Capcom:

Resident Evil 2 ( PS, 4,960,000)

Resident Evil 3 Nemesis ( PS, 3,500,000)

Resident Evil ( PS, 2,750,000)

Resident Evil 4, ( PS2, 2,000,000)


VGChartz: Resident Evil 2 (PS, 5.82m) Overtracked Resident Evil (PS, 5.05m) Way overtracked Resident Evil 3 (PS, 3.52m) Spot on Resident Evil 4 (PS2, 2.59m) Overtracked

RE and RE2 are where the special editions come into play. For example there are three versions of RE1 on the list that add up to roughly VGC's total. #5 + #34 Dual Shock Edition + #41 Director's Cut = 5.08M.

Capcom include each release seperatly for some reason so budget re-releases are not counted, same with special editions and so on...

wow there was 50 titles release for residant evil series,i didn't now that

Capcom, and other publishers, count each SKU as an individual title and each region is a different SKU. Then you have a new SkU for Special Editions, Direcotrs Cuts, Dual Shock editions (RE series mostly), budget releases, etc...

 

It adds up quickly.



The rEVOLution is not being televised

can we seriously update RE4Wii sales? It's been pretty obvious for quite a long time that's it's been quite overtracked.



currently playing: Skyward Sword, Mario Sunshine, Xenoblade Chronicles X

Sadly RE4 wii is overtracked :(



Around the Network

I guess this confirms Super Smash Bros. Melee as the best selling fighting game of all time, right? ^^

What's the difference between SF2 and SF2 Plus?

The latter for MD was better ( read more quickier ).

The difference in sales however reflects the fact that SF2 was thought exclusive on SNes in the beginning.

Also a lot of SF2 sales were from Japan were MD userbase was even lower than Nec's PcEnigne.

EDIT: Capcom's Aladin for Snes was a good game but nowhere near the excellence of Aladin for MD ( well this version was one  of the better MD release ever ! )
