FF7R finally makes a point...
At this rate, I'm not even sure it can breach the 200 points
Lol, really? It's slow now, but it'll start picking up a lot of points after Christmas.
It's having the exact same sales curve as FF XV, and that one already had over 50% of it's final points 100 days from launch. It never got to a point where it got lots of points apart from when the preorders started.
See here FF XV with 160 points 100 days from the original launch date (it got pushed back by several weeks later on): http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=7957436
50 days from "launch", it had only risen to 208 points: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8022686
It got then pushed back by 2 months, here it is again at 50 days from launch, with 275 points: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8095468
Last day, it finally reached 470 points total: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8171243
So, if you now keep in mind that the "50"days from launch are actually over 100 days from launch yet had about 50% of the final points at that time, it's not hard to see why with just 116 points now 85 days from launch, getting over 200 is starting to get tough and 300 flat out out of range. Especially if you keep in mind that FF VIIR went past 100 points in late October already, 129 days before launch. That's just 16 points in 44 days. Granted, it will get more points the closer we get to release, but it should already be accelerating, yet nothing happens.
Edit: Also keep in mind that FF XV launched during the holiday season with it's new release date, which certainly helped it's preorders, too. But no chance for this for FF VIIR
