Square Enix Targeting To Sell Six Million Copies of FF XIII

Having sold nearly four million copies just in Japan of Dragon Quest IX, they are setting their sights even higher for the next mainline entry in their other wildly popular series.

Square Enix announced today that they are hoping to sell over six million copies worldwide of Final Fantasy XIII.

With Final Fantasy XII selling through six million copies worldwide, Square Enix predicts that XIII can easily be as successful.

The company has already shipped four million copies of Dragon Quest IX, and has sold through nearly every copy. Yoichi Wada, President of Square Enix is predicting that they will reach five million in sales by year end in Japan.

Good luck with that. FF XIII is PS3 exclusive in Japan, all 360 RPGs flopped practically worldwide. I suspect that a bulk of the FF:XIII sales will be on PS3 worldwide.

Super Hang-On Review Rewind

When I was a wee lad in the arcades, motorcycle racers were not often a priority for me to spend my quarters. I was too busy playing After Burner, Galaga, or Ms. Pac-Man. But one day, I saw something that stood out from the usual bunch- Sega’s Super Hang-On, initially released in 1987. As I hopped on the mechanical bike and blasted around that first corner, I knew it was worth every quarter spent. I was one with the road- until I crashed seconds later. While I never won the race or played it in the arcade again, I always remembered how much fun it was. Thankfully, most of the traits that made the coin-op version fun translated well on the Sega Genesis.
