Capcom has published its sales target for upcoming titles. Resident Evil 5 sales are expected to reach 2.3 million units.
will have such high sales figures. Maybe they are relying on old school fans too much.
Actually, I thought there estimates for Bionic Commando and Re5 were low! I think that BC will easily sell over 1M on both consoles, and RE5 will probably do 3-3.5M combined on both consoles. I did think that the projections for SFIV was too high though. I know that the series has a large fan base... but I don't think the mainstream will be drawn to it.
I agree some of the estimates were low. I expect Bionic Commando and Dead Rising to sell around their targets (as long as Bionic Commando is entertaining it will meet it's target). But I expect SF4 to sell at least 2.5 mil and Resident Evil 5 to sell at least 3.5 mil. Capcom should make over half a billion off these games.
Im actually more excited about RE5 than FF13
I think that Resident Evil 5 will sell at least 3 million units, and street fighter at least 2 million, but i dont think that Bionic Commando will sell that much, i think that it will sell 1 million
will sell more than 3 million.Its multiplat plus the install base for PS3 and 360 are going to be even bigger. I really cant wait for RE5.Those e3 tralers were awsome. edit : do I have a disagree gang tracking me or what ? what is there to disagree about in my post ? edit 2 :@ceeduyba9, you know what ? I edited my post and 2 seconds later your post popped up.I agree with you , thres somthing "fishy" going on.
It seems that you are constantly being abused by the disagree bandits.
not that im disagreeing with you lachance but it may be because you opened several new accoutnts after reachin 1 bubble, and that annoys some people and disagree with you whenever possible. like i said im not of of them i only disagree when i reply.
This is only my 2nd account. I joined n4g in october last year and since november last year or something like that I only had 2 bubbles.Without saying anything over the top that day my account went from 5 to 2 bubbles.I I know that sometimes fanboys from both sides get together to rip off someones bubbles.I even got a "confirmation" of those doings from a well "respected" guy on N4G who is Sony biaised.Not going to reveal his name because I promised not to. I was just waiting to get to 1 bubble to get a new account.It took a bit longer than I was hoping but I finaly got to one bubble so I created a new account a couple of days ago. Now I got a disagree gang , take away bubble gang that disagrees with me even when I say something as banal as "This game is huge" or "I like that"
I think RE5 will do at least 3.5 Million.
should sell more than that easily.
That would be less than half of MGS4 has sold yet (5mio, right? Anybody has more recent numbers?). I doubt that, because 1) it has a huge fanbase everywhere and 2) it's multiplat.
5 million, wishfull thinking! It has only sold 2.66 million, check vgchartz.
For a split second, I thought you meant I should check VGChartz. HaHa! Oh... you really think they are a reliable source?
best joke of the day amigo,best joke of the day.
With the MGS4 PS3 bundles, i cant tell u the number but its increasing fast.
The 2.66M does not include bundles... so yea, it probably is near 5M, or at least 4M. But it also probably wouldn't have sold quite as much w/o the bundle.
Yeah, I guess I should go with numbers someone made up to support their comment rather than go with a non-biased sales tracking site. They must be getting paid off for what I'm not sure.
RE5 will sell way more then 2.3 million thats fact
Day 1 for me. I'm getting the PS3 version since that's all I obviously have, but this being available for 360 now as well will only help bolster sales. I'm guessing RE5 will shift between 3-5 million units.
its not a day one for me but if it gets good reviews over the first couple weeks i might just get it. I think Capcom is showing its hand a bit here! They might know its nothing new and what they tried to do new is nothing to be pumped about!
DMC4 was expected to sell 1.8 million, and exceeded that...
then it will go up to 3.9 million
LOL! thats the funniest thing ive ever heard! Hardcore games dont sell worth crap on the Wii, hell it might even make some people not even buy it! Just look at their predictions on Dead Rising, and yet theres 30 million Wii's out there!
Actually no.... their projections for their Wii game is only .5M. Casual games are the only ones that sell reasonably well on the Wii.
Resident Evil 4 Wii edition has sold almost 2 million copies. That's pretty good for a last gen port... It's also one of the reasons Capcom's making a Dead Rising title for the Wii.
RE will probably sell more than 2.3 million units seeing as the 4th game received such critical acclaim.
I couldn't have said it better myself
Although RE4 was completely new this doesnt have many new gameplay features from the comparisions people are making about it.Most RE games do fairly well though selling between 2-5 million(5 million being RE 2),and those sale figures are for america alone.
I think RE5 will much more than this... and I think the Dead Rising for the Wii will sell almost 1 million...
i will buy re5, it will be my first re game.
Man, you've missed out. Some of the best games from past generations. If you have bc compatible PS3 or a PS2 (or Gamecube even), I'd definitely suggest going back to play the previous RE games. RE 4 especially if you want to get an idea of what 5 will be like. If you can get ahold of them, I'd check out these games: Resident Evil 0 (Gamecube) Resdient Evil 1 (PS1 or Gamecube remake if you can) RE 2,3 (PS1 or Gamecube) RE Code Veronica (PS2 or Dreamcast) RE 4 (Wii, PS2, Gamecube) Stay away from the shooting types of RE games, though. They aren't very good. Although the Wii Umbrella Chronicles is a fun multiplayer game.
naaa a hell lot more den that!! more like 4-5 mil
They dont even bother rounding it up or anything. Just 2.3 million. Yeah, pretty stupid
i think it will sell double that
I think Capcom will be pleasantly surprised when these games release. RE 5 will easily top those predictions as well as Street Fighter 4. And that's just based on these games being multiplatform. Bionic Commando seems fair. I'm sure they can hit that.
I hope so both of those games need to make come backs!
If it's lucky it'll sell 2.3 million. I, personally, see people renting this one from BB or Gamefly and or buying it used after they play the demo. It is Resident Evil 4 with HD graphics. Same texture work and animations even. It's a shame, really. Edit to idiot below: You really sound like an idiot. It's getting old and tired by now, though. It's funny how everyone is slowly realizing I'm not Gamesblow, then there are hand pounders like yourself. Oh, well. As I said, it's so painfully obvious I am not Gamesblow, but lets have fun with the notion. Makes for redunant forum talk, jerk spurt.
Maybe there is some truth. After all, no one is more of an expert on sounding like an idiot. He wrote the book, "Idiots for idiots"
You seriously don't even play video games. Why do you waste your time here making up bullshit when no one takes what you say into consideration. Speaking of redundant you're the must redundant person out there. Seriously get a life, get a hobby, get a job, and stop living off your parents you waste of space.
simply for one console or for all consoles it is coming out on? It seems a little low to me considering it is resident evil after all and many people are still waiting for this installment.
I think it will sell more than that.
one of those 2.3 million. Got mine pre ordered already. Easily GoTY 09 for me!
Yes cant wait to kill thoses filthy dirty poor diseased african zombies! Plus this game will be better than mgs4 and look better too. But mgs4 is awesome,too!
No way, it will easily be twice as much I reckon, MGS4 only hit around 2million worldwide, now considering many PS3 owners I would say perhaps the majority that bought MGS 4 but then given the absolute huge 360 userbase it will sell at least around twice as much.
I'll be one of those people. Resident Evil = my favourite game series of all time.
