Square Enix stated in their FY2010 Q1 report briefing that more than 2 million copies of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII were shipped worldwide so far.
That's nice. Crisis Core kicked ass and is an amazing game. Dunno where all that "Square Enix sux" crap is coming from. They still got it. However, the TRI-ACE games that Square PUBLISHED sucked ass, yes.
Its pretty much anything outside of the final fantasy universe that Squeenix cant seem to get their heads on strait to make a great overall quality game. Final fantasie's are a walk in the park for them since they have ben in that universe since like over 15 years or so,no? However,if they should relize anything,it should be the Final fantasy 7 fan base... they (including me) are some dedicated fans and demand nothing but perfection.... and Squeidos knows not to fvck up with the FF7 story.
Don't even get me started on how bad the Full Metal Alchemist games were. I shudder to think that I purchased one. I keep it as a reminder that no video game company is fool proof. However, Crisis Core is easily my favorite game for the PSP. 2 million is quite an achievement, especially for a portable.
"Dunno where all that "Square Enix sux" crap is coming from." Well yeah Crisis Core was a pretty good game, but I'm not surprised the best FF7 spinoff made has sold this much...FF7 is pretty much the most popular FF in the series. Square Enix still sucks though...one of us from N4G could make an FF7 game to sell 2 million...it's freakin FF7. The really impressive thing is a PSP game period has sold over 2 million, that just shows how big FF7 really is. I wanted this game so much that I imported it.
its not about the "sales". There have been other FF7 spin offs that sold badly for Square. The point is the game was GOOD and not becuase it was FF7, it was Square doing what they do best; final fantasy games. This is one of, if not THE best titles on the PSP to date and Crisis Core is truly an amazing game. Bu bu but SquareEnix sucks and lost their talent right? I just think that's a pretty harsh thing to say to a company who has been pumping good games (in house developed games) out for a long time then all a sudden their names are tarnished becuase some upset fanboys haven't seen a Square title touch the PS3 yet, for some games Square didnt even develop themselves. FF13 looks sick to me and downgraded graphics or not, I'm still buying that game day 1 (on the ps3 of course) and will love every minute of it. But for some reason that game is getting alot of downplay lately. Ironically though FF13vs, a ps3 exclusive, is "the shiznet" and everyone can't wait for that title to come out from "sucky SquareEnix". Am I wrong?
Crisis Core = my favorite PSP game. The World Ends With You = my favorite DS game. Clearly SE hasn't lost it, but is having a hard time getting that same level of quality on HD consoles.
a good game....i think the story was great, the gameplay ok.....but i hated that we couldnt skip the cutsenes!!
playing an RPG and u dont like cutscenes? fail-
The name helped a lot... because the game itself is boring... like any last squareenix game in fact... Download FF7 on the store, it's truly a better choice.
the game is not boring.its fun and holds you till the end!!!lol.this game is kickass!!! nuff said!
cool soundtrack, really good combat system, impressive cutscenes, and finally good story. so, what is the bad thing?
no freedom of choices. you got a straight linear story that you can not change, where you cant do any choices, you just have to follow the hero and the story... absolutely no choice... thats all i remember about this game... i used to love this game when i was 10 because i didn't want more, that was enough, but know, when you see all the goods rpgs, you think final fantasy (especially this one) has no flavor anymore. I hope things will change with XIII. I really hope so.
@kasasensei You could always just stick to western rpgs then, since you want to make choices. Which is fine since this is all your opinion about the game. I personally prefer a good story over being aloud to change things by making choices, thats why I will stick with jrpgs. Before any one jumps on me about western being open and jrpgs being linear, I'm not saying there all like that but most do follow that format. Also as you can see by these numbers, people still love those flavorless games, which is why I believe square enix will not change the style of there Final fantasy games.
@2.3 Linearity is sometimes the best thing about a game's story. To me, making choices mostly only means that'll I'll play the game a second time; just to see what happens though, not because it's just that great of a game.
Did deserve it, definitely the best psp game to date.
if only they would port it to the ps2 or remake it for the Ps3 which would be amazing but itll never happen just like a FF7 remake
Once I get a PSP Go! this will be the first title that I'll be buying for sure. Amazing graphics for a PSP game.
Crisis Core is in my top 3 of best games ever played
Easily one of the best games available on PSP.
Thats a lot of sales for a handheld there... God of War:Chains of Olympus is also in 1.8 mn. thats pretty good.
i ve been thinking about the final fantasy 7 universe after playing the psone classic of the store and it just hit me the other day. i know this from a business stand point wont make much sense. but regardles it will sell like hot cakes. okay say everyone in squarenix got back together and decided to come forth and finally make a final fantasy 7 remake. now how would i do it if it were to me? well? simply put it this way, i would simply include crisis core in the remake make it all part of the same game, for example when you start of playing the remake, you'll start as zack in crisis core, now once you finish that off, than final fantasy 7 comes in and you'll than continue as cloud. However in this period you'll be asked to save the game or continue without saving all in stunning graphics ofcourse, finally but not lease after you are done beating the remake players would than unlock the final fantasy 7 advant children: complete as a bonus and as part of the overal final fantasy 7 saga. Also the last order film will be included somewhere in the game all in stunning cg ofcourse. And that right there folks is how i would remake final fantasy 7 for the ps3, and ship that bad boy in a 100gb bluray disc just in case,bundle with a limited white final fantasy 7 ps3slim edition. egh but thats just me i guess.
That sounds like a very good wet dream right there
I wish Square would bring a version of the game to the PS2
Great game deserved the sales.
this game is my WANT TO PLAY!!!!!! i still didnt.... i dont have money to spend on psp just for one game :(
it sold like how DS games sell. LMAO!!
Deserves the sales.
WHEN WILL IT RELEASE NEW FINAL FANTASY 7: THE RETURN OF GENESIS?
great game, playing it for the second time now ... to bad anyone who had played final fantasy 7 had a good idea how it would end
The End was full of Awesomeness! :D
