    Default Resident Evil: ORC - 1.7 million units sold


    Capcom has released their latest financial report announcing that ORC is a million seller with 1.7 million units sold in NA and EU. The 250K units sold in Japan during the first week don't count in this fiscal report.

    Looks like they'll hit the 2 million goal. Well done to them.

    Make more of them Capcom... Oh, you will anyways.

    So when is Capcom going to bundle together the sales numbers of RE4 like they did with RE5? If they did, then more people that have a liking for the new direction the franchise has taken, will be able to point to that chart and say: "see? action-shooters-horror are better than survival-horror".

    Yet somehow, Capcom is still not happy with their numbers... "sluggish" they said. They still want MOAR revenue. Makes $en$e.

    This is... pretty depressing. :| Hoping that Slant Six never touches the RE brand again, but now they have drive to do it.

    Can we get an exact number - split into two categories; Actual units shipped and units shipped to Smiley?

    Ahem... look, Capcom obviously needs the money. What they did with ORC is no different from what Ubisoft did when they sold those games targeting casuals. That company used the mulah they made with those type of games to eventually fund their core game efforts.

    So it's perfectly fine that ORC sold well... because the game is basically a sign of the times that we live in.

    Maybe down the line, shooter/action games will stop being the top genre and who knows... maybe dating-sim games will be the next big thing.

    I can confirm that. They're irrelevant.

    Outside of Japan, I assume you mean.

    Dating sims are still the "next big thing" in Japan.

    That's what I meant... shooters and action games are all the rage here at the moment. Shit gotta stop someday.

    Dating sims will probably never be a hit here, though. Dateless wonders seem to be more prevalent in Japan.

    But maybe a game where you can get characters to "connect" with each other. And maybe allow you to get beyond that platonic nonsense.

    Actually, the title of that piece is: "Mama & Papa"

    That's because it is.

    Arsebiscuits.

    I generally put a lot of trust into Capcom's numbers but this total, which doesn't include Japan, somehow doesn't even match the tracking of what we do have officially from the US and UK alone. I somehow doubt elsewhere in the world the game has sold more than 500,000 other copies. If it has...



    ...may god have mercy on us all..
