The originals weren't great sellers so the remakes would probably do worse.
I don't know about that, RE REMake did pretty well on sales wise and it got good reviews too.
He's talking about the Outbreak games. IIRC, 1 sold just over 1 million and 2 sold a little over 600k. But I do think that'd double in today's day and age of gaming.
And despite what some people say, REmake and RE0 sold great for their limitations. If you sell 1.25 Million on a console with 20 Million install base, that means that 6% of the people who had that console had that game. Now imagine that attach rate with an instal base of 150 million that the PS2 had, it would've sold 6-9 million. Attach rates count, especially when the console the game is released on sells so low. It had the same attach rate as RE5/6 did on PS360. The old school games will still sell, and there's still a market for them.
Anxiously awaiting the next Mirror's Edge. Waiting for the day Capcom makes a true Survival Horror Resident Evil game again.
