Resident Evil 2 has debuted at No.1 in the UK charts, more than 20 years since it last managed the feat.
Yeah I tried to buy at its literally sold out everywhere apart from game buts that £45 so ordered online for £35 hopefully get it on Tuesday. Can't wait to relive some old memories again.
I'm actually surprised that RE2 has debut to 17% lower sales that RE7. I wonder if it's becasue of the VR mode? But it wouldn't surprise me if RE2 does go on to sell much more that RE7. If I remember correctly CAPCOM were not happy with the sales of RE7.
RE7 came out on a Tuesday in the UK while RE2 came out on a Friday. It had less days tracked so that's probably why sales are lower.
Congrats Capcom and PS4 ( 76%sales)! Well done. Hope it sells like Monster Hunter World. PS4 is the best platform for 3rd party games.
Better than Switch for sure...
Sony's platform accounted for 74 per cent of the sales? So only 26% in sales sold on Xbox one?
Yeah that's pretty standard for Japanese games.
ehhhhhh Resident Evil is made in Japan but it isn't a japanese themed game. More western driven.
That is insane. I could understand if it was a Japanese rpg type game but this is Resident Evil!
I have to take my hat off to Capcom. I loved RE7 and now what they have done to RE2, one of my favorite games of all time, is very very good. If only Konami could make this with Silent Hill 2. Could Konami ever redeem themselves? I wish they would sell the franchise to Sony so they could bring it back.
Congrats Capcom. I haven’t played the game yet but RE2 look very promising. Also, it is crazy that 3 Nintendo titles are in the top 10.
And 74% were sold on PlayStation
“The data only includes physical game sales” “Xbox One had a good year all things considered. Hardware was up YoY thanks to the release of the Xbox One X. Software remains healthy and I really need to stress how large the digital shares are on Xbox compared to other platforms.” Zhuge https://www.resetera.com/th... i’m not saying it would be 50/50 or 60/40 but i’m sure those numbers would be closer if digital sales were included
0% on Switch.
Yeah I can see these sales going well. This games phenomenally well done. Capcom has really been doing good work. I actually look forward to their releases again.
I’m not surprised. RE2 is brilliant game!! Goty for me at the moment!!
