DmC failed to spur sales in the US as well...

DmC:

360 version: 120,285
PS3 version: 163,615


Total: 283,900



Devil May Cry 4:

360 version: 228,784
PS3 version: 146,336


Total: 375,120



Despite debuting at #1 with NO competition (no new console games), and having a 3-day advantage over DMC4, it still failed to outsell ANY of its predecessors. No new fanbase was made here. It only alienated the old one.

You can't expect stellar results when the majority of it's "fans" are spewing venom, web-wide.

Maybe this will make Capcom see that people don't want this crap, we want a DMC5.

You want conformity, not DMC5, and i'm sure they'll realise that.

The series itself is dead, honestly. People will blame DmC for this, but it honestly wore itself out with 3. There's only so much you can do with the source material, and they pretty much did it all in 1 and 3.
