Advertisement always comes back in sale.
Really. I could've sworn that the xbox never turned a profit.

ON THE PRODUCT:
Agreed. Everyone likes free stuff, but, it's highly probable that the cost of advertising won't cover the cost of production.

That may be true for some games but Kh is a major selling item the cost of production (in my opinion.) wont even come close to the amount made over selling it. I know People simply Dying for the COM game and having a Remade Kh2 with it I think it will do fine.

Profit =/= sale.
The xbox DID sell.
It was just so expensive to make that how much it sell didn't yield a profit :/

It's a proven fact. Advertising yields in sale. Because if you advertise, people learn and acknowledge your product, increasing sales chances.

You also forgot
KH is a major franchise in both Japan, Europe, and North America.
The original Xbox I can't say the same for...

dude there is literally not reason for F:M not to come here, there is no "were sorry japan that America got some new stuff" everything was the same in both versions. both versions got the one extra boss fight sephiroth, that is only cool until you beat him, then the coolness turns to suck. square-enix should be saying sorry to America and japan. hell they don't even need translate the text, just give it too us, its already voiced in english ;).

^No. They actually cut out stuff in our KH2 version.

This game should be the apology game for the U.S. and Europe.

In order to keep an acceptable rating.
Not to be assholes XD

In JP KH2:
- the Hydra bleeds green blood.
-Will Turner has a scene that he points a gun to his head
-Jack Sparrow has a scene where he has the sword stabbed into him.
- The pirates in Port Royal have guns, not crossbows.
- Xigbar has an actual crosshair, not some mock-up like the American KH2

^Okay. In the Japan version, when Sora cuts off the Hydra's head, the Hydra bleeds green like in the movie. Also in the Japan version, Xigbar's crosshair actually looks like a sniper rifle's crosshair. And also the pirate's guns looked like actual muskets instead of crossbows.

*Edit* Dogenzaka, pretty much summed up all the changes. I didn't know about the Will Turner and Jack Sparrow changes though.

-Will Turner has a scene that he points a gun to his head
-Jack Sparrow has a scene where he has the sword stabbed into him.

Agreed, I miss worded my argument: What if they sell it here and it doesn't cover the cost of production, wouldn't that lead to a net loss and deficit for square, whose stocks aren't the strongest at the moment.
KH is a major franchise in both Japan, Europe, and North America.
I'll use the book analogy again: You purchase the metamorphosis by kafka, a year later the metamorphosis has a new version, precisely two resource/response essays in it. Would you go out and buy that new version for the essays?
