Square Enix has just released their highly anticipated Final Fantasy XIII in Japan and it has sold a little over 1.5 million. 1.1 million of those copies were first day sales.
The game, which comes to the United States in March, is a PS3 exclusive title in Japan but when it’s released outside of Japan it will also be available for the Xbox 360.
Being a PS3 exclusive for Japan the game was also able help sell PS3 consoles. PS3 sold 240,000 consoles over the week, including “Lightning” edition PlayStation 3 bundles. Many believe a lot of PS3 sales were because of the games release, because a week before that Sony was only able to sell 74,000 consoles.
