Resident Evil 6 ships 4.5 million copies


Resident Evil 6 has shipped over 4.5 million copies, a new company record according to developer Capcom.

Shipped numbers do not equate to sales, however given that the previous game, Resident Evil 5 went on to sell 5.8m, Capcom was hoping that demand would eventually see the game shift around 7 million copies, which is even higher than its best selling game ever, Street Fighter II on the SNES, which sold 6.3 million copies.

Resident Evil 6 launched worldwide this week, it has been met with some rather lukewarm reviews across the board, although whether these will affect sales remains to be seen.

You can read our review here.

I don't think it's going to sell that well, doubt it'll break SF2's record. Personally I'm really enjoying it though, it's loads better than 5 was, not quite as good as 4 though. The problem is it's getting panned far too much for not being a true survival horror game any more, and people will pay attention to these reviews, although a lot probably won't read them, just look at the score and decide on that.

Probably wont sell the 7 million copies they hope I think there is too much negativity around the game obviously Resident Evil has a big enough following to make sales seem reasonable. It will be interesting to see how the sales pan out on this one. Off topic how do you change your avatar picture. I go into options in my account choose a pic and click upload but nothing happens?

I'm pretty sure that was how I changed my avatar ages ago, but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment.

Yeah, I cant do it either. I tried multiple pictures aswell incase it was a size issue. Anyways, I personally dont care about the review scores. I think it looks fantastic. I'm dying to play the mode where you invade others games. Sounds like a mix of Left For Dead and Perfect Dark. I'm picking up the game next month for definate (that is if I dont win it here)

i doubt it will brake any records, i know alot of people we're waiting for the reviews before buying and it got panned in most reviews.

I think it will sell pretty good. No one I know has been put off by the scores at all including myself. My friend that bought it cant stop raving on about it. I'm sure the reviews will have some impact but the RE series I'm sure can carry itself pretty well

4.5 million already, thats pretty good going. If they market this strongly in the continuing lead up to Xmas and it drops £10 which it probably will in many deals before Xmas they might hit the target. Either way, not bad at all.

I dont trust those reviews at all. Everyone who bought it that isnt a reviewer has said exactly the same thing. Well, almost everyone anyway. In my eyes, it would take a lot of work for Resident Evil to go wrong so I really doubt I'm going to dislike this one

I have to say I was very underwhelmed by the demo and I won't be buying this. I may rent it at some stage though. I had the same feeling with RE5 and not played that yet neither.

I was one of those 4.5 million copies, and have yet to actually play the game, since my backlog of games is rather large (to say the least!) Will get working on playing it soon enough. I purchased the No Hope Left edition from Gamestop and was massively disappointed with the packaging. If only you guys did the NHL edition, it would have probably been much better!

I am glad I was a Day-1 buyer of Resident Evil 6. Even though it is a bit of a convoluted mess, it was still a fun experience. If Resident Evil 7 was developed, I hope that they realise just how well Leon's campaign worked.
