HnS genre is not dead; DmC was just bad. MGR sales are a proof.

MGR sales for UK are in and the game went head to head with Crysis 3 in its debut week by taking the second spot by a difference of only 5,500 units. Kojima himself has stated that the game is selling well worldwide. We can all conclude that the HnS genre is healthy and good games by good developers do sell. DmC was just a bad decision by CAPCOM.

Except there's no numbers...And the UK charts are horrific sales wise.

#1 spot was probably taken with only 90k-100k...and that's being generous.

sales don't make a game any good, MGR is a disgrace to the MGS franchise and its a poor, repetitive experience that i'd like to forget about. Even DmC was better lol
