It isn’t shocking that Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers failed to make the NPD top 20 list for December video game sales. Unfortunately though, both titles have sold under 50,000 copies thus far.
Shattered Memories had almost a full month of sales, but The Crystal Bearers’ situation is a bit more complicated. Although the game was officially released on December 26 in North America, GameStop started selling it about a week early.
While there’s a glimmer of hope that FFCC: The Crystal Bearers will sell a bit better next month due to Square Enix’s commercials and other advertising for the title, the same cannot be said about Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Shattered Memories has received critical acclaim and comes from an established franchise, yet it sold even worse than The Crystal Bearers in the month of December. Sales aren’t looking too great for both games right now. But hopefully there will be better news to report next month.
