Final Fantasy XIII's First-Day Sales Numbers Are In

Final Fantasy XIII was released in Japan yesterday. A day later, Square Enix have released figures revealing how many copies of the game were sold during its first 24 hours on the shelf.

And that number has "exceeded one million". Which, well, makes it sound like they sold between 1 and 1.1 million. The news was disclosed in a statement released by Square Enix today, which also states that copies of the game sold bundled with a PS3 - as part of the "Lightning Edition" - were not included in that figure. If you account for those, the figure would be slightly higher.

Square Enix said yesterday that two million copies of the game had been shipped to retailers. Now, there's no way Sony sold one million Lightning Editions, so... anyone hanging on an import copy, don't sweat it, doesn't sound like the game's completely sold out.


    ..and counting..

    They probably sold 1000001, lol.

    I just hope this isn't as much of a letdown as FFXII was (in my opinion that is).

      I don't think it's just your opinion... I don't think I've seen anybody say they liked it...

      Hell, I preferred playing Dragon Quest VIII more than FFXII, and I'm not exactly a big fan of turn-based games...

    I've been watching it for many many hours on for the last couple of days... believe me, I don't think it's gonna be a letdown :D It looks so cool in action

    I hope this game is as magical a journey as final fantasy X. I wish i ps3 played ps2 games.......... D: D: D: D:

    final fantasy 13 please dont dissapoint :D.
