Go to Youtube, type in "ff7 remake physical copies" If there is more than 5 videos of people bragging about their physical copies then its ok.

Problem solved.

If it released on pc right now I would get it but I don’t wanna play this on my ps4. So I’m gonna wait til it releases on pc then I’ll get it cuz I only buy games once. I’m also still a little pissed that they titled this “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” and didn’t include “Episode 1” or “Part 1” in the title. A lot of my friends thought this was the complete FF7 Remake like the title says. I might honestly just wait for a complete edition a few years down the road because paying $60 for this just doesn’t sit well with me.

Thanks. It still amazes me the original box is still standing to this day and I still keep my old games/DVD still despite I went total digital gaming. I almost wanted to buy FF7 Remake digital but I couldn't resist getting the Deluxe Edition for my needs :)

Tbh, I’m a bit pissed at SE for how disingenuous they’ve been in marketing this game. It should flop. What was sold is not what was shown.

@vfighter: For FF7 Remake Deluxe Edition gets you:

But of course, if you truly love FF7, there's also the 1st Class Edition which comes with Cloud riding on his Motorcycle statue and its gonna cost you $330. You aren't missing much from the deluxe edition unless you like extra goodies.

@davillain-: I learned a long time ago those extras arent worth it for me, the art book maybe, but the rest nope. I would rarely look at the stuff, but that's still sweet and if youre into it enjoy it! I do need to buy the game though, looks awesome.

You know him that well do you, I know he hates cows, so he's entertaining here.

Well at least the sport I watch is actually sport, hating on you for watching fat guys cuddle each other is a bit rough ROFL.

@KBFloYd:

How many copies did UC4, GOW, and HZD sell?

Exclusives sell tremendously well on the ps4. Stop acting like this is the fault of it being exclusive to ps4, while a pandemic is going on, not to mention the lack of impacting advertisement for this game.

Making this biased thread just to bash the ps4?

The success of the ps4 must've really been hard on you this gen, huh?

Cool, retail game stores were shut down in the UK when the game dropped. They'll make up all the difference in digital.

If it makes you feel any better, LABO is 70% off at Best Buy now. Maybe it can beat all the VR sales out there like you claimed it would now. 🤣

I'd like to know what the terms of the exclusivity deal for this title is. I just don't see how it makes sense for Square-Enix, especially if Sony's ad strategy was lacking.

Because we all know the game would have sold waaaaay more copies if it had released on PC at the same time.

Typically the attach rate of a high-profile PS4 exclusive is only 10% or so. Maybe 15% over the gen, right? Still a lot but still leaving a lot on the table as well.

Or are they hoping to get a double-dip once they release on other platforms? I wonder if that's a major consideration for making these decisions.

It's absurd to try and compare physical sales of FF VII Remake to FF XV when FFXV released 4 years ago (when physical sales were higher), on multiple platforms, and at a time without a pandemic when stores were open and leaving your house was legal. This is not to mention the supply chain issues.

Have a look at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Final-Fantasy-VII-Remake-PlayStation-4/dp/B00ZS80PC2/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=ff7+remake&qid=1586979877&sr=8-2

You can't even buy a copy of the game on Amazon, and it's still the #1 Best Seller in PS4 games. I have a feeling that with digital sales and a return to semi-normalcy later, this game will do very, very well in lifetime sales.

I bought the deluxe version of the PS Store. It contains the same extras, just in digital form. The mini-soundtrack turned out to be kind of useless as I loved the music so much I pre-ordered the big-ass CD soundtrack that's set to arrive next month.

How are Dragon Quest and Fire Emblem contradictions/oxymorons? Dragon Quest means a quest to find a dragon. Fire Emblem means an emblem with a fire symbol.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Sales Off to a Great Start in Japan Despite Coronavirus Situation

Final Fantasy VII Remake Sales Off to a Great Start in Japan Despite Coronavirus Situation

PS4 sales spike

Final Fantasy VII Remake has proven to be a hit in Japan. The latest estimated sales numbers from Famitsu are in, and the long awaited remake tops the software charts by some distance. What's more, the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake has resulted in a sales spike for the PlayStation 4 itself. The console's been selling quite poorly in Japan for a while now, but it managed a decent 79,000 units last week.

Back to Final Fantasy VII Remake, the game has sold an impressive 703,000 physical copies. For context, Final Fantasy XV sold around 690,000 copies at launch, so Cloud and the gang are doing well so far. It's also worth keeping in mind that the ongoing coronavirus situation may have had some impact on physical distribution, and it's not hard to imagine that many players will have opted to buy the digital version instead. As such, it's reasonably safe to assume that the game's sales numbers will be much higher when taking digital copies into account.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Estimated to Be Third Best-Selling PS4 Exclusive on PSN

Final Fantasy VII Remake Estimated to Be Third Best-Selling PS4 Exclusive on PSN

Final Fantasy VII Remake doing well when it comes to sales isn't exactly unexpected, given the immense hype surrounding the remake of the most iconic Final Fantasy game ever made.

That said, it is still interesting to compare it to other similarly anticipated game releases. According to Gamstat, the PlayStation Network API tracking website, Final Fantasy VII Remake already managed to get 2.3 million players in the first three days since its release. This should amount to a nearly identical digital sales figure, though Square Enix has not revealed any official details for the time being.

So far, Final Fantasy VII Remake is only behind the two biggest first-party PlayStation 4 games to date, Marvel's Spider-Man by Insomniac and God of War by Sony Santa Monica. The friendly neighborhood Marvel hero already had 3 million players in the first three days since its launch, while the latest Nordic adventure of Kratos registered 2.4 million players in the same period of time, according to Gamstat.

Needless to say, this bodes well for Square Enix. Furthermore, unlike the other two aforementioned games, Final Fantasy VII Remake won't be a PlayStation 4 exclusive forever; we already know there's a one-year exclusivity period, and there's already evidence of a PC version. An Xbox One port is far from unlikely, too, given the increased Square Enix support on Microsoft's console platform.

Meanwhile, be assured that the game is very much going to be worth the wait as pointed out by Francesco in his review.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is a masterful modernization of the series' classic formula. The game is an extremely solid JRPG that looks, sounds and plays great, despite some pacing issues and linearity. That said, the unexpected story twists may sour the experience a bit for those who expected a faithful remake.

this is what happens when you release exclusive on a dead console. square needed to go multiplat from the start. what an embarrasment.

https://metro.co.uk/2020/04/13/final-fantasy-7-remake-sells-less-half-final-fantasy-15-uk-sales-charts-12548763/

ff7 sold half what ff15 did in the uk. was it corona's fault? did people buy digital instead?

lets see how japan and npd numbers fare.

so much hype for this. what a shame.




Final Fantasy VII: Remake
was the best-selling game of April and instantly becomes the #3 best-selling game year-to-date. Final Fantasy VII: Remake is currently the best-selling game of 2020 on PlayStation 4.

Final Fantasy VII: Remake sets a new launch month Final Fantasy franchise sales record in both unit and dollar sales. Both records were previously held by Final Fantasy XV which launched in the December 2016 tracking period.

People crying "Physical copies during Corona waaah", but Amazon worked just fine during Corona. I purchased several physical copies during Corona, everything delivered next day 🤷‍♂️ I purposely didn't get FF7 on PS4 because I want to play it at 60fps next year on PC.
