Slant Six and Capcom should be rubbing their hands with joy as their recently released Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City has likely hit a benchmark many would have thought not possible.

Lol, looks like Slant Six had the last laugh.

Its sad... im sure lots of kids bought the game... even though the games not for kids. But who else would be stupid enough to buy it. Its got resident evil in the title.. only reason people bought it.

Most games are made on the super cheap and one million across 3 platforms is easy money for the Publishers and here's how

Most games cost $8 to $24 million to Develop and Advertise. You average B or C level multiplat is $8M while Big budget titles like Killzone 2, Halo Reach, GTAIV go higher than $20m and require over 2m in sales to profit!

Now the Publishers sales each copy of the game to BestBuy, GameStop, Walmart, Target, etc for $15 to $20 bucks a piece.......THEN those stores sale them to consumers for $60!

So you take 1m X $20 = $20m - $8m (Dev cost) = $12m Profit for Capcom!

If Operation Raccoon City does Halo numbers then i'm sure Slant Six will get a Bonus but as of right now they already got paid and now they can say they developed a million unit seller.

This will bode well for the rumors of Slant Six developing Battlefront III!! (Too bad cause i would love to see BFIII on the Frostbite 2)

How the HELL did that happen??? Am I the only one that though this game was TERRIBLE...worst game I ever rented...I felt like such a fool playing that game...some of you gamers....YA the reason terrible games like this get sequels.

DrPepper1556d ago

worst game i ever rented was scarface: The world is yours.

Bleucrunch1556d ago

lmao yea that was had a lot of potential...I believe that was an activitision title before they blew up and started committing the COD down our throats. Terrible game.

kamanashi1556d ago

I wouldn't say it was terrible. Just not very good. Terrible is like, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing or Daikatana. RE:ORC is just an average third person shooter.

AllroundGamer1556d ago

lol 6 out of those naive 1 million blind gamers disagree with you :D i think almost all of those people never played any game before or are playing only mobile phone games :)))

Bleucrunch1556d ago

now THAT I can agree with Bro....LOL

bunt-custardly1556d ago

1 million isn't the same sort of benchmark it used to be so did Capcom make a profit?

zielocz3k1556d ago

it's a horrible RE game (it's more Socom with Zombies than Resident Evil) but i had fun playing campaign and multiplayer with friends :)

Hicken1556d ago

I feel like it was pretty good at what it was trying to do, but it failed at being what people THOUGHT it would be.

blackburn101556d ago

Wow, 1 million in sales across two consoles and the PC in over a month? Yeah I am sure they are jumping for joy *rolls eyes*. And I am guessing that doesn't even cover the amount of returns to the stores.

Kurylo3d1556d ago

when a game live devil may cry sells 4 or 5 million in its lifetime.. id ay thats pretty good.
