Im impressed by RE6 sales, considering all the problems reported. I still need to play it someday.

Yeah, people like to crap on RE6 on the internet, but it actually has alot of fans in reality, if you add up the original release plus the PS4/XB1 ports it's actually the 2nd bestselling game in the whole series currently after RE5. It's kind of like the Star Wars prequels or Spider-Man 3, people claim to hate it, but alot of them secretly like it and only pretend to hate on it because it's controversial to say you like it and they don't want to get called out for saying they like it. I mean the PS4/XB1 ports of RE6 even sold 2.3m copies already, more than the PS4/XB1 ports of RE4 and RE5 sold, so clearly alot of people like it since they bought it a 2nd time on PS4/XB1.

I personally would dig a proper sequel to RE6 released as a Res spinoff title by Capcom, with 3rd person view and more of an action focus like RE5 and RE6, rather than pure survival horror. RE7 largely ignored the plot threads they had set up with RE6 and it is set years later, with only one classic Res character returning, Chris, and it seems like RE8 will be the same story, with Chris being the only classic character to return. I want to know what is happening with characters like Leon, Claire, Ada, Jake, and Sherry after RE6. They have all these great classic characters that they are just sitting on currently, remakes aside.

sorry to say but re6 is the least popular game in the series. It only sold cause of the sucess of re5 and the discounted sales to those who weren't fully aware of the game's short comings.

If that was the case, the Res 6 PS4/XB1 ports wouldn't have sold more than the Res 4 and Res 5 ports. Clearly some people besides myself enjoy Res 6, they chose to buy the game twice. I actually like 6 more than 3 and 5 personally.

I agree wholeheartedly agree with shika,

Re6 wasn't survival horror but a hybrid third person action some horror coop game and it was magnificent at what did.

Thanks, I ight try the remaster at some point. I love the series the didnt like RE5 at all, stopped mid game due to clunky controls (no running and shooting) and that goddam companion, it was so annoying to play. I saw a RE6 video one of these days and it seemed to be actually not that bad. I might try Revelations 2 also some day.

Yeah, it has a similar gameplay style to 5, but they refined the actual shooter/action mechanics somewhat. I think the companions in 6 are better than Sheva in 5 as well, Chris' companion Piers is kind of meh, but Jake gets Sherry from Resident Evil 2 (who is an adult by that point) and Leon gets Helena, both of them are great.

Man Monster Hunter World's numbers are amazing. 17 Million Sold is considered an elite top dog in terms of sales for most major developers, and I'm sure the series expanded way more to western audiences. Based on the franchise's popularity now, Monster Hunter Rise looks to be a major system seller for the Switch even in regions outside of Japan and will sell amazingly.

Looking at those number for Monster Hunter World, it’s clear that Capcom will continue with the Multiplatform route from now on.

I can see MH Rise selling better than MH World when it gets ported to other devices.

MH Rise is hitting the list next time. We'll more or less see its first week shipments since it releases so close to the end of the quarter.

Just like the Switch

MH Rise will probably be behind MH World. With the help of the rumored PC version then it may sell more than MH World.
