    I'll make sure to suggest this game to as many people as I can.
    I got it some weeks ago and I've since beat it, I can also say that it's one of the best rhythm games I've ever played!

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the demo put them off. It certainly did for me.

    Why? Not trying to attack you or anything, just curious.

    I think a major factor of it not selling well in the UK was that GAME was in trouble (shops closing and them not stocking new games such as ME3 which is bigger than Rhythm Thief) at it's release so on launch day they didn't have any in store at all. Although now that they are out of trouble things seem to be picking up as Rhythm Thief is in the top 10 this week.

    That's pretty interesting news! Wonder if there's a quick way to confirm it? (I can ask around here, but it might take a couple days.)

    I bit at £24 (including delivery), but sadly it's from an eBay seller.

    The good news is that they bought a duplicate copy by accident, so SEGA still got the £30 that otherwise wouldn't have happened if I didn't buy it.

    But yeah, I can see that the game has a story to it an all, but the core game play is still a rhythmic styled game.

    There are dancing games that do well here, but sadly they are in Arcade/Bowling Areas and they are called Dance Dance Evolution.

    lol, just noticed Shadi made a "shady" joke. XD

    This breaks my heart. People like Aaron Webbler works so hard on these games, and yet they sell so poorly. Call of Duty makes a few minor improvements and makes billions..

    I'll be buying this game on launch.
