I hope it sells much more, so Capcom will realize that there is still market for real horror games. If it doesn't they will just keep doing shitty REs.

VG chartz: Resident Evil: 54.64 (Close, with digital might be on the nose) DMC: 13.53 (Overtracked) Street Fighter: 31.01 (Undertracked)

Itīs a good thing that Capcom is keeping a low sales prediction for Resident Evil Revelations. It seems that they didnīt spent much on doing those ports, so they donīt need to sell millions to get the necessary profit. Thatīs the way developers need to think from now on. A game that needs 4 or 5 million to give some profit is a risky investment, like the Square examples of Tomb Rider, Sleeping Dogs...

Only 1.2 million for 4 platforms? This could be the best 7th gen console Resident Evil to date, shame. Shame for Lost Planet 3 as well, 1 was so great!
