Beat Competition!

Final fantasy first bounced onto the scene in 1999. All this while, it’s been battling stiff competition from other game providers like X-box One and PS4.

Of course, it is also an advantage to have a taste of the game firsthand. Most people will want to be the first to experience the feeling of having the game on their phones for the first time. Besides, you expect the provider to record the highest number of sales a few hours before the expiry of the $16.99 sale price. Once the price hits $21, you expect the purchases to go down slightly before shooting up high again.

It will be thrilling to have the game on your phone and move with it everywhere. The change of theme and feel will make things even more exciting.
