 Seen the Demo before it came, and seen my friend play ot a bit. it's 
funny ^_^ Also, it's not a typical (traditional) RPG... You can attack 
your own team, etc..... It's startegy oriented battles. I think I'll get 
mine later... want to finish playing my Nadeshiko game first ^_^;)

 Well, it's OK for the first 2-3 games... after that, you might get sick 
of  the game... (well, for most RPG type game, if youplay it too many 
times, you get sick of it anyway ^_^;)
 Got my special trading card from it ^_^ (by buying Eva game)

 Yup. you got that right. (The number of Play Station greatly increased 
more, right before the release of Final Fantasy... )

 Don't forget all the H games and seiyu related stuff too ^_^; basically, 
it's better to have both Saturn and Play Station... well, if youlike 
anime over polgon, get Saturn... if you like polygon over anime, get 
Playstation... if you are a Otaku who likes strange games (or H games 
^_^;) get PCFX... ^_^; And if you are a super Otaku, with nothing to do 
in life, (joking ^_-) get a X68000... ^_^;;;

 The Playstation version (special version) has more premium on it...But 
the Saturn one is better priced, so it's easier to get.

 That's incorrect. It all depends on which magazine you read... Famitsu 
and Playstation-related magazines all say that. but Saturn centered 
games, and Gal-games magazine's stats don't agree with them. Also, Saturn 
games sales looks bad, compared to Play Station... that's because those 
Sh*t heads at Sony decided not to allow used games outin the market... 
(a*s-holes....) Saturn allowes used games sales, so "new" games sold 
doens't look good, but the number of users are more than "what's sold 
officially"... (counting in all these hidden figures is important in 
Japan, if you really want to know what's gooing on ^_^;)
