LOL.

The article says they could phase out the 360 version. 

A quick phone call to GAME made my friend laugh. His reply ( He's the manager of my local GAME )

" If we are phasing out FF13, then we will phase out every JRPG on 360. Because FF13 is the best selling 360 JRPG. Stocks will lower, but we will always stock it. To be honest the PS3 version isnt all that great either anymore. "

So according to the OP article, Lost Odyssey, Tales, TLR, IU and the rest of JRPG's could be phased out completely.

Oh dear. A slow news day. 

Last time I checked:

Last 4 weeks of sales in Europe for FF13 on both PS3 and 360. 

PS3:                                             360:

9,882                                            12,672

8,844                                            11,806

6,946                                            7,009

8,383                                            6,395

 

 

Next thread. 

Final Fantasy XIII to be phased out completely due to 360 version selling currently better than PS3 version in Europe.

 

LOL.

PS3 version: still full price

360 version: half off

Of course it'll sell better at the moment (hence the potential phase out), but look, 360 sales drop, PS3 sales stablilize

Dont be rediculous.

The article is full of holes and BS comments.

First up excluding the sales of Japan for FF13. 

PS3 sales is 2.2 million.

360 sales 1.41 million. 

Not a big gap. Oh no, COD 4 has sold over 2 million more on 360. PS3 version must be phasing out of stock. LOL.

And everywhere the high street in UK has FF13 on both platforms virtually the same price. Here is UK's LARGEST video games retailer.

http://www.game.co.uk/Games/Xbox-360/Role-Playing/Final-Fantasy-XIII-/~r335928/?s=final fantasy 13#

 

Here is the shock for you. The collectors Edition on 360 is £5 more expensive on the high street than Ps3 version. 

Again the article is a load of bollocks. Yeah a game that has sold 1.4 million in less than 3 months on a single platform is really gonna be phased out. LOL.

http://www.game.co.uk/Games/PlayStation-3/Role-Playing/Final-Fantasy-XIII-Collectors-Edition-/~r346054/?s=final fantasy 13


and the 360 had an excklusive advertising campaign

 

if PS3 was exclusive it would have gotten way more attention than it did,like MGS4 big time

SONY would have marketed it big time and it is is one of the long lasting elite franchise

it would have easily done the 360 and PS3 numbers plus some more on PS3 alone


A nd who is to say MGS4 wouldn't of solf even more if it wasn't exclusive?, whos to say FF13 would of done the same numbers if it was exclusive?, what you think over 1 and a half million people that own a 360 would of just went out and got a PS3 just to play (IMO) a not so great FF title?.

I just dont know if your trying to fool your self or if you really believe this...

and this whole topic is grasping at straws imo, so 1 or 2 online retailers lowering their prices of a game means now that its going to be phased out in the uk? hahaha. yeah cos shops like Game, Gamestop, HMV, Virgin, and a shit load of more don't exist.

And with the people trying to argue this all i can do is lol at you if ye believe this to be true hahaha.

It really is a slow news day.....

many people owning 1.5 360's also had a PS3 but many didn't know it was coming because of the exlcusive advertising for 360 and many chose 360 as they like the console.if exlcusive the advertising would have made people more aware and people with 360 as favoured platform would not have had the choice.

if not those 1.5m people many other people would have hoped in.

 

i was replying to selnors post so do not quote me and say that topic is shit.make another post for that shit

 

if you wanna lol and not participate then why even post


Yes cos ya know anyone that knew about this game would of never knew it was on the PS3 by them ads.

It's not like countless Ps3 mags etc has not been raving about this game for ages,

It sold to that 1.5 million 360 owners cos they already had a 360, or else why would anyone that had both systems get the worst version out of the 2?.

Only reasing why i got the game on 360 was becos i didn't have a PS3 at the time.

But hey if you want to think that over 1.5mil PS360 owners would of picked the game up on 360 over PS3 thats up to you i guess, and if you want to also believe that over 1.5mil 360 owners would of picked up a PS3 just for this game if it was exclusive thats also up to you, even if it makes no sence at all.

