Back in late July, Square Enix announced it had shipped a million copies of title Dragon Quest V in Japan. Now Square Enix is back with another DQV announcement: The company has sold a million copies of the DS remake, which went on sale July 17th in Japan. Let this be a lesson to everyone! Shipped and sold are not the same. 『ドラクエIV』をしのぐペースで大台を突破 [Famitsu]
@GnatB:Just because you don't like the remakes does not make people who buy them at all 'stupid'. It's remakes that provide a steady stream of cash and if your paying attention, you should know of SE's cash issues.
And SE did release a brand new IP less then a year ago, it was The World Ends With You.
