Resident Evil Village has just surpassed 8 million units sold

Capcom Dev 1 on Twitter: "Resident Evil Village has just surpassed 8 million units sold! We owe this to all of our amazing fans. Thank you so much!"

I'd imagine it got a nice belated boost thanks to PSVR2. Even the developers recognise it's the definitive way to play Resident Evil. It's incredible - quite possibly the best VR game to date.

darkrider117d ago

Amazing number for a great game. Something that's always happens. When a game is good it sells millions and makes huge profits. There no spin possible

Kakashi Hatake117d ago

Well deserved! An amazing entry.

S2Killinit117d ago

That VR version though. Superb. But hella scary

Solitariussaint117d ago

Thanks Capcom, your VR support is outstanding!

Why anyone would pay that to play something on a phone is beyond me.

VenomUK3d ago

Because people may want to play the game and not everybody has a dedicated console. Give it around seven years when everyone in India or the African nations has a phone that can run games like these and then publishers will be laughing.

The defunct console manufacturers like Xbox and PlayStation not so much.

Kakashi Hatake3d ago

If they have interest in a game that requires this much dedication, chances are they have a console.

Knightofelemia3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Do you even know what the word defunct even means?

No longer existing or functioning.

Something like a Betamax, laserdisc, VHS, rotary phone, 8 track those are defunct. A company that is no longer around is defunct.

Xbox and Playstation still seem to be existing and functioning to me.

You also have to remember some parts of Africa and India people are poor so getting an iphone no matter what number it is would be a luxury. And most likely sold off to feed themselves or their family. Gaming in some parts of the world is a luxury whether a console or on a crappy cellphone. Owning a cellphone is also a luxury in some parts of the world as well.

So the average mobile gamer has a controller?

CobraKai2d ago

Ah. So the fate of console gaming lies in the hands of India and Africa. Mind blown 🤯

I don't know if these games support touch screen controls I think you need a controller of some form to play it.

If I was commuting for work and owned this phones I'd probably pick it this and a few other games / controller while waiting for the switch 2.

Alexdrew1233d ago

From seeing previews of it running it does have touch controls but the “touch controls” are literally just the buttons of a controller spread randomly around across the screen so they suck

Tacoboto3d ago

If mobile gaming is to evolve beyond F2P MTX crap, someone has to start somewhere.

Delivering two of the best and most-detailed Resident Evil games on mobile without making "Mobile" or "Lite" versions would of course cost higher than expected.

Also, Village and 4 are cross device apps; Village released separately on MacOS but is a single purchase for iPhone and iPad, and RE4 is a single purchase across all three Apple OSes. You're not stuck to just a phone

EvertonFC2d ago

The screens always been to small on mobile for me, tried batman Arkham, driveclub and puppeteer on a 5”2 screen size and it's impossible.

Shalnark3d ago

They are targeting the normie demograph.. normies = easy $$$
Capcom disgusts more than Konami their greed reached a new level

I assume cause re4 is a newer game while village has been out for a few years generally

Kakashi Hatake3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Sorry, phone batteries take up enough with internet, steaming, and messaging. Don't need to degrade the battery further with dedicated games I could be playing in higher quality on console /big screen TV. Phones games are for passing time in lobbies, during travel, or down time at work.

Profchaos3d ago

That's my major concern it's one thing to take a switch traveling if it runs out of batteries it's not a big deal but my phone is also my wallet , license, navigation, authenticator, not to mention the thing I use to contact people.so running out of battery on that is far more of a problem than a dedicated consoles running out of battery

CrimsonWing693d ago

Or remote play it if you already own it.

I’m sorry, but there’s no way in hell I’m paying $40 to play a game on my phone.

goldwyncq3d ago

Well, you're obviously not the target audience for this but a significant number of people, mostly in Asian countries, do their gaming exclusively on phones, so this is a nice gesture.

ravens523d ago

You can hook your phone up to your TV and play that way via controller. I'm never replacing my console with a phone unless is a ps console-phone. But it's cool.

Shalnark3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

This company greediness has reached a new level on smartphone market and people are cheering them up, clown world

VersusDMC3d ago

How is it greedy?

It runs as good as the ps4 version. It will look better and run better than switch games that cost 60. And has a bigger screen than the switch lite.

And if you want buttons there will be several attachment options with different prices.

Just because peggle is under 20$ it doesn't mean every game has to be under 20$...
