shinoff2183120d ago

Yea there biggest ip, they didn't think it'd sell physically. Fking dumb. I bought 6 cause I really wanted to play but square left 50 60 dollars on the table

gold_drake120d ago

shinoff2183120d ago (Edited 120d ago )

I bought 6 because I never beat it. I got toward the end when I was younger. I made it the first game I streamed. Took me like 11 12 parts to finish total 54 60 hours ish

Great game

ziggyzinfirion120d ago

I'm still waiting for a widely available physical copies for ps4.

P_Bomb120d ago

Great as a set or individually. Recommend!

-Foxtrot120d ago

Make more physical PS4 copies and we’ll talk

Only hope now is they re-release it as a PS5 title so they technically aren’t making new copies, just ones for a new system


Square Enix's Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster Series Has Now Sold Three Million Copies

Square Enix's Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series has been a huge success, with the Japanese publisher and developer announcing sales have now hit the three million mark worldwide.

I immediately went to these after finishing FF16 and it reminded me why I fell in love with this series in the first place. It had me on such a high I went through the task of platinuming FF9 and I have to say... that might be the greatest FF game in the entire series. Don't get me wrong, FF7 is up there, but if you play 1-6 and then go into 9, it's such an incredible love letter to the entire series before it.

I actually started up 10 to work on the platinum and, while the voice acting kills me, I'm really learning to appreciate 10 and I'm considering it to be the last good "traditional' FF game. Even though you can see the origins of where the series started to veer drastically off-course.

How did you do the jump rope trophy? I feel that’s impossible in the remake.

CrimsonWing6927d ago (Edited 27d ago )

Total cheese. Looked up a script to run and used Remote Play on a PC. There’s a bunch of really good YouTube tutorials on how to use it, but yea, without that I could never have gotten it.

As for Bloodlust, I set up a turbo controller at the part with the plant monsters that rush you in the first forest area and left my console on for 13 hours with auto battle, lol.

Those are the only 2 that I think were painful. Everything else is pretty easy with a walkthrough so you miss the ATEs.

Redgrave27d ago

As CrimsonWing said, there are PC scripts you can download and run through remote play. There is some tinkering involved though, between display and latency settings. It's individualized between each person based on your setup, but it's not too hard to find your sweet spot.

andy8527d ago

Nah its very possible. It's just the transition at 300 that's difficult. If you can get to 200 most goes you can easily get to 1000

shinoff218327d ago

I would've bought the whole series if they didn't screw over the ps4 base with not releasing a physical I did buy 6 though.

PunksOnN4G27d ago

I would buy them all if they sold the dang disk for decent price and have enough to go aorund so i onyl bought 1 instead of all them and no plans to buy the rest till i can get a hard copy like they offered then tookaway from ps fans.

franwex27d ago

Any chance of a Dragon Quest collection by any chance there, Squre-ENIX?

Michiel198927d ago

they are making a 2dhd version of DQ3 I think? or at least one of them, that's probably the closest you're gonna get anytime soon. I'm kinda hyped for it since I never played the series until 11 came out

andy8527d ago

So the pixel remaster made more profit than FF16. That's actually pretty amusing 😂

goldwyncq27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

Well, yes. It'd take a lot more than three million copies sold for XVI to become profitable.

VersusDMC27d ago

FFXVI sold 3 mil in less than a week and the Pixel Remaster just reached 3 mil after releasing in April.

Are people assuming FFXVI hasn't sold anything since that 3 mil announcement? It's in the top 10 best selling games of the year in the july NPDs.

Samonuske27d ago

Plus this includes Steam and I think Mobile which released over a year ago.

andy8527d ago (Edited 27d ago )

Not at all, but given the fact the pixel remaster will have cost next to nothing to produce and FF was a multi year development with huge advertising (and the fact the pixel remaster was more expensive too). It will have made miles more profit. FF16 did disappear of the chart almost instantly though. I'm not sure its even reached 4M yet. Certainly not 5 or they would have announced it.

Review - Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster (Switch) | WayTooManyGames

WTMG's Thomas Medina: "Final Fantasy was the game that literally saved Squaresoft. It transformed a no name company into one of the biggest Publishers in the industry. And the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster shows why, with it’s simple yet elegant plot and gameplay. Crystals, Warriors of Light, Airships, Bahamut, it all began here. Playing through the game was a bit like falling in love with the genre all over again. And all I could think at the end was that this should be the future of the franchise. Looking into the past and remembering why we all became invested in this franchise in the first place. Not endlessly chasing modern trends, hoping to strike gold. But regardless of the future, at least we finally have this phenomenal collection on consoles. Now we can all kill Chaos like it’s 1987. "
