First week sales figures for Final Fantasy XIII-2 are now in and the game sold an amazing 525,271 copies. This is impressive but is nothing compared to the first week sales of its predecessor.
i will get ffvs 13 once it get a released date im looking forward to ffvs 13 the most ff13xiii2 dosent intrest me enough to warrant a buy maybe a rental thats about it
I reckon FFXIV tarnished the Final Fantasy brand name as whole.
. Somewhere between that (FFXIII), Monster Hunter 3G, and PS Vita debut.
Very true. Plus many people didnt finish 13 so probably won't even look at the sequel
I never trade in games but after getting only 60% of the tropys and beating it i couldn't take it anymore so i took it back to gamestop where they raw doged me. FF13 left a bad taste in my mouth i'll pass on ff13/2.
I didn't hate FF13 as much and some people, but I didn't love it. I'm going to wait for lots and lots of reviews and gamer feedback before I run out and buy it. But if they can fix the problems of FF13 properly, I might buy it at some point.
Well based on what I've read here on N4G, yes it did. A lot of people simply refuse to buy FF13-2 because they didn't like FF13. FF13 was a huge disappointment for me too but IMO it wasn't the piece of garbage some people say it is. I've kept my eyes open and am confident that this will be a lot better game than FF13 was. But I probably still won't buy this until the price comes down a bit.
exactly, just cuz it has the name, if its not a 10/10 that means its a 2/10. its either or with people this gen and its sad, the game isn't bad, just not a good FF game. yet the same people will buy the same crappy COD every year
Why should I settle for mediocrity. If a game isn't good then I don't buy it. Simple as that. I don't care if it's an 'okay' game. If it's not good then I won't buy. The funny thing is I bought FF13 only because it was an FF game. People told me it was bad and that I wouldn't like it. I thought I would be able to ignore it's faults, but little did I know that FF13 was basically uncharted with RPG elements lol. I'm not going to blindly fork over money to buy 13-2 just because SE promises to fix everything that the 'fans' complained about. So far based off the 13-2 footage I've seen, none of the 2 things I disliked the most in 13 were shown to be fixed. The first being the linearity, which I can't accurately tell if it has been address because there have not been enough videos shown and the second being the battle system, which looks more or the same as 13. So yeah, I do look at FF13-2 gameplay to see if there is enough justification to buy the game and currently I don't see any. And I don't buy CoD. Like I said, I don't settle for mediocrity.
Sorry but, the community here is trash, I would never use it as the basis for anything
Partly. So did the disappearance of VS XIII (AKA the one people actually want), the fact that this game was made, the fact that fans were told that they had asked for it while everybody looked at each other and shrugged in a combination of disbelief and bewilderment, the fact that not a single thing to the standard of the companies' respective release records has been made since the merger and the seeming contempt that they have for their fans of late. Also, The Last Remnant, Crystal Chronicles series, the sacking and rape of the Kingdom Hearts series, FFXIV, FF XII (I personally quite liked XII, but most don't) and FF X-2 (why they ever thought of repeating a catastrophe like this again probably has a lot to do with it) all have a part to play. It's called "reaping what you sow," and it's been a long time coming.
I can argue with the fact that FFXII was and is definitely not the reason FF is going down. If any thing, it was a great game. It renewed the J-RPG genre a lot. had great battles, nice gfx, cool new features and epic music. plus hot weird creatures. it recruited new fans for the genre. Only fanboys that hated change were against it, so SE wanted to go back, but they messed up BIG times. And really, the fact that it sold half a million on PS3 even though people have Skyrim to buy or play says a lot. So, it is still too soon to bring out dooms day sighns
Maybe they should have just named it FFXV
That would of made it worse They should rename FF13 Versus however to FFXV
What I don't get is why release a sequal to a game people hate or force themselves to play and finish. So far the hype from fans is FFVS13 wheres that game there are little tidbits floating around the net but nothing new. The hype for that game is diminishing since SquareEnix released a sequal to FF13. I see FF13-2 being a game I see in a bargain bin by next year. I'll buy the game but I'll wait until it hits $20 and hope SquareENix releases FFVS13 before the next gen consoles arrive.
Easy...it was just for the fans of FF13 They know they had a small fanbase still for the game and since FF14 got off to a bad start plus the fact they had left over DLC which they said themselfs (we all know how Sqaure hate wasting content) they decided to make a cash grab sequel to lure in the fanbase which was already there and along the way try and get more suckers to buy into the game......for example exagerating improvments like they were listening to fan feed back when they've never done that, the main one was the battle system.....and by the looks of it, it's the same crappy battle system. Square pretty smart...I'll give them that
*BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow *BAM* - ow...
I'm guessing the announcement of DLC had a hand in it as well..
Yup. The sad thing is it might actually be good. Same thing happened with that 50 cent game.
Because this game is basically the left overs from FF13 cobbled together, it would be like buying the left overs from a meal that's already been eaten and not only that but original meal tasted like ass. If there is one thing that gaming history has taught us is that you cant dumb down RPG's, it always ends badly for the fans and devs.
dont really pay attention to sales figures, still gonna buy xiii-2 and couldnt care less if it doesnt sell well cause the probably of it having a sequel is ridiculously low and if ff is dead as a franchise which i doubt i really wouldnt care either, not like theres a lack of rpgs to choose from
I'm not getting it because of XIII and a LACK of vsXIII. XIII was a taint, and Versus has not been released to earn trust in the series, so yes, XIII is probably hurting sales.
Sequels to Final Fantasy games never sell as much as the original. That's just a fact. Looks like the Final Fantasy XIII-2 hate bandwagon is here.
Why don't they sell as much though? Could it be because they aren't as good as the original? That's a correlation that all sequels to Final Fantasy games share as well.
Somr people felt burnt by FFXIII so there going to wait out and see how good XIII-2 is or not even bother which is why the sales are low. Also FF sequels never have the same excitement as the prequel when they release so you can't really expect them to get close straight away to the sales of the prequel
