#TeamRelease's Strongest Soldier
Wait, FF7R is permanently a PS console exclusive? That kinda sucksresetera is that you? lol
In all seriousness it sold more than 5m even before the steam release. That's decent overall and sales will increase as new parts come out due to its episodic nature.
Even if Sony didn't like the numbers for some reason (even though they extended exclusivity and paid for it to be perma-console exclusive), you have to consider the marketing value of final fantasy vii and the playstation brand.
That's worth more than any game's sales could offer.
