Tales of Xillia Sold More Than Half a Million Copies in a Week. Sold. Not Just Shipped

According to this week’s utterly PS3-dominated Media Create Software charts, Namco Bandai hit the jackpot with Tales of Xillia.

525,605 copies of the game found their way to a Japanese home. Let me be specific here, for the ones that love the argument between “shipped” and “sold” copies. It’s sold, to customers. Sell-through figures.

This means that considering the current Japanese population of 127,960,000, one Japanese every 243 went to a store and purchased Tales of Xillia before the end of last week.

So, what about that western release, Namco Bandai? And yes, if you’re wondering, I’m going to ask this in every Tales of Xillia-related post I write. Repetita iuvant.
