Final Fantasy XIV sells more than half a million

Square Enix's maligned MMO still sold quite well.

Yoichi Wada, the president of Square Enix, confirmed to investors that Final Fantasy XIV has sold more than 600,000 copies worldwide since its October release.

The game proved popular in all three major territories, selling 230,000, 210,000 and 190,000 units in Europe, North America and Japan, respectively.

Square Enix is still actively working on fixing any remaining bugs in the game in preparation for the PlayStation 3 release. "We're quickly working on reforms. We'd like to put our full power into regaining trust," AndriaSang quotes the Wada as saying."If we satisfy our users, they will return. On the other hand, once the users say, 'forget this,' theres no turning back. We can only recover our trust so far."

Many players describe Final Fantasy XIV to be unfinished, with numerous bugs and glitches still intact. As a result, Square Enix gave early adopters a one-month trial extension.
