Resident Evil: Revelations’ console and PC port sales hit 1 million

Saturday, 8th February 2014 18:51 GMT By Phil Owen

Resident Evil: Revelations did OK on 3DS, but the ports to PC, PS3 and 360 kicked it up a notch, as they say, and since those three versions of the game launched last summer 1 million copies of them have been sold to players. In fact, it’s up to 1.1 million, which is not bad. It’s not as good as the most recent Resident Evil film in probably any terms, but it’s still good.

    1.1 million for an install base of over 160 million is not that great.

    Capcom Unity:

    “the console/PC versons have passed the one-million mark in worldwide sales and are currently sitting pretty at 1.1 million overall.”

    “I’m still quite pleased Revelations could make the leap to 360, PS3, Wii U and PC as well.”

    I wonder why VG247 completely left off the Wii U version when Capcom clearly stated Wii U was in there as well?

    1.1 million for a port is very good.

    I’m hoping Capcom doesn’t mistakenly take this as a sign that consumers want what RE6 did more than what Revelations did, or that consumers only want Chris and Leon and should continue to completely exclude Jill and Claire like they did with RE6.

    Revelations didn’t get as high sales as RE6 because RE6 was hyped out the ass while Revelations wasn’t hyped much at all, and the fact it was a more expensive port of a game that came out a year prior for cheaper on a portable system likely put a lot of people off. I even remember a few people outright saying they weren’t shelling out the money for an HD port of a game they could get for cheaper on 3DS at a later date.

    Reveleations also wasn’t a very good game.

    You forgot to mention that. Say what you want about RE6, the gameplay mechanics were fucking solid and probably the best part about the game. Can’t be bothered to go back to standing still, just because I want to shoot.

    Face it weirdo, nobody gives a fuck about Jill and Claire or any of the characters for that matter.

    You could replace the entire staff and nobody would notice. Hell, they did that already, the Chris we saw in RE5, how much similarity did he have with the Chris from the previous games? And what about Leon in RE6? Did he look anything like the Leon we know from 2 or 4? No, not at all. Looks like the simply replaced his head with Dantes from DMC4.

    And still people played and liked them, never wondered why?

    Because nobody gives a shit.

    @ YoungZer0: Always with the arsehole comments… You are a complete knob aren’t you. Only a narrow minded shit like you would come out with a comment like that. So what you’re saying is that salarta isn’t entitled to an opinion?

    @ salarta: Agreed man, Revelations is the direction the series should be heading in instead of going all COD like everything else… and I would definitely like to see a bit more Jill and Claire in the mix.

    @Triggerhappy Don’t worry about YoungZer0, he’s a bit manic, among some of the people here that have developed a bit of a grudge against me. He especially doesn’t like it when I talk about how past female protagonists have been treated poorly and deserve more respect and better representation, particularly Jill and Claire.

    I think that Call of Duty is going out of style. The trend is shifting toward exploiting the survival horror genre now. We see it in games like Amnesia and DayZ and The Last Of Us, we saw it with how “Tomb Raider” completely changed the genre and starring character of the whole franchise to fit survival horror tropes and conventions, we see it with interest in The Evil Within. Consumer interest is shifting, and a few companies are already trying to jump on the bandwagon by doing to action franchises what Capcom and Konami did to survival horror franchises. The sooner Capcom brings Resident Evil back to its survival horror roots, the sooner they can benefit.

    @Triggerhappy Sorry, but who are you?

    And sure Shalashaska is entitled to his opinion, it’s just the repetition that successfully diminishes his argument. There was a time when I actually agreed with him about many things, but he keeps repeating himself and honestly, his obsession is getting seriously creepy.
