This is why America should get iDOLM@STER 2 PS3 (Sure, they're not songs from the game, but they're still really good songs that fit the idols' voices perfectly): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WpTS1tF ... ure=g-vrec
For those of you complaining about the price; The reason it's so expensive is because of the amount of work put into the game.
They had to pay each individual idol to sing AND voice act, not to mention the price of producing a song these days (Demos can get really expensive sometimes). Not to mention the price of the engine PLUS the physics engine (If you haven't noticed, the physics are really realistic and have no/close-to-no clipping). Not to mention the amount of work the modeler put into the models, so model quality also puts a dent in their budget. They also have to pay to have their DLC go public (Don't act like it's a one-sided problem, DLC puts a dent in both the buyer and the supplier's wallets, and if you haven't noticed, iM@S has a LOT of DLC). Then you have to pay every single person who contributed to the game. As you have probably already guessed, iDOLM@STER is a REALLY EXPENSIVE SERIES. Its budget probably exceeds that of Naruto (I didn't compare it to an American game because they usually don't have as much work put into them, usually low quality and all-engine and no work).
In my opinion, iDOLM@STER 2 is a great game that deserves your quality buck for their quality product. But you should probably save your money, at the rate this thread is going, iDOLM@STER 2 has a high chance of being localized. Keep up the good work and get more supporters for this game!
