A Closer Look At Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster’s Sales


Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster was released in Japan on December 26th, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in Japan. As previously reported, the PS3 version sold 185,918 copies while the Vita Twin Pack version sold another 149,132 copies.


Sales tracker Media Create have shared with Siliconera that, in its first week, the PS3 version of the Remaster sold through 80.93% of its shipment. Meanwhile, the Vita version sold through 87.24% of its shipment.


By the second week, the PS3 version had sold through 89.76% of its shipment, with total sales at 225,448. Meanwhile, the the Vita version had sold through through 95.52% of its shipment, with total sales at 182,170 copies. That is to say, by week 2, both versions of the Remaster were effectively sold out, and Square Enix have, no doubt, shipped a few more copies since, to keep up with demand.


Not everyone bought Final Fantasy X and X-2 together, though. 25,443 people bought Final Fantasy X HD as a standalone game on the Vita upon release. This amounted to a 90.57% sell-through. By week 2, the game had sold 31,775 copies in total, selling through 97.26% of all copies; meaning, once again, that the game was sold out by its second week.


Meanwhile, Final Fantasy X-2 HD was understandably a little less popular, being a sequel. Only 5,357 people bought that game in its week of release,and that amounted to a mere 46.64% sell-through of all copies shipped. By week 2, total sales of Final Fantasy X-2 had reached 16,355, selling through 84.12% of its shipment.


Not too shabby a performance at all on all fronts, but it should be interesting to see how the games sell in their third week on store shelves, given the large drop-off in week 2. That information will be available this Wednesday as per usual.
