ThisGenGaming says "The bomb of Dead Rising 4 continues to get worse as another quarter passes without it reaching 1 million copies, and keeping it's title for worst sold Dead Rising game in the main series."
A different studio developed this and they made too many changes. I liked the previous games but this didn't interest me.
Did start to feel like they were aiming to go in a very "Saints Row" direction. A lot about DR4 turned me off and I've been waiting for it to make the inevitable drop to $10 so I can at least quell my curiosity.
why bother funding a shitty game. the game is cracked
3 was the better game. DR4 is alright, it kinda drops off after you leave the Mall.
I think 3 was a drop from the original games but at least it didn't take pretty much everything away from Dead Rising that made it good. Dead Rising 4 was just terrible for everyone, fans and casuals who wanted to just kill zombies, even that sucked.
You leave the mall in like an hour lol...
That's their fault for not releasing it on PS4.
If this comes to the PS4 and does significantly better, then all that is is an example of when the Playstation audience were the biggest consumers of trash content. "Buh buh buh. They deserve this for not releasing on my little plastic box of choice!!!" Oh get a grip lol
The biggest buyers of trash are the Xbox One owners. You know, because Xbox One is garbage.
@Dog And trash comments get upvoted here on N4G all the time. Find a better personality. As for you, Korn An obviously intelligent comment from an equally intelligent person :)
It's mainly to do with the quality of the game not about its platforms. Strange that you ignored that
Kornholic--- so you would buy even if the game was trash? lol you must be thirsty for some thing to play use your money wisely dude don't buy every game that's released because i know once you find out it's trash then you are going to be the one that's pissed
Nah, man. Unlike Xbox One players, I've grown accustomed to quality games. Increasing the potential customer base by releasing Dead Rising 4 on the PS4, they would've easily sold well over a milliom copies.
As to their fault for not releasing SF5 on the Xbox 1. It makes sense to release SF5 on a console with the best online, and the greatest gamers. I mean, that was a no brainer!!
So you're saying that trash sells on PS4?
Wasn't it supposed to come to PS4?
You know what has crossed the million mark? The Last Guardian So is Dead Rising 4 ever going to be ported to PS4? How long is that timed exclusivity going to last?
I mean, who even wants Dead Rising 4 on PS4 anyway?
According to these comments...PS4 Fanboys. They want trash to play since there's nothing coming out until August
Read this article and have a chuckle. http://n4g.com/news/1993834...
As of June the last guardian has sold over a million units and that's not including digital. That article is almost a year old.
Well it should have passed the 1 mil Mark. Sony fans have been clamoring for that game for years add in the number of ps4's sold I hope it sold over 1mil. As for dr4 it was a mediocre game. No surprise at it's #s. Dr3 was better imo
No need. I doubt dead rising 4 will move to ps4. But if it does I sure as hell hope it doesnt sell so well considering its not really good. We'd be sending the companies the wrong message.
Only if there's a remake because the current one removed some of the aesthetics that makes Dead Rising Dead Rising.
The Last Guardian was an original work of art. cant compare it to the 4th version of an already repetitive game.
Worst in the franchise so deserves the worst sales. No sympathy for Capcom there. SFV.. I'm still waiting on Sagat...
Well, they need indeed to sell it on ps4 too :) i hope for a DR 3+4 collection
The reason it didn't sell well it's because it's objectively the worst entry in the franchise, as expressed by everyone that bought it. Releasing on PS4 as well would only give PS4 players the chance to buy a bad game, so sales wouldn't have increased by much at all
this is what happend when a game doesnt come out on the PS4.... A studio that goes exclusive will lose millions and millions.
Yet street fighter 5, the biggest fighting game franchise sits at 1.7 million sold in a year and a half, on the PS4 and PC A crappy game won't sell well. I loved DR3, so I bought DR4, was severely disappointed so I traded it in with out finishing it
Sf5 was like a dlc at full price! Gamers arent that stupid. It took months and months of update to get full content. This will be a good game to buy at christmas when they cut even more the price but never at launch
Dr4 was not good. I wished it was, because I love DR3, but 4, no.
Exclusive deals can end up being more profitable or simply a better deal at the time of development than going multiplat like with the tomb raider. Newsflash! some ps only games flop lol. Double newsflash! Not releasing on xbox can cause dev to mess out on millions of sold copies too! Dr4 was trash and deserved to sell like trash. Should be releasing on ps4 soon so enjoy. @digdreyer CD3 isnt out yet so we have 0 clue if its trash. But if it is than it deserves poor sells.
