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.
Read this statement every time a game's sales start going sour, last game being RE6, and the game before being TOR --- ~Gujin http://i39.tinypic.com/v830c3.jpg http://i45.tinypic.com/34o99hk.jpg http://i49.tinypic.com/23j1t9z.gif
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 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..
