The lights are on
Capcom has already warned that sales for Resident Evil 6 were lower than expected during the release window, and now the company has revealed the new targets for both Resident Evil 6 as well as Devil May Cry.
Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 6 is expected to ship five million worldwide before the end of the fiscal year on March 31 – down from the forecast of seven million.
Similarly, the company is pulling back on its outlook for Devil May Cry down to 1.2 million from two million.

I'm not surprised they lowered RE6's expected shipping to 5 million. I still think it's a pretty good game though.
Don't fret Cappie, I'll buy DMC soon. Oh and dude, watch out for that snake monster thing!
I interpreted the title of the article as Capcom doing some sort major overhaul to Resident Evil 6 and also releasing new DmC action figures. The actual contents of the article was such a letdown.
This is what happens when your too quick on the gun.
Ouch, haven't had the chance to play DMC but RE6 is a good game so far. Not amazingly great. But still a pretty good game.
Both games are awesome. I'm 100% with Tim Turi on RE6, it is so much damn fun.
