    Square Enix wants to know why you bought Final Fantasy XIII on PS3 or Xbox 360


    Written by Alexis M. (Rivithed) Friday, 16 April 2010
    Square Enix is currently conducting a brief Final Fantasy XIII survey on its Square Enix Members website. According to NPD Group's March 2010 sales numbers, Final Fantasy XIII sold almost double on the PlayStation 3 (828.2k units) versus the Xbox 360 (493.9K units). There was considerable more promotion on the Xbox 360 in North America with the Xbox 360 Final Fantasy XIII bundle, Xbox 360 Final Fantasy XIII Faceplate and Xbox 360 Chocobo Avatar giveaway. But Square Enix wants to know from Final Fantasy XIII players why they chose Final Fantasy XIII on one platform over the other. Here are a couple of the questions and options in the survey on platform choice:
    Why did you select the PS3 version?
    - Prefer PS3's graphics appearance
    - Controller preference
    - PlayStation Trophies
    - PS3 is my console of choice
    - PS3 version had only one disc
    - Other

    Why did you select the Xbox 360 version?
    - Prefer Xbox 360's graphics appearance
    - Controller preference
    - Achievements
    - Xbox 360 is my console of choice
    - Enjoy Xbox’s community when playing games like this
    - Other
    Participate in the survey here. See more details on how to participate here. The survey runs until April 30, 2010, so let Square Enix know why you chose Final Fantasy XIII on one platform over the other, among other things.

    I just think PS3 owners are more likely to be into JRPG's than the more western orientated Xbox owners. Considering all the JRPG's on the PS2, I think a lot of PS3 buyers were hoping for a similar treatment (I know I am), and are that much more keen for a game like FFXIII.

    MMMMmmmm...

    My response to that is as follows:

    Sony Japanese company.
    XBOX american company.
    Perhaps patriotism comes into play or more likely cause of the lack of the FF franchise on the previous XBOX.
    But i think the main problem is that people thought that FF would be a PS3 exclusive and bought the console way before and just decided to stick to it.
    Different consoles have different target markets.
    Sony being the more rounded off one whereas XBOX more action / FPS/ etc

    SO its like
