As much as I hate to use this tired analogy Justin Bieber sells millions of records does that make him a great singer? The Twilight books sold a truly phenomenal amount, does that make it some of the best literature ever written? The third Transformers film is like the fifth highest grossing film of all time, is it an utterly amazing piece of cinema? Not at all.
Shipped does not equal sold to consumers. Shipped means went out to stores; where they could just as easily sit on the shelves until they get dropped in price to move as be sold. It's the re-stock numbers that really show how well a game is selling.
Not to mention most big retailers will have a certain amount on sale or return as a standard policy for taking larger numbers day one.
Frankly, I don't care what happens with the game either way but at least get the facts straight in your head if you want to use them to make a point.
It really is disappointing that so many copies were sold. Resident Evil is now truly dead, there is no hope of ever returning to its roots. Call of Battlefield: Raccoon City sells more copies, so that's the formula they will stick to.
