Final Fantasy XIII-2 Sells 500,000 Units First Week

Xbox 360 version fails to place in top 20. 3DS tops Vita in hardware sales.

 

Final Fantasy XIII-2 made its expected debut at the top of Media Create's weekly software chart, its PlayStation 3 version selling above 500,000 units. The Xbox 360 version, released simultaneously this time, did not make it into the top 20.

PlayStation Vita was the big new debut for the week, but it did not cause much impact on the software chart. Hot Shots Golf 6 and Uncharted made it into the top 10. Dynasty Warriors Next and Lord of Apocalypse made it into the top 20. BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend and Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru also made it into the top 20, but just through their PS3 versions.
