I think that it sold well enough to make a game on the same engine quickly...which is FAR cheaper I would imagine. Perhaps they fix some of the wrongs with this one? (The battles system was great, weapons...not so much, linearity sucked too) "
It sold over 5 million. That's amazing for an RPG in this day and age.

It's called Revenant Wings and it's actually better than the original game.

The title is correct, but I disagree with your assumption as to its quality.  But then I've never played an RTS game that I could actually enjoy.

I heard it sold almost twice as many as Dragon Age . . . and I'm thoroughly depressed by that.

If Dragon Age is Bioware's best selling game, then I am disappoint. Bioware deserves more sales than that.

@knightlyknave: wasn't quite twice as many, FFXIII sold a couple million more copies.  Though their overall reviews were pretty similar (the PC version of DA reviewed slightly better, but the console versions were about on par with FFXIII).  XIII actually was quite a critical and commercial success, just not to the extent that some past FF games have been.   FFXIII was actually the fastest selling Final Fantasy game, though not the highest-selling, so expecting a sequel is not surprising at all.  Heck, even FFX-2 outsold DA, so it's quite commercially viable for Square to do this.
 
I actually find it quite encouraging.

I'd guess it's probably ME, but I don't have the numbers in front of me.

@Addfwyn: I actually think it's DA. I remember reading about how it was the best sellling. Here, it's not the same article but it'll do. I believe Mass Effect 1 and 2 sales are both in the same range as each other which is good.

#214 Posted by Addfwyn (1922 posts) -
@Arkasai: still is, a big trailer was just released for it as well.

Its amazing how many idiots are dissing this game because they didin't like the first. Do you not realise that the sequel will go out to improve the game and make it better? Jesus chirst.

*facepalm*

Meanwhile, Parasite Eve and Kingdom Hearts remain forgotten for the 360/PS3.

So? KH is being milked like fuck on the handhelds....a console version would be overload. I think it's only right after KH3ds that there isn't a KH game for a while.

Not sure how I feel about this.

Wonder if there is gonna be a reward for people who completed XIII

Lotta hate for FFXIII, but its still one of the only JRPGs I actually finished this gen. Actually I think the only other one was Eternal Sonata, and that was pretty short.

I hope they learn from their mistakes and keep the good things from the first game, the little parts there are.

I've lost faith in Final Fantasy :( So I appreciate the pretty trailer, but my interest in the game is as threadbare as Lightning's bikini armor (although.... schhaaWING!).

So stoked. FFXIII was my favorite FF ever.

I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and maybe...MAYBE they'll actually make this the type of game that 13 should have been.
