Capcom: Resident Evil 6 has been successful "to some degree"

EG:In a Q&A published today on its investor site following the release of its second quarter financial year 2012 results, Capcom remained cautious about the high-profile action horror sequel, which has a Metascore of 67 on Xbox 360 and 75 on PlayStation 3. (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

“We therefore believe it is too early to reach a conclusion about how users view the game"

Really, jesus christ Capcom how much denial can you be in. The majority of people thougjt it was crap, look at the reviews and complaints for god sake. Sales mean nothing, it dosent mean a game is good, this is why buying a game to "give it a chance" is always bad when you know deep down it will most likley suck

I love how they said they will listen to complaints, they didnt do that after RE5, I mean co-op is still in it for a start and it was a massive action game, two of the biggest complaints from RE5 were ignored.

RE5 comes out...

We want zombies!
We want to move while shooting!
We want more of the original story!

RE6 comes out...

Nevermind. We don't want any of that, for some reason.

Simply, amazing.

Just STFU. And NO the majority don't hate it, forums, nastaligic reviews don't mean shit...these are whining crybabies who don't know what they want. Besides why should Capcom care when the changes done to Resident Evil has given them more money? RE5 sold better than past RE titles. RE6 is sure to do well too. Accept that and move on.

So you are ok with that even if the series will keep going at the same current level , people like you are really going to ruin the gaming industry with their "CHANGE" idea's !

If you personally see what capcom did is a change for the franchise the original Survival horror is Change too from now on .. the military mainstream Hollywood TPS style is getting old so fast these days , whether you accept or not people are not that stupid to accept what capcom want's from "the COD public" over the legendary series that been ruined by capcom policy recently , you simply don't care what the fate of the series is , you don't care what the world wants yet you still want more of that to come and we staring at you with silence .

You wanna know what the best for the series

simple and with all respect >>> S H U T UP !

Oh here we go again another guy that just doesn't get it.
Forget about the older games Resident Evil is a bad action game that's why people don't like it.

Go enjoy your Michael Bay videogames until the next one comes along and you can count on people not caring about RE6 by next year.
You know why? because it's boring.
Shoot the enemies....move on.....shoot the enemies.....move on......clunky controls, poor camera and a broken cover and QTE system.
Oh wait though it's because we're all nostalgic fools and want static camera's yeah that's why Resident Evil 4 was met with critical acclaim and considered the best in the series but let's not mention that because we're stuck in the past yeah we need to embrace this awesome innovative change to resident evil that is a mediocre generic third person original.

I agree with Monstar, take for example people on N4G who complain and whine about CoD being the same game over and over again. How they cry out for it to be changed in some way.
(even though it does change)

How long do you think RE would be able to turn out more of Code Veronica style gameplay before the rabid folks here would start to say the samething? How RE has become stale and the same thing over and over again.

And then you have to take into account the actual story, yes for me it's a little too much on the action Michael Bay side but considering where the story was headed from 4 what did you all expect?

"Really, jesus christ Capcom how much denial can you be in"

RE 6 has sold over 4.5 nillion copies world wide...why would they be denial. If anything they are happy that they changed the formula in RE6.

We hardcore gamers on N4G and other sites are a minority compared to the casuals who play games instead of trolling gamesing websites.

I was pissed that CAPCOM took this new direction with RE5 and 6 but I got over it and moved and you should too.

In order for Company to survive they need to change, its either that or make Call of Duty eat your lunch.

1. Western reviews aren't a good way to judge a Japanese game. Especially not user reviews.
2. Resident Evil IS a Japanese game. Some may not realize that because of how "western" it may seem now.
3. Game is selling well. So obviously they did something right.
ritsuka666  +   1190d ago
Capcom recently revised down its shipped expectations for Resi 6 from seven million to six million. Why?"

Maybe because people are disappointed in this game and returned again for stores? Anyway,Resident 6 sell good in 1st week because of the name, after that this happens.

Capcom=mediocre studio now days...

I really hope that the mixed critical reception of RE6 - and it's clearly less-than-expected commercial performance - makes Capcom think long and hard about the future direction of the series.

Create a proper survival-horror reboot for God's sake! The audience IS there for it.

The Survival horror genre is simply dead, the core audience for it ISN'T there, why do you think RE went this direction?

Capcom will not make nearly enough if it just stuck to a slow paced surival horror ALA the classics. They could only fine tune another action horror. It's the COD generation and Capcom is all about the MONEY. Do the math. They won't change anything.

Go back and play Resident Evil 6 on pro, i bet most of you won't even have enough ammo left, let a lone beat it. The core mechanics in RE6 and overall quality of the game is well done, best Melee system IMO and a very well done gameplay mechanic..expecially when given the time to master, so get you heads out of the f'en past and give it a shot or move on to something else.
shodan74  +   1190d ago
The core audience IS there. Amnesia: The Dark Descent has sold 1.4 million, solely through digital distribution on the PC and without the backing of a major publisher. Imagine what a great horror game served-up by a major publisher across multiple platforms could achieve.

There are millions of neglected horror fans out there just waiting for another great console horror to arrive. Not everything has to pander to the COD audience, and a huge number of gamers are getting mightily bored with this endless stream of bland, bombastic shooters.

5 and 6 are the only Resident Evil games I didn't buy out of the entire main series. I don't need to tell you why.
Irishguy95  +   1189d ago
Lucky you, I risked 50€ on RE5.
GreenRanger  +   1190d ago
I'm just going to rent RE7 if it's not a survival horror zombie fest with zombies and survival horror.

Resident Evil 6 has been successful.

medziarz  +   1190d ago
I think the next Resi will have go back to slower paced unforgiving survival, which is good, let's hope Capcom realizes that

This was the second best RE to RE5... It had some improvements, though.
Feldman9000  +   1189d ago
It is successful, it's the biggest grossing Resident Evil of all time. It's worth it just for Leon's campaign. I haven't gotten to the others yet, but this game is good so far. People trashing it just to trash it.
