With huge sales already and in the face of many not so favorable reviews. Resident Evil 6 as an average game according to some is selling well.
Cool story Bro
Screw that! :@ Idiots will keep making them Action oriented crappy RE titles and more idiots will keep buying that.
Why is someone an idiot because they like it and you don't?
Its just more justification to keep making streamlined sequels.i wouldnt care if they made these money makers and then use profits to make new ips like dragons dogma.
In the end, it's all about sales. If more these "idiots" have money and are willing to buy a game than a cynical, jaded, "smart" gamer then guess what? Companies will continue to make games for the "idiots." Money talks and love or hate RE6, it sold a lot of copies so you can bet that RE7 and onward will be follow the path of RE6. Sadly, your only option is to not buy the game. But even if you don't, so what, because millions of "idiots" will. In short, you don't matter. That is the truth. Harsh as hell but the truth.
Is 3 million alot for the amount of time that has passed, versus prior sales of Re games in about the same time span that 6 has been out? In the end, that is what will make Capcom pay attentention....$$$
Well thats this gen's story bad games high sells Good games low sells
No, It's brand recognition that sells. You can make any shooter and call it Call of Duty and it will sell millions on day 1. If Black Ops 2 wasn't called Call of Duty but something like......I don't know....Future of War or something, people wouldn't even care about it as much.
Not entirely true, if you recall Halo use to be the top FPS game. Then this no name title called Call of Duty came along and knocked Halo down. I remember when CoD1 was first released in the same month as Halo and everyone said it was being sent out to die. Now look at how much things have changed. Brand matters, after all, Halo still sells well, but ultimately the game has to be solid. RE6 is a solid Action game, not a survival horror game, but an Action game. It's a solid Action game and it has a quality Brand name that has been made very popular because of the movies everyone loves to hate.
No. It's brand recognition and/or promotion that resonates with its intended audience that sells. Quality is largely subjective.
is the same with diablo 3, extremely bad game that sell on name brand only.
I wouldn't say a bad game, but more of a Diablo Lite compared to the others. It felt like they were catering too much to WoW and Torchlight fans than the original Diablo fanbase (with a premium price to top it off). Some of it is questionable but I still enjoy it even with some of its water downed features.
That´s why Capcom don´t change the game since RE4. And my hopes of a horror RE goes to the bottom sea.
It makes me wonder how a horror oriented RE game would sell if it received as much attention as RE5 and RE6 did. I mean, Capcom have flat-out said that horror games don't sell well any more... But have they even bothered to try? Resident Evil Revelations was never going to sell as well as a main RE title because it was on 3DS, and the on-rails arcade-style RE games don't really appeal to this generation of gamers anymore. But if Capcom made RE7 a solely horror-oriented game, put it on PS3 and 360, gave it as much advertising as RE5/RE6 have received...then it would probably sell just as well as the action-oriented RE games. I'd be willing to wager that a lot of their popularity has to do with the ridiculously large marketing scheme put behind the games, rather than whether or not they are genuinely quality titles.
Totally agree with you. But I think they will not change unless the game don´t sell well, and judging by the article, that will not going to happen. And of course a horror RE would sell as many as actual RE titles. Actually, they use the name Resident Evil and a large marketing to sell this game.
They should have just made a HD port(Disagrees incoming for using the word 'Port') of RE:Revelations.It was much better than this junk.I swear it even looked better.
Imma friggin psychic!!
Well RE 2 sold really well too and that was only the second game in the series. edit--yeah Im not sure if all the other versions ever sold well but im sure it sold alot on PSN too because I know I lost my disks and re-bought all RE 1-3 on psn because I loved them so im sure others did as well. SO your number plus the other versions and possibly alot more on PSN could have alot of sales for RE 2.
5.96 million to be exact and that's on Playstation alone....
that confirms a RES7 that will look and play just like this one.
I know a lot of people here didn't like RE6, but obviously a lot of gamers did like it, myself included. I didn't think it was the best game in the series, but how many times could they have a Resident Evil game where they explore a mansion and solve puzzles? On the plus side, its good to see a game actually sell, we've had months and months of negative stories on game sales and its nice to see an end to that trend. -I'm Emperor Obama, and I approve this message.
Did you saw any mansion or focus on puzzle solving in any Dead Space game? And yet, it's a much better game than Resident Evil 5 and 6 - and that's because it's atmosphere and focus on horror. It's being said over and over again in every Resident Evil article in here: it doesn't need to go back to outdated controls or fixed cameras, as long as it can remain scary and atmospheric. It just needs a better balance instead of going full action michael-bay style. Resident Evil 4 is seen as one of the best entrys in the franchise and it have no mansion or focus on puzzle solving either...
I was agreeing with you until you say RE4 was "one of the best entries in the franchise". The real RE games died justly in the RE4 (even that was a good game). You can´t say that game that zombies drops "gold" and money right after they die and you can upgrade and buy weapons is a horror game.
@JAM_brz I've never said it was one of the best entries, I've said it was seen as such. And even though I don't exactly agree with this view (I like 2 and Code Veronica better), I can totally understand and respect it for what it is: the first necessary modern take on resident evil. It was not yet what it should be, but it did had potential to evolve the series in a good direction. It had a bigger focus on action than last games but it was always tense, eeire and very atmospheric. It was a solitary ride to the end, and (to some extent) you'd still had to keep an eye on inventory space and ammunition. With a few adjustments after taking fan feedback into account (Las Plagas had to go!), I could really see it turning into something really special. Unfortunately, all that RE4 could accomplish was to inspire something really special - dead space. Oh and off-topic: sempre bom ver br por aqui! :)
well i hope the resident evil's creator new game zwei does even better
Best Selling Game 2012?
nope that will go to black sucks 2 then assassins creed 3 halo 4
