Resident Evil on a tear…


Capcom has recently announced that initial shipments of their latest iteration in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil 5, have reached just over 4 million units.  This makes this the biggest launch in the series to date contributing to total game franchise sales of 40 million units.

Not just video games, Resident Evil have also made a strong impact in the box office.  The Mila Jovovich movies have raked in a total $300 million to date, and the direct to video (everywhere expect Asia where it enjoyed a theatrical release) CG movie has already shipped over 1.5 million copies across DVD, Blu-Ray, and UMD formats.

I think it’s safe to assume that zombies will always be a part of Capcoms’ future, which is fine by us.  Sean C.
