European and North American first run shipment crosses the three million mark.
Final Fantasy Fans Will always support the franchise... Including yours truly. Bias reviews are bias...
And of course, the 2 million in Japan. Not bad for a mediocre Final Fantasy. Playstation 3, home of Final fantasy versus 13, Final Fantasy 14 and the Final Fantasy franchise.
will remain till the end of this generation i think!! maybe they will ship a little bit more but i doubt it!!
well I gues NPD is being topped by FF13 this month
I got my copy still wrapped right on my desk but no PS3! ARGH!!!
^^ lol me too, my new ps3 is on the way ^^...thank god for dell
That's going to translate into some major first week sales for the PS3 version, because we all know "shipped" means "sold" right? /s
So when M$ says we shipped X million consoles, they are considered sold and when SE ships 5 million units, they are shipped not sold? What am I missing?
My Game Crazy had no copies of the PS3 version and only 2 copies left for the 360. The game is going to sell amazingly well
i went to target this morning with my brother. All the 360 copies were gone Unfortunately for him he doesn't have both systems like I do and they had about 10 ps3 copies left. I'm enjoying the story but man they weren't kidding about it being insanely linear.
Got my copy at gamestop as soon as i got off work. They said that almost all copies sold were PS3 versions. Some kid bought the 360 version that was in front of me though.
I work for gamestop and in the district I work at there were only 300 copies of the 360 sent while there were 2000 ps3 copies sent. In the store I work there were only 7 copies sent for 360, out of which only 3 were picked up. As for the ps3 we had 60 almost all is gone.
when i picked up my Ps3 copy, EB games still had a full stock of the 360 version
I'm sure the Target in "360 Fanboy LA LA Land" is all sold out of 360 copies!
well its an amazing game. you can just smell the high quality of the game. its not perfect and it is no ff7 or 6, but it feels like ff game. i am a fan and i like it.
Agreed, dispite the critisism it's still a fun and challenging game xD
we on n4g are hardcores that would nitpick on the difference in the ps3 and 360 versions but majority of the world which is more than 98.percent .. wouldnt bother and would get it.. just like bayonetta.. gd times for gamers..and SE can swim in the cash that have been dreaming
We on N4G have a console war where certain aspects on one side used one pixel better versions of multiplatform games to boost their argument that their console of choice was superior. Now the other side is rubbing it in their faces when the "multiplatform destruction of all ports" happens to them! Last gen it was "our XBOX version is superior because the XBOX has superior hardware"; And the reply was, "Yes it does, enjoy your superior multiplats and 1/10 developer support". Only this gen has people that are in denial about which system has hardware superiority and devs willing to cater to the hardware companies moneybags!
I bought the 360 version YEAH !
Unlucky mate. If only you have a HDTV and PS3 eh? ;-)
congratulations you have prooved that you are an idiot.
cool story bro.
Your ignorance is not bliss
Loving the game! it is all i wanted from a FF game. SE deserve praise and only praise.
Great shipped numbers for the FF franchise, Even though I'm a FF supporter since day 1, I will take a pass on 13 for a couple of months till I cover owning more players on BFBC2 and covering heavy rain/GOW3/Yakuza. There is just a influx of game releases around the same time for the ps3....I cant keep up. Good times.
I feel your Pain. I couldn't wait though and picked it up yesterday and immediately starting playing it. I still have to beat Mass Effect 2, and Heavy Rain. Plus God of War 3 is next week so I am going to work on Heavy Rain and FF13 this weekend and hopefully beat Heavy Rain at least before God of War 3. It may be a while before i get back to Mass Effect 2 because it is back down to the bottom of my list now with all the big name titles coming out that i have been waiting on.
i've played the 360 version and its quite good, i would never have guessed it only ran at 1024x576 in a million years, the cutscenes look good (obviously not blu ray quality, more like very good upscaled DVD which is perfectly adequate)
The guy says something nice about the 360 version and he gets a disagree. So many hateful lurkers on this site.
well it only goes to show how scarred some people were when FF went multiplat =\
yeah, I have the PS3 version and my cousin got the 360 version. We loaded both on my tv and flipped between HDMI's and we could see a difference. It was like the diff between Blu-Ray movie and DVD. Not that big of a deal though, if you love FF just play the game no matter what console you have. Im loving the game.
I don't remember what DVD quality looks like!
360 owners wouldn't have noticed the quality difference it on their SDTV's and the sound quality through its speakers anyways.
It's not 3 millions sold but shipped
Now i wonder if i did the right thing, has anyone got both versions to comment ? I read the 360 runs smoother and has better anisotropic or something, but has more jaggies and lower resolution Can't wait to play it, no matter what reviews may say, FF13 seems like one of the best mastery in art crafted game i have seen for years, the detailed world and monsters will be a huge inspiration for my game, like all older FF games were, haters have no taste IMO
Dude, stop, just stop it.
Is that so bad ?
Your not so subtle attempt at trolling fails.
you dont deserve to play FF if you remotely think the 360 version is better....just read some of the reviews and LOT....besides use COMMON SENSE
I'm 3 hours in and I'm enjoying it. I love that they finally decided to support English speaking JRPG fans and work on the voice syncing. It's still not great but so far it is far better than any other JRPG I have ever seen.
Slap FF on it and it will sell, a bit like Halo with ODST, but I've been playing since Monady and its not the same game.
***SPOILER ALERT*** I knew this was a true and worthy FF game at the early battle with Anima... then the cutscene after... the reflections of the fireworks on the lake. WOW!!!!!!!!
Go go sales!
2.5 m belongs for ps3.. mark my words ;)
with this 3.0 m this proves the version of 360 was necessarily for more sales.
I dont care whatever the review says they are just bias.As a matter of fact, I already got 3 copies ( 1 japanese version , 2 english version PS3). LONG LIVE FINAL FANTASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How are the reviews biased? For what reason would they be? They're some Square Enix haters or something? All 50+ of them? You are an absolute joke. Your name is 'finalfantasymaster'. If anyone is bias here, it is you. You're such a blind FF fanboy you wouldn't see that if it hit you in the face.
2+ hrs in and the linear game design, just keeps me in the right spot, so I am enjoying the stellar graphics and gameplay...the audio over a 7.x just is unreal....so far no issues with the linearity..
got my copy yesterday (ps3) and i played it now stop for 12hrs yesterday , and i must say it is THE best looking game so far to date not even avatars graphical poweress compares. the gameplay is slow for a while and yes linear but you get so wrapped up in the story ( which is amazing btw) that you tend to forget and before you know it bam you have summons and magic and from there it only gets better. its challenging , fast paced, and B E A UTIFUL. esp on my 50" 1080p plasma. now we just need the 3d. ^_^ @ da truth haha bubble for you friend i lol'd a little cause i forgot what it looks like as well
I'm on chapter 6 and the game is amazing. FF 13 >>>>> FF 12
