Around the Network

FFXV was the previous fastest selling FF game. It did:

5 million launch shipment
6 million shipped and sold after 1.5 months (holiday season)
7 million shipped and sold after 1 year

FF7R on one platform will outsell it. It also has already broken digital records for SE: 2 million digital on PSN alone.
I expect FF16 and FF7R2 to be timed exclusive to PS5 considering SE can break records with the Playstation userbase by itself.



Haha I just came here to say those numbers seem a little low to me. Considering amount of hype around the release, and the fact that the current PS4 userbase is about the same now as the Xbox One + PS4 combined back in 2017, I expected FFVII:R to vastly outperform FFXV. I mean, it's FFVII!

Also -- I know this is OT, but it's kind of BS that this game is exclusive at all tbh.



Amazing numbers, GOTY by far.

This is the crazy part.
5-6 months to do 5m+ as a exclusive is pretty decent for FF7R.

Good numbers.
LoD Remake would have sold 5B by now, tho.

Which year?

Great sales but foolish to think it being exclusive hasnt resulted in overall lower sales.
Probably would have sold 1m+ on PC and XBOX ONE each



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

I would've expect more

Low sales for a game released close to next gen systems, timed exclusive and “episodic”.

LOL!!
