“Monster Hunter: World has sold 11.9 million copies
Resident Evil 5 has sold 11 million copies across all SKUs
Resident Evil 6 has sold 8.8 million copies across all SKUs
Resident Evil 4 has sold 7.4 million copies across all SKUs
Resident Evil 7: biohazard has sold 6.1 million copies
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate has sold three million copies
Street Fighter V has sold 2.9 million copies”

Nice numbers all around

However Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite selling 1.3 million still seems underwhelming especially in comparison Injustice 2 sales. Even a new IP like Arms somehow sold more even when it was on only one platform compared to the storied MvC’s latest installment

Resident Evil 5 and 6 sold more than 4 and 7!? Gross.

pyroxxx820d ago

RE5 is decent and re7 has been out for 2-3 years, but I agree. 4 selling less than 5 and 6 is especially strange,.. I've bought it like 4-5 times lol.

Heavenly King820d ago

RE5 is actually really cool. With RE6 they tried to re-invent the wheel with the "3rd person action" genre and they made the wheel octagonal instead. LOL

Lore819d ago

5 sold so well due to co-op. If they make RE8 play like RE2 but can play with a friend it will sell even better in my opinion.

Operation Raccoon City also outsold Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2. Raccoon City was a terrible game, it's disheartening to see it outsell a classic like Devil May Cry.

kevnb819d ago (Edited 819d ago )

5 was a killer co op game, people bought 6 hoping for the same. Also sales for a sequel often rely on the previous entry.

RE5 & RE6 have widely been known to be Capcom’s best selling games for the longest time. Why are you acting surprised?

Monster Hunter: World is notable among various other things to be the one game that proved to be more successful than them however.

Bleucrunch819d ago

that is your opinion...I love RE, but 5 was ok , 6 I didn't even play past the first hour...4 was a game changer and the BEST one thus far. 7 was meh.

PhoenixUp819d ago

How is it an opinion that RE5 & RE6 were Capcom’s best selling games? Numbers aren’t opinions they’re pure facts.

Vandamme21820d ago

Oh wow Street Fighter 5 sold 2.9 million. Now give me Street Fighter 6.

solideagle820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

SF IV sold 3.4 and SFV sold 2.9. not bad for an exculsive, I thought SF IV was around 5+ million.

I thought Devil May Cry was 5 million+ but apparently none of DMC reached 5M. :O

kevnb819d ago

It’s on two platforms, how is it exclusive? It wouldn’t have sold very much on Xbox anyway.

IamTylerDurden1819d ago

I love how certain people bashed SFV claiming it was an epic flop. In reality SFV sold decently at around 3 million units thus far. Dead Rising 4 truly was a flop at a cool 1.0 million. Jus sayin..

HeisenbergX820d ago (Edited 820d ago )

RE5 and 6 sold that much .. jesus

We should be glad we even got RE7 and RE2 Remake and got Capcom to return RE franchise to it's roots !

FallenAngel1984820d ago

Both Resident Evil: Revelations titles returned to the series roots before RE7

HeisenbergX820d ago

yeah kind of but not really

CorndogBurglar820d ago

No. Not really. They were steps in a better direction for sure. But they still didn't feel quite right.

Heavenly King820d ago

They sold like crap so nope. Turning of tides is made with money (corporate speaking). so no money, no change.

TricksterArrow819d ago

Jessica, Quint, Keith and Raymond as well as the plot of "become a terrrorist to get funding against terrorism" (and I'm not even gonna start on the Orochimaru-mind-swap-with-pris oner-from-the-island plotline from Revelations 2) is horrible. 7 is the one that should take all the glory, and Remake 2 for refining it.

It's utterly disappointing to see RE6 as Capcom's third best selling game all-time. Do people just buy any that's shoved in their face? Market a turd enough and i guess it'll sell..

Neonridr819d ago

why is it that one of the worst versions of Resident Evil sold the most? :P

Guess it was all the fans of 4 who were suckered into the next entry.

chris235819d ago

mh world only 12 million? what a huge disappointment. i am talking about the gamers who ignored this masterpiece.
