With numbers like that I'm amazed they didn't can the series before 4. Lucky they sold as much of 4 as they did or not even this derpboot would be happening.


Those are actually good sales though...


I mean the fact that each game sold less and less. 3, arguably the best, sold the least. Clearly it was a trend seeming to form, there.


DMC2 soled well because of DMC1's reputation.
DMC3 soled badly because DMC2's reputation.
DMC4 soled well because of DMC3's reputation.

There's a pattern there.


"soled"? Really?

This guy has it right.

People were like MAN DMC2 ! I need to buy it! It sure improved a lot.

Same stuff with Resident Evil. 5 and 6 weren't really good games, but they sold based on their reputation.

Cause they saw other action games selling more. Naturally, Capcom wanted a piece of that pie.

Just like they did with Resident Evil after they saw the Call of Duty sales numbers.


terrible logic. Resident Evil 6 is nothing like CoD. Anyone who says it is never played CoD or is just plain dumb.

Yes it doesn't make sense; but when has Capcom ever made sense?

Pay attention to the whole discussion.... I was saying that I was amazed that the series wasn't canned after 3 due to falling sales. Though if it discludes subsequent releases, then we don't have the numbers on SE. Which does make the point rather invalid.


They didn't can it due to it's high praise among the community. Honestly if they'd advertised DMC4 like they did RE:ORC and RE6 then it would have probably sold another mil at least.

It's an alternate continuity and Capcom said that they will decide which series will continue after DmC will be out. If it's not a reboot I don't know what is.
