that is highly dependant on quality. if square screws up with FF 15, KH3 should easily outsell it.


FF 13 begs to differ.


There is a thing that happens with FF, wich is the qualitty of the previous entry greatly influences the sales of the next one. The brunt of the ff13 quality was felt by the sequals and will be felt by ffxv.

If that were true, wouldn't FF 13 itself have sold poorly? 12 wasn't exactly the most liked Final Fantasy, to this day I still hear some Final Fantasy fans say that it's worse than 13.

Im pretty sure its nowhere near as bad as 13. It reviewed well.

XIII is a bit special as it was the first to expand to more than one system. It definitly tried to escape the rule.



FFXV by far



If Final Fantasy XV goes back to the quality of the older titles then I could easily see it selling around 10m. Kingdom Hearts will probably only do around 5-6m. Square has done a really poor job handling that franchise by releasing exclusive games on so many different consoles. The KH fanbase is fragmented and all over the place. At least with Final Fantasy the core games have always stayed on consoles, and last gen it became multi platform.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Surprised that so many are confidently saying FFXV. Kingdom Hearts has a huge fanbase, far more than the fanbase for any individual Final Fantasy game.

The games have also all performed well while Final Fantasy games vary greatly in sales.

Not to mention that more and more people are going off Final Fantasy all the time.

Also the 2 trailers can out the same time but KH3 got far more views.

It's also got vastly more google interest.

I don't think that KH has a bigger fanbase than any individual Final Fantasy game. FF7 for instance has a huge fanbase, it sold almost twice the copies of KH1, which is the best selling Kingdom Hearts game.

Final Fantasy sales do vary, but so far most of them have outsold KH1. Even 13, which many consider to be the worst Final Fantasy, outsold KH1. 

Final Fantasy has lost fans in recent years, but that's due to diminishing quality over the course of the last few games. If anybody can make a quality Final Fantasy release again, it's Tetsuya Nomura, if it gets good reviews most of those lost fans will come back.

Not really a fair comparison, KH 3 was a new announcement, whereas XV was announced back in 2006 as Versus 13, many people skipped watching XV's trailer simply because they assumed it was more of the same footage they'd already seen in previous Versus 13 trailers.

that was the first major screw up for the franchise, wich is much more damaged now and the fanbase will be cautious with 15.

Don't know what happened withn my other post but it didn't work for some reason.

As popular as the FFVII series I doubt it's bigger than the entire Kingdom Hearts fanbase.

A huge chunk of Final Fantasy's sales back on PS1-PS2 were from Japan were games would sell 2-3 million copies back then. If the PS4 doesn't take off in Japan like the PS3 didn't then FF15 may not even sell 2 million copies there. Meanwhile America's game sales ares still strong and there Kingdom Hearts is the more popular series now it seems.

And it's not just FF13's fault for what's happened to the franchise. FF11 was an online game, people didn't care for it, FF12 was a huge step backwards from FF10, FF14 is another online game. There hasn't been a game people have really liked since 2001.

And KH3 got more google interest than Final Fantasy Vs XIII too.



ff15 on xbone will outsell all kingdom hearths versions, the only answer is ff15
