Dissidia: Final Fantasy on top of the food chain in Japan for December

Quoted from QJ.net

Typical of a major Final Fantasy release, Dissidia is sitting pretty on top of the Japan software charts in its first month of release. The game sold 660,000 copies by the end of December, far outstripping even Nintendo's Animal Crossing: City Folk.

It's not often a PSP game plops on top of the charts (or anything not Nintendo-related, really) in Japan. Notable exceptions are Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, and of course, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7. Dissidia was a shoe-in. But of course, it's Square Enix.

Here are the rest of the top ten games in Japan for the month of December (the second set of numbers are lifetime sales).

1. Final Fantasy Dissidia (Square Enix, PSP, 660,262)
2. Animal Crossing City Folk (Nintendo, Wii, 481,695, 895,302)
3. Kirby Super Star Ultra (Nintendo, DS, 403,279, 855,427)
4. Girls Mode (Nintendo, DS, 299,170, 549,348)
5. Professor Layton and the Final Time Journey (Level-5, DS, 267,365, 628,143)
6. Pokemon Platinum (Pokemon, DS, 258,843, 2,187,337)
7. Taiko no Tatsujin Wii (Bandai Namco, Wii, 251,183
8. Rhythm Heaven (Nintendo, DS, 221,971)
9. Wii Fit (Nintendo, Wii, 211,651)
10. Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 (Koei, PS3, 206,438)

Dissidia Dominates for the 3rd Week Running

Quoted from QJ.net:

Lucky for Square Enix, there's nothing like starting the year with a big bang in sales. The figures for Japanese game sales for January 5 to 11 have been published by Media Create. Surprise, suprise, Dissidia: FInal Fantasy is still on top!

Square Enix's latest title on the PSP has retained its championship belt for the third week running, ever since it debuted on first place upon launch week. Lots of other Sony titles are also on the top ten (nice to see White Knight Chronicles still holding its place there), with a healthy dose of Ninty games too.

1. Dissidia Final Fantasy - PSP - Square Enix
2. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G (PSP The Best) - PSP - Capcom
3. Rhythm Tengoku Gold - DS - Nintendo
4. Wii Fit - Wii - Nintendo
5. Wagamama Fashion Girls Mode - DS - Nintendo
6. White Knight Chronicles - PS3 - SCEJ
7. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Spec III - PS3 - SCEJ
8. Gundam Musou 2 - PS2 - Bandai
9. Hoshi no Kirby: Ultra Super Deluxe - DS - Nintendo
10. Mario Kart Wii - Wii - Nintendo

North American Final Fantasy XIII Release Delayed (Yay! For me anyway)

Quoted from Gamespot:

Unfortunately, that promise of a 2009 release apparently applies only to Japan, given that the game isn't going to make it to the US or Europe until the second quarter of 2010 at the very earliest. The news emerged as Square Enix, the game's developer, delivered projections for the remainder of its current fiscal year, which ends March 31.

Square Enix president Yoichi Wada told Reuters that the game was on track for a 2009 PS3-exclusive launch in Japan, with international launches for the Xbox 360 and PS3 coming "in the business year from April 2010 or later."
