Final Fantasy VII Remake Ships 3.5 Million Units In 3 Days

According to the Square Enix official Twitter accountFinal Fantasy VII Remake has shipped and digitally sold 3.5 Million units in just 3 days.

This is causing fans online to tout it as the fastest selling PS4 exclusive, beating out Spider-Man at 3.3 Million Units. However this might not be the case. Square Enix have said ‘shipped and sold digitally’ – meaning these aren’t all direct consumer purchases, but to shopfronts as well.

Although comparing this to Final Fantasy XV’s initial sales of 5 Million Units shows that Final Fantasy VII Remake is on track to break some sales records, and rival its predecessor.

God Of War sold 3.1 Million Units at launch, and Spider-Man’s 3.3 Million is the PS4’s current record. No doubt Final Fantasy VII’s 3.5 Million ‘shipped and digital sales’ isn’t far behind as of right now. Considering the game launched on the 10th of April we should be hearing about total sales in there near future.

Despite fans being split on the Remake itself, most took to Twitter to congratulate and thank Square Enix for pulling off what was a skeptical release.

Some have been having more fun with it than others though. Check this out.
