japanese FF XIII facts

52 replies 148 views Edited Feb 20, 2010
I have seen numerous people state here on the forums that the japanese version failed and flopped here is some facts. over 50% of the ps3 userbase purchased the game.FFXIII is the best selling game ever for the PS3 in Japan. It's also Japan's first PS3 game to sell a million .Famitsu readers consider FFXIII the best game of all time. sounds like it did great to me so dont buy into the trolls who constantly bash the game with misinformation and partial truths. buy the game and judge for youre self or rent if youre unsure.No game is perfect but FF XIII is far from the pile of manure some on these forums try to claim. Hope you all enjoy the game for what it is not for what it is not.

Average Rakuten score from users who HAVE played the game: 4.5/5. Famitsu score: 39/40. Dengeki score: 100/100 not looking bad for a game that supposedly the japanese hate. but of course a troll will follow and call all these scores bias for some reason.

Final Fantasy is mostly being review by men.  But it is more popular with girls.  Casual games and RPGs are games that girls play.  I myself am a guy, I like Final Fantasy XIII for the sci-fi and story and have already pre-ordered it along with the strategy guide.

Before I say anything, I want everyone to know, I could be WAY off on this one...
 Keep in mind, Famitsu does a 4-reviewer thing, where each gives a score out of 10. IIRC, there are 2 'hardcore' and 2 'casual' reviewers, which is why Demon's Souls got like a 33/40 or something. One reviewer thinks something different because the formula's changed from what they preferred in FFXII.

GameInformer gave it a 9.25.  They rarely miss.  It will be worth it for the hi def visuals alone.
