Nier: Automata sold more than 1.5 million copies

Yup, you read that headline right, Square Enix and Platinum Games’ Nier: Automata has now sold more than 1.5 million copies. That’s the worldwide figure consisting of both physical sales and digital sales.

Considering the cost of the game and how niche it is, I think it sold really well. Even Square Enix President, Yosuke Matsuda said it exceeded their expectations.

I can’t comment on the game myself as I’ve not played it, nor have I played the first game. Having said that, everyone I know who has played it, loved it.

If you happen to be interested in it, the game is available on PS4 and PC. The first game was on PS3, but you’ll need a little bit of luck finding a copy. I’ve been looking around for one for a while with no luck.

    Ok so can they please drop the price a bit now please

    • I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes a PS4 deal in the coming weeks. Hang in there.

      • DemonGamer

        🙁 I hate digital

        • I have a feeling it’s going to be hard to find physical copies of NieR: Automata in not too long.So best you get it when you can. RARU only had the standard edition left from what I can see:

          • DemonGamer

            Damn , well then psn will have to get it to R400 only then

      • Took 4 months until FF15 price came crashing down. So it should be soon.

  • It’s going to be 1.5 million and 1 at the end of next month 😛

    One of the coolest and interesting games I have played in the last 2 years.

    • Just recently started it and it’s got that typical Platinum Games flavour and style to it. Enjoying what I’ve played so far. The fighting/combat reminds me a little of Metal Gear Rising, which ain’t a bad thing.

      • AndriyP

        I think that most of the people that played it dug it a lot. I think you will too. Its one of those titles thats a rough diamond, it has it rough edges but when you take a step back you can see its precious.

        PS. Walked into store last night, walked out with Nintendo Switch. spent 4 hours fighting with the wife in Snipperclips most fun we’ve had arguing ever 🙂
        Surprisingly it was the wife that convinced me into getting it right there and then.
        Look forward to Karting with you guys when I get around to getting Mario Kart.

        • Oh yay! Yes, do come and join us for Mario Kart. We always have a bunch of South African’s in the game. When you getting Breath of the Wild?

          • AndriyP

            Well at the moment its between BotW and Mario Kart still this month. Leaning towards BotW since I have something that can last for a few weeks to play with the lady.
            I have to say besides the wifi strength issue the console feels amazing, Ill definitely be enjoying it for the next few years. Cant wait for all of them JRPGs to come rolling out.

          • Yeah, it’s a solid little console. I reckon you’re going to see a wack of support for it from Japanese developers, so expect all the JRPGs you can dream of appearing on it. Now that it’s portable the 3DS devs will flock to it too.

          • AndriyP

            And while we are on topic of Platinumgames and Switch this made me happy today.

          • Word on the street is that it could be Bayonetta 3. No complaints from me.

  • Nucleous

    I’m waiting for steam sale on this one. I just want to see 2B’s sexy behind on my screen…

  • Skittle

    I really want to finish the game but 9S’ play-through is sooooo boooooring

  • Leon Govender

    game has such a masterful soundtrack……breathtaking
