How Much Did Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 Sell On The Xbox 360?



Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 released simultaneously for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan the week before last. While the game moved 63,675 units on the PS3 in its first week, Media-Create also provided numbers for the Xbox 360 version.


In Japan, it isn’t uncommon to see Xbox 360 game sales be lower than their PS3 counterparts, but those of Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 were pretty low — the 360 build moved just 3,000 units. One could attribute this to the fact that the original Ultimate Ninja Storm didn’t have an Xbox 360 version at all.


Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 debuted higher than its predecessor overall, though, which opened at 44,000 units on the PlayStation 3 back in 2008.
