Final Fantasy XIII sold in April 91,000 units between both platfoms, that's a 93% drop
Poor April results were also due to the lack of long-tail sales for single-player games released the previous month, claims Doug Creutz of Cowan and Company, and it is online and digital strategies that can add shelf life to multiplayer titles as single-player games are traded in quickly after completion.
Yeowch! I knew the game would be extremely front-loaded, especially with the negative word of mouth (yes Darth, it's quite negative relative to expectations), but that figure surprises me greatly.
