Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3)
at 4:48PM PST on August 26, 2009.
It is a mainstream FF product, we just haven't heard a lot about it yet since its release is farther away.
FF XIII is on 360 and PS3. There are people who own both systems or will decide to buy a PS3, FF Versus XIII will get all its sales on PS3 instead of 50/50 or 60/40 on PS3 & 360.
Why would someone buy FF Versus after buying FF XIII for 360? Its a spiritual sequel to the previous game they bought, its a new AAA game, they like FF games, they've been introduced to FF through FF XIII. Any of those.
Of course a single platform will not sell more than a multiplatform if you combine both consoles sales. But a single platform game that comes out on a future larger userbase could sell more than the title before it that was available on 2 consoles. There's only one place to buy it, not two.
It's not faulty logic at all. A game available on 360 & PS3 will see many sales go to the 360 version. A game only on PS3 will not have any people get it for another console. Therefore, FF Versus can sell more on PS3 than FF XIII does on PS3.
85+ million FF games have sold, 27 million SF games have sold. It is not ancient history. Look at the recent figures for games in each series. Both have continually had sequels.
Furthermore, SF's popularity was highest farther back than FF's was. (1992 versus 1997). Sales data argues against your belief that SF is more popular. I don't know why you bring up cross platform appeal when we're arguing about an exclusive to one console. You originally were talking about SF being "much bigger than FF in terms of base".
I find it unbelievable that you think this game may never be completed as it's a major title with a huge budget, directed by Tetsuya Nomura, and part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII compilation. Why would it be a quiet release when it is a major game from SE, with most dedicated fans more excited about it than 13. If it stays exclusive, it will also get a lot of press as well.
Blockbuster title that has sold less? What are you referring to?
As I said before I can see it going under 5 million or over. I have no position in this game, but I can't sit by and have someone talk about it the way you are when I highly disagree with what you're saying.
