Numbers from Chart Track have shown that Final Fantasy IV DS failed to chart on the week of it's release. Square-Enix is now hoping it's third new release in two weeks, Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen can perform better than FF4 DS did...
I knew this would flop You shouldnt sell out or lie to your fanbase !
I bought it and should get it in the next day or two.
Which fanbase? Square Enix or Sony... because you sound like the later
For once I agree with you! Square enix should not have sold out. They should have left the Final Fantasy games on a "NINTENDO" system! Oh, you did know that they started on nintendo right? BTW... most people still have the GBA version which sold well! "HATER!"
When will SE learn we don't care about ports/remakes on portables. If they don't want them to flop, then do it on current gen systems.
But all I really want them to do is release FFX on 360! All the others as well as FFX can go to Ps3. It should increase sales for the consoles especially if they update the graphics!
Well least SE is very happy with FFIV sales for both US and Japan. To bad EU doesn't like an awesome RPG
Europeans are smart; you can have FFIV for free on an emulator.
Yeah the old SNES version but honestly this remake was pimped out to make that one not even comparable. It really is a big and nice upgrade.
@fox, you love games and also like to destroy that world. Amazing. I'm from europe and i got it for my DS and I LOVED IT.
i think where square enix failed in both ff3 and ff4 was the fact that they made the games 3d to appeal to a new audience but they didn't change the core gameplay (lots and lots of random encounters) in an effort to really change the game. while the graphics may interest new gamers that do not know final fantasy, once they start playing it, many are put off by so many battles while roaming outside of the villages or in dungeons. while i didn't find anything wrong with that, i've been gaming for a long time. some of my friends which are casual gamers with access to a ds are not even interested in ff3/4 because of this. they should have had 2 options to start the game, new game and new game 2007/2008 or something like that, where they should have tweaked the rate of those random encounters.
Granted i like Square Enix I've always loved their games but as far as all of these ports and remakes they are making i don't think anyone really needs them and besides have they ever considered that mostly everyone that owns a computer these days and grew up or heard of these rpg's have either emulated them or own older copies of them on their original systems plus i don't really care for them being redone in 3-D i think it takes a lot of the flair out of them.they need to concentrate on their future games and stop making all of these remakes and at least leave the glitches in them like in FF3 the river LVL up trick that p-me-oed when they fixed that and especially the vanish doom trick i wonder what they screwed out of this one.
Maybe Europeans arent gonna pay the inflated price + the square enix tax for a old, old game. In australia for example with the square enix tax FF4 is actually more expensive than some new release console and pc games. Why square thinks they can get away charging more than everyone else for games is beyond me. i hope the sales flop.
Honestly, FF4 DS is more than a remake and well worth the price of admission. This is no simple port - indeed, it may as well be a whole new game.
Well I'm not a businessman or a Square Enix stockholder so this kind of stuff does not really matter to me.I just want to buy FF4 soon so I can play it since I missed out on many of the old classics
No wonder, haven't seen a single ad for this game.
They might understand that more folks want to see a FFVII Remake. On the PS3 or both the PS3 and Xbox 360, I care not. I just want to see one. After that, do a FFX remake. Come on SE, get back to making good RPG's.
