Japan first Day Sales: Crisis Core FF7 (PSP) : about 350k Pokémon Mystery Dungeon (DS) : about 250k Fate / Tiger Colossum (PSP) : about 40k
that would be really nice. :)
those Japanese sure love their FF.
if it was released world wide simultaneously it woulda sold a million + 1st day easy.
:O amazing, now i'm definitely picking a slim psp, since i gave my old one away, cant wait to see how FFXIII and Versus XIII does on PS3
Hopefully, if Square sees enough software sales with CC, they'll do the long-awaited remake of FF7 *crosses fingers*
I sincerely hope FFXIII can be made into a similar phenomenon. FFVII was an integral part in making the ps1 a success and changed the entire genre 10 years ago.
I wanna buy this game but never completed FF7 so i am going to hold off buying it until a FF7 remake comes out on PS3 damn N64 had me hooked back in them days banjoo kazoie and too many AAA games to complete but i wil be back for ff7 remake
Did you read the latest manga chapter (370)? it was insane. lots of things were revealed about madara and yondaime. plus i have a theory that Itachi is in fact fighting for the "greater good" ... it seems possible with how things are turning out.
a remake of ff7 would rock, and yeah 370 was weekid:D cant wait till 371;)
i have to go buy this, please come out sooner, it looks to be awesome, and by the sales, and reviews, i think its a first day buy too
Playing it now :) had to pick up the import from play-asia...it's hard to believe this game is on psp it looks so good, not to mention the Advent Children cutscenes *minor spoiler* And you thought the Cloud vs. Sephiroth fight from Advent Children was good..the fight between Genesis and Sephiroth is amazing
i am really interested in how the battle system is in CC.. can you delve a little into how it plays out. o yea, how is zack as the main character? likable? annoying?
Zack acts like a kid pretty much, he's happy and a little clueless sometimes, but he's not a bad character. There's Angeal and Sephiroth always going with him on missions so he's not much of a leader as Cloud. I'm sure he'll grow up like all the lead characters do. Also right now I'm using this regular sword with him while Angeal is carrying the big Buster Sword, so that just makes you look more weak, but the DMW (limit break) moves look amazing for PSP, the summons are also cutscene videos with Advent Children graphics that you can of course skip since they're long and it'll cut back to PSP graphics and the end of the summon move. If you've seen Blue Dragon's summons you'll know what I mean, but these are more nice to look at. The battle system is like Kingdom Hearts but slower. L and R is to choose from attacking to doing magic spells to using items, unlike Kingdom Hearts where you hold a button and chose between square, X, circle, or triangle to do a move. It would have been cool if you could use the directional pad to do those other moves, but you also move with it as well. Also if you hit an enemy from behind it's always critical so that's a strategy within itself. Waiting for the enemy to attack and roll out the way with Square, and then slice him from behind. Once you get used to the system though, you get used to being midway into a move and then pushing L or R how ever many times to switch to a different move and doing a cool combo for major damage...you just gotta learn where everything is. So far i'm only 5 hrs into it so I'm sure there's alot more to be seen.
Whens this game coming out in NA?
WOW super O.O
That is a $hit load of games for a handheld in one country, in one day, really impressed, and definitely picking up the new PSP.
Animal Crossing DS had 400k PREORDERS, alone.. But definitely good for the PSP. Software's finally gotten going =D
Eh yeah...Animal Crossing did good I have to admit. Crisis Core came out too late for one, everyone's been waiting for this since forever, so by the time it came out the hype kind of died down for it. Also there's less PSP owners in Japan, and most owners got a PSP for Monster Hunter, so once word really gets around how good the game is, it'll eat away at the Japanese handheld charts little by little. The game had a really quiet release though in my opinion...
NOT. Japan gotta have that FF games. Come on FFVII console remake!
Only decent game on psp. Might have to pick this one up.
FF7 will own you lol!!
That's a good # if it sold out.
I just bought a PSP Lite and Slim for this game. I would like to know how to play downloaded games on PSP. Before you start flaming I support gaming and buy original games. I just cannot wait to try this, it will take time to release in EU. Crsis core is alreadyt on torrents :S I must try it and I will buy it the day it comes to EU.
Wow, the Japanese love dem some FF7, lol. Who can blame dem i loved it the first tym i played it back on the Ps1, and i still pop it in 2 my ps2 from tym 2 tym wen i feel nostalgic. Wat i believe is dat if Sony wats PS3 sales to spike, especially in japan dey sud parter wid Square and figure out some wasy to get the remake out and maybe wid a special edition PS3, den i bet u the Ps3s will be selling out like hot cakes. Dats jus my opinion.
Add first day psp sales in US and EU: That is the amount sold in first day. could be fastets selling psp games
"animal crossing had 400k pre-orders" I wonder how many of those people who pre-ordered it regret buying it, it's such a boring game
then again, it's Final Fantasy. I wonder how long it will take to make 1 million of they get enough in stock for a good week?
I heard a lot of sweet things about ff7 crisis core..they better release it here soon..im tired of watchin videos of it..i need it now!!
Now imagine if that was a FF7 remake
Didn't Monster Hunter triple that on its first day?
