I really like Namco Bandai.

I think I will be getting this game when I jump to next gen. Seems that no RPG is set to contend with it's scope for a while.

Glad that the game is coming to consoles. I thought about getting W2 but had to pass on the specs (which are still too great for my fairly underpowered pc).
