As Resident Evil 6's sales falter, a wild Resident Evil 5 appears

Despite labelling the recently-released Resident Evil 6 a "failure", Capcom has still managed an increase its earnings for the nine-month period from April to December 2012.

How this happened might be cause for surprise. (Culture, PS3, Resident Evil 5, Xbox 360)

it's all because of Sheva. Trust me, Japanese are into Black chicks.

Lol I don't know about that but I liked it a BIT more than RE6 but eh both were okay to me.
aaron5829  +   539d ago
I loved RE5, 4 was amazing, but 3 was my favourite. But RE6, it just dont feel like a resident evil game... i dont feel tensed anymore, all i get from it was frustration upon frustration... swimming underwater, and stupid zombie chokes you, not once, but 3 times, Crawled out of spinning blades, another zombie comes at you... they all felt like cheap ways to make you lose your health bar. But after i got my magnum and unlimited magnum ammo, its payback time !

I only appreciate RE5 because it made the creation of 'Wesker Crows' possible...

I must look it up, but there was no damn PC version either which seems ass backwards if they doing ports.

I must look into this. I could of swore the PC version was coming.

Ewww gross. Besides Sheva has a Latino last name. Alomar is Latino.

Maybe they like men with steroid induced arms?

They must love John Cena.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   539d ago
Thats REALLY surprising, considering RE5 was awful.
cpayne93  +   538d ago
It may have lost the horror atmosphere from 4 but the gameplay wasn't even all that different. It was still a great game, an action game, but still a great game. 4 was just amazing though.
MooseyXTC  +   538d ago
RE5 is an AMAZING co-op game.
Managing your inventory alongside a partners while dealing with a TON of enemies, in a narrow hallway where you can't get to one-another and deliver that one type of ammo that only your partner can deliver, or that one last herb for you both to use, THAT'S where the "panic" comes into play.
Same as with having to manage Ashley and yourself in RE4.
They're only bad if you look at them in comparison to REmake.
But then again, every game is a few pegs below REmake.
clintagious650  +   539d ago
Well compared to RE6, RE5 was a way better game in my opinion.
Mikefizzled  +   539d ago
Any one else think that when Capcom announced sales targets they were overstretching themselves big time.
Dragons Dogma 10m Then downgraded a few rimes
Resident Evil 6 7m
Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City 2.5m
DmC Devil May Cry 2m
Lost Planet 3 1.4m
Baka-akaB  +   538d ago
They never announced 10 mil for Dragon's Dogma . It was clearly said as a joke in a joking tone by its director . The true estimate came way later , and the game didnt fall much short of it .

As usual "videogame journalism" shone brightly when quoting that multiple times

Lost Planet 3 isn't out yet do you mean lost planet 2?
Lord_Sloth  +   538d ago
He either means LP2 or LP1 sold 31.4 Million. XXXD
Mikefizzled  +   538d ago
No they released all the targeted figures at the same time its just Lost Planet 3 got delayed. Lost Planet 2 sold 1.5m in 2 and a half years so its got a chance.

That, and everyone misses Wesker.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   539d ago
Maybe the old Wesker but not the RE5 Wesker that went all matrix.
bryam1982  +   538d ago
Lmao thats how i call him too matrix wesker or neo wesker wtf capcom?
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   538d ago
Haha I know yeah. When I played it I was like uhhh why does he have super powers? and why is everyone flipping around in slow motion? did Wesker just dodge a bullet? are we seriously fighting in a volcano?! what have you done Capcom 0_0

He can dodge bullets and bend steel with his fists... but apparently Chris's body is much much harder than any known metal.

Chris punching the boulder...
_FantasmA_  +   538d ago
I may be in the minority but I never cared for Wesker. I'm glad he died cause I was getting tired of seeing him be behind everything and just magically appear anywhere Chris and Jill went.
Nerdmaster  +   538d ago
Oh, it's a Resident Evil 5 themed Pachinko machine, not the game itself. Now it makes more sense.
Blank  +   538d ago
Oh gosh right after I read this my first thought is "capcom will definetly not slow down the dlc BS"
Young_ART  +   538d ago
one thing I don't like about sales figures is that it's assumed that because a consumer bought the product, they liked it.

I'm almost certain a lot of those sales come from the game having "resident evil" in the title.
Black-Rock-Shooter  +   538d ago
I really like Resident Evil 5 it wasn't much of a survival horror game but at least it was a awesome action/punching rocks game but this is not really resident evil 5 its more of the tomb raider gambling games and people buying it are more for gambling.

Great Capcom is making a good bit of profit with the dlc as well don't see that going its going to be very annoying.
(T_T) my wallet crys.
MizTv  +   538d ago
I haven't played much capcom game as if late that I liked
FantasyStar  +   538d ago
I don't get what makes Pachinko so fun.
