Over a month after Final Fantasy XIII‘s release has passed and the sales numbers have finally made their way in. In the first month of sales, Final Fantasy XIII managed to sell more than 1.3 million units in the United States alone – the majority being on PlayStation 3.

According to an early report from SCEA, the PlayStation 3 version of Final Fantasy XIII “sold nearly double the Xbox version.” That’s 828,200 copies sold on PlayStation 3 and 494,300 sold on Xbox 360.

For comparison’s sake, Final Fantasy XII sold 896,000 when it launched for PS2 in the United States in 2006.

Which version of Final Fantasy XIII did you buy?

    That’s really interesting since every commercial I EVER saw for FFXIII was for the 360. Just imagine if they hadn’t advertised at all!

    Sony only seems to promote exclusive titles nowadays. Can’t remember the last third-party title I’ve seen promoted with the infamous “PLAY-STAY-SHON” scream at the end or the “It Only Does Everything” graphic at the end.

    So basically most if not all sales of FFXIII were word of mouth or came from magazine ads that I’m sure had both systems at the bottom of the ad.

      Assassin’s Creed II was the last title SCEA had exclusive advertising rights for, I believe.

      Those commercials were great. I wish I hadn’t yet beaten it. =\

  • Batman too i think. I buy the PS3 version obiously

  • PS3 :D Collectors edition. FF belongs on Playstation but that’s just my opinion lol

    @Incredibilistic, that’s because there’s no need to advertise FF series for PS3. Probably most PS3 owners know and love the series. And i got mine for PS3 as well.
