One Piece Musou Has 500,000 Orders
Gold PS3 system has first-ever manufacturing process.
Retailers have already placed 500,000 orders for One Piece Pirate Musou, Namco Bandai Games vice president Shin Unozawa said at the game's completion ceremony press conference earlier today. The long awaited pairing of One Piece and Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors series sees release on March 1, exclusively on PlayStaiton 3.
The press conference was also attended by Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Hiroshi Kawano, who commented about the game's Gold Edition hardware bundle. While the PS3 has previously seen special hardware editions designed to match games like Final Fantasy XIII and Yakuza, different from those, the One Piece PS3 system design is not made through paint, but as part of the pressing process. This is the first time a PS3 has been produced with this technique, said Kawano.
