Never doubt the appetite for all things Final Fantasy in Japan – sales of PS3 rocketed last week after the arrival of a playable demo of Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII on the Blu-ray release of CGI movie Final Fantasy: Advent Children Complete.
Its a Movie, Now imagine FFVII Remake or FFXIII + Versus XIII
Agreed. Now imagine Gran Turismo 5 and Tekken 6 also.
Agreed. Now imagine Dragon Quest on PS3 and Team ICO's game.
i'm shocked... liek... noe wey!
Now imagine pr0nz on bluray. --what? they're japanese. They love the stuff. Play B3yond, kids. xD
now imagine a world with no war
technology would not be so advanced without war; a sad truth that is.
It is not the movie Gun_Senshi is the demo!
why disagree? i tought it was funny
Tried to and didn't like it. Where would my Call Of Duty 4 be. Or Metal Gear Solid franchise. Or <insert pretty much any title>. See the gaming world would be filled with the stuff that Nintendo is doing, which to me is a bad thing. I probably wouldn't be playing games tbh (which actually could be a good thing... interesting).
"Now imagine Dragon Quest on PS3 and Team ICO's game. " Team ICO's games haven't sold that well unfortunately, and Dragon Quest X is coming out on Wii, and IX is not even out yet. We would have to wait until DQ XI, and that might take a LONG time.
Nice! Japanese people are going crazy for anything FF. Is it even possible for Square to release a FF flop with its large fanbase? I think they would buy anything. Note, I'm not saying FF sucks just highlighting the fact that FF has such a huge fanbase it is crazy in Japan!
Gran Turismo in Europe and the U.S. FFXIII the full game in Japan. Team Ico's next game. Oh man...it's great to own a PS3. And just wait for E3 and whatever surprises it has in store for us.
Now imagine what would happen if that dumbass Wada actually gets fired and Square can go back to making games for a system that actually sells in Japan
What did i say last year? "Sony Owns Next Year, and beyond" "Industry interest and media will gravitate and embrace the PS3 in early 2009" "PLAYSTATION systems always start slow, but takeoff in the 2-3 year mark" xxx supporters that stole my bubbles: what do you have to say now? LOL. play beyond
all the people!! john lennon.
I agree with all three of you. the PS3 has enough great games on the way to keep these numbers up for a while to come.
i've noticed that 90% of xbox only users are white american...in the usa..i heard them say they do it support a american company
That explains it. Take that comment how ever you want to take it.
But we couldn't even build a Soda can properly.
SEGA bring this game to the west NOW!
Why do you think the 360 doesn't sell in Japan despite all the JRPGs? Because they're busy supporting Sony and Nintendo, the Japanese companies. And I really don't know what to say about Europe...
Proud to be in the 10%. But that can't be right... can it? Well either way white American PS3 owners don't SEEM that scarce.
at least the japanese are supporting are superior product, thats what i would do
Thats a load of crap...people of all types play Xbox 360; thats a real terrible way to try and lump the US into one group. And for those of you that think the US cant build quality products, youre all insane. Im no patriot, but you all dissin on the US like that is unacceptable. Last time I checked, the US (IBM) built the CPU in that CELL (with the help of Sony and Toshiba), in Texas of all places. Along with the 360 CPU as well. And the Wii for that matter. And I just plain do not like blanket statements like that..."well it seems to me that 90% of xbox only people are white", really? Do you know 100% of Xbox owners? Because if you dont, how can you say garbage like that. If thats the crappy mentality of the "PS3 only" owners, then I consider myself lucky to own all three.
Ldubbz are you done talking now?
"i've noticed that 90% of xbox only users are white american...in the usa..i heard them say they do it support a american company" So, how do you explain why Americans bought 100 million PS1's and PS2's, and only about 20 million Xbox 1's? People love to insult Americans for supporting Xbox 360, yet those same Americans have also given Sony (as well as Sega, Nintendo, and Atari) PLENTY of support over the years.
Did you really talk to all of that 90% of xbox owners that are white Americans, and they all said that? Besides, even if that 90% thing were true, I think it would probably have to do more with the fact that the Xbox is the place for FPS games, which are most popular in America.
you cant deny the ps3 is the superior system...so we cant just sit back and believe when xbox fanboys say the xbox is a "better system" cause it "sells more in america" and the Playstation is doomed...really? cause we all know you dont got better games,you dont got blu-ray, no built in wi fi, XBL is pretty much the same as the psn already except it cost $50 a year, by now equals what $200?, and finally most likely the console wont last a year..a lot of the xbox sales now a from replacements...so yea its either you cant afford a ps3, being patriotic, or lying to yourself fanboyism http://www.youtube.com/watc...
what does that say when we support a faulty hardware?
