Good news for MS, they will blow out the competition with MW2 sales. The bundle was announced. Big NA win for sure.

so a multiplat game which is a sequel to a game that went huge on the very same consoles (COD4) bundled with xbox 360's will blow the competition out of the water............ok

ALSO STAGE.....your prediction about FF13 not doing 1 million in 1 week.....well why did you do that as a bet?

Finally I agree....this will be BIG for PS3

they should have a FF13 themed ps3....500K of them

Its obvious STAGE is FPS blindness and been living under a rock if doesnt know the sucess of FF.

OT: FFXIII to be bundled with PS3? I did not see that coming lol jk.  This will definately sell more than Xbox360's MW2 bundle.

::@ comment in red::

That is a funny joke. A final Fantasy XIII bundle will never outsell a MW2 bundle. FFXIII will sell very well though.

Well, some analysts think the bundle couls help push some 500,000 PS3's in Japan.

You think the MW2 bundle could top that? I'm not saying the MW2 bundle won't sell. But there's a difference between an exclusive bundle for a multiplatform game, and an exclusive bundle for an exclusive game in the region where that game has been desired since the gen's opening. FFXIII is going to selll a TON of PS3s in Japan, I mean a TON!

Modern Warfare sold over 7 million copies on the Xbox 360 without a bundle. Without a bundle=murder.

Like I said, I expect the MW2 bundle to do good, quite good in fact, but not shift 500,000 consoles...

A modern warfare bundle + Xbox 360 during the holiday season= It could do more than that + sell higher. This is one of the highest grossing western titles.

Remains to be seen, but I don't think it will.

My point was that the Xbox 360 was finished in Japan once FFXIII launches. If GT 5 launches in 2009 it will outsell the FF bundle period. MW2 is a given.

Don't sweat it buddy, it's just our opinions running wild.

So, S.T.A.G.E., am I gonna win our bet or what???

Nope.

Dude when we made the bet we didn't even know it would be bundled, or that it would come out a week before christmas. Now we know all this, and you still don't think it'll do a million first week? Here's a question: how much do you think it will do?

 

Here's some numbers for reference (all first week from Japan):

FFVII does 2 mill+k

FFVIII does 2.5 mill+

FFIX does 2 mill+

FFX does 1.9 Mill

FFX-2 does 1.5 Mill

FFXII does 1.8 Mill

So yeh every Final Fantasy to hit consoles since anyone's kept track has managed to pull in 1 Mill first week.

funny that STAGE post this...the guy who bet that FF XIII will not sell 1 mill in 1 week in Japan :D

LOL.....it wont.

How much do you expect? (first day, first week, second week, total, ...)

Lower installed base this gen....remember.

First day: 400,000k copies

First Week: 800,000k copies

First Month: 2.3 M copies

 

WW:  6-8 M copies WW



Need...more...sig...space...



@STAGE

1. First day & Week too low

2. first month TOO HIGH

this is the weirdest prediction I've seen!



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

So If I win I get to control your sig, avatar and you also make a thread right???

Also, since we know when FFXIII is hitting stores now, I think we should set out details for part 2 of the bet.



There's no way the game will sell 2.3 mil in one month unless it sells like 1.5 mil+ or something first week. Doubtful.

Anyway, expected, but nice.
