Actually, that was my bad. The PS2 remake sold 1.65 million. The SNES version sold 2.79 million. If you total them all up (plus the DS version) its over 6 million. :)
Thank goodness. For a second there I thought that the Japanese actually favored Dragon Quest VI (worst $40 I've ever spent) or something.
