I guess that's what a year's worth of exclusivity and a pretty rubbish reception will do to the PS3 sales. Didn't get close to Vesperia on PS3 vs. 360!

Playing this game, really like the combat. The story is OK, some of the locations are well detailed whereas some are not, especially one of them is really bad it hurts your head.

Good game though, no doubt, good combat variety among different characters which keeps things somewhat fresh.

@ Avarice28

People bought PS3's for FFXIII because they believed it was going to be an exclusive (and released a lot earlier). And when the PS3 version has it's pluses (compressed video, etc) then yea of course the PS3 would sell well.

The comparison is not warranted tbh though - using FF as the benchmark. I harshly doubt the amount of guaranteed money (as well as funding for development) is not substantial enough to keep developers making games exclusive to 360.

If Sony wants more games, they'd make the initiative like MS is doing. I guess they don't care?

*Sigh* As I said before.. This game is a patched up port of the 360 version. That means it's barely costing SE anything to release this. The fact that it sold more than 290k copies worldwide at the cost equivalent of $60 and with hardly any advertisement is amazing. Even more so that it sold over 100k copies in the U.S. alone!

Is a shame too, I wanted this game when it first came out. Releasing it a few week before FFXIII and not at the same time as the Xbox version, as a PS3 fanboy it upset me and now I don't want it at all. x.x

@Puggsley

If Square did not learn their lesson from the 'large' profits that they made with the Final fantasy sales on the ps3. Then they are destine to go out of business betting against the ps3 with yet another 360 exclusive. That is what I call "franchise" career suicide.

@ DaBuddahN
I agree JRPGs would sell better on the PS3 if released at the same time. However, MS is clearly offering something outstanding to make developers do timed exclusives.

I don't know what Square is planning. But we'll definitely see more JRPG exclusives for the 360.

You guys do realize that this game is a patched up port of the 360 version right? Meaning that it's barely costing SE anything to release this. The fact that it sold more than 220k copies worldwide at the cost equivalent of $60 and with hardly any advertisement is a very, VERY good thing.

Wow, the sales of this game really bombed. I don't think Square will be doing anymore timed exclusives against the PS console. I mean, I don't want to sound like a fanboy, but JRPG's will always sell better on the PS3, than the 360... If released at the same time.

The game includes Spanish, French and other subs for the game, which ussually means that it will sell better than the avarage JRPG here.

It was in the top 5 best selling PS3 title's of FNAC a couple of weeks ago in Spain.

@Lord matrix
Time exclusive may "back fire" on the other version due to the fact that this game is one pace to probably sell 700k to 800k LTD. The legs are already on par with its 360 counterpart after being on sale for just two weeks.

timed exclusivity paid off on this one big time. At least those that want to play it on PS3 can now though. Most obviously didn't feel like waiting and grabbed it for X360.

the reason the US PS3 version at least didn't outsell the 360 version is because a lot of trolls went around telling PS3 owners not to buy the game until it drops to $30. Many people said the game is bad, but it's really not. I'm guessing it's pissed off 360 people who either don't like JRPGs in the first place, so it wasn't for them or they wish they didn't buy the inferior version.

But it's results like this that will mean less PS3 US releases of games. Just look at Vesperia and how that's not coming to North America.

im shocked. shitty sales for a great RPG Experience.

SO is not perfect, but better than MUCH other Games that came out. :(..

but otherwise i can understand it, the 360 Version costs the half, and the cosmetic changes arent worth 30 bucks, so i expect legs when it gets cheaper.

Wonder if this will outsell the Xbox 360 version.
It came out a while ago for the 360 and doesn't have any improvements/additional content but it is a JRPG and there are roughly three times as many PS3 as 360 in Japan.
