According to VGChartz (you know the drill), Square Enix has watched Final Fantasy XIII get rung up at retail roughly 1.2 million times this past week here in the West. If true, I’d consider FFXIII to have had a successful launch for the developer/publisher in comparison to other JRPGs that have released in this region in the past.
VGChartz also has taken the leap of faith and claimed that 61% of those sales are for the PlayStation 3. This would be a staggering difference in sales and a complete blowout when given the install base of both consoles. Considering Aaron Greenberg’s recent comments about almost doubling Sony in sales within North America, Microsoft can’t be too excited over these sales figures.
The total world wide sales for Final Fantasy have now reached over 3 million so long as these numbers remain accurate. These sales stats also solidify the notion that Final Fantasy will always truly be a PlayStation franchise and anyone who thinks differently is only kidding themselves.
