It's all thanks to Jessie.

Even Corona shipment issues can't hold her back.

That girl is way to thirsty

Amazing sales thus far in only 3 days, even considering physical copies having shortages. This one is going to have some great legs too, especially with a lot of folks staying inside. I wonder if the next part will also be a timed PS exclusive for PS5?



@aikohualda

Well as you probably already know, this current game is only the first part of the original game in which this is a REMAKE of. 

If I remember correctly, SE were saying it's likely going to be released into 3 parts being as its so big, especailly now they're doing it on current gen consoles.

Therefore we're basically paying 3 times for a what is basically a single game overall. However this doen't Concern me because I think this first part was brilliant and well worth the money, they've done a really good job with it. We got a much better look at life in Midgar and got to see much bigger parts of characters like Jessie, Biggs and Wedge, who were brilliant.

Add me if you want but let me know youre from this website

Do people still talking about" this is only a one part"? Lads, FF7R is over TWICE as long as WHOLE OG ff7.
So, why u are not upset about lets say Tlou getting part2? Technically this is the same situation.
OP- best selling ps4 console/timed exclusive, cloud and c.o beaten even Spiderman. The game is nowhere to be found physically. Great job!

maybe i will get it on ps5 :P i am pretty sure they will release it as definitive edition with everything in one game... how many hours did you put in the first part?

That's great to hear. I'm still gonna hold off for a few months before I get the game, but it's nice to see it doing well already.



Great score
It isn't lucky to be released during lockdown, the physical is lesser than usually

The PS4 sales may would be higher without lockdown too

Well, for one thing it's definitely not twice as long as the whole OG final fantasy 7.  I'm about done at just under 40 hours, having completed all the sidequests.  I'm not sure how long FF7 took me, but I'm positive it wasn't 20 hours.  

But more importantly, because it's one part.  The product is called "Final Fantasy 7 Remake".  You can't argue that a remake of Midgar is a remake of Final Fantasy 7.  If it's not a part, then you're saying this product is itself a remake of Final Fantasy 7.  And it's obviously not. 

It's also part only part of a narrative arc.  A game like Resident Evil 4 was a part of a bigger story, but it was still a complete narrative, with a conflict presented, a clear antagonist, rising action, a climax, and a resolution.  In this game, not so much.

I actually like the game a lot, but it is what it is, and what it is is one part.

Because it is. They are making and releasing 2 more parts of this FF7 Re-whatever this is. Just because they extended this part with filler, doesn't mean the next 2 parts aren't being made with loads of filler too.

The real test will be how well part 2 sells compared to this part. FF13 was a game with 2 sequels (no matter how people claim it was 3 parts) and the second sold less than half of the first, the 3rd game even less. 



Hmm, pie.

SE never confirmed 3 parts of this game at all. In fact they specifically said they don't know how many parts as of yet.
