I haven't played this bad boy yet. Hope to have Uncharted beaten this weekend and then I'll pick up DMC4 sometime thereafter. Glad to see Capcom is doing it right on both consoles.

True but capcom can choose if they want more gamers to play it

360 will sell more, 360 sells everything more.

Interesting. DMC4 Collector's Edition didn't make the top 5 for 360 sales. This could be good news for 360 owners as in a few months, remaining Collector's Editions should be significantly cheaper. The $20 premium for the CE is not worth it, but a $10 premium is a much better deal. Also, glad to see that Uncharted is still selling strong.

but of course being PAL we get less stuff in it

Also 360 version is $99
Ps3 version is 109.99

funny it saids "worldwide"

so it must of sold well on both systems including the Ps3 since it leads in worldwide sales.

You know, if you click on the link, you get a breakdown. DMC4 was number 1 for PS3 and 360 game sales in Japan and number 2 for PS3 and 360 game sale in the US. The PS3 CE was number 3 in the US while the 360 CE wasn't on the top 5 list. Amazing how much info you can glean by actually reading the article! Also, as an interesting side note, not unexpectedly has the PS3 version of DMC4 not made the top 5 in the UK. This to be expected by the foolish Retailers and Capcom who decide to charge extra for the PS3 version.

Has it even been released in the UK?

Keowrath3542d ago

Was released on Friday here in UK. I picked up my copy of the special edition on PS3 (which had a free T-shirt on top of the listed extras) I'm surprised if they have all the sales figures for UK so far but looking at the 360 list they have it in the UK line up there.

I'm not sure how well DMC usually does over here. LOL this is the first UK version of DMC I've bought (it usually comes out a few months after the US version in the past)

But being a fan of the series, it's nice to see it do well no matter what console.
