They've GOT to do something a little special for the FFVIII physical release on PS4

It's got Steelbook written all over it :3

Wishful thinking I know

bouzebbal1078d ago

So twin pack for switch and only ff8 for ps4?? Makes a lot of sense

LegoIsAwesome1077d ago

And NSW will also get a physical copy of FF9. That's so unfair my FF collection is mostly in PS...

FFVII on a cartridge

The irony will never stop being hilarious

zenintude1078d ago

Yup, especially given this is how the game was marketed:

I all ready own the twin pack on the Switch and it's a great buy and it's worth grabbing wish there was a PS4 and XB1 twin pack as well I'd collect them I own FF10 on every platform. Square should also drop FF9 with FF12 on a cart/disc I would be happy to rebuy both over again.

Is this Europe only? Why the hell does NA get shafted so much?

Pughski1078d ago

It's been out for NA for awhile. Search it in the nintendo shop.

ZeekQuattro1078d ago

The NA retail version came out shortly after 8 was posted on the eshop.

CrimsonWing691077d ago

I’m pretty sure we only have this digitally. Otherwise I would’ve hella bought the physical version.

Knightofelemia1077d ago (Edited 1077d ago )


I bought the Twin Pack for the Switch off of Amazon it's been in North America for a while.


CrimsonWing691077d ago

That’s an import.

I was talking like an official NA release. Yea I can import this Euro one, too.

jznrpg1078d ago

This is a pretty desperate way of using the ff7 remake hype

Final Fantasy VII Remake shipments and digital sales top seven million

Total worldwide shipments and digital sales for Final Fantasy VII Remake surpassed seven million units, Square Enix announced.

What's interesting about this is, it's across 3 platforms in 3.5 years. FF16 sells almost half of this in a matter of days, but a certain group are convinced it's a failure.

Both games have clearly sold well, but they can't carry the weight of every bad decision a publisher makes.

CrimsonWing6915d ago

Pretty sure FF7 Remake did 3.5 mill on ONLY PS4 in 3 days, which was faster than FF16’s sales to the 3 mill mark.

FF16 didn’t sell enough to recoup the dev cost and sales have slowed, which consequently made Square Enix pay out of their own pocket the dev cost so that future sales of FF16 would be at a profit. This dropped net profits by 65% and operating income plummeted by 78%. I don’t know what fantasy world where you’d call that a success.

I don’t get why we’re at this FF16 vs FF7 Remake point. Like the game you like, but let’s not kid ourselves on things.

you also need to consider that the biggest ff7 haters are final fantasy fans themselves. alot of ppl just didnt like it cause it wasnt the 100% faithful remaster they wanted it to be.

raWfodog14d ago (Edited 14d ago )

FF16 sold well enough to make a profit. It just didn’t make enough of a profit to cover the losses incurred by other titles.

“Analysts told the publication that Final Fantasy 16 failed to make up for the poor performance of previous Square Enix flops, such as Marvel’s Avengers and Forspoken, and mobile games that were shut down soon after launch.”

They were looking for the ‘high end’ of profits but they were a lot lower than they hoped.

“During a post-earnings call to analysts, Kiryu said the high end of the company's expectations were not met and the slow adoption of the PlayStation 5 was a limiting factor”

That seems awfully low given how hyped the game was and how well it was reviewed

Not to mention, it says shipments not physical copies sold, so the amount that people own is probably only at six million

This might just be me over-thinking/expecting what the game should have sold though, and this could be great for all I know


Which JRPGs Should FFXVI Fans Play Next?

Final Fantasy XVI is a thrilling action-heavy spin on the RPG formula, and other JRPGs like Tales of Arise and NieR:Automata are just as exciting.

shinoff218387d ago

I'd say try one of the older final fantasy games. 6, 7, or 9. That's final fantasy at its best.
