Resident Evil 5 : French sales

French website JeuxVideo writes:

"We obviously know that Resident Evil 5 is selling like hot cakes through the world, but GfK Institute permits us to discover more precisely about French sales of the software. Thus, we learn that 110,555 units of Resident Evil 5 have already been sold through the country, which represents the half of the overall number of available copies in France.

Without any surprise, the PS3 sells better with 62,040 units sold, front of the Xbox 360 with its 40,135 games. On PS3, it's about 5,000 collector editions that ended in the arms of bloody greedy gamers, while 3,200 gone to the 360. In overall, Resident Evil 5 generated €7.7 millions of benefits in France." (PS3, Resident Evil 5, Xbox 360)

why do 360 fans love getting caught up....
We know games don't get discontinued after one day of sales (lol). When these multiplatform companies release their figures in favor or equal for PS3, don't act surprised. Our systems work. :)

N4PS3G, if you want to make a statement, at least do your research SFIV and RE5 sell better in PS3 in UK. What a joke man.

If Resident Evil 5 can not even outsell the PS3 version than someone at Microsoft must have been drinking the Kool-Aid when they (Big M) said they will sell more Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360 than the PS3.

I think there is a numbers mix up
The 360 outsold the PS3 in Resident Evil 5 sales in the UK.

Microsoft could have made more sales.
All they had to do was release a cheese edition.
It would have sold through the roof.
Elven6  +   2139d ago
Or a special white flag edition, :p

Jokes aside, those are still solid sales all across.

^^^^ You are correct. it is why Sony isn't concerned. Add the US NPD figures to the Japanese sales figures for February and you will see why Sony is laughing. Then throw Europe - the largest gaming territory - on top of that pile and Sony is very comfortable to be lambasting MS. It is pure and simple fact why Greenberg is a complete and utter joke.
Elven6  +   2139d ago
Do NPD numbers also include Canada? Because their is no continent know as America ;) The territory of North America vs Europe would be a better comparison if Canada has any way of tracking data like NPD.
FarEastOrient  +   2139d ago
I thought Canada was a state in America... ^_^

Just kidding...

Obviously your glass is half empty. Otherwise, you wouldn't make brash statements and assert your opinion as fact. Traditionally, continental Europe is Sony territory. The UK is not. The UK has the second largest gaming revenue's outside of the US and not including China. France has the second largest gaming market although it pales to the UK. Get your facts straight. Sure, the PS3 sold more in France but the difference wasn't 2:1. I guarantee you would point that out. But nope, the 360 version sold 2/3 as well in the middle of "Sony country." Sony is laughing? Can I quote that for future use? FAIL.

Actually,they did an I.Q study in France and said. .
The french scored the lowest? But. . .that has nothing to do with the sales of Resi 5.

After that DEMO, from all the talks, I thought this game would Bomb

Enjoy.

French...
I wonder why all of the sudden all these Post about the small countries sales ......must be because Sony fanboys like to point out the 1st place finish of a multiplatform game on the PS3. Now where is the UK chart...How predictable. This is pathetic people.

France is a market as big as UK, both countries represent 45 to 50% of the European market. UK, France and Germany are probably the three countries the most influent in Europe, so no, those are not simple fanboy cry, unless you consider USA as the world.
