Sales figures?

#1PunkMcThrustPosted 4/22/2013 1:30:42 AM
So what are the sales at now? Last I heard it was struggling to break 700k, but the wikipedia page says 1.15 million have been sold but I HIGHLY doubt that.

Has anything changed in that regard? I mean the game only sold 50k all platforms worldwide in February and it sold between 600-750k in the first month, how could it have hit 1.15 million?

And that would mean that the game hit Capcom's re-re-re-revised sales expectations. So what happened? What's the actual sales at?

If that's so the Wikipedia article should be corrected.

Also that's hilarious, they revised their shipped copies to the amount that they actually shipped so they could paint it to look like they sort of succeeded.

no. Refunds were so high, so Capcom was forced to partially payed them from their own pocket. Guy who works in Gamestop told about it.

1.15 million is their shipment forecast.

It's still stuck in that 700K~ spot.

You can tell a game fails when they list how much it shipped instead of sold. Like XIII-2
