I thought I'd start this as it's a topic all its own. And here we go! Within 24 hours of release, according to a press announcement by Square Enix, the game has already sold/shipped five million copies worldwide counting both physical and digital sales. This makes it the fastest-selling title in the series to date. It has set sales records in Japan and Asia, and continues to sell strongly in its release regions (North America, Latin America, Japan, China and Europe). THE FOLLOWING IS NOT FROM THE PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT, BUT MY OWN OPINION: If it's sold just five million in one day, imagine where it could be within six months, or a year. Even with the expected sales declines with new releases. In any case, it's blown all previous records set for the series, and indeed many other RPGs or games in general, out of the water.
