Media Create has published the latest software sales figures from Japan.
Wow, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles really is selling in Japan. Well, not THAT well yet (too early to tell), but it looks like it's doing much better there than in North America.
So 1 month after FFXIII launched in Japan no less and its already out of the top 10?, selling easily less than 22k this week and likely to fall even further so quickly. Wasn't this the game that would push the ps3 past the wii in Japan forever? Damm and nintendo cleaning up with NSMB been out longer and still at 139k for the week, well over 117k more than the much hype ps3 saviour FFXIII. Wow. http://www.n4g.com/industry... -Guess I was right. 360 sales dismal as usual in Japan. Keep fighting the good fight micro, lol. JOY
@JOY FF13 is selling at almost the same rate as other FF games on the PS2 , considering the current PS3 install base over there the attach rate for this game is amazing ...it will hit 2 million eventually and it actually did move a lot of PS3's ....
Remember, there are ONLY 4 million PS3 in Japan. How many are actually used for gaming above Blu-Ray movies is still undetermined. The gaming community could have all bought FFXIII and that's why there are very little sales now.
That game is killing. I want that game NOW! Tell us when it releases in the US Square!
Square Enix should focus more on Kingdom Hearts. It is an excellent franchise, and is selling very well. I think that Final Fantasy and KH are the strongest franchises SE has. Hopefully we get to see Kingdom Hearts 3 soon(er)!
err...you forgot about Dragon Quest? that's by far their biggest franchise if I'm not mistaken! even if it's not bigger than FF, it's still way bigger than KH!
Great numbers for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, is a great game it's nice to see that people are buying it.
am i the only 1 surprised that mw2 is the 2nd most sold for the ps3 there?
soo.. ff13 sells around 20 k in this week.. in the other week ff sells 80 k and now below of 20k.. danm!!! this is very VERY sad! game is wort in sales in the series of ff.. this game not gonna reached in 2.0 m in japan ( mark my words) i hope square learn the lesson and stop make mult games ;)
