That's pretty weak since Xbox players weren't really buying Final Fantasy XV (which was a week earlier) either

I understand that other games under perform. But this game screams XBox. What is going on? If the XBox fan base is not buying software, how does Microsoft expect to make the Scorpio a necessity?

The Xbox crowd only seem to like Gears, Halo, Battlefield and COD these days.

Well if you look at all the million seller you'll see more than shooters. Shooters are basically the most popular games on PS4 and X1, same for PS3 and 360.

I had no idea DR4 was made by Sony Interactive Entertainment. All this time I thought it was a Capcom game. Makes it even stranger that it's Xbox exclusive.

Ssld better than DR2 Fw and with digital it should be higher than DR1 but still lower than DR3.

I wanted to buy the game, but they made way too many changes that in my opinion makes this game not a fun Dead Rising game.

That seems a bit poor. Of course we know Capcom has commitment issues when it comes to exclusivity, which I say as a good thing! I wish third parties would be more cautious about the prospect.

Theres a lot of risk aversion industry wide these days.

Indeed. Makes me wonder just how much deals like these cost Microsoft and Sony, and how many of them end up paying off.

Didn't this sell decently in the UK? Why would it do worse in the US or WW? We'll see with the NPD numbers this week.

Well DR4 sold better than TLG in the UK, but the opposite was true in the US according to vgchartz, which I don't see as likely.
