Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PS3 moved over half a million copies after shipping in Japan last week -- around one-third of the sales the original Final Fantasy XIII saw just two years ago.
It's the sequel to one of the worst received Final Fantasies of all time, were people really expecting huge sales? If anything this is good news and should give SE an incentive to go the extra mile to make FFXV the best they can make it
or just finish ff versus lol
It has been a bad spell but not one SE can't come back from. A lot of the complaints i see is about Versus not coming out which shows it's still an highly anticipated game. If the franchise was damaged beyond repair then no one would care for Versus or Type-0. They have the talent but they really messed up this gen. From what we've seen and heard both Versus and Type-0 do not make the same mistakes that XIII did and they look much better overall. IMO SE need to make Versus as good as possible and probably seperate it from XIII. Also making it exclusive for it to utilise the PS3 would also be best becausse fixing the FF brand is much more important than a one off payment to make it multiplatform.
"Also making it exclusive for it to utilise the PS3 would also be best becausse fixing the FF brand" Its more for not pissing fans off any more. FF XII was crap, and they're putting out a sequel before versus has come out, and they already trademarked a 3rd as well (the company they do trademarks through trademarked the XII-3). Making Versus multiplat is just gonna make them look greedy as hell seeing as they announced it being exclusive a long long time ago.
its the very first FF game i've skipped, because all my anger from years and years of them destroying the franchise has finally built up to the point of no return. I will no longer support Square-Enix until a REAL Final Fantasy game is released. (True FF Fans know what I mean when I say "REAL")
No, we don't.
didn't the vita and monster hunter tri released this month?
Don't use your logic here on this site. :p On a sidenote, the game's been well received pretty well by the JPN fanbase so far. Fixed issues with a lot of things that 13 had.
I'm planning on buying FFXIII-2, but hopefully this will encourage them to focus their efforts on Versus now.
Is there actually a game Versus? The reason I ask is the only thing I've ever seen was a trailer for it but I've never seen any game play footage.
Some gameplay has been shown but not much. It's throughout the video.
FF13-2 fail!, cause fans is not asking for FF13 sequel at the first place, only dumb wada along with it's team wants to make a sequel for that franchise, and now here it is, it sells less cause few FF fans wants it... And majority of FF fans wants Versus13 instead but SE keeps on dodging the issue like dumb!
This is what happens when you have an exclusive game that needs to be split up due to a deal being struck with Microsoft. Due to size restrictions they could NOT fit the whole game on DVD's so they decided to split the game and double (and perhaps even triple) dip. What we ended up with was a downgraded, linear, snore fest with a completely nonsense story. Fire the money grubbing CEO and get someone in who understands the importance of not burning your diehard fans and perhaps we will see a return to glory. Somehow I just don't see that happening. FF13 = crap FF14 = major crap FF13-2 = WHO CARES
Yea keep telling that to yourself... Keep saying if it had a little extra room then all the problems in the game wouldve magically dissappeared. Go on, see if it doesnt make you look like an absolute idiot.
I used to be a huge FF fan but now I don't care if SE burn. I won't be buying FF13-2 after the horrible FF13 and first week sales for the whole world are going to see drops like that too. The biggest mistake SE did was put FFV13 on hold to bring us a sequel to the worst FF game ever made. When SE announce Verses as a multiplat title which is going to happen we all know it will then SE can kiss goodbye to the rest of the PS fans that still have hope for the company even with all their false promises.
Because making it ps3 exclusive somehow makes it awesome, what with its unicorn magic and all right?
Why is that what I said??? Whats the matter did my comment offend a little Xbot. Because promising a PS3 exclusive and then going back on your word is telling your loyal fans(some of whom bought a PS3 for the FF franchise)That you don't give a shit about them. FF will always be a PS franchise no matter what platform its on. When people think FF they don't think MS or Nintendo, they think Sony, they think FF7 which was the game that made this franchise very sucessful. With out Sony and its fan base SE and Squaresoft would not be the company they were and the lack of PS3 support from SE this gen has been killing their company bit by bit and the financial troubles SE are in right now proves that shit. So keep acting like you know shit boy the numbers for software SE sold on a Sony platform compared to ever other platform out there is more than enough evidence to back my statements
Without going multiplat the game would have been received way better. (That doesn't mean that the game would have been better) Also, Square managed to have every decision wrong lately. What's the point of releasing exclusive DLC for 360 on FFXIII-2 People who buy part 2 surely has already part 1 and since the save unlocks something, why should someone change console? This show the idiocy of Squenix, not able to be a little logic about stuff, but only running behind money.
Because of this stupid game, FFversus13 development is haltered.
Its a sequel to a previous Final Fantasy game. Who was expecting it to sell anywhere close to XIII?
I will only get it because the platinum trophy looks ridiculously easy. No treasure hunter this time around.
Careful with that comment, I watched the whole stream of the game and I can tell you that some of the trophies are a bitch to get, finding all the collectible fragments may take you at least 80 hours or so.
