Its over, this game was a financial disaster
Rising_shadow posted...Let's talk math then. Let's say Capcom sold say, 9 million copies of all previous DMC games altogether. Say they sold them each for 10 dollars. 9 times 10. That's 90 million. Except the vast majority of new games go on sale for around 60 dollars. They also sell around 80% of their total lifetime sales in the first month of release as most interested people will typically buy something they want soon after release. That means most sales are made at prices close to that 60 dollar mark.
That's not quite how it's done. As I pointed out earlier in the thread, and another thread, and it's ultimately irrelevant to the original discussion. To make billions of yen for Capcom, all the games needed to bring in for profit is around 20 million U.S dollars. Which the games most assuredly did when taking all their incarnations into account. Even a conservative estimate of DMC4 alone puts it close to half of that by itself, even after a huge chunk is removed to pay all proper parties.
