Dissidia Set To Oust Crisis Core's Impressive Sales

Written by Darryl — 11 Jan 2009

Much has been made of Dissidia: Final Fantasy. It was in theory every Final Fantasy fan's dream, and it has the potential to even bring in players who might normally be put off by the RPG nature of the series. Given this, it's hardly surprising that Dissidia beat Crisis Core's first week sales figures.

However, not only did it do that, but it's also continued to sell well since its release on the 14th of December. After just 3 weeks, it has already managed to sell 750,000 units, and it looks more than likely to overtake Crisis Core's lifetime Japanese sales of 790,000 next week; just a month after it was released.

It wouldn't be too much to suggest that Dissidia could well break the 1,000,000 units sold in Japan, and with the prospect of North America looming in Q2/Q3 of 2009 and Europe also on the cards at some point, Dissidia's sales could put it close to rivalling Monster Hunter Freedom 2nd G, on a worldwide scale.
