JAPAN: PS3 sales surge 274%

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.

dude_uk3466d ago

technology would not be so advanced without war; a sad truth that is.

Gue13466d ago

It is not the movie Gun_Senshi is the demo!

Surfman3466d ago

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.

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!

Lifendz3466d ago

Gran Turismo in Europe and the U.S.

FFXIII the full game in Japan.

Team Ico's next game.

Oh's great to own a PS3. And just wait for E3 and whatever surprises it has in store for us.

IzKyD13313466d ago

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

DARKKNIGHT3466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

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

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 the usa..i heard them say they do it support a american company

Samer3053466d ago

That explains it.

Take that comment how ever you want to take it.

iamtehpwn3466d ago

But we couldn't even build a Soda can properly.

BYE3466d ago

SEGA bring this game to the west NOW!

cranium3466d ago

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...

Snake Raiser3466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

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.

Claudinho693466d ago

at least the japanese are supporting are superior product, thats what i would do

Ldubbz3466d ago

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.

Samer3053466d ago

Ldubbz are you done talking now?

soxfan20053466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

"i've noticed that 90% of xbox only users are white 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.

Qui-Gon Jim3466d ago

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.

Claudinho693466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

you cant deny the ps3 is the superior 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 yea its either you cant afford a ps3, being patriotic, or lying to yourself fanboyism

what does that say when we support a faulty hardware?

40cal3466d ago

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?
