As I once said. 2 million. Lifetime sales. No more. No less.
These days games sell the most in their first month so we cannot expect any surge in the future. By the look of the way the sales are going, it doesn't looks like it will even reach 2 million which itself is a failure because DMC4 sold 2.6 million with less than 40 million installed base of PS3 and XBOX360. DmC had an available installed base of more than 140 million to sell to so it had a much greater opportunity. CAPCOM and Ninja Theory are mum on the sales performance and we do not see any chest thumping so it can be said they are disappointed.
i bet nobody watches the sales of any other game this closely
Not many games pose a threat to their predecessors.
Like Capcom will ever make another DMC period if this game flops. They didn't even want to make a fifth. --- Where most strive and train to get it right, I will relentlessly train so I never get it wrong.
