The latest Final Fantasy installment breaks the old record held by Final Fantasy VIII.
  Preorders of Square's upcoming Final Fantasy IX, scheduled for a July 7th release in Japan, have topped the one million mark faster than Final Fantasy VIII, which formerly held that distinction.

  As of June 17, FFIX preorders in convenience stores all over Japan stood at 1,002,227 units. At (as of June 14), preorders were up to 16,107 units, bringing the total preorders between both sources to 1,018,334.

  This total does not include preorders made outside and convenience stores. If you consider the preorders made at other Japanese videogame retailers, the overall number of preorders in Japan is even higher.

  On a side note, as part of a special promotion, people who preorder the game get a free little VIVI stuffed toy.
