Just shows you what reviewers/pundits know what they're talking about all the time.... Not!

The game is garbage, my friends love it but they don't play many games so their easily amused. I played it and it a very poor shooter.

It only shows how irrelevant they are , be it for a good or bad game

Just goes to show what the majority will buy of the most generic (no, no, that's much too generous....POORLY MADE) of shooter with a brand name attached to it.

Indeed. And in fact it just goes to show that what the critics like and what the potential buyers like rarely meet.

People bought it because its got the words resident evil on the box lets be honest here. The sames been happening for years with other games I won't mention on here without being flamed lol.

I wonder what sales would be if the game DIDN'T have the Resident Evil name.......
stuntman_mike  +   1182d ago
i thought it was a PS2 game when i booted it up pretty poor all round really.

i just dont know about the gaming industry anymore
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1182d ago
I think it's this generation of gamers themselves that should be put in question because companies can only go in the direction they allow them too.....

This is what the people want, despite what a few on N4G say.

Like it or not.

1 of 6 friends on my list played it after the first week. The one that still plays really enjoys it, but the others thought it was pretty bad. I'd surely try this one and Ninja Gaiden 3 from GameFly before I considered a purchase.

Across three different systems? How is this this good? If it was on a single system I understand but all you could sell is two million from three different systems? Also does this include the people who sent it back to the store when they realized what crap it was? Unlikely. Which is why I say time and time again not to rely on sales. No one is going to add returns to their sales. They could have sold 2 million and half of that returned to the store but Capcom wouldn't tell you that.

Capcom would still have made the money off of the 2 million copies sold. Doesn't matter if people returned the game. FYI when you open the game you can't return it anyways. You can only trade it in.

As long it's popular now, gameplay don't matter to them.
kabala  +   1182d ago
@blackburn 10 I have not played the game so I could not tell you if it's good or bad. What you said about returns is true but one can say that about every game made.

This terrible game sell 2 mil whilst Dark Souls only sells 1.1 mil. Does that seem right to you?
ShaunCameron  +   1182d ago
Dark Souls should have been a PS3 exclusive. It didn't stand much of a chance with the XBox 360 crowd.
nano88  +   1182d ago
2 million angry fans lol
Sevir  +   1182d ago
2 million people rushed out to by a crap game with the name
Resident evil, thinking it was gonna be good. Capcom made their money durga this trash.... I honestly have to question gamers. Can't they recognize rushed upolished games like this and just ignore them?

Meanwhile, Portal 2, a fantastic game, is sitting at 4 million sold a YEAR after being released. Black Ops 2 will outsell Portal 2 in two days tops. Today's gaming market is terrible.
ShaunCameron  +   1182d ago
Not exactly. Portal 2 for all of its fantasticness sold as much as it could have sold due to its rather moderate at best level of appeal/sales potential.

<Today's gaming market is terrible.>

No more terrible than previous generations. Okami? Beyond Good & Evil? Viewtiful Joe? Klonoa: Door To Phantomile? Psychonauts? Jade Empire? And plenty others. Sales-wise, Portal 2 fared better than most of the games I just listed.

I know Dark Souls isn't a shooter so don't bite my head off, I'm simply trying to understand how this below average shooter sold more than a game that owns it on every level.
