Stopped reading at "you fans were in lala land because to you thought dmc4 was just perfect" Nope, I didn't and I don't know many that do. It was good, definitley could've been better but it brought up a lot of questions. It sold 2.7 million copies, which according to this chart is more than any DMC had sold before.

Even if that's due to it being available for both PS3 and 360, that's pretty decent. So no it didn't kill the series, Capcom's greed did.


damn DMC3 was the lowest selling one. Guess DMC2 scared people away. I wonder if those sales include the special edition.

When it shows DMC 3, is it including the Special Edition? How do the sales of the fifth anniversary boxset figure in?

DMC 4 was a trash game. I played the heck out of DMC 3, I knew how the mechanics of the game worked, and I beat the game on DMD mode. That being said, I'm shocked the OP's friend who played the whole series never heard of jump canceling. I'm guessing your friend just beat the games on normal mode, because you need to know the mechanics very well at the toughest difficulties.

DMC 4 left me soooo disappointed though

Platinum may know how to make a good game

And that's good enough for me.

So my question is, why put all that in there if only a few people get it?


This is just... the most perfect snapshot of people that like this game.

Nope. Something else to note is that charts from 2008. I did some further research and found stats from 2012.
DMC1- 2.99 Million
DMC2- 1.97 Million
DMC3- 2.09 Million
DMC3 SE- 2.21 Million
DMC4(Both Platforms)- 3.42 Million
DMC HD- 550,000

Remember these are all worldwide. No stats on the fifth anniversary boxset though. In total the series has sold 12.54 Million games. I'm sort of confused about DMC4 though because that's a pretty big boost from the 2.7 million Capcom complained about when they just announced the reboot.

DMC4 is the best seller because DMC3 started bringing in the fangirls.
That and they did a gj promoting it. I dont mind DMC4 as its leagues better than DMC2 anyway

(I disagree with OP, the soul of DMC still lives on through a certain witch...)

but besides the point, we lived through DMC2 so we're gonna go through another DMC2.
Its not the end of the effin world.

A proper discussion is seeming to be derailed by immature remarks, ad hominem, statements without any basis, made up statistics, heavy bias, stupidity and touch of arrogance.

Oh wait, this is gamefaqs. Carry on.
