Capcom has updated its mega-list of “Platinum Titles“—titles which have sold over one million units—providing various notable updates.
“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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
How is it an opinion that RE5 & RE6 were Capcom’s best selling games? Numbers aren’t opinions they’re pure facts.
Oh wow Street Fighter 5 sold 2.9 million. Now give me Street Fighter 6.
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
It’s on two platforms, how is it exclusive? It wouldn’t have sold very much on Xbox anyway.
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..
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 !
Both Resident Evil: Revelations titles returned to the series roots before RE7
yeah kind of but not really
No. Not really. They were steps in a better direction for sure. But they still didn't feel quite right.
They sold like crap so nope. Turning of tides is made with money (corporate speaking). so no money, no change.
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..
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.
mh world only 12 million? what a huge disappointment. i am talking about the gamers who ignored this masterpiece.
Those Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen numbers look off to me. Does it cover the game's sales on PC and PS4 as well? Cause to my knowledge, DD is actually Capcom's most successful release on PC. But regardless, it brings me joy to see it in that list, and I hope that the Switch release bumps those numbers even more and motivates Capcom to finally make DD2. DD is such an incredibly underrated game. It's actually my favorite game of the 7th generation of consoles, even over Dark Souls.
Dragon’s Dogma. Game was under appreciated imo. I’ve never heard of anybody playing the Online game that was released though
My thoughts. RE6 WAS THE THIRD BEST SELLING CAPCOM GAME EVER - The original release outsold the original releases of RE4, Okami, Megaman 3, Devil May Cry, and Dragon's Dogma combined. A single bad game outsold 5 good games combined. SFV SOLD AROUND 3 MILLION UNITS - For all the criticism and ire SFV drew in the beginning, it eventually built itself into a high quality game with respectable sales. Even if the season pass/DLC nonsense is still infuriating. DEAD RISING 4 SOLD 1.0 MIlLION UNITS - For all the talk about SFV selling poorly, Dead Rising 4 was the true flop. OKAMI & LOST PLANET 3 NOT CHARTING - Okami wasn't a hugely marketed AAA, but it was clearly a great game that received critical acclaim and a cult following. It's sad to see it fall short of a million. I'm aware that LP3 received mixed reviews, but i personally enjoyed the game immensely. The story and atmosphere were second to none, it's a shame that the game couldn't eke out a cool million. REMEMBER ME SELLING 1.2 MILLION - I realize the scores for Remember ME were somewhat hit n miss, but they weren't terrible and it was a beautiful looking AAA from the fairly talented devs who made Life is Strange. It deserved better sales. The visuals were excellent, the protagonist was slick and well played, Neo Paris was gorgeous albeit far too linear, and the rewind mechanic was wonderfully implemented and executed.
Zack and Wiki? Where is that number? Zack and Wiki 2 ...lets goooo!
I’m making some assumptions here, but kudos to Capcom for making such drastic changes to the RE franchise despite 6 selling so well.
