Square Enix sent out a press release last night that announced that Final Fantasy XIII has shipped 5 million units worldwide. Three million units were shipped in North America and Europe, with closer to 2 million copies in Japan. Overall, the Final Fantasy series has shipped over 96 million units. Bear in mind, it doesn’t mean that 5 million copies has sold, just that they have shipped to stores. I also remember reading somewhere earlier in the week that the copies sold in Japan have put the game in the top 5 of best selling games in Japan for all time. There has also been no mention of PS3 vs XBOX 360 copies, but, due to the limitations on the XBOX 360 the PS3 will most likely be way ahead in sales.
