Final Fantasy IX scores big with retailers.
SquareSoft gave us some surprising news today. According to NPD Group's TRSTS Video Games Data, Final Fantasy IX debuted at the number one spot in November and holding it through nearly the whole month, and in a roughly 12 day period, Final Fantasy IX has sold more units than FFVII and VIII combined! Squaresoft also said that the Final Fantasy franchise has sold over 30 million units, which isn't surprising at all, making the FF series the most popular videogaming series in the world. Here is what Babbage's/Software Etc. had to say about FFIX and how it is affecting the company's sales: "We've seen a terrific response to Final Fantasy IX in our stores," said Doreen McKenzie, Director of Merchandising, Video Games. "Copies of the game have flown off the shelves throughout the holiday shopping frenzy. This title will be one of the top sellers this holiday season."
