I hope this is true! They deserve good sales for taking the series back to its roots. Been playing for a few hours so far and it pretty sweet. Just got to the first boss with the chainsaw. Getting really good!

What a way to taking it back to its roots!! I just finished it yesterday, after procastinating a lot about it (I was scared to play it to say the truth), and I can say its one of the best horror games Ive played (and I play a lot, Silent hill all of them, Amnesia, Deadspace, Outlast, etc etc).

RE6, Operation Racoon City, Umbrella Corps hurt the RE franchise. If not this probably will sell more.

I don't think that is the reason for the amount of sales. I think this genre of games people rather watch it in Youtube/Twich then actually play it... That is why

@MrSeijuurou This pretty much shows whats wrong with the gaming community. First complain how it isnt horror anymore and then they finally made a horror game and people are like "Hey lets dont support this game, we rather watch lets plays of it". Just look how many views that PewdiePie video got, friggin 8 million views. Damn what a world! -.-
