@Mafuba. ShroudedDarkenss and DigitalDevilSummoner tried to tell people that FF13 was a great game with great success... Well look how that turned out. You can bet the Final Fantasy fans will keep repeating that for years and years to come. We're not going to forget how we told you so.

@ShroudedDarkness. Its FF13, no on cares about it. The sales prove that FF13 did indeed greatly damage the series. Final Fantasy has been killed on Xbox because of FF13.

Did they just adjust down again? This was at over .90 just a month ago if I remember correctly.

The sales have been quite good this year, this might do over 1 mil, which isn't bad. The series has been killed on Xbox though. The FF13 series has just not gone down well with Xbox fans at all.

@ishiki Spot on, the battle system is fast and engaging and offers a lot depth, It requires planning and precision before and during the battles.

it's got the best battle system out of any FF imo. And the best balance of challenge in a FF game. It's the most interesting RPG mechanically since Demon Soul's for me.

The dialogue, Framerate, and textures are quite bad.
The story is more thematically interesting than people give it credit for.
Imo it's the bad dialogue of which is worse than the already bad dialogue of the
XIII series, in a series that's largely always had dialogue issues outside of a couple exceptions.
(Compared to like SMT, Planescape, etc).

@A203D, I don't think fans have moved on from Final Fantasy but they have certainly stopped caring about the XIII game series, despite showing improvement in later releases it is safe to say XIII was a let down. Maybe one day when there is a reasonably priced collection of all three after several years much like many have felt with X/X-2 the series will get the love but right now nope.
I did like Lighting however... shame the story was crap.

That flop nicely as every1 expected now let's finally move on after SE wasted literally a whole console generation with 3 garbage FF, let's forget that they ever existed & let's w8 to see if SE can redeem it self with FFXV if they can make us forget all about XIII trilogy then that means they succeed, but one thing is certain it won't be easy to forget at all because the experience was unbelievable painfully & it hunt our dreams like a nightmare like Freddy Krueger...

Well I played the demo and it was okay. I heard this one was quite good actually. Its come out too late in the PS3/360 life cycle to matter though. No ones interested in whether it redeems the FF name, its too late, fans have moved on.

They'd better wait a long time before releasing XV so people can forget all about the disaster that accompanied the 13 saga.

I think it's gonna sell more than 1.5 million to be frank. More like 2 - 3 million. These games have a tendency to have decent legs in the US. Especially when it hits that $20 sweet spot price. It's already done way better than I imagined. If it was just gonna do 1.5 million, I think the game would have a much longer road to a million.

@Revuer

XIII = 7.1 million

XIII-2 = 3.1 million

LR = 1.5 million (if they are lucky)


It halves with each entry. They aren't gonna make XIII-4 on a completely new gen when the best they can expect is 800,000 to 1,000,000. And anyway, they already said they were done after this game.

the 13 fanboys make me giggle like a school girl. This is the worst series in ff. I hope it tanks below 1m. They deserve it with all the shitty work they've put into this abomination of a series.

See? I can do that too.

First western review is in on Playstation Lifestyle: 4/10. Not looking good at all. Disappointing, since I thought it looked a lot better than its predecessors.

Well it says something that the X/X-2 remaster has higher preorders than XIII part 3. And thats with more weeks till launch. I know that SE are trying to maximise their profit (which XIII part 3 will likely do even if it doesnt get as great sales) but they are alienating their fan base and that is just stupid.

I dont know why square has been forcing lightning and the 13 sequels down our throats. The fans are just over it at this point. They need to deliver another title on the same lvl as 6, 7 and 12. Call me when they do.

I played the FF13 on Xbox360 till the end, it was ok, but the second was much more stupid and I could not endure more than 3 hours of it on PS3, looked pretty, sure, but so dumb, Jesus Christ.
This one I will not touch, but, enough is enough Square, let us move on please.

Wow, really disappointed to see these numbers. I actually enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 (I guess I'm one of the few). It looks like, at least from a financial standpoint, it's time to put the XIII universe to rest for quite some time. I can't believe the amount of backlash Square took for what I considered to be two solid games (although I understand their criticisms).

For the PS3 version in Japan, FFXIII did 1.46m first week, FFXIII-2 did 539k first week, and now we see FFXIII-3 push just 285k first week. When was the last time, if ever, a major FF game opened up in Japan with just 285k? Wow.
