Everyone Bought Final Fantasy XIII

It comes as little surprise that, in one day, Final Fantasy XIII sold just over one million copies. And in the three days that followed, it quickly became the new king of the PS3.

Going over the numbers a little closer, in four days, FFXIII has sold 1.5+ million units of it's initial 1.8 million shipment, making it Japan's top selling PS3 title of all time.

That's more than double the previous best-seller, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

On the hardware side, Sony's PlayStation 3 saw it's best week ever in Japan, selling 245+k units. The previous weekly high was 150k, during the launch of the PS3 Slim.

All in all, almost 2 million sold in less than a week. Look's like Wada's boasts of 6 million worldwide aren't that far off at all~

Not surprising seeing as their marketing campaign for this game was amazing.
