NCS Product Synopsis
When NCS imported our initial shipment of 1150 copies of Driving Emotion Type-S back in March of 2000, three factors influenced our buying decision:

1) It was Square's first ever PS2 racing game. It had to be good.
2) The PS2 audience was hungry for any new PS2 software.
3) Square could do not wrong. The entire company walked on water.

   We submitted our preorder on time and wired a 15% deposit to guarantee stock. We waited two months for the game to finally ship. Five minutes after we ripped open the cellophane and did the play test, we knew doom had arrived right on NCS' doorstep. All 1150 copies of it.

1) Square's first racing game wasn't good. It wasn't good at all.
2) The PS2 audience was hungry but not that hungry. 
3) Square and developer Escape dropped into the drink like a ton of bricks.

   Despite the wretched reviews, the game still sold relatively well. We're guessing people had to see for themselves what Square had wrought.  Stores which had submitted their own preorders with NCS were kind enough to only cancel 60% of their reservation commitments instead of 98%. Small mercies... March 2008 marks the eighth anniversary of our Driving Emotion buying blunder. We're hoping to keep the game in stock for another 2-3 years so we can continue to wince whenever we pass the PS2 "D" section in our warehouse.
