Sales have most likely stagnated by now.

I am sure there are plenty of "AAA" games that had price cuts faster then you claim FFXV had them, the fact that you can not think of any just shows how memorable they were.

Price drop came after 80% of initial buyers got scammed into believing the game would be good.

Now theres so many copies floating in the secondary market just like FF13 did, but that initial purchase from us suckers is all the statistic needed to count as a "sale".

But it still outsold every Final Fantasy game ever made. So it couldn't have been that bad.

By that logic, FFXV wouldn't have sold as much if it wasn't for the previous installments that created its gigantic fanebase.

Nier Automata just went on sale for $45. Must be a crap game.

I really don't see Nier too different from FFXV.

I mean aside from the awesome camera, and the side quests having a better narrative ... they're pretty much the same.

Didn't it already ship 6 million copies anyways? If the price drops at least more people on the fence might consider trying it out, and I think the game is worth a shot for fans of action games.

Shipped not sold!

PAID!!!!!!

Yes, they were likely paid as I doubt they would ship 6m games for free.

Uhm. For the record.....

Nier Automata was $40 on Amazon about three weeks after launch, for a good whole week or so. It's now back to $50.

So there's that.

Don't bother. Trumplogic and Alternative Facts reign supreme here. If the collective dips***s say the game is crap, the game is crap! Facts, review scores, sales, comparisons - they have no place here!

Pretty sure this isn't true.


You are correct, however, it is the fastest selling. This from a january article...


Square Enix announced that total global shipment and digital sales for their PS4 and Xbox One RPG, Final Fantasy XV, has exceeded 6 million units.

The announcement from the latest press release comes after their previous milestone of 5 million in worldwide shipments and digital sales that only took a day after its release, making it the fastest-selling Final Fantasy game to date.
