The PS3 edition of loli pirate RPG Tales of Vesperia has sold the most units of any Tales game ever on its opening day, selling more than twice as many copies as the popular Xbox beta version, with an estimated total of 147,000.
The previous Tales games have generally done well, but never as well as this, especially considering the title was already released once.
The opening day sales of previous titles:
Tales of Innocence (DS – 76,000)
Tales of Symphonia (Wii – 120,000)
Tales of Vesperia β (Xbox 360 – 71,000)
Tales of Hearts (DS – 121,000)
Radiant Mythology 2 (PSP – 135,000)
Tales of VS (PSP – 89,000)
Tales of Vesperia (PS3 – 147,000)
The beta version has sold just shy of 200,000 units to date (in Japan), so it seems possible “Perfect ToV” may be able to double even that, which could make an impressive total of 600,000 when added to the not unimpressive Xbox figures…
