Has a strong showing at #2. :) Great title.

T3mpr1x5087d ago

Good to see that game selling well, I might give in and buy it this week...

ftwrthtx5087d ago

The demo does a great job of selling the game as well. Pretty long and substantial just for a demo.

RKRigney5087d ago

It's amazing what the standardization of demos has done for digital games :)

Noctis Aftermath5086d ago (Edited 5086d ago )

FFVII is a beast, always up the top-end of the charts, yo square i think you know what you need to do concerning FFVII.

Also i wonder what the total worldwide digital download sales are of FFVII, anyone know?

ThanatosDMC5086d ago

They should add FF8 too and maybe i'll give FF9 a chance again if it comes to the PSN.

i guess all that delay over Trine didn't hurt the sales.

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.

CrimsonWing6919d 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.

gold_drake19d ago

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.

raWfodog18d ago (Edited 18d 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

"And lastly, famous Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling helped to create the action-RPG’s setting. What’s really fascinating, though, is that the game was partially financed by taxpayers from Rhode Island (which allegedly lost the state millions of dollars). Yikes!"

1. Now infamous Schilling
2. No allegedly, it did. And they couldn't pay it back.
3. What really lost the money wasn't the SP release but the MMO they were working on. This was supposed to be an introduction into the MMO world.

Soy70d ago

I hate counting limited editions for these lists. I mean, they're made to be rare and expensive. It's far more interesting to hear about the NCAAs (even if most people know that one already) and the El Chavos than some massive hit that came with a $200 statue at retail.

gamerz69d ago

Me too. Here's the best I can do:

El Chavo Kart $90.14
NCAA Football 14 $87.72
Spiderman: Edge of Time $75.94
Spiderman Web of Shadows $75.09
Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions $67.76

Christopher69d ago

Wow, El Chavo Kart is not at all what I expected by the name. 100% looks like a Sackboy Kart game.

Soy69d ago

It's so odd that so many Spider-Man games are seemingly given lower print runs, even if they're not the best games.

jznrpg69d ago (Edited 69d ago )

Most Xbox games don’t hold as much value compared to other systems. Kameo, Blue Dragon, Last Remnant , and a handful or 2 of other games that I kept.

sadraiden69d ago

Fallout 3 and Bioshock Infinite are the rarest games of all time.
