@ Montana - I'd heard that that was the sold number. However I could be wrong. But the point still stands that this will do far more than just "scrape" over 1 mill. It's still selling well and we're just starting to get into the holiday season. And Wii sales seem to be climing a fair bit in NA as well, so we should see prolonged sales.

Why Keeper? Capcom recently announced that it had already sold over 1 mil. And that's even before this holiday season. This game should do well over one million.

Kind of unexpected that the second port could turn into the best selling version over the course of its life.

Alright so if its at 800k in actual sales then shipments are most likely around 900k-950k. After holiday season this game will easily be a million seller. Awesome.

Alright Europe/Other Sales should be up around 200k at least. So that would put us at 0.71 million now. Shipments probably up at 800k-850k.

Getting close to platinum. Probably after holiday season it'll get it.

I see now why people want RE5 for the Wii, these controls are irreplaceable. Dual analog sticks will not do I'm afraid.

RE4 is a must have game for the Wii and its continuous sales prove it.

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)

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.

@-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.
