Square Enix has shared a new sales update for Final Fantasy XV confirming that the game has now shipped 8.4 million copies worldwide.
How sad, what a turd of a game. Nothing "Final Fantasy" about it.
yea it was pretty awful. Makes me miss ff13 and that was a pretty tame entry for the series.
All three of them? That the two squeals were things, not just attempts to legitimize the first but prototypes for what Square planned to do moving forward from that point, makes 13 as bad as 15. If not worse.
Yeah..FF1 was supposed to be the Final Fantasy. How dare they continue the series and make lots of money and awesome games.
...? I think youre a little too far gone there.
FF1 was a last desperate attempt to make a hit that succeeded by a company, that in light of further successes, lost the sense of desperation that inspired the creativity that made their first original success. Have since focused on their own history, exploit built up fandom, while repeatedly failing to deliver legitimate good games.
Woooow I know this game fails in being complete and fails to deliver what we saw in trailers and what we expect. But the journey is pure FF game as never since FFXII. 4 warriors heading to the rest of the world to ensure the Crystal of the Light is well protected, and trying to bring back the light and peace again. This is apply on FF1, FFVII, FFX, FFXI, FFXIV and FFXV.
Don't bother, the fanbase for this series is stupid as hell. Just you wait, when FF16 gets announced and the first trailer drops, these exact same people will spew utter hate for FF16 and suddenly do a 180 on FF15 saying it's a timeless masterpiece and a true representation of the FF franchise. I've seen this happen many times in the extremely toxic FF community.
I'm one of those people that didn't totally hate Final Fantasy XV. It was really different in terms of gameplay and I'm sure that rubs people the wrong way. I thought the story was weak and the cast was forgettable, but I still had plenty of fun with it. Final Fantasy XIII was painful up until reaching Gran Pulse, at least for me. Then it was great. I see why people are disappointed since it took quite some time to be released, but I still had good times with it. Far from the best, but not unplayable in any sense. I actually enjoyed the hunting side quests and training camp battles.
I'd say FF15 was mediocre trash. 6.5 or 7 at best for me.
Concept wise it was everything the franchise represented it was just poorly implemented. Four heroes of the light attempting to bring peace back to their kingdom. If that isn't Final Fantasy at it's core I don't what is.
I really miss the turn based combat of these games. It had a sense of strategy to it.
Still feel 12 had the best combat.
True. FFXII and X-2 had the best combat in the franchise.
I don't. i want to be in the battle. you can still have strategy when playing an action rpg
I feel it really depends on the game. In many respects you’re just button mashing.
“The updated sales figure for Final Fantasy XV makes it the third best selling game overall just behind Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy X.” Good on them for that
That's good isn't it? How about un-cancelling that DLC then SE?
How about forgetting FF15 and concentrate on FF7 Remake or start work on FF16
I'd be more inclined to agree if they hadn't announced 4 more episodes in the first place, but yeah I do want to know where 16 and the 7 Remake are at.
Why? Square was still losing money
I hope the next FF is a throwback game similar to Dragon Quest 11 with turn based battles.
I want turn-based battles still but I would like a more MGS1-4 approach as far as storytelling to be honest. Have an open world field would be cool to kinda like how Ni No Kuni does and the older FF games. Let me get a shot at making a FF game square!
I don't. They already have Bravely/Octopath and Dragonquest to fill that void. I'd rather they keep experimenting with the mainline series.
They have experimented long enough, and come up with nothing that beats the turn based battle systems of x and below.
@bigmalky Wrong. FF12 is as good if not better than any of 1-10.
Nebaku, it's a great game, but the slight MMO feel, and party control was a little off. It felt very finnicky to use, and the gambits were tough to play around with to start with. People gave the Junctioning system a hard time from VIII, but it felt more natural having more control over your party. I don't hate XII in any way, it was just the hardest to break at the start, and I preferred previous games' mechanics.
Every dragon quest is a 'throwback' they all play the same...
I’m happy with how FF15 turned out. Every time I started playing it felt like a new game over a years time. The final results is very pleasing to me
Just bought a used copy for $7 at Gamestop. I wonder how it is.
Somehow, that wasn't enough I guess.
Sigh this makes me upset about the cancelled DLC but at least the game was a huge success for square.
Graphics and music etc are generally excellent. The only thing that is awful is the battle system and special moves. If this game had the ff13 ATB it would have been superb to play
I love FFXIII battle system!!
goof for them, really. atleast some sort of good news
The final farewell XV
Going back to turn based battle systems isn't Square Enix problem with the franchise.
clearly someone liked the game. no reason to go back to turn based so soon
I thought it’d be at 9 million by now
Ship'em all back. What a farçe of a final fantasy game. 12 years in the making ... and next one will be "locked" behind a subscription. Enix!!! Get the ef out of that relationship with Square.
Hoping that FF16 has a female cast, all skantly wearing nothing but a tanga. About sisters falling in LOVE, but then one gets kidnapped and so the remaining sister and family have todo the same stuff every hero does since Dragon Warrior 1984. A sloppy, fatty Chinese girls An African goddess A red head Caucasian slut with high heels A Latina with a big bounty ... All with their teddies, pets as sidekick relief and as tactical component during fights. All in an empty, shallow, barren world ... with a Snowy region, a waterworld like zone, a green field and an inhabitable desert, high end zone where the cast is forced to drop of/change clothing due the sheer heat. Yes, clima changes will play an important part of FF16. You gotta eat, do your daily exercises everytime the player fires up the game. The ps5 camera will capture the player and you have to repeat the steps on screen, it also works as a piracy counter measure. You can buy clothing with mtx, you can buy homes, horses ... anything you want! Even goodies from other games, that have nothing to do with the game. All this and more for €10 each month. Of course a monthly 3 page bulletin is included, full of memes of the past and with the CEO telling a bad joke. ......
Three years that final result was something slapped together within three years and that was the issue. Tabata was assigned to the project and three years to put something together that that was from the remains of Vs. XIII
