FINAL FANTASY 7 REMAKE

GRAN TURISMO 7(not sure but the way PS4 is going,it easily could)

METAL GEAR SOLID PHANTOM PAIN(not sure but the way PS4 is going,it easily could)

METAL GEAR SOLID 1 REMAKE(if it happens)

DRAGON QUEST(not sure but the way PS4 is going,it easily could AND if a main series title came then surely)

Metal Gear never sold 1 million in Japan. Not even on PS2. And PS4 is going to sell just more than 1/4 of PS2 lifetime in Japan.

How can Metal Gear PP sell 1 million?

PS4 can easily sell 10 million console so thats half or 1/2 PS2 sales

and METAL GEAR is one of the most legendary and elite franchises and a big japanese franchise also.And most of all today marketing and hype can send a game much much higher than in the past and people just grab consoles for this.

METAL GEAR can easily make past 1 million plus the LIMITED EDITION PS4's will drive even more sales

Well, if you say "easy".....

Currently the only announced game that will do it for sure is FF XV

FF VII Remake has a shot, but I'd say it's not guaranteed. Same for KH3.

If FF XVI comes to PS4 and is a standard JRPG then that should do it as well.

If DQ XI goes to PS4 and is a standard JRPG then that's a guaranteed millionseller.

Resident Evil 7 might do it, don't think GT7 will do it.

What else... GTA 6 is a pretty good candidate as well, if the series growth continues.

Everything else would be out of the leftfield I'd say.

I'll predict a fancy 4-5.
