It looks like the PlayStation portable still has some life left in it yet. On its first day at retail in Japan yesterday, Square Enix’s Dissidia: Final Fantasy sold a whopping 350,000 copies!
40,000 of theses sales were of the 20th Anniversary Limited Pack, which came with a limited edition PSP-3000 system. This makes Dissidia’s launch equal to the success of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII — mind you, it doesn’t even come to the first day sales of Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G; an insane 670,000 units.
As you already know a US release date has already been confirmed for mid-2009. Here’s hoping it repeats the same success over here.
