has the worldwide sales figure been revealed yet? Is there a source?
VGChartz has it at 610k globally across both the PS3 and 360. This is HALF of the already lowered expectations Capcom had of 1.2 million, and only 12% of the initial expectations of 5 million.
Then again VGChartz is hardly the most trustworthy site, so take that as you will. Assuming those numbers are anywhere near the accurate number however, it's safe to assume that DmC was the blunder of the century.
Edit: VGChartz also has the DMC HD Collection currently outselling DmC. Granted that's been out almost 11 months, but assuming DmC sales pretty much come to a screeching halt and move extremely few copies from now on the HD Collection will have sold more than DmC, which I find so deliciously ironic.
VGC isn't exact, but it's usually close. At this point it's performing better than Bayonetta, so 1.5m+ total is likely.
Anyone who thought this would sell 5 million+ (IE: Outsell RE5) is insane. Bayonetta didn't even come close and MGR won't either. GoW:A might make it close to 5m though.
DMC HD Collection went right into the bargain bin and has been there ever since. It's not making cuuurrrrazzzzzy profit$$$. I find it ironic that all the haters agreed to go buy another copy of DMC HD just to show Capcom that they were ~wrong~ and then DMC HD never made it back into the top 50 on any of the charts.
