Seems like a good start, digital will also contribute and psvr will do a lot for this

Didn't they say they wanted 4M?

I beliebe so. I wouldnt doubt if it sold less then RE5 and 6 only because they are hitting a more niche market with this game and smaller installbase (at least with RE6 case). Either way it's RE and I cant wait to play on my VR

@roadkillers It will sell better than RE6.

It will easily hit its mark of 4 million before may. 2.5 million shipped, doesn't account for digital sales. Nor any PC sales (since they are all digital). One week on the market and it already surpassed 50% of the initial goal, without even take digital into account, doesn't take a genius to figure it out.
