Of course sales dont mean anything. Just Look at earthbound and Radiant historia. Those games sold like crap. Yet nowadays their legends among video games. Because like i said. People were to blinded by nostalgia to even try it out. :P
................................... What? What do Earthbound and Radiant Historia not selling well have to do with being blinded by nostalgia?
George Carlin~ Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist. My Father~ Failure is ALWAYS an option... but giving up is not.
The GameFAQs split between pros and antis may be the only thing about this game that wasn't paid by Capcom. And look - the Anti board is still alive and well, seething with hatred over hair, whereas the Pro board has just one page of topics, half of which proclaim that the game is dead.
In contrast, both the PS3 and the much less active X360 boards for MGR discuss the game itself. Including the gameplay, just like how it was on DMC boards in the better days. You didn't see that on DmC boards even when there wasn't a single action game to rival it, back when it first came out.
I think that tells you a lot more about the game than paid reviews and honest sales.
