          RE5 reaches 6 million sales.
          RE6 ships an extra 300k to reach 4.8m
          ORC reaches 2.2m
          Revelations still not reached 1m so doesn't chart...

          • Capcom once again confirms that RE6 underperformed:

            "In the Digital Contents business, which constitutes our core competence, the flagship title "Resident Evil 6" (for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360), despite recording brisk sales when it debuted, subsequently lost its momentum, resulting in the failure to achieve planned sales and fulfill its role as a driver of sales expansion".

            • Capcom is still puzzled by Resident Evil 6 selling below expectations. Believes the game could've been a victim of inadequate marketing and promotion.

              "We are currently analyzing the causes, which involve our internal development operations and sales operations. We have not yet reached a clear conclusion. We believe that global sales of 5 million units are proof that this is a popular title," Capcom said.

              "However, we believe that the new challenges we tackled at the development stage were unable to sufficiently appeal to users.

              In addition, we believe there was inadequate organizational collaboration across our entire company with regard to marketing, promotions, the creation of plans and other activities," the company added.

              "We will have to examine these results from several perspectives. We will reexamine our internal operating frameworks in order to identify areas that need to be improved concerning development as well as sales and administrative operations."

              • ^Just FYI, they say right there that their internal development operations are also at fault. Then they say it again in the last sentence. They're not pinning it on marketing and promotion.

                  From the source's headline:

                  Publisher says development "challenges" and poor efforts in marketing and promotion led to latest game coming up short.
                  So don't shoot the messenger. Besides, the quote does puts the blame on: "inadequate organizational collaboration across our entire company with regard to marketing, promotions"

                  Of course we all have our own opinions. You have your own, which denies what the source claims, but that's something for the RE6 topic.

                    Lol! Lets blame the marketing even though this game was plastered all over the internet, tv, game shops and even radio.

                              • Resident Evil: Revelations HD gets 3 new weapons for campaign and Raid mode

                                Gamers who buy the game early will receive a special DLC pack for free as a reward. Said pack includes 3 new weapons for use in both campaign and Raid modes.

                                The weapons are:

                                ■ Samurai Edge “Jill Model”






                                ■ Government “Parker Model”






                                ■ G18 “Jessica Model”





                                These 3 weapons will also be available as paid DLC on a later date.

                                Sources also confirm that there will be more than 10 characters to play as in Raid mode. That we already knew.
