DMC second week global sales dropped 75% according to VGChartz

I've expected this game to do poorly all along but this massive drop has really surprised me. We all know about poor 2nd week UK and Japan sales but USA sales dropped even more! Second week USA sales for the ps3/xbox360 are 28,859/43,406 respectively. Note that first week sales were 163,615/183,109.

Hopefully the poor sales would be enough to teach NT/Capcom a lesson and make them think twice before they mock/insult fans.

Global figures are as follows:

(PS3)..........Week.......Weekly.........Change
......................1...........362,982..........N/A
......................2............86,412.........-76.2%

(Xbox360)...Week........Weekly........Change
......................1............183,109.........N/A
......................2..............43,406.......-76.3%

Total global sales after 2 weeks (PS3)449,394+(Xbox360)226,515=675,909

The MAIN reason why I (and seems like most of fans) didn't buy this game is because there is NOT DANTE.

VGchartz is not a reliable source.

Read this statement every time a game's sales start going sour, last game being RE6, and the game before being TOR

I didn't buy it because it sucked. Etnad had very little to do with it.

Any other reliable source that you may able to provide right now? NONE of the sales estimates are ever completely accurate. However, they do provide a general idea of things. It is not like VGChartz may list a multimillion seller as a sub-million seller or vice versa.

Anytime VGChartz has positive sales news = HOORAY

Anytime VGChartz has negative sales news = Its unreliable

It still is pretty bad to use VGchartz... but most people use it because it has all the data displayed easily (NPD doesn't do that). Curse your marketing team VGchartz..

But yah everyone wait for the NPD. I bet VGChartz samples like an insanely low percentage of the actual market (lol) and extrapolates those numbers... as opossed to NPD which probably has a good percentage of the numbers..

I honestly hate you people have done, look what your silly bigoted hate has done.

This series demise is your fault, not the developer's. They made a quality video game you selfish people cannibalized it. You told people who were interested in getting it not to.

A guy working at gamestop was actually discouraging me from pre odering it, told me it was an abomination, I hope the guy loses his job.

If you have joined this awful hate train you should be ashamed of yourselves.

There is no reason in hell that this game franchise has to end because a bunch of hateful people, but sadly it is looking the case.

I will never forgive you for killing the series and I do mean everything devil may cry, its apparent to Capcom now that it just isnt worth it anymore. I hope you are all proud of yourselves.