Everytime they made Frank West game they failed. 2nd and 3rd was the top.
DR 1 didnt fail, it's the highest rated game in the series.
Well it was the 1st game to introduce real fun zombie with alot to do and stupid ways to kill zombies and some open world so that was really something back then in Xbox 360 gen. Right now that is every Zombie game.
Capcom is to blame for this travesty
This is what happens when you shut down access to the most prominent platform. GASP it does not sell well. Who wouldathunkit?? I mean come on people this isn't rocket science.
Lol it's just a bad game, that's all there is to it. Or are you suggesting that you would have bought it on PS4 knowing that it was a bad game?
Perhaps Xbox gamers don't want crappy timed exclusives. It'd probably sell more if it was a real exclusive.
So you're saying that because the game is not exclusive to the Xbox 1, Xbox owners didn't buy it??
Terrible excuse. The majority of Xbox players aren't as petty as yourself.
😑 i dont think the majority on xbox gamers in life are petty sheep like the ppl you see here on n4g that will buy 💩 in a case simply cause its exclusive and swear up and down how great it is and buy more exclusives than they do multiplat in the name of being a fanboy console war warrior. We see a lot of ps fans on here like that but in the real world if it dont interest you, it dont interest you. It being exclusive isnt adding any more hype to a xbox owner/ps owner that arent console war fanboys.
That's because it's terrible. Lost its way. First game was great.
I loved this series, but im not going to lie - I didn't even know this game existed. Did they market it?
Even though I enjoyed it. I was hoping for a PS4 version. In fact I was expecting one. But with it doing so poorly do Capcom want to spend more money releasing it on PS4 and maybe the Switch?
I liked it but 3 was better imo.
Yet another example showing that this series isn't good and never has been. The first game sold well because it came out early in the 360's life cycle at a time when it had little competition.
DR 1 is still my favorite one, I remember buying my Xbox 360 just to play DR and GeOW, good times.
Not a fan of Dead Rising series but damn that sucks it seems as though the devs were trying to make a quality game with 4.
Everybody forget digital sale that ms dont show because of fanboy war
Aint no pc or xbox fan buying that crap lol. With all the zombie games out and coming who looked at dr4 and got hyped? Not 1 (not literally 1 but you get the point) The series is on a decline and it looked half as good as dr3. Tbh it looked like a dr3 dlc.
dead rising not selling over 1 million = new street fight v figures revealed? LOL XD "thisgengaming" rofl
Series should have died ages ago.
I think they should have take a longer break from DR3. This one felt rushed but then again that has been Capcom's MO this gen so far. Lots of underbaked, broken at release games.
This shouldn't have been timed exclusive. More platform is more coverage and potential. That, and this game is hardly GOTY material. Not even close. Such a let down after (what I thought was great) DR3.
Capcom made all the wrong decisions. *boots up Dead Rising 3 on Steam*
Well... it is worst Dead Rising ever, so... 1 million is a lot for so much crap.
Nothing sells on xbox anymore because it barely has any marketshare. Even major franchise's like tomb raider bomb on xbox.
it bombed because its the same shit over and over again. Zombie shit is starting to play itself out. Swing through tons of zombies to get from one point to another. Rinse and repeat
ARMS on Switch has already nearly outsold SFV in a months time. Pokken on Wii U sold better. Capcom really F'd this up
It's sad you have a single agree. Ultra street fighter 4 sold around 500,000 across all platforms. Super Street Fighter 4 sold around 300,000. Fighting games don't sell like they used to. Now look at Street Fighter V sales on just 2 platforms again and ask yourself how you have a single agree. Almost 2 million for a Fighter? In 2017? Good job Capcom.
There are too many zombie games, that's why the numbers are low. Stop making zombie games.
They made too many changes and it's a different fucking character voice..they shoulve use a different fucking character than..and change the story
I didn't even realise they made a Dead Rising 4. It sounds like it wasn't even on PS4, so it's no surprise it bombed.
not only thins but this game is set on a mall at christmas, christmas is over LOL
Sales aren't important. What's important is how many zombies have been killed since DR4 was released. /s
a game with a 4 behind the title doesn't sell well. surprise, surprise.
Dead rising sucks no matter what platform . Street fighter not doing well because everybody wants soul calibur 6
Dead rising 3 was one of my deciding reasons to pick xbox up over a ps4 on day 1. Dead rising 4 on the other hand never appealed to me.
That's kind of surprising. Must not have been very good.
