HELL YES!!! This game deserves to sell!! I want a sequel.
Capcom must be real happy after this.
I enjoy the game but it just doesn't feel like RE to me
I wonder what the western stats look like.
Hahah I'm not surprised. RE6 is awesome. Totally awesome.
Wow. 360 games really don't sell well there. I say that because I don't have the evidence to say that it is actually the XBOX Hardware that didn't sell... but I bet.
A Japanese game selling well in Japan. Oh my God!
Not a big surprise. It's weird to see all the reviews for RE6. Most of the people I talked with enjoy the game...
To be expected. But to be honest, the mixed & negative reviews I see it's because of the staying away from it's original genre.
Tell me... how is the survival horror games selling? Amnesia and Slender don't count.
I think the game really needs a little more tweaking, but it's just fine. People need to stop looking at the cons ore than the pros.
Good for RE6.
