Of course, it isn't really at 1M in America. I can't understand why games are adjusted downwards halfway. If you know the numbers are 600K too high, why adjust downwards only 250K?

This game has only shipped 1.25M WW through the end of March. It used to be listed above 1.8M, but was adjusted downwards incompletely.

Something that relates to the RE5 story that would make people want to buy both versions would be nice.

@ Man

It would not surprise me if it still was overtracked, but it should not be with as much as before.

It was lowered by more then 50k as it took a few weeks or more to regain it's former number.

Great sales anyway and it makes me happy to follow the numbers on it's way up!

It would perhaps be best that RE5 be saved for Nintendo's next console and handled in the way RE4: Wii Edition was. A Wii version of RE5 just couldn't compete with the 360/PS3 versions given the demographic the game is targeted for.

I can't believe this is still selling at this rate. Capcom estimated sales of only around 400,000 before it launched on the Wii.


And they don't want to make an alternate RE5 for the Wii? Terrible.

They should at least craft us a new game, built on the RE5 (which is only a revamped RE4) engine.

Why hasn't this game been adjusted downwards yet?

We know for a fact that it had only shipped 1.15M through the end of the year. And it probably wasn't in a state of constant sell-out. So VGC's 1.33M through Dec. 28 is likely a good 300K overtracked. I would guess that by the end of March, shipments will only be up to 1.3 or 1.35M.

@TWRoO
Hmm...I naturally assumed that Capcom would include the 1.15 million number in their Q3 press release, but that doesn't seem to be the case (maybe the 150k increase wasn't significant enough to mention as compared to the 1 million milestone in the press release you posted). But it is indeed mentioned on their website. (http://ir.capcom.co.jp/english/data/million.html)
I recall receiving this info from neogaf when it was first posted on Capcom's website, sometime in February.

Not sure where you got that 1.15 million number, because I just went to Capcoms website and found that they had shipped 1 million before October 30th... I seriously doubt they only shipped 150k over the two Christmas months (also the press release would obviously be at least a few days after the actual million was shipped)

@ Kenkaku

This is Capcom's third quarter of their FISCAL year which begins April 1, 2007 and ends March 31, 2008. Become informed before you discredit someone. On another note, I would like nothing better than for RE4 Wii to perform exceptionally relative to previous versions since I own it and would love another one. But facts don't lie and 1.6 million is beyond the realm of possibility.

Maybe it could happen, RE 4: Ps2 is old enough to start being phased out from some game shelves. RE: 4 Wii hasn't spent ant time in the budget bin at all (20 or less games) and is still selling at it's original price. Given enough time and an eventual price cut, Re:4 Wii should catch up some to the Ps2, but it is very far away. It can more than likely outsell the Gamecube version, which is excellent for a several year old port.

I think Umbrella Chronicles will be pretty close. It got just as much, if not more, hype than Resident Evil 4 Wii. Capcom also said in a report that Umbrella Chronicles sold about 70,000 copies in Japan on its first day, whereas RE4 got about 40,000 in its first week (based on this site). But across the world, who knows. It's not like it's conflicting with the main series.

Hmm 750k shipped WW. We have 440k sold here. So that means for that shipment number to work, on a game that is supposedly saling at a pretty steady pace which means shipments will be closer rather than farther away from actual sales, will put Europe/Other at about 210k. Nice even 650k. 100k off. Anywhere from 600k-650k is probably where its at. So anywhere from 160k-210k. Possibly a little more upwards but we get the drift.

This game is going to ship more than a million. I just don't see how it couldn't haha. Not with in America it's looking like it'll survive to the holiday season. All it really needs to sale is 800-850k worldwide to have 1 million shipped.

I guess this game has sold (shipped) 750K WW according to Capcom. That comes via GoNintendo via Cubed3, though, so take it for what it's worth.

Hopefully this game can reach 1,000,000 in sales. That would be pretty impressive. With luck, Capcom will be encouraged to bring more RE games to Wii, regardless of how UC sells.

I played Resident Evil 4 on GC twice and in the end I was like "very good but...". Honestly, I'm playing for the 5th time on Wii in Professional mode and I'm OMG!!! Much, much better than the other versions. In my top10 games of all time.

