Well its shipped one million, but how many were actually sold? Anyway it's been doing well, so that's good for X1. Killzone and DR3 are the best selling exclusives

What does "1 Million shipped" even mean? Did they sell a Million?
IRetrouk  +   213d ago
It just means that overall retailers have paid for a million copies.

On VGChartz its at 800k, with digital sales, it may be 1 million, I doubt it but Forza 5 is actually the best selling XB1 exclusive at 950k units sold.

Yeah nobody can dis this,it's a success for Capcom at first since they do need to get back on their feet,and a success for Microsoft for having a good exclusive at launch.

Congrats to both!

And for Xbox fans,just ignore the fanboys & trolls(on all sides),they get more damage control when you don't react.

@Studio-YaMi I agree. Its good to see the exclusives do well on all 3 consoles. Ive not got this game yet but ill look to pickup This and Ryse at some point but at this moment I have too many games to get through and not enough time to get through them. Hate getting older lol.

I hope you know that shipped means sold for any company, now what that carrier sells is a different story.

Nice stealth trolling!

As for Dead Rising 3 shipping a million, not bad numbers. Congrats to Capcom.

That game is brilliantly fun, I've spend so much time just ripping around on my steam roller/ motorbike with flamethrower combo vehicle just plowing through hundred of zombies. Good job capcom vancouver

The key word today my friends is "shipped".
UncleGermrod  +   213d ago
once the units are shipped, capcom made their money. the rest is profit margin for the retailers. sure, it may not have reached 1 million consumers yet, but if they shipped that amount to date, it surely will. no need to be nit-picky and pessimistic.

"no need to be nit-picky and pessimistic"

Thats part of there "charm"

It's the same thing when Sonny announced they shipped 70 or 80 million consoles and that was fine.

Seems like the rules have changed since then and it must be overanalyzed how many were sold rather than shipped.

Double post for some reason.

they're also talking about retail versions only... digital sales are seemingly not counted.... surely digital sales would be easier to track than physicals, wonder why no-one has charted that yet

Dr3 is a really fun game and im glad they,ve achieved their sales target of 1m,i see the game doing another 1mill before the end of the year but its going to be hard with halo5, sunset oberdrive, watchdogs, mgs5,d4, quantum break, fable legends,titanfal and the other great games coming in this year. Good job capcom, good job..now bring us power stone.
xfear2diex  +   213d ago

TheGreatAndPowerful  +   213d ago

xfear2diex  +   212d ago

I've actually spent more time and enjoyed playing DR3 than I did KZ Shadow Fall. Yeah, I'm one of "those gamers" that bought both consoles and can give an impartial opinion about either console and it's games. DR3 is a blast.
kewlkat007  +   213d ago
Not bad..more Xbox One will be purchased and this is one of those games you get as a first game because well, it's just fun.