And well i didn't know now it was such a crime to reply to a comment that was just so wrong in so many ways and that had no logic behind it at all, im so sorry for raining on your little fantasy.

and this topic is clearly worded wrong as 2 online stores does not = the whole of the UK...

so you think all people who buy games follow games.....................lmao

so you think all who bought MW2 followed the series and when its details came out and when its release date got announced.....................hahahahahahah

many people buy the game because of hype,because of the COOLNESS like in MW's case,to showoff and play what everyone is playing.

not all 360 FF13 buyers would have bought the PS3 version but alot of them would have as many would already own 2 consoles but picked up as they like playing on 360.

also after the two months,the sales that come aren't from the hardcore fanbase but the casual people who have some spare money and they look at the game and think of buying it.if there was no 360 version.more PS3 versions would sell

and the hardcore FF13 fans who didn't buy a PS3 because it was expensive could have bought one.

 

and you are forgetting exlcusivity brings alot of hype,publicity and alot of people hop on the bandwagon because of it.

and SONY advertising alone on multi-plat would have pulled many buyers,leave alone what would have happened if it was exclusive.SONY would have advertised it BIG as it came after the PS3 SLIMMER and price-cut so everyone could buy it

you think i'm talking about the people who follow games,read gaming magazines,chat of gaming forums?

i wasn't.

 

again not mnay of the people know which version is superior iand which is degraded one.MS campaign showed that it was a 360 game then how could people know it.

 

and about the topic being wrong,those stores are BIG.Game is the biggest gaming store in UK.and even if you didn't like it don't quote me and tell me make a new post not in my quote post.



Who cares for such a mediocre game? Take out the FF name it would end up as a huge bomb. I suffer through the first 15 hrs of 'straight line' adventuring to see what is awaiting at the Gran Pulse, and end up with stupid quests that has no personality, basically just kill the monster indicated by red dot and that 's it. 

Hope Ni No Ku Ni will flush out the bad taste in my mouth after this poor excuse of a 'blockbuster'.

Well i dont know about where you live, but over here all you had to do was walk into a gamestore and you could see it was also on the PS3.

And the casuals you're talking about that dont follow game news etc, im pretty sure alot of them wouldn't own an xbox and a PS3, but maybe a Wii and one of the HD consoles.

and no where did game say they where going to stop selling FF13 on the 360, and all that Play.com, are doing is lowering the price..

And FF13 was not a great FF game imo, so even most of the fans would not of got another console just for the sake of this game imo. like what was already said if it didn't have the FF name this game would of bombed big time.



 The problem here is the use of the term 'phasing out'. Like they're getting rid of it or something. They're not, they're just discounting a game which isn't selling alot per week and there is an abundance of stock, something very common in the UK with almost all games and which will inevitably (And already is) happen to the PS3 version.

 There is no story here, except a games retailer is selling a game. Pretty much all games released in the UK go dirt cheap within 6 weeks, FFXII is no except.

I think MS should apologize for marketing Final Fantasy XIII on Xbox 360.

1.5 million on one platform is not a bad thing.

Selnor is right with this one.

its not a bad thing for a normal game not for a super alite long running franchise like FF

So is 3.7 million in the west for an FF game bad?

2.2 million was sold on PS3.

IMO thats great sales for 3 months.

Thats only west remeber.

Whatever you think of the sales of 1.5 million in 3 months. From a business standpoint. There is no way a company would phase out a game that done that well.



Amz = X17.99 P22.99

 

big difference.... then again:

Zavvi = same price 16.95

those are good sales not great

yes 3.7m is good but it could have been much more

just because they all happened in 4months doesn't mean they will do the same in the next coming months the way they are doing per week.ALSO FF13 was discounted from 2weeks on

Only reasing why i got the game on 360 was becos i didn't have a PS3 at the time.

