I came across a link leading to a NeoGaf thread that actually wasn't filled with toxic comments. There was a comment that stuck out to me: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1352588 "FF7 had great legs, as well as re-releases. Just because it didn't open higher than XV doesn't mean that XV will sell what it has lifetime. By all accounts FF7 will remain the best selling entry in the franchise, and that will probably never change." I don't know if this is true. FFVII has been re-released multiple times over the years on several different platforms. FFXV hasn't gone to PC as of yet, and also the gaming environment is a lot different than what it used to be back in 1997. Hell I remember back then there weren't a lot of games coming out that I would be interested in. That isn't the same story today, but I at least hold myself back from ending up with a giant backlog I'll never cut down. I guess the point of the prior remark is that it's more likely a lot of people won't really stick with a game like they would in the past just due to the number of games coming out today. I'm sure the Remake regardless of how it turns out will increase sales of the original some due to curiosity from both negative and positive reception. Still, I think it would be more fair to compare sales records of the remake (despite being multiple parts) to FFXV if anything since they'll both be on a more even playing field judgement wise imo. Let me know what you think.
