Well there is a long time between now and when FFXIII comes out so let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Since Square-Enix are whores for playing the field I don't see FFXIII going cross platform but you do have to remember that FFXII had a console with an instalation base of 120million and was a follow up to perhaps the most successful GBA game of all time, Tactics Advance. FFXIII has quite the disadvantage compared to its predicessor, let's just hope that Blue Dragon doesn't deflate the hype for FFXIII or Square's ability to make fresh games.
I'm so confused by this post.
FF7 and FFX sold better than the rest, and they were the first on the PS1 and PS2, respectively. I expect FF13 will do quite well.
With that argument out of the way...
|Final Fantasy Tactics||Square||1.37||0.95||0.13||2.45|
|Final Fantasy Tactics Adv||Square||0.46||0.79||0.40||1.65|
Now, I understand your connection with the world of Ivalice, but most successful GBA game of all time? Huh? The original PS game sold better...and I'm pretty sure FF12 was a stand-alone game just in the same universe.
And again, FF12 was a different combat style that a lot of people didn't like as much. FF13 not only returns to form from what I hear, but it looks ridiculously good in the few videos we've seen so far. It'll do fine.
Anyway, the original argument was that DQ does not Dwarf FF in Japan, it just sells a little better.
I am greatly looking forward to TGS.
