Final Fantasy XIII reaches 5.55 million in sales
Arkham Asylum's Japanese sales don't surprise me in the slightest. Forget the inevitable "xenophobia" response, Japan has never
liked Batman. Batman films, shows, and comics do not sell there. So Batman games not selling is not shocking to me. What is shocking is that someone still thought that was a title worth localizing in Japan.
Dissidia's sales sound, to me, like a sign that the PSP is really flagging outside Japan. One must also wonder how much more piracy there is over here. But I really blame the platform - despite being a weaker game, Kingdom Hearts clobbered it on the DS. And the DS is also a pretty piracy prone platform.
So. FFXIII sales. Comparing it to the sales of recent WRPGs, I suddenly understand why BioWare was so keen to start whining about it.
