I am very impressed with the sales, after all over the 800,000 units sold. I hope that Revelations seriously consider the next installment of the series on Nintendo platforms, they are a success... :D

Not bad for a rail shooter. In fact it's pretty good. The game is now at 0.76M and still sells over 2k/week during the low season. 1 million is not impossible.

@ Zechs - I'm very reluctant to say it did well. This is an exclusive Resident Evil game and a quality title yet its struggling to a million. A good chunk of these sales also came after price cuts. I just hope they were able to break even at worst.

Capcom was stupid into keeping this on-rails. Although Umbrella Chronicles got good sales, everyone was expecting a RE4-like game. That's why DC didn't follow the UC sales. Considering how much RE4 sold on Wii, it's illogical not consider to release a Wii version of RE5 or a RE4-like game. Besides of Monster Hunter Tri, Capcom is sounding anti-Wii biased.

These sales ain't bad. I don't see how this has disappointing sales. Also, i felt that this wasn't a quality game, maybe because i only played like 15 mins of it. I played it with a friend and we were just laughing how bad the game is. It just wasn't exciting.

As far as I can tell, after about 14 months at retail, sales for the game will look like this: 140k in Japan, 250k in Others, and 360k in America. When the eventual price drop happens, and the Christmas boost occurs, sales may be even a little higher; it depends.

So I see this game netting at least ~750k, and selling about ~1k a week worldwide after those first 14 months are over. It will meet Capcom expectations.

Well whatever the sales figure when the price is discounted you can add one to it because I definitely want this game but just can't afford full price. This is quite a stellar performance for a rail shooter at full price all things in consideration.

This is the best Rail game I have ever played and I am so happy it has now reached 500K like I knew it would. Also it will pass 800K and will hit 1 Million someday as it is still full price and Wii games are ALL about legs. I still don't know why publishers have to complain about the Wii after the game has only been out for like 3 weeks.

Why did Capcom kick off and complain about the wii so early on, about 4 weeks after this game was released. They then went on to say adult games don't say well on the wii. Sega the same and Bayonetta has been a flop on the PS3 compared to Madworld. The wii has got the audience, the audience just won't get second best..

capcom doesn't deserve to have huge success on wii, as they promised from the original release of the first ligh-gun game, that they would consider a definite possibility of porting resi 5 to wii. the original sold over a million and no show of a 5 title anywhere on wii. shame, shame. I protested by not buying darkside chronicles. maybe a lot of other people feel the same way
