NieR: Automata Shipments and Digital Sales Break Two Million Units

Square Enix has announced worldwide shipments and digital sales for NieR: Automata have broken two million units.

This new milestone comes after the game reached 1.5 million shipments and digital sales roughly four months ago.

In related news, Square Enix confirmed they’re hiring for a new NieR-related project, however further details aren’t confirmed yet.

NieR: Automata is now available for PC and PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough written and video review for NieR: Automata here (we highly recommend it!).

    They deserve it. As long as they stay true to their vision I know they will deliver gold next time as well…

    Good on them. I’m glad when a niche game is successful.

    Isn’t that actually considered a failure in Square Enix eyes? Not that I’m complaining and would love some more of this.

    biggest problem is that some stay true but ppl tend to be sheep and buy a copy paste game, Meaning games like COD that get billions but never actually changes.

    For their flagship franchises sure, but Nier/Drakengard is the definition of niche, so Automata even breaking 1 million probably surpassed their expectations.

    Has anyone ever told you that you’re the SJW of console peasants, ISIS?

    Funny you should say that. You know what SJWs love? Labels and identity. How is “console peasants” any different than “cis het males”? People in glass houses and all that.

    Oh please, by that logic you can say anybody who ever uses an insult is an SJW. I call him a peasant because of the dumb shit that comes out of his mouth on the subject, and an SJW because of how blindly tribalistic he is.

    I believe this game was more profitable than Final Fantasy XV, and if S-E want more profit they can still launch a Switch port, even with a lot of downgrades a bunch of people would still be buying the game

    No, an insult based on identity is typical for SJWs, which is exactly what you did. You also didn’t answer my question – how is the one label different than the other – mainly how is demonising one group different from the other?

    Also he’s an obvious troll.

    Console peasant doesn’t demonize anyone, it mocks retards who are easily triggered. And the difference is one label is based on someone’s actions while another (cis white male) is based on a genetic accident. If you attach playing console games to your core identity, and take that term the same way a black person would take being called a nigger, you’re a loser who desperately needs therapy.

    It depends on the game’s budget, how much was spent on marketing, and how many units they would need to sell in order to break even.

    That’s why some franchises can stay afloat with very little sales (like Senran Kagura) while others are considered failures even with being million sellers (like Tomb Raider).

    “Cis het male doesn’t demonize anyone, it mocks retards who are easily triggered.”. You are basically using that “it’s a joke bro” defence. You are calling people who choose to play console games peasants in the same way people who prefer not to alter their genitals and undergo hormone treatment are called cis. I’ll ask again – what is the difference between the two?

    Also by your logic ISIS is completely justified in using “PCucks” or are you being just as tribalistic as he is?

    Where did I call all console gamers peasants you dipshit? I own several consoles myself, including a PS4. I just like to laugh at how easily it offends people, it’s really that simple dude. ISIS is perfectly free to say PCuck for the exact same reason, but that doesn’t mean I’m not gonna shit talk him back. And I already answered your question: action vs non-action.

    “Where did I call all console gamers peasants you dipshit?” – so using the “console peasants” term is not calling all console players peasants? How is this not the same rhetoric that feminists use – “toxic masculinity doesn’t mean that men are toxic”?

    ” I just like to laugh at how easily it offends people, it’s really that simple dude. ISIS is perfectly free to say PCuck for the exact same reason, but that doesn’t mean I’m not gonna shit talk him back.” – so you are just as tribalistic and trollish as he is. Good to know.

    “And I already answered your question: action vs non-action.” – no, you didn’t. I said that choosing to be “cis” or trans is also an action. Again – how are the two insults different?

    True that the game is Niche but i wouldn’t call most of Square enix games high end games anymore.even FF isn’t that interesting anymore cause it tries to play it too save.
    Would like for them to focus on more games that creators like Yoko Taro makes, hell even games that Suda51, Shinji Mikami, make more interesting games than what nowadays mainstream games Devs are making. Just sucks that ppl aren’t investing in those kinda games.

    Biggest Faulire of Tomb raider is wasting resouces for multiplayer. but i do think ppl are hard to please nowadays when it comes to games that stand out.

    how in the hell someone making a joke mocking PC players devolves into a discussion about SJW?

    Well DrearierSpider used the term for some reason, which lead to the general discussion about behavioural patterns.

    Console peasant /= console gamer, just like PlayStation/Xbox/Nintendo fanboy /= PlayStation/Xbox/Nintendo gamer. Take that however you will.
