Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Outsells Lightning Returns Life-To-Date Sales In Japan In Just Two Weeks

Earlier, we reported how Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remaster has outsold the debut week sales of Lightning Returns. Now it appears that the game has surpassed the life-to-date sales of Lightning Returns in Japan in just two weeks.

Lightning Returns XIII was the third entry in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, it was released on November 28th, 2013 in Japan. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remaster was released on 26th December, 2013 for both PlayStation 3 and the VITA and it seems like in just two weeks, Lightning Returns has been outsold by Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remaster.

According to latest sales number by Weekly Famitsu in Japan, Final Fantasy X/X-2 sold 50k units on PlayStation 3 and 35k untis on PlayStation VITA in its second week. This brings the combined total sales on both platforms to 402k units. Adding the known sales of the individual releases of Final Fantasy X HD(Not counting X-2) on VITA, which is 22k in its debut week, we can safely assume that Lightning Returns – whose last known sales figure puts it below 400k units – has been outsold by Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remaster.

    Absolutely awesome.. Now just to hope for my dreams of a ps3/4 hd remaster of ffxii… And dare I say it how awesome it would be to do ff7 hd remaster too!!! I also thought it’d be awesome to do Viii and ix too, but certainly xii and vii would be enough to make square enix absolutely massive and deservedly so!!!!

    Ffx is an amazing game any rpg fan should buy now if they don’t have it.

  • Ultra gamer

    Hello I played final fantasy x, xii,and vii and xiii and part x is one of the best rpgs ever.

  • Meh

    Seriously, guys. No reason to hate on a game that you probably haven’t even played. XIII Saga isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Most people only haven’t played it because a /certain/ group of vocal haters spend all their time bitching about it. It’s even funnier when the is A LOT of them haven’t even played it. If you stopped making excuses to hate it, you wouldn’t see it as bad as you do.

    I didn’t like that much FF X as the past FF but I beat it anyways on the PS2, but in comparison of the girly FF new games “lightning returns” ughhh, FF X is MIIIIILES better than the new ones, so this doesn’t surprise me one bit.

    • Meh

      X-2 is far more girly than Lightning Returns….I’m willing to bet you haven’t even played LR. Most people who bitch on here about the XIII series probably haven’t played it either, just a bunch of bandwagon haters.

  • Chuck

    Can’t wait to play it on my vita vita needs more love fix hd on the go!!

    I think fans have been digging more nostalgia lately than ever, and that’s why X/X-2 bested Lightning Returns in the end, as not lotta gamers have great meories with the XIII series. just saying.

    • Bruce Motherwell

      You obviously haven’t played X & X-2 😛 (If the comment above wasn’t obvious enough for me (I did see it :p)) It’s far superior too any rpg released these days, anyone who get’s their hands on these after only playing the FF XIII’s are in for a (nice) shock! Beats em hands down imo. The only other FF that can compare too X & X-2 is XII, VII and IX were amazing as-well saying that..

        you’re right I haven’t played this game and in fact I actually have never played this series in my life so Lightning Returns and X/X-2 HD will be my first ventures into the Final Fantasy series. I hope to get Steam soon so I can download and play FFVII and and FFVIII, even though they don’t support PS3 as an alternate controller layout. I hope FF XV revitalizes the series when it releases.

  • Robert Fabiani

    well ff ever

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I never played it-I look forward to getting this.

    • Austin McDowell

      Well, I have some words to say about the “best” part. But more deserving than the 13 series. Let’s just hope said series actually dies this time.

    • angh

      Not sure if best, but surely is the last good one.
