Good for them. Now please don't ruin RE7, I've only little hope left for the series.

MrSwankSinatra725d ago

The irony you have little hope but RE6 had a viral marketing campaign called "No Hope Left". Dude Resident Evil is dead there is literally no hope left for that series.

Bundi725d ago

Maybe it will come back as a zombie.

badboy776725d ago

Knack outsold Dead Rising 3.

Lightning Mr Bubbles725d ago

The only must have so far this gen in my opinion, and it's on XBOX One not PS4. Yet, I still bought a PS4 instead of an XBOX one, tough decision but I think I made the right choice. It still sucks though, not having Dead Rising 3.

Ck1x725d ago

RE needs a reboot!
It needs to get back to that eerie isolation horror.

Concertoine724d ago

@badboy
Knack was bundled in japan.

@badboy776
i don't see how Knack relevant to this article. Try Harder next time troll.

Resident evil as a series isn't dead. Just because they had a small stumble in RE6 doesn't automatically discredit the excellent work they did with RE 1-5. At least let them fail a few more times before you can credibly call the series completely dead.

1.2 million is good sales for dead rising considering the install base. Wow if knack sold better then i am shocked. Didn't expect anything beyond 500k realistically. Even if bundled in Japan i still consider that impressive. Its not like PS4 is lighting up Japan anyways

MrSwankSinatra724d ago (Edited 724d ago )

@bundi a zombie is a dead decaying human being, resident evil as a series is already dead and decaying, so in saying that RE is already a zombie

@sonarus A SMALL STUMBLE??? lol I think your being delusional if you honestly believe that. Ever since re4 resident evil as a series has progressively became worse and worse.

mikeslemonade724d ago (Edited 724d ago )

1. Dead Rising 3 is not a must have game. It's a broken up-res last gen game. They didn't even up the frame rate haha. It drops to 12 frames a second.

2. RE5 and RE6 has killed the series figuratively. The series is over the hill like Halo is. It's not dead, it will sell, but it will be mediocre to average.

Knushwood Butt724d ago

Knack was bundled in Japan, for about a month after launch. You can't get that bundle now.

avengers1978724d ago

To those who say knack was bundled in japan, does that mean TitanFall sales don't count cause it's still bundled with XB1, just curious.

OT: good for capcom, good for the series, I'm sure that game helped push a few XB1s

Concertoine724d ago

@avengers
Of course they do. So does Knack's.
Its just unfair to bundle a game that wasn't bundled to a game that was bundled with every console at launch in Japan. Are you saying it isn't?

avengers1978724d ago (Edited 724d ago )

@concertoine I'm saying that everyone counts bundled games as games sold, Nintendo, Sony, and MS, all do it.
And be honest with yourself Knack probably would have done good numbers in Japan anyway. The only reason it was bundled was to give the Japanese gamers something for making them wait for the PS4.

But you want a fair comparison KZ:SF outsold DR3, and Ryse combined

Concertoine724d ago (Edited 724d ago )

@avengers
Oops, excuse my flub. I meant to say its unfair to conpare a bundled game to a non bundled one. There was literally no other ps4 at the japanese launch other than the one bundled with Knack, so why would it be fair to compare a game standing on its own than one that everyone in Japan HAD to buy if they wanted a ps4. You think that's fair? Is you bringing up a completely different (and fair) comparison proof that you don't, but just don't care to admit it?
And yeah, those are impressive sales figures for KZ:SF, fully deserved too.

I know RE is ruined but it's far from dead
RE6 is the 3rd most selling game in capcom history.

ceedubya9725d ago

I actually enjoyed the game. I think the expectations of what a resident evil game should be hurt its acceptance more so than the actual game itself. The game was flawed, but fun, imo.

jc48573725d ago

Resident Revelations finally got 1 million?

insomnium2724d ago

I kinda enjoyed revelations on my PS3. My gosh Jill sure has a nice *ss.

Perjoss724d ago

I admire your stamina, most people gave up after RE4. Personally I liked 5 but I totally understand why most fans didn't like it.

WitWolfy724d ago

I loved RE 5, saying killing black people in Africa is racist is like getting mad by saying you killing Muslims in the middle east.

God I hate that race card crap.

If they have an ounce of respect for their fans then MAYBE RE7 will be somewhat decent.

They need a lot more profit boosts to improve their financial situation.

randomass171724d ago

Agreed. But thankfully Capcom hasn't done much to piss off fans lately. With any luck they'll actually buckle down and make a new Mega Man game.

christocolus725d ago

Good for them...hope they keep doing better.

XiSasukeUchiha725d ago

Hopefully, now Capcom has learn their mistakes, and RE7 will be perfect.

u got owned725d ago (Edited 725d ago )

I don't understand why cant they go back to the first Resident Evil Formula more horror/suspense less action/shoot everything in your path.

ScubaSteve1725d ago

Cause those games weren't scary snd tank controls

cfc78725d ago

Take no notice of ScubaSteve1 only thing that scares him is a mirror as for Resident Evil im in total agreement with you bring back the days when the name and the game actually made sense.

randomass171724d ago

@u got owned Honestly I hope they take steps to accommodate both kinds of RE fans. I like the older games but I loved RE4. That game was just good fun with a lot of creepy action. I want more of that.

rakentaja725d ago (Edited 725d ago )

Enjoyed the story co op with a friend but unfortunately the game is too easy .. even in Nightmare Mode. In Normal I didn't die once and in Nightmare just one time and even then, I forgot to look how much lives I have. Boss fights were ridiculous also.

Palitera725d ago (Edited 725d ago )

Agreed. Only played normal mode this far, but it is very very easy.

On the other hard, it is very very fun. I'm loving everything about this game. I'm also glad I waited for the patches to play it. The performance 100% smooth.
