Capcom hopes Dragon's Dogma will sell 10 million units...

I know this is old news but, hell, what else is there to talk about:

http://playstationlifestyle.net/2012/03/20/capcom-confident-in-dragons-dogma-hoping-to-sell-10-million/

Is it crazy, or are they on to something? Are you getting DD and if so, why?

I'll be picking up DD, but almost exclusively because of Hideaki Itsuno's involvement. The RE6 demo is nice, but I'll be buying it (Resident Evil) regardless. Plus, the demo doesn't drop with the game. If not for Itsuno directing, I'd be as far away from DD as I would a brush fire. I'm placing A LOT of faith in his resume and past experiences.

Has any single game ever sold 10 million copies? It won't reach a quarter of that, even over time.

i love these style of games but knowing scamcom i see they will cut the ending and then realess an ending DLC on the same month and other secret disk locked content mission

Actually yes. Many.

Anyway, the big publishers expect each and every game of their's to sell COD levels.

A Monster Hunter game where Capcom tries so hard to emulate western artistic design that they forgot to give the game its own identity, with little AI minions that following you around but somehow no co-op. The game is headed by Kobayashi, aka the guy who makes incomplete games (DMC4, Sengoku Basara 3 before Utage). Also given that this is Capcom it's not unlikely for an enhanced edition to come out.

Recipe for great success.

i dont know why companies like capcom is trying so hard to get the COD numbers (trying to appeal to the west), they end up failing instead. Dragon dogma is like monster hunter with a skyrim paint job. I am glad that some games like monster hunter remain in japan instead of getting westernize

Not that mosnter hunter is safe even if it remains in Japan. Tanaka Tsuyoshi (producer of original MonHun, as well as DMC2/3) left Capcom a while back. Yes, MonHun got/stayed good after he left, but I wonder who else would leave later on. So far they only lost, what, Kamiya, Mikami, Inaba, Clover studio, Inafune, and god knows who else.

Who do they have left anyways? Itsuno? Ono? Takumi? Kobayashi that makes half a game?

DD is a great game, I'll definitely purchase it. With that being said, you'd have to suffer from brain damage if you think it'll sell 10m units.
