PostSubject: Square Enix Hopes Final Fantasy VII Remake will boost PS4 sales   Mon Jul 13, 2015 2:56 pm



Quote :
As it stands, Sony’s PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console for the month of May, and depending on which market you are looking at, has managed to dominate the charts in the previous months as well. However it seems that Square Enix wants to give Sony a helping hand with the remake of Final Fantasy VII.

During the week, Square Enix announced that they would be remaking Final Fantasy VII and apart from pleasing fans of the franchise and making new fans, Square Enix has other reasons for it as well. Speaking to Engadget, Final Fantasy VII remake director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that they are hoping that this will help increase the number of PS4s sold by Sony.

According to Nomura, “Why now? This week at E3 we announced several titles coming to the PS4: not only FFXV, Kingdom Hearts 3, and World of Final Fantasy, but [also] a new Star Ocean and more. Rather than announce the remake after those titles went on sale, we wanted to give gamers something that would make them happy – open them up, perhaps, to buying into the PS4.”

This seems to confirm earlier reports that the next-gen consoles in Japan aren’t doing as well as they are in other markets. Last year we reported that both the PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One weren’t selling as well so by introducing games like a remade Final Fantasy VII, Square Enix is hoping that this will make the consoles more appealing. As it stands, the remake appears to be only for the PS4 at this moment, but perhaps it could be announced for the Xbox One and PC later on.

I'm sure it will. That is if the game is done before the PS5 comes out. =/

How much more could they boost PS4 sales? Isn't already selling faster than the PS2 did?

It's surprising how much PS4 is selling when it has no games. Well it has games, but the heavy hitters haven't came in yet. Same goes for Xbox One as well.

I remember someone posting an article about Sony themselves admitting they don't understand why the PS4 is selling so well. It's quite fascinating. I'm guessing it's jaded Wii and Xbox 360 owners going to PS4 instead of the competition, and maybe last gen lasted so long that people desperately wanted a new gen console that they bought one as soon as they could even though it didn't have any games.

@Stigma Oh yeah, I remember that article, lol! I think I was the one that posted it. But yeah, I think at lot of people have switch over to PlayStation this gen. I mean, PS4 was the most played console for the Call of Duty: Black Ops III beta. Which is funny because Xbox use to be the home for Call of Duty last gen.
