Final Fantasy XIII's First-Day Sales Numbers Are In

Final Fantasy XIII was released in Japan yesterday. A day later, Square Enix have released figures revealing how many copies of the game were sold during its first 24 hours on the shelf.

And that number has "exceeded one million". Which, well, makes it sound like they sold between 1 and 1.1 million. The news was disclosed in a statement released by Square Enix today, which also states that copies of the game sold bundled with a PS3 - as part of the "Lightning Edition" - were not included in that figure. If you account for those, the figure would be slightly higher.


Square Enix said yesterday that two million copies of the game had been shipped to retailers. Now, there's no way Sony sold one million Lightning Editions, so...anyone hanging on an import copy, don't sweat it, doesn't sound like the game's completely sold out.
