The lights are on
Capcom said Dragon's Dogma still managed to ship over 1 million copies despite not having huge success outside of Japan.
In the company's latest quarterly earnings report, it said, "In this business segment, Dragon’s Dogma, the first large-scale open world game for Capcom, struggled abroad, but its popularity in the more profitable domestic market exceeded expectations..." During its launch month in May, Dragon's Dogma only sold 92,000 units. A sequel seems likely at this point as Capcom said Dragon's Dogma is being turned into a franchise.
Additionally, Capcom said it shipped an additional 450,000 units of Resident Evil: Raccoon City for the quarter to retailers, bringing the total worldwide number to 2.1 million copies.
I have yet to play it. It seems like it is a good game
A shame because this game is really fun.
i am still waiting for the 10 million sold that the director was boasting here....this game will naver ever sell more than 5 million, and i am being generous.
Woot, I want Dragon's Dogma 2 naow!...or at least DLC that's worth a shite.
Dragon's Dogma would sell a lot better if they released actual DLC. I beat the game three times, but started getting bored half way through the second time. I really hope the sequel has a lot better story and more things to do. Other than replayability and features in the game, it was still very enjoyable.
Had a great time with this game. Just wish the DLC had more content to it than go fetch medals.
I believe some people here haven't gotten far enough in the game to earn the fast travel. They come in the form of port crystals and you can buy as many as you want, take it you have the cabbage ;)
Anyways I'm ready for a bigger, better sequel. The combat is slick, although I really disliked how the DLC was set up, the different sky medallion quests really are quite stupid to be honest. It just felt like it was cut out of the game, most likely was to. Once you are at lvl 30 things turn into a breeze though. Also someone at Capcom might want to work on the narrative for the next story. Great game overall
After playing Skyrim for ages, I have been tempted to get this for a while now. I think I just might do that now :)
This is really exciting news seeing as I just got done playing Dragon's Dogma before I hopped on the computer. Im not surprised it didnt do well but I wouldnt be surprised if the sequel got a game of the year award if they flushed out the story and gave the game the polish the first should of had.This IP could've given skyrim a run for its money the first time around if they would've done so but I guess we'll just have to wait for the next Dragon's dogma to see how much they listen to feedback on what needed improvement.
I'm surprised is struggled overseas. I thought it would do better. It probably was due to the lack of promotion for the game.
I dunno when yet, but i'm getting this game, & I live in the USA. I can't fathom why so few other Americans would be eyeballing this game. O_0
That is a damn shame. This is easily one of the best RPG's I've ever played. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes the genre.
Well, I, for one, loved Dragon's Dogma. I will definitely be playing it again.
I loved this game! I am beyond ecstatic that this is being turned into a franchise and going to get a sequel.
I just wish they wouldn't try to have this instead of Monster Hunter. I want Monster Hunter Capcom.
Im confused. Did it do well in Japan?
They say "despite not having huge success outside of Japan" and "its popularity in the more profitable domestic market exceeded expectations"
So domestic for Capcom meaning in Japan? I thought it did pretty well here. Most people I know couldn't find it when it released and had to track down a copy. I got the last copy at my local Gamestop on release day and it's a huge store in Boston.
Maybe I'm way off and this is clear to everyone else.
YAY! More operation Raccoon City! Because we need more bad games flooding the market! Where as Dragon's Dogma, a pretty good game with it's own flaws, gets no notice... that's so very, very sad.