But hey if you want to think that over 1.5mil PS360 owners would of picked the game up on 360 over PS3 thats up to you i guess, and if you want to also believe that over 1.5mil 360 owners would of picked up a PS3 just for this game if it was exclusive thats also up to you, even if it makes no sence at all.

And well i didn't know now it was such a crime to reply to a comment that was just so wrong in so many ways and that had no logic behind it at all, im so sorry for raining on your little fantasy.

and this topic is clearly worded wrong as 2 online stores does not = the whole of the UK...

so you think all people who buy games follow games.....................lmao

so you think all who bought MW2 followed the series and when its details came out and when its release date got announced.....................hahahahahahah

many people buy the game because of hype,because of the COOLNESS like in MW's case,to showoff and play what everyone is playing.

not all 360 FF13 buyers would have bought the PS3 version but alot of them would have as many would already own 2 consoles but picked up as they like playing on 360.

also after the two months,the sales that come aren't from the hardcore fanbase but the casual people who have some spare money and they look at the game and think of buying it.if there was no 360 version.more PS3 versions would sell

and the hardcore FF13 fans who didn't buy a PS3 because it was expensive could have bought one.

 

and you are forgetting exlcusivity brings alot of hype,publicity and alot of people hop on the bandwagon because of it.

and SONY advertising alone on multi-plat would have pulled many buyers,leave alone what would have happened if it was exclusive.SONY would have advertised it BIG as it came after the PS3 SLIMMER and price-cut so everyone could buy it

you think i'm talking about the people who follow games,read gaming magazines,chat of gaming forums?

i wasn't.

 

again not mnay of the people know which version is superior iand which is degraded one.MS campaign showed that it was a 360 game then how could people know it.

 

and about the topic being wrong,those stores are BIG.Game is the biggest gaming store in UK.and even if you didn't like it don't quote me and tell me make a new post not in my quote post.

Well i dont know about where you live, but over here all you had to do was walk into a gamestore and you could see it was also on the PS3.

And the casuals you're talking about that dont follow game news etc, im pretty sure alot of them wouldn't own an xbox and a PS3, but maybe a Wii and one of the HD consoles.

and no where did game say they where going to stop selling FF13 on the 360, and all that Play.com, are doing is lowering the price..

And FF13 was not a great FF game imo, so even most of the fans would not of got another console just for the sake of this game imo. like what was already said if it didn't have the FF name this game would of bombed big time.

yes it was also on 360 in where i live but when people have made up mind then they don't change

again you don't understand a thing.i was talking about the casuals that own 360 and PS3.you think no casual owns them and just Wii.please stop you rigid thinking.you really think all that bought MW2 last year were all hardcores,no they weren't they just follwed the hype and COOLNESS of MW2.

yes no place said they were going to stop selling in on 360 but they just discounted in on 360 and not PS3

you saying FF13 was not a great game is not concerned here as people only know how good the game is after they experience it and hardcore fans buy it anyways.was MW2 upto its expectations and other games,no it wasn't but people still bought it

I think MS should apologize for marketing Final Fantasy XIII on Xbox 360.

1.5 million on one platform is not a bad thing.

Selnor is right with this one.

its not a bad thing for a normal game not for a super alite long running franchise like FF

So is 3.7 million in the west for an FF game bad?

2.2 million was sold on PS3.

IMO thats great sales for 3 months.

Thats only west remeber.

Whatever you think of the sales of 1.5 million in 3 months. From a business standpoint. There is no way a company would phase out a game that done that well.

those are good sales not great

yes 3.7m is good but it could have been much more

just because they all happened in 4months doesn't mean they will do the same in the next coming months the way they are doing per week.ALSO FF13 was discounted from 2weeks on

dont forget last gen RPG fans had hardly any decent WRPG's on consoles. And the gen before that.

This gen there are so many RPG's that are better than FF13 that maybe only FF fans picked up FF 13. The ones who buy any RPG's probably havent bothered due to reviews. It's the first FF game I havent bought.
