are you seriously trying to use that as an argument?

that's like resident evil being rebooted and people saying the reboot didn't sell as many as re4 or whatnot.

He's just trolling for a response as usual. The article gives reason for DMC4's sales.

DmC's JP launch sales are on par with Bayonetta's launch sales, which is about what I expected. Bayonetta is still the reigning queen of H&S though.

DmC is lucky for the numbers it has. Look around. It had no real competition this month. Next month you have Dead Space 3 and Metal Gear Rising; both games will enjoy higher sales for obvious reasons:

-Dead Space is a 3rd person shooter, does horror better than RE, and has multiplayer
-Metal Gear is well....Metal Gear, like final fantasy it will sell on its name alone

Then when March hits PS3 users will have a new God of War, and love it or hate it that series for being Sony exclusive always puts up numbers.

I'm not hating on DmC here, this is simply reality.

correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't DmC the first big budget, highly anticipated game released this year? and this is after a gap in big budget games too?

so it should do much better...

also, i thought everyone knew that the reason DMC4 did so well was because DMC3 was such a good game. the bundle and first DMC on next gen aren't the main reason why DMC4 did so well. if anything, the bundling caused more PS3 sales than the other way round.
if only considering the effects the reception of DMC4 has on DmC sales, DmC should have sold more copies on release.

Isn't Dead Space 3 just a spinoff of Lost Planet?

Oh, and guess what didn't sell well at all?

You guessed it, Bayonetta!
