    The big day is approaching soon, and stores are readying their displays and the ad campaign is rolling out. Just a few pics I swiped from IGNInsider of some store displays and a magazine ad. Too bad we don't see stuff like that here, really adds excitement to the launch of a big game. I need to get myself to Tokyo and swipe some of them cardboard standups.

    What other 'exclusive' stuff does it have in that PS2 VF4 article?
    would it be possible to show it here??

    That's it for the VF4 news this week. I just thought people might get a kick out of the pictures. These came from their Gaming Life in Japan feature, which is actually a pretty good without having to resort to Japanese magazines themselves. Plus they often have lots of Japanese video game related ads, commercials, billboards, and what not.

    I just wanted to mention that every game store that I went to, VF4 was being heavily promoted. There was almost always a running video (mix of the arcade intros and the TGS clip), usually a huge poster, and I've seen those stands several times. And these are at very general stores like LAOX, the video game section of a department store (My City? Mitsukoshi? Can't remember) too.

    If VF4 doesn't do well, it certainly isn't because Sega didn't try.

    Could VF4 be Sega's next million seller since VF2? I sure think (and hope so). If it doesn't sell in mass quantities, nothing from Sega will.

    And no, I don't post on on the IGN boards, nor do I read them.
