Forums - Sales Discussion - Final Fantasy 15 PS4 sales stomp all over the Xbox One version

Lol, so much salt. With digital sales it over 1 million worldwide for Xbox one. That is more than justifiable for the Xbox one version. If we are thinking lifetime sales it will hit 2-3 million on Xbox one easily.

To be expected and I actually kind of expected worse.

Although SE should probably stop releasing so many FF games as Playstation exclusive if they really want to expand the franchise on the Xbox Platform. If not I kinda want to them to go playstation exclusive (maybe timed) and make the absolute most of the playstation hardware.

Nice use of sarcasm.

To the OP: Only the delusional and ignorant didn't see that coming.

Salt from who?

Yep, 1M digital sales for X1 in UK, it actually outsold PS4 version 9:1 when digital is accounted for.

A lot of users are upset because all the main featured ff games will be on Xbox pretty much. Just like when they were upset with msg being on Xbox. Selling around 1 million/ over a million FW is a huge deal for square.

20% is still a pretty fat chunk of sales. No company would want to just lose 20% of their sales.

I do think it'll be re-release on Scorpio along with PC. Possibly Switch even as well. SE will milk the hell outta it because the development cost was likely sky high.

That percentage applies to the UK only and the split is going in line with Type-0's ratios, though this time Microsoft marketed FFXV when it didn't for Type-0. I believe Type-0's worldwide ratio was 90% PS4/10% XBO.

Opportunity costs will also go into play. Would Square want to put in manpower, money, and time on porting to a console whose JRPG fanbase is tiny or allocate those things towards their future big titles for platforms that have much larger JRPG fanbases (e.g. PS4, PC)?

No one brought salt into this except you.  Maybe you're the one salty because high sales of FF on the PlayStation only propels the PlayStation as a more viable gaming platform than the Xbox.

Porting is very easy now days because Xbox one and PS4 have same architecture and hardly cost any money to do so. The ff engine does all the leg work so to speak. People are acting like they have to redo the graphics/sounds/code.



Who cares? Game looks terrible anyway.

Maybe you have not seen the 2008 e3 when ff13 was announce for 360.
