It would be crazy not selling well after the price cut.

Final Fantasy 15 Ships Over 6 Million Copies - Final Fantasy XV selling well.

Final Fantasy XV has shipped over six million copies to retailers worldwide, publisher Square Enix has announced.

In a press release, the Japanese company confirmed the figure also includes digital sales, but does not necessarily mean six million units have been sold through to consumers. The divide between digital and physical sales isn't clear.

Square Enix had previously stated that the game shipped over five million copies at launch. Before that, Final Fantasy XV's director, Hajima Tabata, had said it needs to sell 10 million copies to be a "success." He later clarified that comment, stating that 10 million is the studio's personal goal, not necessarily how many units it needs to move to turn a profit.

It was a long road to release for Final Fantasy XV, as the game was announced as Final Fantasy Versus XIII more than a decade ago, at E3 2006. At E3 2013, the game was re-revealed as Final Fantasy XV. It was delayed multiple times after that before landing at its eventual November 29 launch date.

In GameSpot's verdict, we called it a "fascinating game" with a "beautiful world and exciting challenges." For more, check out our full Final Fantasy XV review.

Trading on name and hype alone at this point.

Word of mouth has generally been positive so i'd expect that helps. Not everyone plays just for the story. The others aspects of the game get lots of praise.

I've had a different experience. Forum posts, reviews and friends echo my thoughts. Barren world, clunky (and easy) battle system sprinkled with repetitive fetch quests.