And it really dose bother me to see some of my friends getting shafted by said faulty products, and then trapped in some kind of idiocrasy returning to it? WAKE UP PEOPLE!
Sony keep the good news coming, ps3 is making a comeback. Its just a matter of time when ps3 will owned.
I would not call it a come back the Playstation brand has always been here. I new it would sale when i bought it a launch. Never under estimate a company that has a record of console sales Sony as a company is just bigger than Microsoft if u don't believe me the look it up as far as revenue. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
your hurting my wallet.
slow "down"... dont worry... ur welcome.
"you're hurting my wallet. Don't worry you're welcome.
no duh- i wonder (just wondering) .. wut would happen if both final fantasy 13,final fantasy 7 remake and gran turismo 5 all came out on the same day.. lol holy bajesus that.... acually i cant even imagine wut would go on.
That I'd need a new pair of underwear if that ever happened
http://www.youtube.com/watc... That times 6.5 billion
Given the time it takes Square to make a game, if it were announced now there's now way it would come out at the same time as FF13. Though really, all you'd need would be GT5 and FF13 coming out within a month of each other to envision such madness. Just throw in a trailer for a FF7 remake into that mix, and the universe would implode...
Sales didn't boost just because of a terrible movie that comes with a demo to what will be yet another mediocre game by S-E. That just happened to come out around the same time. The PS3's were really bought up because of Killzone 2 that released in Japan just a few days ago as well as much better games that will come out in the future.
you sound like a bot but your a PS3 fan?...........*i don't get it either* anyways you r stupid as HECK!, to think an FPS would make major sales for the PS3 in Japan is ridiculous, its obviously because of the FF13Demo
Agreed, now imagine your wang on drugs....saaaaaaaaay what?
Couldn't think of a bigger kick in the teeth to Square (Wada) for sale to only continue now that a Square title has been put on the system. Would love to see him explain that to the stockholders while further giving more support to the 360.
That being a set of extra brown safety pants. You're right though. It would be fun to watch.
Keep it up Sony!
ps3 sales surge 274% x- C0CK 360 holding steady at a 33% failure rate. xbutts take it up the rear again......................... .... lol, i made a funny
...If you were to walk into a school in Japan and asked a kid what the "cool" console is, what would they say? Just wondering
japanese people aren't as superficial as americans...
I lived in Tokyo for about 3 years & honestly if hou were to ask a japanese which console to get, im betting they'll probably tell u "screw consoles, buy a psp with monster hunter", honestly..lol But wen I was there the ppl i met mostly own Sony & Nintendo brands obviously.....
Japan should wake-up the ps3 its a joke.
Just like your posting career
Your ignorance really takes the cake.
his ignorance? wow talk about pot calling the kettle black mate!... the only joke around here is you and how dare you use the dude as an avatar, then come out with statements like that! btw your comment doesnt even make sense! "Japan should wake-up the ps3 its a joke." shouldnt it be ps3 is a joke? you dont do your 360 fellow fanboys any justice mate lmao.
calling someone a retard when you cant form a simple sentence is quite sad really dont you think?... well atleast you know how to shake your head! well done!... anyway wasted enough time on you already... good luck with your trolling just try not to be so butt hurt you picked the wrong system... it was your choice afterall and there is always time to trade it in you know... well aslong as its not rrod or e74ed at the moment lol... seeya most certainly wouldnt wanna be ya.
Keep it Up Japan make the hardware sell some more. FFXXX will help the Hardware sells. When ever the CGI Blu-Ray Movie/Demo hits U.S. it will jump as well.
From a little to a little bit more? LOL, sorry couldn't help it. I'm always sarcastic, it's my sense of humor. /end sarcasm
I expect even bigger increases once FF XIII hits.
Just seen this new version and i was amazed! The quality, story, extra scenes! Wow.. truly worth it. Amazing work.
Lol at the big ps3 fan frap fest ^^^^^^^^^^
Peace would be nice. But look at the big bang, was anything but peaceful, maybe we are not meant to have a peaceful existence. But keep it up SONY. Bring on the big guns.
I can't wait for the Australian/European release of the movie :). I want to see the extra scenes so badly.
