We all knew that this game would sell big. But 3.5 million copies in the span of three days is just mind boggling. Accounting with the current world events, it is likely a factor that contributed to boost in digital sales.
A game that has been asked for over a decade and the fans that have endured till now. It is amazing that a portion of the sales proves how many there are. What I’m more curious is how many of them are newcomers or people who are playing Final Fantasy 7 for the first time. Speaking as one, I never really got around playing the original game. I was born at the end of 1990 so it was a little late for me. I had an enjoyable time talking with my brother who has played the original. He gave perspective on what was new and what was retained from the original. I just earned the platinum trophy of the game and completed the play log in a little over 100 hours. You will get your money’s worth in multiple playthroughs.
Overall, it is well deserved and hears hoping we can expect the final sales when they receive further sales numbers.
