I'm glad Neir: Automata is doing so well, especially from a relatively obscure series. It was a memorable game that is way better than anyone expected it to be. I wonder if this going to prompt a "remaster" of the orginal Nier or Drakengard games in the future.

This is pale in comparison to GTAV.

It's interesting how some developers/publishers are happy when they are selling 1.5 million while 5+ million was "not meeting expectation" for some :/

Nay, don't ask Atlus/Sega-level treat from the Squambag Enix.

Atlus charged 10$ for shitty costumes and cosmetics for Persona 5 while the DLCs for FFXV are priced 5$ for each episode with new costumes and weapons for free. I think we know who the scumbag is here clearly.

....I don't know what country you live in but the costumes cost 7 dollars and are purely optional.

It would still be Square Enix depending on who you ask giving how XV didn't exactly make everyone want to throw babies in the air.

GTAV spent more than $5 million (Automata's approx budget, including the non-existant marketing) on advertising, though. It's a case of AAA games versus AA or even arguably A games in the case of something like Persona 5
