outliers. And that's actually a normal thing to do with statistics. It's nothing nefarious. I was actually just expecting IGN's review to be the one that I'd be dismissing for being overly positive.
I'm betting it's less of a boom and more of a steady trickle as players generate a buzz. We're all here looking at the reviews and whatnot, but I figure most people who are candidates for this game aren't. They'll get interested by word of mouth.
To me, the only thing that matters is if it meets internal projections. If SE Holdings has an accurate read on the market, they will continue to invest in the console space, despite its waning influence in Japan.
