Resident Evil 5 has outsold resident Evil 4 LTD within a few weeks. Yakuza 3 has seen a huge jump from Yakuza 1 when its comes to first week sales. Like 170K more. MGS2 sold to 13.9% of the install base first week. Whilst MGS4 sold to 22.55% of the install base. This goes to show that games can stil sell just as well as the ps2 version if not better at a faster rate and grab a higher % of the install base.
As you can see these old franchises are more front loaded on the PS3 outdoing the PS2 versions first week and thats with a smaller install base. So a higher % of the install base are buying the games first week.
If lets say the ps3 is at 3,900,000 in Japan by FF 13 release. And it sells the same % of the install base on the first week as previous games in the series. Then this game will do 1.50M first week.
But being as the PS3 is sells games at a faster rate for the first week then the PS2 did then that number could be even higher. Say around 2mil high. Which will be around 51% Of the user base.assuming the ps3 is at 1.90M
These figures i have stated are not includng the hardware bump the PS3 will get on the release date so keep that into account. I also think the PS3 will be above 3,900,000 by the time FF13 releases but thats for another thread ;)
Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!