I love this game. Not being a fanboy, I beat it originally on the cube when it came out. I liked it then, just liked nothing special. On the Wii though, it makes me speculate the possibilities of shooters being abundant on the Wii. The controls are tight. It feels natural to play with your hands apart, each on on an arm rest of a lazy boy. 9.5/10 for the genre, 8.5/10 as a wii game. Must-have for the Wii library!

Man I can't wait for a multiplayer shooter with the fun factor of Goldeneye to come out for the wii...Proximity mines ftw.

This the best version of one of the greatest game ever. Wiimote REALLY adds to the feeling and thus it's recommended buy even if you already own PS2 or Cube version.

It also contains all the extras from PS2 version and only downside (the reason why it's not going to get perfect 10 from me) is that graphics are not much different from Cube version even though Wii is more powerful.

That's the boxart we have in Australia, and I assume it's the same as Europe.

I don't know why we always get different boxarts, but sometimes it's really for the etter (this and Metal Slug Anthology are two prime examples) but sometimes it's much worse (Wind Waker)

If they released a Player's Choice Edition of this game due to hig sales, how much would it cost? 15$?

I'd suspect about 150k-175k has been sold in Europe/other. So that would put it at about .55 million sold.

I think it'll continue to sell well in America and maybe by the end of th year it will have sold 500k there. Probably end at 250k in Europe and 150k in Japan. Total of 900k. Shipments should push this title platinum. Now wouldnt that be interesting.

Fantastic. I'm not keen on FPS', but TPS' can be good, and this one certainly is. Firstly, I've never played a RE game before on any console (which is why I had to start over when I realised I had been reckless with my ammo early on, only to find out that ammo becomes quite scarce later on), so I came with no real expectations.

The control mechanism really makes this game, it has to be the best use for the Wiimote so far in my opinion, it's similar to Time Crisis in that you point and shoot with the Wiimote as you do with the Crisis gun, but you also control Leon with the nunchuck which gives you much greater flexibility to determine your own actions.

It was fun and engrossing (I completed it within a few days (total time - 14 hours)), but not just for myself, both of my parents are hooked as well. My dad has so far spent 18 hours on it, and my mum 5, so it certainly retains the broad appeal of the Wii despite posts on these forums claiming that it's appealing to the hardcore gamer as some sort of compensation for the low-substance games.

There is also a lot of content, besides the main game itself (which gamers with past RE experience and a quicker grasp of the controls could complete in well under 10 hours) which could be quite short, you also get all of the additional content from the previous releases.

On the downside, the graphics are good for a Wii game, which could be a problem if you have a HD tv and are used to the graphics from a 360 and ps3, but which is a treat if you're used to the likes of Wii sports and play. It further reinforces my wish that the Wii was HD, but we can't have it all I suppose.

Another downside is probably the atmosphere of the game. Previous RE games apparently have a much more chilling and darker atmosphere. All the way through this is very camp, so don't come to it expecting a scary atmosphere. It has it's moments that will make you jump (particularly where you have to respond quickly by flailing the Wiimote around).

On the whole this is without a doubt my favourite Wii game thus far. I don't own Zelda yet, which may eclipse this, but we shall see. It certainly has a lot to live up to ;)

I never before played a shooter on a console, but I picked up RE4 for the Wii. I wanted to start gaming a little bit and found myself playing until deep in the night. This game is great.

One thing: I had a blinking green line on the bottom if I used PAL (576i). The Wii is connected via RGB-cable. The problem disappeared as I switched the Wii to 60Hz-Mode (480i). Thats OK, I can play. But if someone discovered how to resolve the problem, I would be happy to hear about it, because I want to play in the higher resolution, if possible.

no it's not fair. You cannot rate a game that you have not played.
unfortunately, there will always be people who abuse the system. but we can only hope that the majority will see through and the real worth of the game will be shown.
I will, of course, rate this game once I buy it and play it =)

The controls are going to be completely different, so there is no sense in rating the game yet if you have only played the GC and PS2 versions.

@-girgosz- Well, the HD port wasn't better than the Wii version. Other than the resolution, the HD port (PS3) had a choppy framerate and compressed audio. Capcom pulled a lazy job with that "remake" of RE4. The Wii version still is the best port of the game. The controls (you got options as how to play it) is something that cannot be beat.
