Nope, base on Dengeki and Media Create report, FFXV(including digital) only sold ~ 60% shipment

Just so you know, that does not include digital lol 

I think that those 60% can't include digital because digital shipments are unlimited.

They don't because no one offically tracks digital. The only find of digital they could track is dlc vouchers that are sold in stores. Other than that we can only go off how much the game has been rated on the PSN but since not everyone rates games they buy off the PSN even that is not accurate. I did a count up of the USA, EU, JP and China FF pre orders a week before launch and it was rated 23 thousand times all up. Once a game launches the ratings go back to 0 though and start again.

Oh dang! 

If Nintendo did that with their games, I would most certainly wait a couple weeks. 

Lol, such reaction because of a 20% discount ? Isn't that only 10US$ or so ?

I would love that discount here in Australia. Like I said Nintendo games takes aaaages to reduce their price. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

Yeah i wonder how this will reflect sales in the coming years...

maybe square knows these digital sales numbers ....maybe thats why they are celebrating.



Well, home consoles are not what they used to be in Japan, so that was to be expected. They are pretty good numbers anyway.

numbers are lower... that's all I guess no?



Switch!!!

The game is severely underperforming by main entry standards. Still selling a lot of course but far below the franchise standards and no the PS4's install base is not to blame for the 50% drop.

FXIII series damaging the brand and XV being an action RPG, probably are.

I agree that FFxIII is damaged the brand...

But...I dont think anyone in the gaming industry especially square-enix sees this japanese release as an underperformance. They seem to want to invest more in this game designed and im guessing their next 2 or 3 releases will be very similiar to FFXV.

This is the same company that said Tomb Raider at 3.4 million, Hitman: Absolution at 3.6 million, and Sleeping Dogs at 1.75 million were all underperforming. Tomb Raider was expected to hit 6 million during the first month (these are WW figures).

Unless they've learned to massively temper their expectations, this too is underperforming.
