 So evan the two lowest selling FFs out sale the highest selling DQ.

 So as far as sales two FF games > one DQ.


Heh, clever.

Anyway, most people just spout that DQ is so much more popular than FF in Japan because DQ doesn't sell as well anywhere else as it does in Japan.  In reality, there is not much difference between FF and DQ in Japan.

Only a few hundred thousand difference on each one, except the third, which has a .6 million difference.

I'm curious how being on a handheld will make a difference.
