    Xbox 360 Final Fantasy XIII Ignored in Japan

    You'd think having a numbered entry in the Final Fantasy series would give the Xbox 360 a boost in Japan. But this didn't happen. Final Fantasy XIII's Xbox 360 version was released last week to Japan and failed to place in the top 20, meaning it sold less than 22,600 units (the sales figure for number 20). Xbox 360 hardware failed to see a boost even as other systems began to see the start of their annual year-end sales surges.

    The Xbox 360 version of FFXIII was released to Japan about a year after its PS3 counterpart. Square Enix gave it budget pricing and released it as an "international" version, with English voiceovers and the english theme song "My Hands." In terms of content, the game was given a new easy mode. For collectors, the game shipped with a booklet containing artwork, a look at unused event scenes, and a newly created after story.

    I wonder did SE break even for the cost of printing these disc up? They should have knew better. Greedy greedy greedy lmao

    edit:its under both sections at ign because it covers media create numbers in that article also.

    Why did PS3.ign cover this? Seems a bit weird.
    Anyway, no surprises there.

    360 does poorly in Japan and PS3 does poorly in NA. No news there.

    It's particularly surprising to me because the Xbox brand never had a fanbase in Japan to begin with whereby Sony lost theirs overnight in America.

    In fact the Xbox this gen is more popular in Japan than it was the last gen and in gen 8 I think the new Xbox will probably get 2.5 million sales in Japan by the time it's done, means that Microsoft is doing something right.

    the percentages by which one outsells the other in the different regions are vastly different however...

    6 kinect titles in the Uk's top 40

    How insane is this!

    http://www.chart-track.co.uk/index.j....jsp&ct=110015

    i would say the kinect titles have some serious legs. Kinect sport's is also outselling GT5 which i find crazy!

    to think how many people said kinect would fail.

    Out of curiosity, do the Kinect Sports bundled with Kinect count as sales?

    Wow, thats pretty impressive for Kinect over here in the UK. I'm surprised that so many people have bought Kinect here. I really was expecting it to flop after all the lag issues and space requirement issues that effect loads of UK residents.

    Kinect sport's isn't bundled with kinect Tyrien, it's kinect adventures, and no that one doesn't count

    maybe the lag issues and space issues were exaggerated Ahmad?

    Yep maybe, but i know lots of people who have tables in front of their tv's or limited space between their tv and sofa. Plus the average UK living room size is considerably smaller here than the US. Of course there are loads of houses that can work with kinect but i wasn't really expecting so many people here to buy it.

    Xbox 360 tops UK console sales in 2010

    Seems to be the trend in the English speaking world.

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=281937

    The UK video games and interactive entertainment industry generated 2.875 billion in revenue during 2010, down from 3.311 billion a year earlier, according to data released today by UKIE.

    Xbox 360 and PS3 brought in the most cash from hardware and software sales, with Microsoft's console edging Sony's for the No.1 spot. Oddly, UKIE's figures don't mention specific data for Nintendo.

    Total sales of console games came in at 1.45 billion, with Xbox 360 and PS3 showing growth over 2009. Xbox 360 games generated 538 million and PS3 titles 414 million. In terms of units sold, 18.2 million Xbox 360 games were snapped up, versus 13.8 million PS3 titles.

    The total revenue for console hardware sales amounted to 800 million, headed by Xbox 360 with 232 million and followed by PS3 with 229 million. Combined hardware sales of the two platforms totalled 2.3 million units.

    During 2010, 63 million console and PC games were sold domestically, which works out at more than one per person in the UK. Call of Duty: Black Ops became the UK's fastest - and best selling game - in history.

    Meanwhile, gaming peripherals generated 545m in 2010, with total sales hitting 25.8 million units.

    UKIE director general Mike Rawlinson said: "Despite 2010 being a tough year for the economy, the video games and interactive entertainment industry continues to perform strongly.

    "As the UK's leading creative industry, these figures demonstrate the increasingly popular position of video games in everyone's everyday lives, and the strength that the sector has to see it through tough times."

    I never questioned that would Kinect sell well, with that kind of marketing it was bound to sell.
    Better question is how long this is going to last that people have any interest on it. At least for now there's no stopping it.

    If Kinect Sports is outselling GT, doesn't that basically mean that Kinect itself is outselling GT

    Kinect made me a believer, but maaaan, I did not see that coming.

    Well aslong as ms and devs make good games there shouldn't be any probs with it sustaining. I mean kinect sports has had really good legs, so has dance central. Much better than the competition. If kinect fails now it's ms's serious fault. It's obv got the sales if a kinect title is outselling the competitions biggest title. Dance central is even doing much better than rock band 3, which is a major shame to me.

    apparently the five Kinect games in the Top 40 this week have nearly sold as many as the 8 that were on sale in its launch week.

    how the hell is it outselling GT? thats the biggest shock for me, after all the hype GT had it seems to be dying down quickly, especially considering the UK loves GT.

    Basically and bluntly, the game is incomplete and inconsistent.

    If you were able to check a lot of forums out there that have no beef with the PS3 console or the games themselves on the system, there many many in number that were not too happy with the overall presentation of GT5.

    I'm amazed Kinect titles are doing this well though, I guess the timing was strategic for MS and a real benefit.
